    I am wanting to build some stalls like in the picture. It’s not exactly a stall, it more like a sacrifice area. But i’m not sure how big they should be. Does anyone have some measurements?

    First time posting. Really hoping there’s someone on here who sees this and can help me. Recently with seemingly no external changes my horse has started to become very anxious in his stall when I bring him in from the field to tack him up to ride. He will not tie anymore if I do tie him he...

    I have a 2 year old filly who has been in a pasture 24/7 her whole life. I am now going to have to put her in a stall as I'm boarding away from my home. What would be a good way to get her used to the idea of a stall and stall life? She is quiet temperament and easy going, but don't want to...

    I’ve had my horse for 15 years and I’ve moved her several times before. But this time now that she is older and has had a colic episode in the last 3 years, I’m approaching this move with much more caution. I’m so excited to move her, the overall quality of facilities and stall are so much...

    I have a stall kicker who is frequently lame. I've put up padding on the wall in the past, which seems to help a little. She is also prone to hoof abscesses, so I'm wondering if hoof boots could help prevent both these issues. Has anyone tried this? I've been looking at soft-ride boots, since...

    We just got a load (about 2,000lbs including a dump trailer) of 3/4- gravel, and have some of the classic rubber stall mats for our "glorified run-in." Planning on laying down the 3/4- on top of natural footing. (non-compacted dirt), leveling it, and adding something like crusher dust on top...

    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...

    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:

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
  17. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    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...
