If a horse makes mulch of their bedding, they are in too long, claustrophic/uncomfortable, or there is too much activity around them. Being social creatures they want to be a part of it.
Our horses come in between 9 and 10 p.m. They are turned out again between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. Grain and hay are waiting in the stalls, they come in, we sweep and lights out. They are quietly muching hay when the lights go out. In the morning I grain, turn out and clean stalls. We have very few trashed stalls. It's a good way for me to determine how the horse is. A stall that was walked all night tells me the horse is agitated about something or not feeling well.
