    My Barn Is Pretty Basic

    There is close to 35 or 40 stalls. 30 arcers of pastures. A good size indoor riding arena. A covered round pen and a huge outdoor arena. Windows in every stall. Two wash racks. And a vewing area for parents and a lounge for us kids I love it but compared to other barns I have seen it is nothing really but I LOVE it!!!

    My barn's behind the house. My horses live in the pasture behind the house.

    My barn is old, junky, filled with old mule gear, harnesses, broken plowing rigs... you name it, we have it. We have five stalls... two of them are located outside the pasture. Three are inside the pasture. One inside the pasture is filled with lumber. One outside the pasture if filled with old saddles and stuff. The other one outside the pasture is my tack room.
    The other two stalls inside the pasture are kept open for the horses to go in and out at their leisure. They normally stay out (I don't blame them). Our barn loft is in very bad shape and has hay in there from 1960 to present. We need to redo our barn this summer... it's about to fall down in some places...

    Pretty much, we just use our barn as a junk storage area... the horses sleep out in the pasture on top of the hills or in the woods. They prefer it.

    We also have a haybarn in the middle of the pasture that is usually filled with hay, an average sized tractor, a huge tractor, or a small tractor... it depends on which tractor we're using... Lol.

    We keep our horses here at the house in a 6 acre pasture. We have no shelter for our horses and have round bales brought in During the winter as we need them. Like I have said before this is a cattle ranch. We do have a barn on the property that we could use but the floor is dirt and the "critters" have dug holes ... I don't think it would be safe. Besides the ranch hands have kept chemicles in the barn for years. We are going to build a lean-to type shelter this summer I think. I feel aweful for the horses when it is crappy outside...but they always pull through...guilt gets the better of me at times tho

    Some of you have BEAUTIFUL facilities!
