Stall Mats

Looking for suggestions on stall mats......to use or not to use? I have heard many different opinions from people, so thought I'd get more. Does anyone have any experience with the ones called stall skins?

Thanks,
Dona

We just picked up a bunch of conveyor belts from a sand/gravel company who no longer needed them. They were free, but we'll have to cut them to fit...which will take time, but that's ok.
Environmentally friendly and keeps out of the landfil....

Stall mats are great! They cut down on the amount of shavings needed which is always nice. We recently got some that we take to shows. Most of the fairgrounds have tiny 10x10 cement floors and no matter how many bags of shavings you lay the horses always seem to get down to hte bottom. Haven't tried stall skins though.

Springwolf- interesting idea with the conveyor belts! Esp since they were free!!!! Question, how thick and how heavy are they?

Ya that's what I thought!! We were told by other people that that's what they used...so when I finally saw an ad for some I got right on it!!

The conveyor belts we got are in 36 and 42" widths and are about 3/4" thick and they are various lengths, we got 4 rolls and was told that was easy over 200 feet. They are in rolls, but they are HEAVY, they have to use a big machine to load it in our truck. Easy enough for a man to roll off the truck tho...but wouldnt want to lift it that high!

I use stall mats everywhere: shed, stalls (I have a combo) and even under hay rack and around. It keeps mud off so good and they are much easier to clean too. I got mine from Southern States and Tractor Supply (they do have sales like $5/off mat).

We use Equitare. It is this revolutionary stall flooring, that is SO much better than matts! It coushins the horse's legs and feet, and it also really airats the stall so that you get less of the amonia from the urine, I would recomend it to anyone! It is highly worth the money!
