Very true. I have heard horror stories from the barn down the road where a horse has bit humans - of course horses too. But people? I would of modified the barn long ago.
We have solid bottoms on the doors. Stalls walls are slatted to allow for air movement. Top half is bars on the stall walls and doors. Back walls have kick boards for protection of the wall and safety for the horse.
Huge compliment from a former boarder the other night. (has her own place now). Stopped in to say hi and she said I have always loved
the smell in this barn - shavings and clean!
