Light - No Electricity

We are building a shed/run in for our horses. There is no electricity right now to run a light to it.

Are there battery powered lights? What kind of batteries do they run off of if so?

You could do solar motion lights. I bought some cheap batter powered lights at walmart a few years ago that I stuck to my stalls. They worked ok but I generally will just drive the car down there and use headlights or carry a lantern from stall to stall.... It's poopie but you gotta do what you gotta do...

The electric fence is powered off a tractor battery. I wonder if there is a way to do that with lights.

Solar Light are the way to go. My whole place (house/well/coop/ect) is run off solar and wind power. And the propane oven... Anyway IDK if you have a harbor Freight or maybe Tractor Supply out there but they sell small solar panel kits cheap (like $40-$60) I have one on my chook coop and it keeps the lit during the fall. If you get the solar kit batteries it can run on cloudy days too or attatch a wind generator to it. Cheap, Green and effective!
