Deep bedding with straw - a question!
I use straw and make a very deep bed. I found using MORE straw meant LESS waste.
I love straw. Easy to clean and comfortable, but MUST be used in a deep bedding matter IME.
I think in Europe they deep bed and just pick the poop on top through the winter and add straw as they go. I don't think that's feasible in my case, just because you can't get a tractor in the stalls. ;)
However, I was wondering if there could be an in-between solution; ie. pick-out the top during the weekdays, and dig for the pee spots on the week-end.
Has anyone tried this? If so, how did it work? How much time did it take you to do the job on week-ends?
I have two boarders who want to work-off part their board so I am trying to think up solutions to give them work! :)
Thanks in advance :)
