1. Pick out the large, obvious manure piles and wet spots.

2. Starting at the door, move around the stall in a circle.

3. Sort the bedding as you go. Toss what's clean enough to keep along the walls or into corners. Pile the soiled stuff in the center.

4. After making a circuit or two, depending on the stall's size and efficiency of your efforts, scoop out the soiled bedding in just a few forkfuls.

5. Pull the reserved bedding into the center of the stall.

6. Add a layer of new clean bedding if necessary.
