Its just crushed limestone it looks kind of like kitty litter. When it is packed down it gets like concrete but unlike concrete it drains. I've heard it called aglime but I think the screenings are a little courser. Its much less expensive than concrete and in my opinion better on their legs and feet. Its easy to clean out stalls with a manure scoop acts kinda like scoopable kitty litter. We had an area near the water tank that was always boot sucking mud during heavy rains and now its nice and solid with the screenings. We also put it out were we have the round bale feeder so they always have a dry place.check out penn states info on stall floors http://www.das.psu.edu/user/equine/a...ephanfloor.htm
