Need advice for my draft horse

Hey all, I signed up and posted some pictures of my clydesdale a few months ago. -

I'm having problems with keep her stall dry and clean. I actually have her in a 24x24 pen that she messes up pretty badly due to the amount that she urinates. I'm scooping multiple times a day and adding dry stall (and every other kind of 40# bag soaker stuff I can find). Anyone ever have a similar experience or solution?

Your advice is appreciated.

Hey, I've never had this kind of a problem, but I'd say, if possible get her outside sometimes, so she isn't in a stall all the time. But even that may not help. I know a horse that can be outside all day long but will not urinate until it gets back in its stall. Strange but true

So is she kept inside or outside?

I'm not sure. The only thing I know is that when I mare is in heat or going to be, she urinates a lot more often, at least my mare did, other than that I'm not sure what to tell you. I'd say put as much bedding in there as you can, and try clean it morning, afternoon and night.

The obvious thing to do would be to turn her out except for nights or yucky days. I can't think of anything to be honest to really soak it up except for what is already mentioned.

Her stall is outside. It has half shade though. It does seem like she's in heat al l the time, though, 'cause she urinates so much. I was thinking about putting sand in the back end of her stall, away from the feeder.
