Stall question

Alright, I wanted some opinions on how often to clean a stall...I mean, I clean Addy's stall everyday (maintence wise...pick the poo out etc)...but how often do you do an overhaul and completly clean the stall out...removing all bedding etc and starting over?

When I cleaned stalls, I would pick them if need be. But if the horse totally trashed the stall, i'd strip it.
There were some horses I would have to strip the stalls once a week, other horses, I never had to (I cleaned stalls for a month).

when i use to clean stalls (my horses are out 24/7) i would clean out the poop and scrape out the pee spots and then drag the old clean bedding to the middle and put fresh bedding on the outer parts, that was done every day

Same here. Besides the poop, the pee/ammonia is really what you want get rid need to waste good bedding. Good ventilation is probably the most important thing, IMHO.
