    I have treated plywood for the floor of my little barn. (I'm in a flood plain so the floor of the barn is 3ft above ground level). I needed something to scrape the goat berries up and my shovel has a round tip. I took a 6ft long x3inch wide scrap of 3/4in plywood and screwed a 6inchx24inch scrap to one end. Voila a scraper! LOL Cleaned the stall in no time flat.

    I actually have a floor scraper from home depot we used to scrape up stick on tiles in our house when we moved in. I use it for cleaning up the goat shed and chicken shed :cool: works like a charm!

    I use the metal snow shovel.. :) But your idea is a good one, you probably don't have an excess of snow shovels in Tx like we have here!

    So the urine does not rot the wood?

    I had a area in my barn that all the water from outside would drain to, and it was horrible, so I took pallets and laid them all over the ground and I used plywood on top of the pallets so they do not get their legs stuck and break a leg. I took the stuff out because I did a better drainage system in and wow the wood stunk and was rotten.
