Well i dont understand this. I clean out one big stale. Because i have a cement floor. When i got really cold out i start to put down more straw. Well know it is warmer and i decided it was time to clean out one large stall. Well i tell ya. It took me 3 hours by hand and my husband dumping the wagon by hand. It was about a foot or more deep and stinky. You couldnt smell any thing in the barn before. Now since i cleaned out on large stall. The barn really stinks. I dont know why. It should of smell fresher...Why is this?and know when i walk to the barn that is all i smell comeing from the pile. Is there something i can put on it to stop this. THis is one thing i cant take. I will NEVER NEVER go that deep again. after this i am changing to shavings...But the waste of hay ..Makes me so mad. It goes on the floor. Next thing you know it is being use for bedding. Does it ever pile up in no time. I love my goats. But man this takes it . Sorry i hate to let it out.
