I have stonedust paddocks with in and outs. I usually board my horses for winter but I may keep them home this year. Does anyone put down sand or kitty litter or ice melt when it gets icy under the snow? One will be barefoot the other will have something for traction for his orthopedic shoes.

Ash from wood stove on icy areas and used shavings help

ash is good, light coat of sand is good(sand bag tubes from lowes work good, for me the shavings did not work out, they tended to insulate the ice below and prolong the ice.
