@ ****ed Evans - I REALLY like that style of barn! Haven't seen one like it before, but it's nice! Definitely something that could work for if you wanted to live above your horses.
The barn was made by a person with no experience in barns, he's an architect though so he wanted something nice and quite practical. That's why the barn is a different style. The owners don't live on site, just the barn hands but you could certainly live there. It's a nice place. The best part is the heated water, heated rooms above and shower.
Well, I just moved a month ago so here is my new (to me) barn and tack shed! We are thinking of closing in the barn and making 4 inclosed stalls with runs instead of just 2 big ones.
The tack shed:
Saddle tree. Can you see the kitten?
And the back of the tackshed, we have 2 other pairs of run just like these, one with a normal horse shed and one that still needs a shelter.
All the run are connected by this alley, one side connected to the arena that goes to the left pasture, and the other to a run that goes to the right pasture.
Okay, more of an update!!! I don't know if I ever told you guyss the horses were on the pasture, but they were just taken off after about a month. They ate it down relly well and didn't muck it up too bad. We mowed it, especially the buttercups and ferns, and the pasture really looks much better!!! We are also adding in supports for the barn and roof this weekend.
Dang you all. You're making me want to move pronto so I can set up my own barn the way I want it! Right now my horses are at my parents but within a year we will hopefully have enough land to move them!
I really want to create a run in set up with a tack and hay room. I prefer to leave my horses turned out 24/7 with an option to lock them in during extreme weather. A lot of great setups here to consider! My imagination is running wild
