  1. Barn Maintenance
    Hey guys I’m new to this forum! So I’m finally getting my own stalls built at my house next week! I’m super stoked! I’m trying to find the best way to maintain my stalls! I’ll only have 1 horse for now but either way I want to have the best and least maintenance and budget mindful possible...
  2. Barn Maintenance
    My horse is in a mare motel with a run. He has shredded all his stall mats and the vet thinks he is sleep deprived because he is refusing to sleep on the hard ground which is resulting in him falling and cutting his front fetlocks. I am purchasing new stall mats and shavings for the covered...

    Those nasty horse flies really bother my beauty. Are there any home remedies or any natural ways to prevent them, and yes, she is not in a stall. Always out. Thanks in advance:gallop:
  4. Horse Boarding
    So i just bought a sweet 14'2 gelding. The stable he was raised in all the horses lived outdoors on acres of pastures. He has been kept in a stall but not for longer than a few days at a time. The area i live in sucks. All the barns (except for two that charge 2-300 more {board is already $900...
  5. New to Horses
    Okay, I'm note exactly new to owning horses but I've never kept my mare in a self-care stall before. I had her, briefly, in a partial ( which ended up costing more than full care or pasture so we moved her back to pasture ) and I haven't done anything with stalls sense ( almost 3 years ago. )...
  6. Barn Maintenance
    I would like a recommendation for stall mats for race horses. I checked the Tractor Store and the have Rubber Mat, Black, 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. but I did a search on here and the old posts (2011) said an inch thick is desirable. Someplace in FL that sells would be ideal.
  7. Horse Talk
    So today we just brought home my 9 year old paint mare. (We used to be boarding her) She seemed to be settling in very well when I turned her out this morning but when I put her in her stall she started pacing frantically and pawing at the door. It's been about 2+ hours and she still has not...
  8. Barn Maintenance
    Hi there, I am on the verge of purchasing some horse stall mats and I am looking to get a bit of insight. I just moved to a horse property that has three very odd-shaped stalls, so I am having to order custom mats. I have gotten multiple quotes, with the most economically friendly from Linear...
  9. Horse Health
    Hello, I have a 12 y/o QH. He very much prefers being outdoors 24/7. The weather in NY is very muddy and mushy, and he has the beginnings of thrush in all 4 frogs. So, I need to stall him at night to give his feet a chance to dry out and feel better. BUT HE HATES IT, my god, he kicks and kicks...
  10. Barn Maintenance
    Hola all! My best friend and I want to have our own farm one day, and whilst trying to make a sort of barn plan I've run into a huge problem... Sizes confuse me. I'm lost when it comes down to trying to figure out sizes. Currently, we have stalls sizes at, Typical horses - 12x14 Drafts - 16x16...
  11. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    My mare lives in a large open stall at home and she is able to see everything that is going on and can see her neighbors all around her but when we take her to shows she is in a closed-in box stall and tends to lose her mind. She calms right down when we take her out in to the aisle and is calm...
  12. Horse Boarding
    I always get into this debate with other horse people. My current barn has the horses outside 24/7 with free access to hay and water and they are put on grassy fields in intervals. Growing up, I always went to barns that had the horses stalled at least at night if not during the day as well...
  13. Horse Pictures
    Okay so my photos are noob photos taken on an iPhone but I have so much love for this big boy & our lesson was so fun yesterday that I had to share :-) Not that many care but here's the story; I've been riding a veeery slow gelding for the past 3 weeks due to wanting to improve my seat, so this...
  14. Horse Boarding
    I have been looking at a few horses for a while, and as I am honing in on making my final decision for my new family addition, I need to find a good boarding situation! I am located on the North Shore of MA, and actually have been in contact with various barns in my area, but sadly they are...
  15. Horse Talk
    I had no idea what category this would go in so I hope its okay here. Anyway, I moved my gelding from a barn about a month ago where he was turned out during the day and stalled at night. He kept his stall neat, had a poop corner established and everything, he liked to lay down on the shavings...
  16. Horse Training
    Apollo is really starting to drive me friggin NUTS! He absolutely REFUSES to eat his grain if I am not there in the barn sometimes. I have to be right by his stall watching him or else he paces in his stall, sticks his head over the door, and makes faces, wanting to go outside. He is wasting his...
  17. Horse Health
    Hey, I just started leasing my horse over the summer so I've only had him for about 8 months. At home, we have rubber mats on our stalls so naturally, I had no idea about his hole-digging problem. However, at our first away-from-home competition they did not have rubber mats in the stalls and...

  20. Barn Maintenance
    Looking for other people's thoughts about these "mattresses" for future reference in a barn project. Has anyone used them? Good outcome? Bad outcome? Any ideas on how much they cost per stall? I intent to contact a dealer for more information as my project progresses, however for the moment I am...
