    My thought is that she is hungry and using her un-muzzled time to eat whatever she can put into her belly, and it happens to be shavings because there is no hay.

    I would provide more forage for her in general, even if its forage of poor quality (nutrition wise, I don't mean moldy or dusty hay, just hay that will fill her tummy wtihout providing too many calories).
