Type of stall which is provided?
 
So on this adoption application I have to send in, asks me this question:

"The type of corral or stall which will be provided is:" and I'll be keeping him in a stall, but I'm not exactly sure what to put, and I don't want to call and email the owner again because I'm sure she's tired of my questions haha. But I just want this application to be right!

So unless it's the simplest question and I sound dumb, what would you guys put? The stall that Jasper will be kept in has like a wire-ish or metal top on the front of the stall, and it doesn't slide open it opens like a door. Would I just put something like that but in simple terms? :?

Commercial made stall front & sides with mesh wire (or metal bars??) (??), and add the size,..., 12x12 or whatever.
IDK???:wink:
Maybe attach a photo??

Do you know the dimensions of the stall? What about the area in which he'll have turnout - do you know the approximate size/area, fencing type, etc of the turnout? This is all information you will want.
They want to be sure that the facilities are appropriate - they are looking for size/safety of all areas in which he will be to be certain that it is appropriate for him.
The stall, for example would be -- x by x foot stall, ..... walls (solid or partial), swinging door. The turnout description would be a x by x or xxx acre turnout, fenced with xxxx fencing (electric, mesh/field, barbed - certainly hope not, smooth, etc).
Anything you are not sure of, though, contact the facility you'll be keeping him at.

Well I'm getting the dimensions of the stall from someone I'm friends with who boards there. I don't know what's taking her so long to get back to me though :\ Also - I definitely don't think it's barbed wire, the last time I was there was like a little over a month ago so I'll have to ask or just run over and look again myself. It could possibly be mesh wire, but I just wasn't sure what to put in terms of like what kind of stall it was. But thanks for your answers! :)

I am sure they will not mind you calling and asking what they want specifically. They probably would rather you ask than not ask if you are not sure.

I would guess that they simply want size and a general description - 12'x12' box stall, wood construction with mesh at top.

jfisher256 08-23-2011 01:43 PM

Alwaysbehind - yeah they just want a general description of the stall: one line to put what type of stall it is and just the size. That's all they want really. Then they just want the address of the barn which is totally understandable because like themacpack said, they just want what is best for him. And if they don't like it for any reason, I have back-up barns that I can go to.
