Best Footing to Keep a Paddock Dry
I just got a mini horse a few weeks ago and unfortunately his outdoor stall is already very muddy with puddles. Thankfully the adjoining indoor stall has stayed completely dry, so he has a big dry area to lay down, roll, stand and eat. He spends almost all day in a separate, 1 acre big field that he shares with a few goats, so it's not like he stands in this mud for much time, but I am still very concerned about him getting thrush. I'm looking for suggestions about what kind of material (gravel, crushed rock, mulch, etc) that I could try putting down in here to help it drain and keep it from getting so muddy. Any advice would be helpful and appreciated. Thank you!
