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!! :)
Yes, the siding. Sorry I re read it and realized that's what it is. It looks like wooden wall paneling, like the kind in old homes, lol. Either way I'd be worried about it breaking into sharp edges if it somehow got kicked or damaged other wise. Though I do like its washability!

I am interested to see if the half PVC pipe holds up. We have always put 2x4s up instead, the pipes look nice.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

Lol it's ok, I really like the way it looks and I really really like its washability! I will be checking everything over every morning when I let them out to make sure there isn't any breaking any where and no sharp edges. But of course it's only a matter of time tell I have to replace it

We hang water buckets slightly above tail height. Got really darn tired of horses back up to their buckets and pooping in them!

Another option you have is hang the buckets from baling twine (use two strands) around the center post in the stall and then you can adjust it up and down until you find the perfect height for each horse.

If your horse is the nervous nellie, gotta be looking out the front of their stall at all times, hang the water bucket on the very front of the stall. Found those horses will drink 30-50% more water than if it's hanging on the side of their stall.

I am so worried about my horse's chewing on the wood because I have read so many people having trouble with that. Even tho my horses have never chewed on wood I would rather be safe then sorry. At first I didn't like the PVC pipe idea but after we got it up it does look pretty nice. I will let you know how the hold up once my horses come home

Slightly above tail height, got it thank you! Also I kind of like the idea of hanging it outside the stall so they can have more room in the stall

If you have the nets, then don't bother with the metal feeders. Personally I don't use the feeders. Horses naturally eat with their heads down, so I don't like feeding them above my stomach/rib height. I recently started using a slow feed net & I really like it. So mug less waste than the metal feeder, or my larger net hay bag.

I have these, and they work great Bucket Hanger - Horse.com

However, I use the same style bucket as you pictured & they tip towards the wall. So next time I need to buy hangers, I plan to get these Fortiflex Wall Bracket - Horse.com there are a few kinds, but I'm posting from my phone & too lazy to look. Lol. They have a you shaped bottom that holds the bucket lip from tipping towards the wall. I've tried just mounting a strip of wood, but it doesn't work too well.
