cheap temporary barn ideas?

I have two horses. I have a barn but its at the bottom of a hill which makes the mud worse. I don't think theres anyway to help it now, and I just don't like the set up. I want to build a barn at the top of that hill but I want it to be cheap as possible and I don't want to put alot of work in it because I will be moving out of my dads within two years. I was thinking about just buying a car port, onning thing and putting plywood on the walls. I would put two stalls in it and a place for feed and tack, and I could always take it with me. I could use the old barn for hay. Is that a good idea?

There is nothing called a cheap barn, so I would just build one that would last, or just stick it out with the mud... sorry

Well I gess cheap was the wrong word... I just don't wanna put alot of work into somthing I wont be useing for long. Or I can just find a feild to board them in now then take them to a barn to board next winter. It would probley be cheaper and I will have to board for a while after I move out anyways. I could probley find a feild with a run-in for free! The BO I would board with and I are good friends so that would be cheap too. I think I just found a solution to my problem:) I just like my horses being at home with me:\

Alot of people use those car ports as shelter as long as its safe dry why not

See if you can find a used metal shelter to buy. They usually retain their value so don't expect to get one dirt cheap. But you may save a little money.

Car port would be a good option if you anchor it. You can also sell it on craigslist once you're done with it and get a lot of your money back.

Northern tool also sells portable shelters. ShelterLogic Run-In Shelter Round, 20ft.L x12ft.W x 8ft.H, Model# 51341 | Ag Shelters | Northern Tool + Equipment

Haven't you people seen how much damage a horse with an itchy bum can cause? It would be cheaper to have a load of gravel dumped by the barn than to built even a rudimentary shelter that will withstand wind and itchy horses.That barn may not suit you but when the bugs arrive they horses will want to be inside where it's dark. Especially if you hang an old canvas tarp or run over the doorway.
