I am looking at building a shelter for my mini while in the paddock, she has a tree for shade but would like somewhere dry for her to hang out when its raining. I was reading on another website where someone had suggested using a garden shed instead of building one and after looking at brand new ones it would end up costing less than buying timber. It would be one of those metal floorless ones, has anyone ever used one with success? The only issues I can think of is that it would probably heat up a bit although I would have it under a tree in the shade. Nothing for her to chew on and no sharp edges, plus it would be tall enough for me to clean standing up and be heavy enough that it wouldnt blow over in heavy wind.
