Barn Building, The Stall Saver

Elrod, our trusty buck, could not wait for the stall to be finished.  The loft was already providing lovely deep shade and we things were coming together quite nicely.  We were even able to use boards from our A-frame guinea coop on the front of the stalls.  With a fresh coat of paint on each board, they looked brand new!


We ordered Stall Savers for our two 12′ x 12′ stalls, put down gravel, and then prepared to install the stall mats.  Stall Savers are no ordinary stall mats.  They act more like French drains and reduce the amount of wasted bedding.




Babka, one of our does, obviously couldn’t wait to explore.  She nearly tipped over the wheelbarrow while trying to rub her back on the Stall Savers box.  She then “helped” Josh smooth out the mat.








And a demonstration of the Stall Saver in action:

  • Holly - Wow… What an awesome job – and what an amazing difference! What is the material made from? It looks pretty durable, whatever it’s made from. And you say it allows for drainage, too, which is awesome. Seems like a product that could serve many different uses. Thanks for the info and the pictures, Lacy. 🙂 Looks like you guys are workin’ hard, as always. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Simple Livin' gal - Holly, the material feels like a very thick rubbery fabric. I’m told it is made from recycled materials. I would recommend it for anyone who wants flooring for stall, wash stalls, outdoor showers, or really any area which good drainage is needed. These mats don’t get funky or anything. I’ve been terribly pleased!

  • Shelly Boekenoogen - Hello,
    I have questions about Stall Savers used for goats. Do you use bedding on the mats? Are they padded enough over gravel for the goats to lay on them without bedding? (goat bedding gets poopy since you can’t pick it out like you can for a horse). It seems as long as it was dry, it would be really great to keep clean by sweeping out the stalls every day. In a new barn, would you recommend making the floor/gravel level with a concrete aisle, or set lower to keep poop from tracking out? And in winter, are the mats enough insulation from cold by themselves, or do you need bedding for warmth? We live in western Washington where winters are not extremely cold, but it does sometimes get below freezing for short periods. Thanks for any advice about application of Stall Savers for goats or llamas.ReplyCancel
