    How to eliminate urine smell in stalls?

    What is the best product to use for eliminating urine smell in stalls?

    Right now we are bringing my mare in nightly, preparing her for foaling. She is peeing more and more frequently, and it is HOT and MUGGY season here so naturally, the stall is starting to stink. We have rubber mats in the stall. I know there is lime available, but I am looking for something that is FOAL SAFE...is lime dust foal safe? Or what product works best for putting under the shavings and that is safe in case the foal tries to eat it?

    ugh the rotten egg smell of urine under stall mats is horrible.

    Be sure to lift the mats and check for maggots. That's another HUGE problem I've run into in the past and can seriously contribute to the odor!

    Baking soda is a huge odor killer and ammonia neutralizer and it's definitely safe to be around foals. I'd lift your mats, check for maggots, clean out under there a bit since urine will sink in through the cracks, lay down a TON of baking soda/lime under there and use baking soda daily in your stall.

    Everything TinRoses said plus at least two stall fans to keep air moving. The Amonia is going to be really harmful to your horses feet and airways too.

    Baking Soda - you can get HUGE boxes of it at Sam's Club or resturant supply places fairly cheap.

    I like Stall Dry better than Sweet PDZ but it's not bad at all. I will not use lime.

    We just use barn lime that we get in 40 lb (I think) bags from out local co-op. We've never had any issues with it and the barn/stalls don't stink. We bed the stalls well, so they really don't come into contact with the barn lime. We've never ever had any problems with any of the horses, or any of the foals we raise. And they (mares with foals) are stalled nightly.

    I've never tried Stall Dry (in fact never heard of it til above) but I do prefer Sweet Pdz to lime, and I prefer Sweet Pdz Original Powder to the granular form. I've used baking soda, too, but I like Sweet Pdz better for stalls.

    Why are you bringing the mare in? She's much better off foaling outside. It's cleaner, the air is far fresher.

    Just curious.

    I really like Sweet PDZ. I actually use it for my chicken coop http://www.sweetpdz.com/

    Spreadling lime also works (and is cheaper but more corrosive on concrete floors )
