Just curious Nicole but is that a new barn/business for him? Just because there are so many stalls but your the only boarder.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

If our horses are in i skip out every morning (take wet bedding and poo out) and replace bedding and same again at night. totally refresh bedding once or twice a week just depending how bad it is. It's very rare our horses are in at all, only if the weather is very severe. 4 stables to be done if they are in.

should i or should i not.........

So majority is probably daily?

Lol, I lose sleep on wednesdays when I'm at my dad's knowing I couldn't do stalls every wednesday....not entirely rational, but I'm a bit of a clean freak when it comes to the barn. If my mom throws hay on the stall floors instead of my color-coordinated hay bags, sometimes it reduces me to tears

The property belongs to his father who moved to Texas 5 years ago and left it empty till this winter when we moved into it to get out of the cold Alberta weather. Back in the day when it was being used full time and auctions there every weekend (its set up for a sale barn) then there was more boarders. Now its only clients horses in for training and the trainers personal horses. I just bought a horse off of him so thatís why my horse is still there.

My horses don't have individual stalls. They share a small barn with each other but are rarely in there unless it's cold. The barn is open for them to use all day if they please. I am not able to go up and see them every single day but it's about every other day or every two days that the barn gets cleaned if there is anything in there.

We have some horses that are stalled 24hrs a day either due to weather or injury, their stalls are cleaned twice a day.

Otherwise stalls are cleaned daily. Turnouts, round pen and arenas are also picked up daily.

I board my horses. At my barn at home, there are about 14 stalls and horses come in during the day if they are to be ridden. Stalls get cleaned 2-4 times a day. You normally clean your own stall, but if you can't get out, it will be cleaned for you.

Here all the horses are out 24/7 and only stay in if there is a health issue. The horses that come in the stalls are usually greenies learning to accept being in a stall or boarder horses to eat their supplements. There are 7 stalls in the main barn. The stalls are thoroughly cleaned and re-bedded (if needed) once daily. The stalls are cleaned for you.

We have 15 stalls. Our trainer cleans them in the morning after feeding and turnouts they are out until dinner time. Then they come inside for dinner and lessons. She then turns them out at night and brings them in the morning for breakfast. REPEAT

My horse at home. Stays in all day. Out all night. His stall gets cleaned 2 or 3 times a day. Once at breakfast, once at lunch (maybe) and then at dinner where I throw him out into the pasture.
