Theres a book out called the Ultimate Horse Barns. There is a barn in there that, to me, just seems to be completely genius and nearly 100% destroy proof.
The stalls almost look exactly like jail cells (not very flashy) there are 3 walls made of 8ft cement and the front of the stall facing the center isle is completely made of top to bottom iron/steel meshed bars. Theres absolutely zero wood, no place to crib, chew, and nothing to damage. I would have to be 100% times easier to clean that wood too.
Has anyone seen this? I'm sure it would be expensive to build but...in the long run, wouldnt it actually be cheeper? You would never have damaged wood, nothing would ever rot, and cement is easily filled.
When I finish college I eventually want to build a tiny little 3 stall boarding barn. Something with over sized stalls that are just above and beyond.
What do you guys think of the idea?
I'll try and get a pic of that page if I can.
