Ag-lime footing effect on hooves
I just moved my horse into a barn with a wonderful indoor arena. The barn owner recently had the footing stripped, leveled, scraped and then he used a yellow-colored, powder-like sandy footing. I was told it was called "ag-lime". I had never before seen footing with such a light yellow color.
Here's my question: Are there any known respiratory (both horse and human) health risks associated with riding in an indoor arena with this type of footing? Is this substance something I would need to rinse off my horse's hooves and/or legs after riding in there?
It's very non-toxic, and you could even eat it as an antacid... great for odor control as well... won't hurt your horses' hooves in the slightest.
ag -agricultural lime. Ground limestone rock and nothing more. They make calcium supplements with it. Think riding on a package of unflavored tums.
