We are having our typical rainy mud season, and the hay that the girls have scattered around outside is quite thick after the winter...and poopy too...even where there is no hay, they are constantly squelching around in this muck, and their hooves are always wet, poopy and muddy, as the condition of my barn clothes will verify. How can I alleiviate some of these conditions to prevent them getting hoof rot? Should I scatter some copper sulfate over the muddy mess? Any ideas or experience would be welcomed! Thanks in advance!
