Peeing in it is not a problem as it acts like a "french drain" where the urine goes through down to the hard pack and out. You can also rinse it through periodically. They pee in it because it doesn't spash back at them.

Good to know. It definitely got rinsed by the rain the other day. It down-poured. He was peeing on and killing the one and only tree in his paddock...so I guess this is a good change of pace

They pee in it because there's no spash, no biggie, it runs right through. Better than standing in pee and if you want you can rinse it through periodically with a hose.

I'm getting ready to add pea gravel to my turnout. I'm so looking forward to mine peeing outside! Then maybe the inside shavings won't get wasted as much..oh and it's for there feet and to get rid of a mud problem.
