DIY Small Horse Barn Tips
Thinking of having horses on your property? If you have an unusually large backyard or a small acreage, you can make it happen. All you need is a structure and fenced area in which your horse, or horses, can roam and take shelter from bad weather. Maybe there is already a structure in your yard that could use some help to transform into a one or two horse barn, or you are looking to build one from scratch. Either way, it’s entirely doable!
What Are Your Horse Barn Needs
First you must consider, what are the things you and your horses need out of your barn? Your horses need a safe, clean enclosure that will protect them from the sun, rain, wind, and potentially snow. They will of course require easy access to their feed and to fresh water. You, on the other hand, will need a structure that is compact and maintenance friendly. Ideally you will have some storage for stall cleaning tools and supplies, and the stalls or paddocks will be easy to clean and disinfect. Let’s talk about how you can construct your barn so that it is ideal for both you and your horses.
