This caught my attention for 2 reasons. Out here they always use either asphalt flooring or cement at the fair grounds where we go to show and since they generally require that you buy your bedding at the show for twice what you pay at home, I bought those lightweight rubber mats with the holes in them, like you find in a wash rack, and I put them down in my horses stall first. Then I bed on top of that, only takes about 15 mins per stall that way. When we leave, I toss the bedding to the side and yank out my mats, hose 'em off and off we go.
Now did you SERIOUSLY mean that you strip those rental stalls after a show????!!!!
When they're charging me $100 for the weekend to stall, they can dayum well bring the tractor through when I'm gone and strip those stalls themselves!
