Any awareness of horse hoof health issues concerning horse stalls on a limestone gravel base to their stalls? Mixing with urine?

I know most of the state parks here that offer Equine camping, use limestone base in there stalls...never heard anything about any hoof issues.

I am finding the same. Tried to find anything on university research centers and found little. It does appear lime or limestone has benefits for odor control.

Part of the discussion may need to include uric acid and lime, or calcium lime mixture. There is bound to be a reaction of some kind. Just cannot determine if it is harmful for long periods of hoof contact. Many have seen urine's effect on cement. What does it do if anything to horse hoofs?

If there were known problems they would be documented by now.  I have never had a problem with using Ag lime in my stalls and I'm too old to tell you how long I've been doing it.
