Wood for inside of barn?

Other then rough cut lumber. (want more of a finished look)
what do you recommend for the back wall and partitions of stalls AND the outside of the tack and feed room
Also what do you recommend for wash stall.

PICTURES WOULD BE GREAT, EVEN IF THE BARN IS NOT YOURS.

Pine and plywood. I have tried using particle board and the humidity will kill it in less than 2 years. I would avoid cedar. It's also more expensive. =D

Not a fan of plywood, and definitely no particle board.

I hear a lot about southern yellow pine. Wondering if people just use the regular boards or tongue and groove.

If you really want a finished look, use tongue and groove.

I used reclaimed (it was free for me) 3/4 inch pine for back of stalls and the tack area. Looks great. But some boards in the stalls have had to be replaced over the years as the horses kicked some of the boards to smithereens.

We used rough cut pine and stained the outside of the barn. Its a more rustic look.

Here are our tongue and groove stall walls. Plywood is the outer wood, with tongue and groove "kick walls" lining it. The plywood is fancy though, and it looks nice painted on the outside.
