I am a new member and also a new horse owner who is looking for some advice.
We have an older barn that was previously used (many years ago) for cows...gutters still there along with the concrete that they stood on, but with age etc has cracked and is not very level.. we put in sand to level things out (just in the spots where the concrete was not level) but are considering adding stonedust on top of the sand to level things even further and then possibly adding stall mats.
Our plan is to let the horses come and go from the barn as they please...since we got them a week ago we have been putting them in the barn at night to give them a chance to learn the fence lines and settle in etc before letting them come and go on their own.
My question is how much stonedust does it take to make a good base and should I dampen it after it is put down?
Thank you in advance for all assistance.
