    I like the idea of building around the run in shelter, but because of where it sits, that would be very difficult. Our land is slightly highly, so there is a very slight incline in front of the shelter- we already measure to try and build forward (so that it would be a little deeper, back when I had 3 horses) but that would require a lot of digging. We also have our paddock and pastures kind of surrounding the shelter.

    And I really don't care about having to haul hay, grain, shavings, etc., out to the shelter in the winter- I do that anyway, everyday, even though they're not stalled. We have hay storage in our garage, and the paddock/shelter/fields aren't that far from the house at all.

    Nickers2002- is that an aisle that I see in from of your stalls? Because if we were to make stalls, it would be literally dividing the shelter that we have in half- when we'd open the stall doors, they would step directly outside. Your shed looks really nice, by the way. :)

    The run in extends past the stalls :) The shed was there when we bought the house in December, but my guys are used to stalls so we had them built into the back wall. The run in shed used to house 5 draft horses so it is fairly large. Here's another picture - you can see how long it is here:

    Oh, okay so you almost have a deep overhang in front of the stalls...
