I have my two minis, and we just got a boarder. She is a 2 year old filly. The owner does not come out, I do everything. She will leave here in a year, maybe two, for training. I am really get attached to her, but that is another story for another time.
The owner wants here stall door open during the day so she can get in and out of the paddock. At night, the owner wants her in the stall.
The shavings get so dang gross. The stall is matted, and the shavings are on top. I remember, when I was a kid, it seemed the shavings kind of clumped together when the horse peed so it was easy to pick up a chunk at a time. This is not the case now! Maybe I imagined it.
Anyway, should we do sand instead? What are the pros and cons?
