Fan for 10x12 stall, has anyone tried this

My paddock doesn't have any trees. The horses share a 10x12 run-in shed and seem content to share. I feel bad that it is so hot. With the temp and humidity it feels like 105 outside. I just went to hose them down and they were sweating from just standing around. I was thinking about getting one of these. Has anyone ever tried it? I will also need a solar charger because I don't have electric in the run-in, does anyone know what size charger I will need?

A lot of people use box fans in stalls, but I'm not sure why you think it's necessary for a run-in.

Sounds like a lot of work and money for a fan the horses may not even care to utilize.

I get what you're saying
You really need to ask that question of the manufacturer.
In a run in shed you're mostly going to be just moving hot air around though
A misting system might work better for them if you could figure that out

You can take a small sprinkler and attach it so would shoot sideways on outside of barn?

And does your shed have any insulation as that would help too.

Horses make me a better person.

They're tough critters. As long as they have water, they're fine.

Not sure about finding a solar charger for a box fan, but if you want to cool down your run-in shed you can do what Palomine suggested. I worked at a barn where during the summer months we put a soaker hose on the peak of the roof and let the water run down the tin roofing.Iit would cool it off inside by a few noticeable degrees and didn't require a whole lot of water.
