Sand 100%! Never use sawdust! Sawdust can severely damage a horse's lungs! And if the horse is pregnant, It can also damage the baby before it is even born! sand is almost just as bad but at the same time not nearly as bad. If I were you, I would use alfalfa, and lots of it. A woman I used to work for would only use that in her stalls, and when we would muck them, she would have us put more in there. She would always say, "I want to be able to eat off those stall floors." That is what I suggest for you and your horse.

How do you separate sand salt and sawdust into pure states?

If all three are mixed together you can separate the sawdust from the group with a Sieve filter with holes smaller than the sawdust, but larger than the sand/salt particles. You could then use another sieve, if the sand and salt particles are significantly different in size,...OR add water to the mix....the salt will dissolve into solution leaving the sand behind. Pour off the water and let it evaporate, leaving the salt behind. Put the mixture of sand, salt and sawdust into a quantity of water: the sand will sink to the bottom, sawdust will float and salt will dissolve. Skim off (and dry) the floating sawdust. Pour off the water containing the dissolved salt. This is then heated to cause all the water to evaporate (leaving behind the salt). The remaining residue in the original container (wet sand) can now be dried off with heat.
