    Oh wow. 5 bags! Luxury!
    When I was at CARD every stall, except one, got 1/2 bag every morning. They were pretty much emptied after mucking, and with a tight budget and all *shrugs*. The horses were out nearly all day, but I don't recall seeing any of the horses ever laying down in the stalls.
    There are mats in all the stalls too. I think they were completely changed weekly.

    For those of you that are stripping the bedding on a monthly or so basis, how are you disposing of that old bedding? We spread our manure every day or two which of course contains a small amount of bedding but I don't think I want to try and run the whole load of old bedding through the spreader.

    Thanks for all your replies to this thread!!

    I have 3 horses in our stalls right now. Blue and Ariel and Airess. Blue's stall never gets totally stripped, but is mucked everyday. Ariel and Airess's stall is always very dirty and is almost striped daily. We have EquiTare flooring which absorbs shock and airets pee spots, so we never have to put lime down and such.

    Starting with a clean stall, I put 6 wheelbarrows in (2 on the floor and 4 on the walls). I change it every 3-4 weeks depending on weather.
