If this is going to be a private barn I would combine your tack and feed. Put the room in the center 12X12 slot. Across from that put the wash stall and washroom the way verona1016 did. Use the remaining 4' wide space to store your wheelbarrow and other tools.

This way you have eight stalls, every horse has a neighbor beside them and all your utilities are in the middle.

Wash, tack and feed are 8'. You could use the first 12X12 next to the feed for hay storage if you had to, or the 14X12 at the end. I would put the bath, wash and hydrant on 1 end together and feed by an outside door. Of course in my mind, the barn would connect to a giant indoor.
The barn I'm at now has a hopper on the outside w a chute to the inside for grain. The feed mill just drives up and fills the hopper and and they fill a feed cart every feeding. That's a much larger barn though.

I would want the tack room in the middle unless you had a grooming stall. But I wouldn't waste the space in my own private barn.

Ugh. Back to work I guess

Move the walk in door towards the center isle so you can have that corner for wheel barrels and such and do not waste that space.

Make the stalls 12x14 12 is way plenty to drive a truck or tractor. I have 3 horses and just to give you an idea of space. I have a 15x56 area for my hay and tractor plus some attachments and the hay is stacked 12' high. Hay takes up a lot of room and with several horses you will need lots of room.

I don't think mine is that big but the way it is laid out is that it has an aisle large enough to drive a truck through. It has 6 stalls, I think they are 12X12, three on one side, three on the other. The first two stalls on the right have dutch doors to the outside so you can enter from the aisle or from the paddock. I wish I had put four stalls on the paddock side, all with dutch doors. I have hay storage on the end to the left but that actually will be split someday when I build an extension for hay storage someday. It will then become a bathroom and a maybe a wash rack. Across from it is my feed room which is 12X12.

I actually think I may put my wash rack outside because I like that idea better....

Just things to think about... location of paddocks/riding areas/ etc...

Even a Ford F-350 is only 6'8" wide. 12' is standard highway lane width, and since you're going to be travelling much more slowly through the barn (right? ) even 10' would allow you to take a large pickup truck through with ease. I understand that some people prefer wider aisles, but it's not a requirement for getting a vehicle through

I would not have the feed and tack by a toilet or wash rack, I would have wide aisle ways , if you had to get a tractor in for any work, adding soil etc,then you need to have some room to manuever. I would have hay stored away from the stalls. I would have a larger tack shed.
You may want a larger feed room to store baled shavings , blankets take a lot of room, also are you renting out stalls ? Doing a shared tack shed ? If not shared, then I would make some smaller tack rooms toward the back.

I would look at airflow:

Feed room, stall, tack room creates that stall as a very stale hard to ventilate area

To save on building costs narrow the barn to 36' w/ a 12' isle, save a bit on building costs there too
