Need ideas for new stalls!

I am currently in the process of building a new barn behind my house. I have it laid out for a 10x12 tack room and 5 10X12 stalls. I am through with the outside for the most part and now I am ready to begin building the stalls and tack room. I need some ideas for my stall fronts, if you have pics of how yours is set up I would be so grateful! I am just wanting to look at what others have and get a idea of what I will be going to do. I plan to start construction on the stall fronts this saturday!

One thing I don't see mentioned in your plans is feed storage - do you have storage in another building for that? (only asking because I know how easy it is to forget things like that in working on plans)

Well, when we had a barn that had stalls, we actually had the prefab type stalls.

This is the only picture I can find that even looks similar


Except ours had the stall doors side by side like this

Yeah it is easy to forget for sure when you take on a project! I am going to be storing the feed in the tackroom and they hay will be in the loft on the 2nd story of the barn.

I was considering sliding doors just not to sure how I would go about building them. They are definitely nice for sure.

If you find a quality track and slider for the doors you build, let me know please. Everything I have found to add so far is either cheapy made, or costs nearly what entire prefab stall fronts would. Maybe I am looking in the wrong places? *sigh*

I will let you know for sure! I might just make my own track just have to see how I am going to do it, I tend to be quite the handy man with metal and wood alike haha, I love building things!

Here are some sliding door tracks and such. Doesn't say the price though.

Ugh, I wish I could remember where we got our door kit. For our tack room, we built the door ourselves and put it up. I can't even remember how much the kit cost . I'm sure not much help .

Wait!! Aha, found it... It includes everything except the lumber to make the door.

The barn I used to board in had sliding doors, and at some point all of them started to get stuck and hard to move. Not sure what the problem was. I have 2 halves that can be opened independently (although my stalls open to the outside), also I have a grill between the stalls (not the wall) and love it: they can see each other and look quite happy about it.

This is what I have:
