Smile Looking for shavings/sawdust in Charlotte!

Hi evereyone,
I hope that I can find a local woodworker/craftsman (Charlotte/Concord, NC area) that might need to get rid of excess shavings and/or sawdust! I have a small 5 horse barn and am looking for stall shavings. I would only need about a 1/2 ton truck load every month. I'm willing to pay for delivery too! If you can help me (and...I can help you!!!!) please email me: [email protected]

Thanks,
Cindy
Concord, NC

Wink A little more about Cinbar.

Aside from owning a horse barn, I am also an artist. I draw with Prisma- colored pencils and paint with oils and watercolor. Usually it's on a heavy paper but more recently on wood boxes, plaques etc. The colored pencils look REALLY nice on wood-they blend well. I incorporate the wood grain into the subject. When I'm done I usually coat it with a resin.
I am also interested in doing some "sculpture" or actually building using branches and pieces of wood to form things like animals.
Most of my art is animals, nature and people. Don't care too much for the abstract!
Thanks!:smile

Cinbar,

Too bad you aren't in S.E. Texas. I'd let you have the stuff that keeps magically appearing in my cyclone every couple of weeks or so...

Good to see a fellow artist on board... But I am a bit more abstract... LOML doesn't quite get my stuff either...

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com

Cindy - good luck on the shavings - I think I would stay away from saw dust - as with humans it could get into your animals lungs. Also be sure that the shavings are not from toxic wood - or wood that has oil added to it. Could make your horses sick.

Or kill them. Welcome Cindy, I am sure you already know about walnut shavings being a horse owner but I am throwing this out there for general knowledge. http://www.showhorsepromotions.com/walnutshaving.htm
