Putting saw dust/shavings in a muddy corral
My shared corral is at the bottom of a slight hill, enough that the snow melting in the bush is still running straight into out corral. The horses have nothing but mud to walk in, and no access to a stall.
For $400 for a 25t load of gravel that won't get us very far, it is going to get expensive quick. But for free, I can have as many loads of wood shavings and sawdust as I can haul away from a local manufacturing plant.
I was just wondering opinions, and concerns, as I am getting concerned about being in a wet environment constantly. I wouldn't be able to do the entire corral but enough that they would be able to have a place to get high and dry.
I worry about the saw dust, but they will turn it in quickly, and my husband has offered to bring his quad out to help turn it and it wouldn't be flying around for long.
