For the height you will need to figure the angle you will need for snow to slide off . You could put osb ply wood down then some tin roofing so the snow would slide off the tin, but still have open access to the run and have the pen graded to drain away from the stall .

The rafters on my run-in were strapped then metal roofed. No OSB underneath altho it is noisy during a hard rain. The horses won't stay in then anyway, they move out into a open area to they can see all around.

P.S. I said earlier my shed was 12 ft high at the open end - I measured it today and its 11 ft. Just an fyi as you were thinking you wanted to go with a 10 ft opening.
Ok great! My dad didnt want to set the posts into the ground. He wants to use these instead;

I am using Trees that we cut down as the corner post I am treating them but can I just set them in the holes and backfill or do I need concrete? The run in is 14ft long back wall and 10 wide!

Can you get treated railroad ties. The real ones, not the garden variety. What they call switch ties, the ones for the crossings are longer. I had a load of sand set down, set the ties on that then added the framing of 24" centers. I used rough cut so they were bigger than kiln dried 2x4's. The walls are 8' high plus some extra height from the ties. The frames were lag bolted to the ties. I used proper rafters or trusses (I'm not up on the terminology) because of the snow load they have to withstand.
