How Many Horses...
 
..Are at your barn where you board, take lessons, lease, ect. I am just curious to see the different sizes of barns.

There are 25 horses at my barn. 7 of them are outside 24/7 and the other 18 have stalls.

Your turn!:D

Where I board it's quite large...10 border horses (2 are mine) and about 40 lesson/trail horses...most of which live outside 24/7.

about 60 horses including boarders.

Holy cow. How do your BO's do it?!?!:lol: Are there stable hands that help out??

We have quite a lot of amazing staff, including 2 maintenance guys...it's a huge property, and they do an amazing job. The boarders/horses are all really happy there!

Thats awesome. There are about 4 people including me who help out at my barn, with my BO. It is more work then a lot of people think, i think.

This is a good post. I have a list of all of the horses at the barn. So i will get back to you on the total of horses at the barn. All of the horses stay outside 24/7. They only come in when that horse has a lesson,or if the weather is bad,or if the horse is missing a shoe.

Hmm.... I think 25 horses if I didn't forget one.... Everyone has a stall and gets turned out during the day. There are 3 lesson ponies, a sale horse and the daughter's horse owned by the BO, and the rest are owned by boarders. We own/board two and lease/board one from the BO

We have our own barn, so six, but the potential to hold ten.
