Can you use kitty litter in horse stalls?

Plain clay non-clumping kitty litter will dry the horse’s stall, but it won?t deodorize it. (Don?t use scented kitty litter, because some horses may be sensitive to it.) Baking soda is fine as a deodorizer and will also absorb some moisture.

People also ask, what is the best flooring for horse stalls?

Soil, Sand, or ClaySand is frequently used for stall floors. It is easy on the horse’s legs, non-slip, and requires minimal bedding material over top. It drains well and is replaceable once it becomes very soiled. Sand-bedded stalls may need “topping up” as sand is taken away each time the stall is mucked out.

how do I keep my horse’s stall dry? Start by removing all of the wet bedding, then dry horse stall mats thoroughly. If moisture has pooled beneath the mats, you’ll need to remove them, dry out your subfloor, then reinstall the dry stall mats. Only put bedding down on a completely dry horse stall floor.

Keeping this in consideration, can cat litter be used to absorb moisture?

The short answer is yes, cat litter will quickly absorb moisture, water and even oil, gasoline and paint. Generally speaking cat litter does a good job at soaking up any type of liquid and moisture.

Is sand good for horse stalls?

Horses in sand stalls will tend to ingest some of the sand particles and increase the risk of colic. Sand is preferred as an underlayer for other flooring materials as it provides excellent drainage. Stall floors constructed of limestone dust can be excellent if properly installed.
