Pregnant mare: Put up or Put out?

Okay all you brood mare experts, I have a good question for you all...

I have a mare who is due at the end of March. At my vet's request, she is now
stall bound. He says it is a good idea to keep them up one month before they
are due so they can "stock up" and stay off fescue, etc.. Here's my problem
though. It is a brand new 12 x 24 stall and boy is it dusty. All she does is
pace when my gelding is out in the pasture. I spray down the stall every day
to try to keep the dust down (doesn't seem to help much) and walk her every
day, but she must be soooo miserable!! Can I let her rip loose around the
pasture every once in a while? I do have a fescue pasture but there is nothing
there, really, since it is winter.

Any suggestions would be appreciated-
