Well, I do know that cedar is fairly acidic itself. But he used to come from a place with varied and rocky terrain... to where now everything is super soft footing, except for the trails. My farrier said she sees this a lot in our barn.
His place is not ideal. The facility is in the middle of a public park, so there are no pastures. He is taken outside everyday, though. We have some outdoor rings so I take him out for turnout to play with the other horses.
Mine only gets timothy hay, a tiny bit of beet pulp and a ration balancer. So perhaps sand wouldn't be a huge issue. He never drags his hay outside anyways. Choices choices...
