Okay so 2 years ago we moved to our house with my QH, we fenced in about an acre for him and then got another horse (traded him in, then got two more. Gave one back, the otehr passed away, my moms horse coliced (still have my QH) got another horse, then another for my mom(we have three horses now)) and now we have a little over an acre and a half fenced off for winter and so they don't tear up the new stuff on the other 3. We have a pole barn 56 by 64 feet, we will have 4 stalls on the far 56 foot side plus a tack/feed/storage placeand the rest will be a nice little arena to ride/let them out on cold days. We have a big door for our tractor to get in and out plus the door that will let them in an dout plus a small walk through door to get in and out of the barn for us.
I was wondering where to put old/used bedding? We are planing to make a loft above the stalls ( how hight should that be? From the stalls?) for hay and extra things. Would a dirt floor be okay for the winter? We are running out of time to get sand. I wont be ridding hard.
What types of medical supplies should we get? Vet wrap, gaze, wound care? What type of barn supplies? Horse supplies?
P.S. I have 3 boys one 13 year old QH, Retired. One 4 year old paint, in training. One 3 year old paint, getting miles on.
Thank you so much.
