I just like the regular ol' plastic kind like this... http://www.valleyvet.com/ct_detail.h...2-00b0d0204ae5
...for cleaning matted stalls with shavings or pellets or for dirt turnout areas. They're also great for picking the poo from the arena.
I like those big shovels (is that a grain shovel?) for loading shavings out of the shaving shed and re-filling stalls.
I don't like using the big shovels for cleaning stalls because the handles are shorter and it hurts my back bending and lifting the heavy waste like that.
I agree, if there's any sort of plant life growing where you're mucking, the fewer tines the better!!
