    I'd fill my barn with thoroughbreds. Off the track and green-broke. My dream barn would also allow me to keep them for about five years then re-home them as finished show horses. So I could then fill the barn with more young thoroughbreds.

    Can I put a really nice truck in one of the stalls?? And maybe a nice cowboy in another?

    I'd be happy as a clam with my little Lily and Poppy, their mommas, my old gelding that was sold, and last year's amazing colt that was sold.. I'd be so happy just to have a barn in the first place, the whole family together forever. <3

    I would fill my barn with breeds that are hard to come by for whatever reason with some proven ones as well. (only ten stalls?) I would have an open house all the time to show off these breeds. They would include some type of draft team to pull a wagon, a gaited horse for me to ride and a nice quiet gelding for my kids. For the 10 stalls, it would be a hard choice. Off the top of my head;
    A blue roan Nokota
    A black Percheron
    A bay Akhal-Teke
    A Canadian Pacer
    A Lippizaner
    A Suffolk Punch
    A Campolina
    A black Andalusian
    Any TB who can trace back to Man O War, chestnut like him
    A grey Icelandic horse

    Of course my barn would include people who can ride and work all these different breeds.
    I have never been in a really nice barn to know what to wish for. I liked the indoor track that Mr. Savage had. A wash stall with warm water would be nice. A room that has an endless supply of sawdust. Those fancy barns with all the Mahogany woodwork and brass would look great. Of course I would also have to have a worker who whistles as he is scooping poop. I really like the Kentucky paddocks with the white rail fences attached to those barns. Wow, the dreams I will have today, poor DH!

    I would have the 3 tb's that I currently own, they are all in their forever home now. Then I would buy more tb's from the track to rehab, re-school and re-home, with no rushing to do so, they could stay forever if needed.

    Seven gaited horses, all different breeds, an Irish hunter, an Andalusian and a Welsh section C. But my dream barn would not have stalls at all. It would be a *totally indoor* loafing shed with 200 sq ft of space per horse... maybe divided in two, with a box stall just in case and an area for tacking up. And a tack room of course.

    You know, even if I could and money wasn't an issue, I don't think I'd want 10 horses.

    I'd be happy with three. A mare, either ASH or QH with a good temperament and confo etc to breed, as I have always wanted to breed and raise my own foal. And then a riding horse. Probably ASH or QH. Something fast on their feet, but very calm and responsive. I quite like my current horse, she needs work but she could be my riding horse.

    My dream barn though... and my dream farm. I don't know if I'd spend more time designing the stalls or the tack/feed room, I just love organisation! Everything would be so perfect.

    And put me down for a cowboy and truck too

    I covered the pick up in my equipment shed....one question though...
    Would DH have to know about the cowboy, or could I keep him hidden
