Wow, I would post a pic of my barn...but after seeing yours, I am ashamed.
Your barn is BEAUTIFUL...fun and functional!!
We bought our house with a 3 stall barn right next to the house. The stalls are matted, have fans and also a misting system. Each stall opens up to a generous paddock.
On the other side of the house is a 1/4 acre "pasture". Basically, I turn the minis out into the pasture during the day, and keep them in the paddocks/stalls at night. Unless it is really hot....then I leave them in the paddocks with the fans on so they can cool off if they want.
I just want my DH to cut down the stall doors so they can peek their heads out. We can see the barn from the family room...i want to see their little faces peering out! Right now, i occasionally see a little nose poking over the door, but that's it.
I can't believe how much I adore these little dudes. Just talking about them now makes me want to get some carrots and go visit with them.
