And not ice, either, I'm sure...we get that every 3-4 years or so. I wonder if you could brush the snow off or something? But ice and hail, that would be a different story. I still think the actual frame would hold up, and the canvas would just have to be replaced.

I'd think you'd do fine with a 3 sided lean-to type structure. I would be skeptical of the long term value in the hut thingie.

I wouldnt use that car thing. I would think it would blow over. And if a horse did scratch on the side of it.. who knows what would happen! I don't think they are made for horses what so ever? I would just build a 3 sided lean-to.

Lori, I just reread your OP and if your dad is willing to build a simple shelter, I would sooner go with that then the car shelter thing if you get any kind of snow/ice or strong winds. If he keeps it simple and buys wood direct from the sawmill, slabs even (the edge of the logs) you could save a lot of money.

My problem is that I don't have time to build anything. For this year, I decided not to do anything, but I have that luxury as my girls will still have their barn, just not the extra paddock except on the days that I am home to keep an eye on them.
