I have been watching Marestare lately and have noticed alot of people foaling there horses out on shavings???? I thought that was discouraged. What are your views? I foaled my mare out on straw and will keep her on it for a few weeks. I want to use it up, then I will switch to sawdust (I love how it smells) I find straw alot more time consuming to clean but I love watching my colt fast asleep in it he looks so cozy!
