We didn’t use sealant, which makes the surface slippery. It’s worn very well over the years. “There was an old hydrant on one side of the aisle, which we used for quite some time, but eventually replaced with an identical new one. Every square inch was covered in dirt and cobwebs. The hay loft, or “mall” as it is often called here, appeared not to have had much attention for many years. There was no lighting and little ventilation, a door at either end, a small one with a window on each side, and on the south end, a larger one, through which came deliveries—hay and straw.
This chore is best done once you have had a couple of sunny days; dry leaves are easier to blow and carry. Nowadays I use my small tractor to blow them into a large pile, which is then forked onto a tarp, and moved to the nearby woods. But for many years, we raked and raked by hand, a back-breaking job. Trees are great for shade during the hot sunny days, and not much of a problem in large turn-out areas around the perimeters, but in small paddocks the fallen leaves can cover every square inch of ground.
We take these down during the summer, since then they become just dust collectors. Electric fans now go up each summer, attached to the outside of each stall. We have two milk crates hanging on a wall angled off the aisle, in which we keep polo wraps, galloping boots, and bell boots, and Star’s donut (a soft rubber ring which fits above his nearside hind hoof, to stop him from “clipping” himself). They are always covered with a towel, to keep the dust off, and it is easy to throw into the washing machine once a week.
