Hey there, hope this doesn't get too lengthy!
I need some help with a one stall horse barn I'm trying to design. I will be purchasing a Clydesdale cross once the barn is complete. The horse is around 15.2, 1000 lbs if that helps at all.
The layout I have now is attached. The dimensions are 16 x 20. The shell is already complete because it was being used as a shed. A long window will be above the feeding area for circulation and a dutch door leads out into the paddock. There will be lights in the tack room and common area, they just aren't included in the plan.
1. The stall I put in is 10 x 12. Do you think this size will be suitable?
2. I've added a faucet to the water area inside the stall. Is this possible? I thought it would be a neat idea if I could do it so the horse can't hook himself on the faucet. Maybe have a short one or one that pulls out from the wall?
3. Is the cross ties area suitable as in size and positioning? Can I add a window next to the door to get some natural light in the cross tie area?
Any other advice would be greatly appreciated! I feel I really need some help because I don't want to run in to problems if I didn't get someone else's opinion on it. And you can be harsh, I don't want to have a layout that doesn't work, I'm willing to totally revamp the design.
Thank you so so much!
