    Well just mindful of the dangers of it, when they are up high they are great, down low, defends the point of saving hay and just adds a hazard. They are suppose to be high enough they can't get their head in them, but low enough they don't get hay dust and pieces in their eyes.

    I informed my mom and agreed with me that it wouldnt matter if it was higher as we would only be putting 2 to 4 flakes in at a time. But we got one wall covered 4 feet up with partical board! And they got another stall up! We are hoping to finnish this weekend! I really want feed buckets to go in the corner but may just put my big round rubber ones in the corner.

    We got all walls boarded up and have to finnish the walls with another half plywood for the stalls and tack room, we got 120ish bales in there last night and I stacked them 7 high... they all go in their stalls to eat their grain and will stand pretty good in there untill I let someone out. I asked my mom if my uncle could make a hay feeder with a door where the head opening is to make it easier to feed. And she says he might be able too so the next time he comes down we are asking. Im tring to deside if I should have hooks on the doors for halters and leads but im worried that when ridding by or they they could get cought on them so im still desiding.. any thoughts? On hooks for halters/leads/flymasks. We are making the fourth stall into a feed room for storage of hay and oats we got 12 bags yeasterday of feed..
    This is what all the walls look like and this is where all the hay is..

    Re hooks for halters on stalls: You could try cargo rings (I think that is what they are called; they can be found in most hardware and building stores). As the name implies it is a ring attached to a flat metal base; the base is secured on the wall with screws and gravity causes the ring to hang down and the ring of course has not sharp edges.

    It's fun when stuff starts to come together, isn't it?

    I love it! Nails lots and lots we did part of the barn this spring and they held really good and my dads going to finnish with a nail gun. And there are boards behind that hold up theres three one on top in the middle and bottom. It took us many hours to get them up. We are stil doing 2 or 4 feet higher in the stall and tack room area.

    Will you be riding in the remainder of the building? If so that's a lot of dust those stalled horses will be breathing.

    We will be putting something down in the arena so when I ride it will go down, they are only in the stalls 20mintues tops per day and then they are outside the rest of the day.

    what would you think if there is a hook but very little sticking out?
    I talked my dad into doing the tack room tomorrow, so we will have very little left after that.
