    how do you choose a stall?

    When given the choice, what criteria do you use in selecting a stall?
    We are do barn setup for fair tonight and will be choosing(hopefully, lol, unless they decide to change things up and make assignments) stalls for Aero and Yahzi for the week. We have our hopes pinned on two that are close to the end most convenient to water/wash racks, the manure pile and the trailer parking plus are on the side of the barn facing the arena and situated so that the open window side is not where passerbys can mess with the horses from the outside (saw way too many kids screwing with horses on the side away from the arena last year....some meant well, some not so much....either way not something I want to deal with if I don't have to) . Plus these stalls get the least amount of hot sun.....huge bonus this.year with it set to be 100+ and humid the whole time......bleh)
    Or if you aren't lucky enough to get a choice what *would* you choose based on?

    Least amount of traffic and human interference while being decently accessible for you to reach. Good air flow, if available, is favorable too.

    We're lucky in that our club's 4-H barn is far away from the arena and most of the barns, so we rarely have traffic to upset the horses. I kept horses at Fair my first year, but in recent years I've trailered them in every day (showing 4 horses this year, too many to keep on the fairgrounds).

    The stalls I chose were close to the water tap, the chicken wire mesh was in good shape, and there were working lights in the stalls (make sure of this, I've been to a few overnight shows where my stall's lightbulb was burnt out and it sucks cleaning stalls in the dark). Our barn had no windows, so I tried to reserve stalls that were close to the door for the airflow.
