one talented horse

I have a gelding who has a special talent..he seems to be able to consistently hang manure on his back stall wall. The walls are made of oak..the free stuff can be scraped when dry..does any one have suggestions on more thorough cleaning of the wood. I thought of power washing but can't get passed the thought of the incredible mess that would cause thanks for your time

I used to have a horse that had that very same talent. I got a cheap straw broom from a dollar store and cut the bristles shorter to make it really stiff. Then I used that to scrub off the really stuck on bits with a dip into a bucket of soapy water. It makes a bit of a mess, but if you do it just before a stall strip, you don't add too much extra than you would be stripping out anyway.

I like to think of it as "Wall Art." Cats paint, chimps paint, elephants paint, why not horses? What if we fed them blueberries and raspberries and lemons, and got multi-colored poop to coat the stall walls? Could be attractive. On second thought, maybe cutting a broom short is the better policy.

Why not staple up a piece of good heavy plastic. Yard goods stores sell it as table cloth weight. The stuff is tough as it is much thicker than vapor barrier. It's thick enough that it doesn't fold flat. For maybe $8 it might save you a lot of work.
