we own over 250 acres my dad farms about 200 acres of that, our house/yard ish area sit on about 5 ish acres and then we have 1 large hay storage shed(approximately 40'x60') 1 small goat shed/barn (approximately 20'x30') and 1 very large brand new Barn (40'x60') with an indoor wash rack, hay storage on main floor, loft for other storage with stairs, buggy storage, 1 feed room, 1 tack room, and run in stalls, and an overhang on each side so you can lock the horses outside and they still have shelter. and then about 40 ish acres is split up between 4 large horse pastures and then 2 small goat runs

I keep Chili at a friend's barn. The barn itself is - rickity and needs some help. Her horse keeps breaking through the doors and has loosened one of the door frames. He was in a double stall - but she has since moved him where the walls are more stable and the door is more secure (different locking mechanism). He still gets out but not as easily.

Chili's stall is an average size but really dark. (no electricity in the barn). So, we are moving her to the double stall. Hubby & I are going to stabilize the door frame, fix the door and buy a new locking mechanism this weekend. We're also making the stall itself smaller - We're still so new to each other, I don't want to give her that much room to do something stupid!

The paddock/arena/pen is just shy of barrel size but has an attached SMALL paddock area for grazing. I've not yet seen either during the summer but know we'll be feeding hay because the area is not really big enough (IMO) for one horse, let alone two (and they used to have SIX there!!!!) anyway.

The fence needs to be repaired bc her horse has pushed through it as well. She had an electric fence up but for whatever reason, it's not working... I'd like to get it fixed since he's not kicking the boards down but pushing them. I think if he got a good jolt, he'd stop trying to get through the fence? IDK - just talking outloud, so plz, don't criticize! She's supposed to work on the fence this weekend. I just don't want Chili getting out!

They have additional land (about 2ac) behind the barn and I'm gonna talk to her about improving it (putting up fence) there as well - for the Spring but she said today that her horse busted down that fence too. (He's an escape artist!)

Chili has also broken through her stall door but just busted the (cheap) latch and it was only after my friend's horse got out.

anyway - that's my "barn" area.
