    How deep should deep litter be allowed to get? I want to put a concrete foundation a couple inches higher than the litter will be.

    Quote:Thanks. I think she's pretty, too. She isn't mine, though. I've had several people guess, but no definitve answer on her breed. Probably a one of a kind cross.
