Your minis are too cute and that barn setup is awesome. I just have regular old barn but the minis stall might as well be a penthouse suite as it is huge for him. Too bad he always manages to lay down in his poo anyways.

Thanks LittlemanRob, Kozmo, Me Jo, Dancer, Sammy and Hobbs say thanks too!

I am really happy with it. My hubby and I are both fairly creative, so we might have gone a little overboard with it....
Makes it so I don't worry continually about them, I know they are safe and sound, and nice and comfy no matter what the weather.

Is there a back door for cleaning or do you have to do some ducking to get in and out?

No back door.
I am only 5'4", so I don't have to bend much to go in and out.
Inside the ceiling is very tall, so even our farrier, who is 6'2", can move around comfortably.
We purposefully kept the doorways a bit lower to keep out the nasty cold winds we get here.

Smart!

By the pictures I'd say you have nasty winters like ours. Maybe some of those plastic flap affairs for the door to keep even more weather out?

We'd thought about putting those flaps in, but so far we have found them not to be necessary.
Between the angle the barn sits, the shorter doorways, and the heavy duty insulation we put in the ceiling and walls, it stays dry and cozy in there.

It is only a 30 minute drive to the Canadian border from our place, we are in the upper NW corner of Montana, so I imagine we have very similar weather.

Some times I am pushing through snow hip-high when I go out to feed.
I sure get my exercise!
Our riding horses are on the east side of our property, and the minis (and Llamas and Goat) are way over on the west side.....

So funny...how you all have to worry about the cold during winter. Down here, this is the time we let our horses run outside and pasture them for as long as possible. Come summer, it is vice versa...we are worried about protecting out little ones from the heat and humidity! You guys can relax and let your babies enjoy the weather!

Anyway...I am sure that if they are born and raised in whatever weather...they will be fine. Both my minis are Florida born and bred and when it is hot and humid, I remind myself that is all they know. Same with you guys...your horses are used to the cold and they have those thick coats so they are fne.

All our minis are lucky to have us as owners...we actually *CARE* about their comfort.

Yes they are, and isn't it sad that not all are so lucky!
I've sure come across some in not so ideal situations, and I just want to "rescue" them
.
Just have to remind ourselves that we can't save them all, and be happy with what we can do for the ones we have.

Amen to that!
