What would be in your dream barn?

You've been given an unlimited budget, and a 10 stall barn (imagine for some reason you can stable stallions there too) What would you put in the stalls? Any specific bloodlines? Any genders? Any colors? Any personality quirks? Just what would you have? Just thinkin this could be a fun little thing

A pair of black shire mares with white socks and a blaze
One buckskin QH mare with strong cutting bloodlines
One palomino QH mare with great reining bloodlines
One red roan QH mare with amazing cow sense
One buckskin QH stallion with proven cow sense
Two overo paint mare - NON FRAME
One tobanio paint stallion proven in western dressage, and reining
One rescue horse who would probably be euthanized due to medical issues they can't afford to fix, or no one wanted or was lame or just one rescue horse

I'd photocopy my horse and have him in each and every stall/paddock/yard.. And if that was impossible then a waterproof cut out..

Hmmmm.....can't get past the "dream barn" part to think what I'd put in it! I would most definitely have my two in it, but the rest, well, that would take some good deal of thought. Guess that's what I'll be dreaming about tonight!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

I only want one thing

A Black Clydesdale stallion, with lots of roaning, and great build.

A dun QH stud with cowhorse breeding and great roping training with a show record.
A Grulla QH mare with cowhorse breeding. She'd be a brood, competitive trail, and rodeo horse.
A blood bay Paint stud with rabicano markings with both racing and halter bloodlines. He'd probably be used for trail, rodeo, reining, and halter shows.
A sooty buckskin mare with heavy barrel horse breeding. She'd be used as a rodeo and trail horse, possibly being bred every few years.
A flaxen chestnut Clydesdale/Paint gelding with unknown breeding. He'd be used as a trail and lesson horse (an all arounder).
A blood bay QH/Halflinger stud (an ungelded Toby) that stood at 14.2hh that would be used as a lesson horse and taken to rodeos, fairs, and barrel/gaming shows to bring me in some paybacks and ribbons.
A black Percheron mare and stud team with strong working bloodlines. They'd be used for plowing, driving, and logging, along with the occasional trail ride.
A non-gaited Morgan mare that would be used as a gaming/fun show horse for a lease.
And last, a double registered APHA/AQHA Grullo QH stud that I would use (competitively) as a rodeo, reining, ranch, WP, and competitive trail horse.

And just saying..I actually have my whole dream ranch planned out (literally, with plans lol). 3 barns, a run in shed, 3 arenas, 2 houses, trails, pastures, fields, etc. :p

Like walkamile, I'm still on the barn part....
Filling it would be no problem for me, that is... after I have it built. Or perhaps I could wiggle my nose and have it magically appear in place of my current barn.

Of course, magic would also put in a Friesian stallion too. Grand Prix Dressage trained..... to go with my grand prix butt.
Wait.... magically small grand prix butt.
