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.
