lol @ shovel type strainer (sorry) It's a pitchfork.

You don't have to strip the stall of all the sawdust everyday. Just pick out the poop and the wet spots. With a foal his size in a stall that size and him not being in all the time I would say take all the sawdust out and put new sawdust in at least.... twice a month. You want to thoroughly pick his stall out. Some of his poop is going to make it's way to the bottom of the sawdust.

Clean out the poop and urine spots. If you think theres not enough shavings in there then add some more. But I would clean out ALL of the shavings about every 2 weeks and replace them with new ones. You might need to do it more or less often depending on how dirty your foal gets his stall.
