Forgot to add: Because of the way fire/smoke spreads even a loft is safer than storing hay *beside* your horse.

Hmm, now there IS a good point! Keeping hay in a loft will also keep it dry from flooding, come to think of it. Now we is coming to a consensis So, maybe keep your hay in a loft above the stall and tackroom, with a built in ladder in the crosstie area? But if you were to do this, trust me from experiance, I HEAVILY reccommend you put a big window and a pulley system up on the top floor, on the side of the barn where the hay is. This is so that you can pull your truck w/ hay next to it, and send the pulley up and down to get the hay going around. ;) Lifting/throwing hay up onto that second story gets *exhasting* after about 40 bales ...

Hay elevators are nice, even if its not that high, they can be adjusted and just throw them on and let the elevator do the work, then you just have to stack them...
