Have you seen first hand what a horse's leg looks like after it kicked through a metal barn wall?
Yes, we get it, horses can kick through things. You know that, I know that, everyone on here probably knows that, what is your point? Where have I said anything on here where I said this horse will absolutely NOT kick through anything? I said he doesn't have a history of doing it, that doesn't mean that he won't at some point - go back and read since you've already quoted me once. I also just told you we don't want to incur expensive vet visits off the bat due to leg injuries. I've also established that we had planned on lining it with wood to prevent these things, so again, what's your point? What's next? You want to post up some pics of leg injuries? Go ahead, it's off topic at this point. The point of this thread was to get opinions on the carport as a shelter option and any recommendations people may have had (such as lining it with wood for example). If certain injuries can occur as a result of a proposed building solution, I'm interested in hearing about it (the kicking thing was relevant several posts ago, but not now). I'm not interested in having a personal debate over horse neglect or injury with you OK? You want to do that, you can email me your concerns or start your own thread.
If anyone else on here has anything constructive to say with regards to my original question(s), I'm still interested in hearing them.
