Not being able to put a fan on a stall was surprisingly prevalent when I was looking for a new boarding facility a couple of months ago in sw ohio. My last facility was a nice place, but didn't allow fans and the circulation was poor enough that my horse was sweating constantly every day and he's in the 4th stall from the end of the aisle. There was just no cross breeze. We had a foal in the breeziest part of the barn and she was sweating in the stall, but the bo wouldn't allow a fan on that stall. There was a mare - also in the breeziest part of the barn- with a medical condition and a vet saying she had to have a fan, but the bo wouldn't do that either. When I moved, a fan on my stall was a requirement. I had to pass up on a few cheaper places to find one and I'm paying extra to have it on top of the full care cost.
