    Default how often do you gut your stable?

    as title..
    My plan for Friday is to replace all the shavings and get rid of all the cobwebs around the ceiling.
    I might also hang a few toys to keep J amused while he's in.

    If you mean get every last bit of yuk out, them once a month.

    I get the worst put daily and top up with fresh bedding as needed, probably once a week as I do put quite a lot in when replacing bedding

    I heard cobwebs help catch flies so that's my excuse for leaving them there!

    Twice a year I will clear them out , wash and disinfect them and then paint them. Inside and out.

    All maintance is done s and when it is needed.

    Mine are only ever in during the winter so when they go out 24/7 i tend to give a real going over. So only the once for me, but mine are on thick matting and shavings, so its very clean anyway.

    Mine are only in at night for 4 months of the year. Full muckout & bed up to dry every day, about once a month very quick brush of the walls & hose the front. Once out completely gut, hose & disinfectant, then a quick hose once swallows gone & paint.

    Twice a year when i change routine from in at night to in during the day and vice versa, I lift all the mats, pressure wash, disinfect everything get rid of all cobwebs etc ..... To be honest I could do it once a year but I like to know its clean, people who know me don't call me Monica for no reason
