I have my buckling in a riding pen; the center of which has a nice warm straw coated house with a door and a spot for his feeder to be placed. EVERYWHERE else there is soggy mud and standing water. The weather has been so rainy and when my daughter rides she lopes her horse in his ring while he hangs out with the girls and the horses just trash his area. My question is, is this going to be an issue for him? He doesn't seem to mind...the girls would freak out, but I'm not sure what I can put down in there. It is a big area, 12 panels in a circle. When it freezes it is fine, but it is awful right now?
