    Oh Oh Oh!! Me Me Me!!

    I keep my horses on about.. 5 acres? Not sure of the exact acreage.. but they are about 15 minutes away from my house on the Air Force Base. There is a gate that separates them from the house on that property that is padlocked unless someone is there.. so if a horse gets out, it wont get hit =)

    They each have two big grassy fields with like, one or two trees along the fence line, and they each have a 12 x 12 stall. Inside the barn there is two areas for saddles, and an area for hay storage. Its fully lit too! Lights inside the barn and stalls, and then a light that is always on outside on a pole between the two stalls.

    This is my little Blackthorn Stables <3 One day im going to buy my own property, instead of rent, and build a much better barn.

    This is Rain's field. She has the field on the left. (you can kinda see her behind the gate)

    This was the picture taken from outside the barn =) Joey's stall is on the right, and Rain's is on the left.

    And incase your wondering where Dreamer and Liberty are, they are being kept on other properties =) Im working on getting Liberty there (she will live with Rain) and Dreamer will stay at the place he is now, since he may stay a stallion =)

    Hi All, Just a quick correction of the link posted by sammi in this thread - http://www.bissellwood-equestrian.co.uk/ (the 3 dots were causing the link to not work).

    Regards,
    George.

    PS: The site is relatively new hence few pictures on the gallery, hopefully they will add some more soon.

    Wow... your guy's barn make mine look...sad lol but I still love mine.

    I board at...a 14 stall horse barn with 2 regular box ( even tho there big) one smaller box and a birthing stall. The rest are straight. There are 3 pastures, one small turn out for new horses and a winter/spring turn out( this is open all season but the horses are kept in her for winter and spring because the other feilds get very icey or muddy). And we have a out door arena and a round pen. Tack room and feed room.
    not very fancy but I love it! O yes.. we get daliy turnout, feed/watering/ hay and grain ( we have to supply owr own grain) and trails

    Well in England we keep our hay, straw and bedding in a Barn

    Horses are housed in Stables (singlehorse housed)
    or American Barn ( several stables housed under one large roof)
