Thanks again everyone! I gained a lot of info from your posts!

I've decided to spend a weeked leveling and tampering the stalls with water. Then I'll let it "sit" for a week with all of the barn doors and windows open.

I'll actually buy mats for one of the stalls and try it out.

Thanks again,

I would add lime to it. It hardens when it gets wet. It is commonly used in stalls and it is inexpensive by the truckload

But isn't lime really caustic? Or whatever?

There may be different kinds of lime but it is typically the base of stalls and is reffered to as barn lime. I have used it regularly. I did a search on line but couldn't find the differences.
