Lets see your horse shelters or stable!

I was just curious what everyone's horse shelter looked like.
There are so many ways to build a shelter from it being very very simple-example: pipe panels and a roof made out of tarp. Simple yet effective!

Show me what your stable looks like if you board!

I will get pictures.

Our stalls:


The garage is attached to the barn

We are in the process of building a lean-to. When we're finished I'll post pics of it.

Good thread!

We just got done collecting lumber needed to build a shed thing for our horses.

I am planning on 12 x 18. 9 foot tall. It will be closed in on all sides and the front will have an opening about 3 foot wide.

There will be a feed room to the left 12 x 6 and the rest will be for the horses. So 12 x 12. Not huge but for them to get out of the weather.

I have enough lumber to make it a bit bigger but I am not sure. It is supposed to be portable since the land owner doesn't want anything permanent. If I went 12 x 24, they could have a stall each of 12 x 12.

I will have to add some pictures when we get our new one built.

Nice place SUJ!

I like your stalls and your tack room looks cozy!


I personally would do one area for your horses to get out of the weather(if they get along) because they can keep each other warm as they stand by each other :)

Oh yes they are quite enthralled with each other. Lol

Yeah that is probably the best plan. I would lose the feed area too if I did stalls.

I would def. Do one stall area then :)

When are you getting it all built?

I wish I owned my own barn/stable.
One day..one day...

We took down an old barn and got so much lumber. I don't think we are going to have to buy anything but nails.

I can also get a gate or something to put across the doorway if I need to keep them in for some reason. We are thinking about selling our mare so it would be the gelding for a while if so.

The sides and top will be metal. There were also tinted pieces we can put in for light to come through. Inside will probably be 2 x 6's about half way up. We have a ton of those.

Our barn was always a hovel. Creaking, swaying, dark, drafty. It definitely was not the most inviting place, and I always hated it. Just this past summer, dad decided to take down part of it (the part that was practically about to collapse =P) and close in a small piece of it.

I really like the new place-for once I can actually access all four corners, and be able to walk through in my sandals without getting...feces..up to my ankles. There's two stalls currently, one big run-in area for my dad's three, and he's currently in the process of building standing stalls. I really want to make the area he's building standing stalls in into a tack room, but dad's way too stubborn -.-

How do you guys keep your saddles "safe"? If I left my saddle in the barn, the mice and rats would have it eaten in a month. Our Jack Russell is a really good hunter, but she's only one dog and fails to keep the rodent population totally under control. And of course, we can't keep barn cats 'cause the dogs would chase and maybe even kill them.

Anyways, me and my friend are going to clean out the new barn in a few weeks (it's pretty bad), so I'll see if I can get pictures then. Till then, I don't think I want to show off our barnlol

We have a run down barn too. As for storing tack/grain,,, nope I store that stuff at home. Don't want the mice in any of it. Or my saddle and bridle and stuff is constantly in my truck just so I have it everytime I go out to the farm.
