Check out Paddock Paradise. People set up lighter fencing on the inside of the stronger fencing to form a track. This gets the horses moving more as they make the circle looking for small hay piles. It will also protect the middle which will enable you to turn the horses in there briefly for fresh grass.

I may have missed it - what sort of hay storage is available in the barn? Is there a loft or large open space aside from the stalls?

There is an open space in the middle currently, and then on either side hay lofts.

I'll try to attach a picture of my plans...
Okay, the blue lines are for doors, and the tack area would also have a window to the right of the door. There are also windows on the shorter sides of the barn. Oh and there is also going to be a large sliding door where the hallway ends. Each stall is 12 by 11. Could I have cross ties between the stall and the cattle area? There won't be cattle or any other animal in there unless a farmer asks.. That would probably be our last project. Also, how do you feel about dutch doors on stalls?

It turns out that someone is already interested in keeping their two horses on it for the mud season and a few weeks throughout the year for pasture/hay storage. For now she is fencing out the neighbors lot and using part of our lot and most of the barn like a run-in for now. Eventually we would like to change that, but for now, this is good!
