Well the a rubber mat or something hard probably wouldn't be good cause itl wear his feet short I think.

Where the dirt moves instead of wearing his toes off as fast like something hard would.

I don't keep him in there.
Only goes in to feed then back out in the pasture.

I'll refil that thing soon lol

A rubber mat isn't going to wear out his shoes. If anything he is going the wear the mat. Now dirt and sand I way move unforgiving, like sand paper. Rub a shoe on a rubber mat. Two things will happen... You will be dead before the shoe wear through or the mat will wear first. Rub it on sand paper, now that's another story. It would probably be easier on legs too since the rubber is going to help absorb the shock

He would also probably have a hell of time pawing if you fed him in a pan or moved the bucket close to the floor. Just a thought.

If the bucket is any lower or on the ground he paws it and throws it around and hits it and spilled the feed everywhere. It's up higher so he doesn't get his feet in it.

The stall doesn't have very hard dirt so it doesn't hurt his feet pawing it.
Actually with it deep like that he hasn't been pawing much. Probably not comfortable to do it. Lol
