Stall Mats?

Hey there guys and gals!
I have a few questions about mats for stalls. I am getting my first horse this week, as you might have read in a few of my other threads. She is recovering from a pretty bad case of trush, which means she will most likely be stalled until this clears. The stall I will be keeping her in is flat cement. I was recommended to get some mats and some pellet bedding. My question is, what kind of mats do I get? Where can I find them at a reasonable price? I checked Tractor Supply, who has 4x6 mats for $42+. I am just curious if anyone has found more reasonably priced mats or have a suggestion for something a little cheaper. Her stall is 10x10 so I am going to need a few of those and I am looking at somewhere around $100 just for mats. I am trying to budget as safely as possible. I was told by another horse owner that I should just bite the bullet and do it. I will if that's what I've gotta do, then that's fine. But I figured to ask on here before I went ahead and did anything. Thanks in advance!

There are "seconds" that you can get. Its basically the same thing as the TSC mat, but they will have blemishes like scratches, a torn corner etc. Some tack shops in my area sell them for $24.99. Its the same mat...just isn't "beautifully perfect"

Ah, so I can get second-hand mats just to start me off. That is worth checking out for sure since I have a lot of things to bring home for Dixie this week. I am just trying to budget while still getting everything that she needs to be healthy and happy :)

If there are other feed stores, call around. I've seen them from $30 to $40.

Those are 1/2" foam. I doubt they would last a day under a horse.

Rubber Horse Stall Mat, 4 ft. X 6 ft. - Tractor Supply Online Store

These are 3/4 in thickness.
How many of these would I need for a 10x10 stall?

5, but you'll have to cut one and have a leftovers piece.

Holycrow. $210.
Do you think that the smaller ones would last me a short enough time to gather the $210 for the 5 heavier duty mats? :l
