Do you have to use concrete for run in sheds?

We are building a run in shed for my horse and my dad wants to use these things() to set the posts in, instead of setting them into the ground with concrete. Would that work? Those spikes are about 3ft long.

I've never used those, but I would expect the weak point will be where you fasten the post to the spike. With the torque strong wind will cause on that joint, I think you'll be much better off setting them in concrete so you have 2+ feet of the post in the ground.

Concrete.

We have used those inside the barn. I would not trust those used for an outside structure.

Can you set the posts without concrete?

Yes, but concrete is so cheap and easy I wouldn't do it without. Digging the holes is the hard part.

For a shed, you can set the posts in concrete one day and build the next.

The shed we're building is only 12x10ft I don't see why you need concrete for a shed that small...
