Horse Improvement Project

Hoping to make our horses a little more healthy and comfortable with the help from our friend Faith.



  • I worked for tsc for 8 years. We did a lot of things with a fork lift we weren't saposta do but this is not one of them. And just so you know if you have the room to store it you can buy your feed, bedding, mats, and even grass seed by the pallet and save money.

  • If you were to leave just the cement rubble there and not put the mat down the rocks would not just cause a abscess but will also bruise the horses hooves

  • omg. "scrapey tool" and indention? Dude, you need to familiarize yourself better with these animals. You're breeding (for some reason), you should really know what a frog and bar are on a hoof. Also...that horse needs its feet done.

  • Hey watch your... never mind . 🚜🗯 I wish you would have ask for suggestions first. 😔Your concept is spot on but your materials not so much. But it might turn out OK. You’ll have to let us know in a month or so. If you think the smooth side of the Matt goes up, Walk a crossed it in slick boots 👢 or 👟 Shoes when it’s wet, better yet , ...when it has ice on it.❗️⛸🥌🧊❄️⛈☔️. Those little rubber nodules will move around and help break up the ice when it freezes on it as the animal steps on it or you step on it. Gives some traction! Yeah it’s harder to clean but nobody said it was easy. LOL hopefully you’ll be putting down some type of bedding. If you plan to stall them any length of time. You don’t really have any drainage for PP. make sure you do an update in a few months and let us know how it’s working. Love you guys ❗️🐴🐴🦅

  • I know nothing about horses or horse mats-😂😂but I know those mats have to be upside down 🤔. Smooth side up I’m sure. Not only doesn’t look comfortable but you’ll never get clean.

  • The forklift driver was the hero in this, I think I need him on my trips to Costco. Faith is a gem also, I hope she didn't wear blisters on her hands,( should have found her leather gloves to borrow) The horses seem to appreciate the upgrade also. Next rainstorm will really tell.

  • The mats are definitely upside down. As someone else commented, think about your bathtub mat. You put the bubble side down so they don't slip and slide. And putting a layer of straw (or sawdust) on top will make them less 'slippery when wet'. You'll notice a huge difference. I know you're reading the comments and thinking "This IS a shit show"... Lol

  • Whoops on my earlier comment. Read up reason to put nub side up. Better for horse footing. Massages their feet and distributes weight. So sorry for brain freeze. Still say Jami you rock, Lester and you great example of team work. Sorry for previous comment.

  • Lester as others have already pointed out, mats are upside down. Also I would advise you to lift the mats on a very regular basis, we use them but if you don't lift them the underneath turns into a slurry type mess and absolutely stinks. Where they pee and poop it ends up under the matting.

  • Great idea Faith! I know those mats are awesome. The bigs will definitely benefit from them. Great job Lester, Jami, LE and Faith in getting that big job done. And boy was I glad the tractor didn't break the roof. Made me jump! Lol! Btw... where are all the flags? Have a great day you all! 💜 from Alberta 🇨🇦

  • You go Faith! Teach the boys a thing or two! You should do a girls vs. Boys video. Bet they win. Lester, the hoof part your trying to name is frog and it's a hoof pick. Curious, why would you not use your bucket to slam down the rock after you spread it??? I belive the nubs go down on the mates so water goes under them. I would put a board where the metal doest touch the ground so a hoof doesn't get under there. Why not gutter the barn and collect the rain would cut off the wash out areas. Maybe french drain around the outside of the building to help more. The animals would be dryer. Maybe extend your barn further out with an over hang for Dixie and donkeys to be able to stay dry. I believe the pad nubs go down so you can sweep or blow the stalls out. (Maybe hay for a lay down moment. ) Great idea Faith!!! You need to hire her!

  • When I put mats down on a dirt floor in my barn horses pawed on them to lie down and caused dirt to curl up çorners. So I wonder if pouring cement floors and then laying those nice mats down on the cement would be best.

  • Why, Lester, don't you find out how to do this simple task before you just make up stuff and go head-long into the wrong way? It always makes for more work and possibly more cost, too. You must have a solid, level and smooth base first; then the mats go with the circles down. Jeez! Just ask Faith.
