if you are short on funds, not the ideal way , but you could get 2 and have them centered and for the edges use the pellets and then shavings lots of them. Then add a stall mat a month you should be able to get buy with 4 mats , work on the lay out .get some graph paper and figure the sizes first. Good luck.

I really don't think so (sorry). Two problems 1) even standard heavy mats shift some over time from the horse walking around. Those 2x2 interlocking squares can't possibly stay in place for long. 2) Your horse's hooves or shoes will tear up foam. If you've seen stall mats, they are recycled tires, very heavy and almost impossible for even a horse to damage.

I agree. Probably your best choice.

I was just curious about the smaller ones for temporary use for a few days until I am able to shell out the full $210+ for the nice, thick mats :P Sorry, as you can tell I am new to this and very curious.

For a few days I think you'd be better off without any mats and just bed deeper. You'd need 6 packages of those interlocking squares to cover most of the stall, which would buy you A LOT of shavings.

You can get by with 4 of those 4x6 mats in a 10x10 stall by laying them out like the attached image.

You have to cut a 2x2 square off one of the mats to put in the center, and you'd try to position the unmatted corner somewhere where you horse wouldn't spend much time standing- maybe under a corner feeder or waterer, or just the far back corner of the stall.

Thank you for the information :)
