Building Your Own Stalls/Stall Doors, Help!
At the moment we only have one large stall, but I would love to some day like to make that one stall into three 10 by 12 stalls. I'm not entirely sure how I might do this, as the setup isn't entirely right. If I would set them up as illustrated, I would either have to have the door into stall 1 only be accessible from outside, or have to go through stall 2. Or, would it be best to make both stalls a little bigger so they are split in the middle of the gate that already exists, and will have two smaller gaits that lead into both of these stalls?
Also, I would love to see some stalls and stall doors that people built themselves. Most of our barn has been a cost effective project that gets done when we get the supplies to do so. It is a long project, but has made leaps and bounds, and is fabulous considering we haven't put tons of extra money into it. Anyone have ideas or pictures or both would be fabulous! I'm not interested in pouring thousands of dollars into perfect stalls, I just need stalls that are safe, sturdy, and there when I need them. All of my horses, aside from a mare and foal, are out on pasture with a shed that keeps them plenty protected. I would really love to have a couple stalls to throw horses in when I take them out of pasture and work with them, rather than having to trek back and fourth to get horses, or tie them in our already smallish arena. (Plus for special feeding and prepping for shows it would be nice.)
