    For a couple of months during the summer, they are in their stalls all day and out at night because of the horse flies. The rest of the year, they have free access to the pasture during the day. We've had to start locking them up at night because one of the horses is allergic to grass. He jumps the electric fence during the night to get to the grass and has coliced.

    One horse is new but the other 2 roam around 3 stalls that are 16x16. Once the new horse is acclimated, he'll be turned loose, too.

    I have a 14x14 slant roof (3 1/2 walled) run-in with a sand floor, 2 rubber mats, and thick pine shavings during winter months, (as those 6-7 months are really harsh!) - works perfect! Every winter morning when they trot up to the gate, I can always tell which side they were laying on in there :)

    I use Stall Skins & deep easy pick shavings in all but one stall. That stall has mats because the horse in there is a pig so he only gets 1/2 a bag of shavings as that stall requires stripping after each use. Luckily he is seldom in there.

    I tried bulk shavings but after finding hunks of metal, big dagger-like pieces of wood & other odd things I gave up. I suppose mills have different standards.

    The BO where my child rides has dirt floor stalls that are heavily sanded with shavings (Bought by the truckload) on top and adds pine pellets. Those work great and make the shavings last. They are like the clumping litter. Makes clean up easy too. $5.99 for 40lbs

    Mine have sand on the floor of theirs. It's easy to clean (not so easy to keep them clean because they LOVE to roll in it) and it's cheap :)
