Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but if you are smelling that much ammonia, I'd check into what you are feeding. Too much protien is the main cause of that ammonia smell. I avoid feeding too much of it (unless a specific horse needs it, fo a specific reason) & I don't have that problem---even in the trailer.

Yep if you feed too much protein, the digestive system rips off the amine radical and eliminates it through the urine. That forms the ammonia. I have not ammonia smell in my trailer or my barn. As far as shaving in the trailer, I use the "large" shavings - the local tack stores has two sizes. The small are like sawdust and would blow around in the trailer. The large don't have that problem.
