My gelding is a pampered little princess. When the paddock is muddy I swear he hold everything for his stall. In one day his stall looked like it hadent been done in 5. It was HORRENDOUS. I'm at a self care facility. 180 a month and they provide hay, stall, daily turnout, feed and water. (My feed mixed in buckets). Its seriously the best deal around. But I provide shavings and clean my own stall. Most days I can get here in the mornings after he's turned outside. But sometimes its later in the evening. I have no problem buying shavings. But even with aplenty of shavings he destroyed his stall. I was looking at a bag of PDA stall Freshener.. has anybody used it?
When he kills his stall the ammonia smell is aweful and he gets a runny nose :(
I seriously don't know why he does this. All summer long he would have one pile of poo in the back wall and a circle of wet bedding in the middle where he peed.
I've heard of people using lime too.. I'm not trying to extend the life of the shavings. Just something to help absorb and neutralize the ammonia smell. I've thought about baking powder too but I'd be afraid it could cause colic if he somehow ingested some. One lady I know uses cheap Kitty litter in the pee area. What do you think?
