My dad and I are going to build a barn soon. Nothing big or fancy, we don't have enough money for that. Just a little two stall barn with a tack room and a covered aisle on the outside. One side will be open to the east( that's where no/little wind comes from here). The stalls will be 12x12, and the tack room will be small, 6x12. There will be either one or two sets of cross ties, haven't decided yet. But about anything will be better than what I've got now. What we have now is just a stock barn with one 10x10 stall built into it. It was on the property when my parents bought it, and it wasn't built right. Let's just say drainage is a pain. So, I'll be glad when we get it built. We want to finish it before, or shortly after, Christmas.
Also, we have fifteen panels. One of which is being used as a gate to a field at the moment, so fourteen. Five ten foot panels, and nine twelve foot panels. I am going to use the five 10' panels and make a small pen as an isolation pen or maybe putting one of my hard to catch mares in it. And the nine 12' panels, I am going to set up a small (about 35') round pen to warm up in. I don't ride in pens much.
Now, that was long, but I wanted to share. :) Anyone have any tips/pointers on things we can do to improve it? What little 'it' is. Lol
