See that's the fundamental difference. I do not want my horse to pee inside. There's no reason she cannot go outside to pee and come back in to a warm comfortable stall. Her turnout is designed to be a horse litter box with specific areas to pee and poop outside. To me, why would I want to encourage her to pee inside? There is nothing positive nor nothing to gain by my mare peeing indoors. And since horses don't like to pee where it splashes and in turn causes urine burns, why accommodate behavior I'm looking prevent.
She has a specific place to poop and to pee and to lay down and they are all different areas she has free access to from her stall. That in conjunction with her track paddock she actually has more specialized areas she uses. She has a sand pit to roll in an obstacle course to play in and grass patch to graze or sleep in.
Like I said, I have no practical reason to WANT
her to pee indoors, so I don't encourage it, and I only use a scoop of puffed wood pellets; only enough to absorb stray rain or enough to act as a sweeping compound for anything she may track in. The stall mats are more than enough comfort for her to lay down, and she does, but with a 3 month old foal who literally crawls on her if she does, for practicality purposes she doesn't do it a lot right now.
