Help with putting together new stalls (Lots of pictures)

I'm bring my horses home soon, I have about two acres for three horses I know its not the best but they will have hay 24/7 and grain twice a day, and will be worked and rode. The weather lately has been crap so I have been working on the inside of the barn and I am already inside the barn other than where I should put things. I have a shed with concrete floors and I built 3 stalls in there. I have already bought the mats to put down on the concrete floors I just have to wait for some help moving them. For about a month I will have to put the horses in their stall every night because of some health problems which is being taken care. Once their health problems are cleared by the vet they will stay out all night, weather depending. All the way around the outside walls of each stall is white indoor siding and that goes 5 foot up. Then from the 5 foot and above is painted the horses tack color. I don't have the gates put on the stalls yet because i'm waiting to put the mats down before I do that. First stall is Penny's and she is in the green stall. Penny is 7 years old and about 14.3 hands. The second stall is Krissy's and she is in the pink stall. Krissy is 7 and half years old and about 15.2hands. The third stall is Spirit's and he is in the Orange stall. Spirit is 6 years old and about 14.6hands. I'm posting 3 or 4 pictures of each stall (they are labeled on who's stall is who's) Also i'm posting pictures of the things I have that I need to decide where to put them in each stall. If you think I forgot something I may need in each stall please let me know! (i do have lots of bedding for each stall I didn't picture it because I know where it goes :) lol) Sorry for this being so long but thank you SO much for your help! (i could only add 10 pictures at once so i'm going to try to add the rest after I post this)

Hooks for water buckets?
Salt/mineral block holders?

I always put hay racks and so forth in the front of the stalls. Most neat horses poop/pee from the middle of the stall to the back of it so you want to keep hay/water/salt blocks away from there.

The only think I would be worried about is the wood strips on the back of the stall... They are begging to get chewed up and ripped off. That would probably mean sticking out nails, wounds from broken wood or ingesting splinters... You'd be amazed what some horses get hurt on!

Other then that it looks like you put a ton of love into there!

I think it looks nice. I love the color idea, nice and bright.
The only thing I can see that might be a problem is the indoor siding.
It might not not sturdy enough if you have a determined kicker, but you can always put lumber over it later, if it is not holding up.
Nice lumber, and I like the way you didn't skimp and made the walls in between the stalls double, you will be happy you did that.
I like it, I am looking forward to seeing the finished product.

I do have hooks for the water buckets I ordered them with the bucket but I don't think they can really hold a bucket of water they don't seem strong enough so that's something i'm going to have to find out. How high up do you think I should put the water buckets? Thank you for the tip of keeping the things away from the back of the stall. I sure hope my horses are neat and poop and pee in the same spot lol that's just a wish tho. Lol

They look really nice, well built and so colourful.

Good job!!

I have my haynet and salt lick to the left of the door and the water buckets on the right. As Delfina has said my pony poops/pees at the back.

Hang the hay nets just outside the stall, like they do at race tracks. Then your horses won't get a foot caught if it comes down and panic.
Post pictures after a year of wear and tear and muck. LOL

When you say wood strips on the back of the stall do you mean the grey things? The grey pieces you see going around the stall walls are PVC pipe cut in half. Or if you are taking about the white strips on the top and bottom of the white stuff that is also the siding stuff. The only wood they can get to are the solid walls in-between the stalls and the solid walls that's painted. But If there is one thing I have learned about horses its that they will find a way to destroy everything lol. Me, my boyfriend and step-dad have put a ton of love and hard work in to them I can't wait to bring them home!! :)

I love the bright colors that's my favorite thing about them. None of the horses have never tried to kick but there is ALWAYS a first for everything lol. If the indoor siding ends up not working that's probably what we will do cover it with lumber. We thought about not doubling the stall walls but it didn't look finished with out it. Thank you so much and once I get everything hung up and ready to bring the horses home I will take lots of pictures because they will never be that clean again lol.
