I keep my stalls about 2-3 inches in shavings I buy bulk. The only one who is kept deeper is my 18 y.o mustang mare, about 6 inches. Mainly because she pees like 8 million gallons a night and just because she is a old lady and deserves more shavings than the young ones. Yea, I am definitely not playing into the old lady sympathy there. I am such a sucker!
BTW, most of my horse stalls have rubber matting for cushioning. If I did not have those mats, they would all be at least 6 inches deep. The two small stalls I have that have no mat or are only partially matted are 6 inches deep or more. The one that is partially matted is thin on the stall mat, but thick where there is no mat. Micah prefers to kick all the shavings off the mat and sleep on it bare.
You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
