Thankfully he doesn't have one. Only one of the Dressage mares gets that, because apparently she is more special, lol.

I had one of those. Poop in the bucket. Strip the barn and put down fresh bedding and he was guaranteed to come in and relieve himself in all sorts of ways. Poop in the hay. He had the freedom of 20 acres and still he chose to mess stuff up.

I've got 3 older mares now and they regularly walk outside the barn and go in a toilet spot. Rarely have to pick anything out of the barn. Such a relief to my aching old bones.
