The horsey cuisinart at the barn leaves on Friday... Thank God!
I use a plastic grain shovel to scrape up the wet stuff and to shovel out the worst of what a manure fork won't pick up. It's basically a "good enough" job for a few days, then completely strip and start over again. Thankfully her owner never complained, she is quite aware of her piggy horse and actually complimented me on getting it cleaner than she used to.
