Your dream farm/barn:
Since the boyfriend has a barn on his families property, I've been able to see some things about barns that totally don't work.
#1. There is a barn with two stalls, a large corral, a small paddock all connected. Inside the barn to the other direction there is a tack room and some empty space that could be converted to another stall, or used as hay storage. Problem is, that with five acres, why keep your horse/animal in the corral area? Let them have free roam! Then, you have to keep hay in the tack room. And comeon, horse people have too much tack to be sharing it with hay!!
My dream barn/farm has cover for my horses, but also a lot of space where my horse can be a horse! It has easy access to tack etc, and space to tack up that is close to the tack room! I would like an arena, and lots of area to explore, even if the exploring area is off the property!
I would like it to be cute and pretty, but my horses health/well being comes first! I of course would like some enclosed space where I can keep my horse should they be hurt, etc and need to be on stall rest for whatever reason.
As long as my barn doesn't fall down on my horsies like this one is about to!
I think red barns are just beautiful
I wouldn't complain if this was my barn
Anyways, obviously my horses well being is first off! Clean spaces, lots of space, well ventilated, etc.
