    Wow I don't know how anyone has the time to go to other threads, it's hard enough to keep up with this one. Let alone remember what everyone posted.
    WTG TJ that's a lot of work, I will always love the smell of horses. Please don't leave we have to know how things progress.
    I had a fantastic trail ride last night, haven't been on one for a couple of weeks. Took BO's 13 year old son and we had so much fun. Lots of cantering and he is so great to ride with and talk to. Hunter was really really good, only tried to turn around a couple of times, but once we got into the trails he was happy as a clam.

    NM71, thought I would remind you of your responsibility as a owner of a new horse that you have to post updates daily for the first two weeks..It's mandatory so you need to make sure this is taken care to stay in good standing with your peers.:-}

    we have 17! But only 7 have horses right now.. may be getting a new boarder with 3 soon

I think I can see spouting but not sure so I assume the water is being taken from the roof to the end of the bulding. I would run a ring drain along the front of the gates to pick up that water and slope the turnout area to the front for some run off. If the water has no where to go it will build up. Love the barn though great job.

    I had to ring drain one of my homes crap of a job had to go down two yards in places to get the water away from the bottom story then run it down the section to the lowest point. Next door were not impressed, but got the water away.
    The BO told me yesterday "Don't worry "red" I will have it all fixed .." the drainage problem was caused by the Elderly "cowboy" Scraping the turn outs and pretty much digging a hole.
    So the BO will scrape today and add some sand . I "hope" it works.
    Steve "the BO" means well but he is a City guy and just don't know much about the barn.
    Yea he calls me Red. It kinda bugs me but I don't have to deal with him often so I am ok with it..
    OH and the Sand is getting Dumped in the arena YAY

Ofcourse that calls for digging trenches to lay pipe(clear your filthy minds) how ever far it takes to the area that will keep it from coming back to the barn.

    By looking at the neighboring turn outs it appears the drainage is ok in them, but makes me wonder if the one that has standing water is at the lowest level and all the others are draining into it.
    other than the one with the pony in it there is no horses in the ones near the "one " that is terrible it is mainly the end of her turn out. Where Sparky dug to deep

    That's great news!

    The back of our barn looks very similar except we didn't put runs in, it was in the plans at first but then we decided not to because we ran out of level ground. We had some trouble at first with water seeping into the stalls because it was running down hill. My husband built up a mound ( I think he called it a burm?) to divert the water around the barn and installed some drainage pipes.
