walls promote airflow and allow the horses to see over them. The roofs are composite shingles, which are much quieter than metal in the rain. The floors are rubber mats that are spiked into the ground, so the horses avoid ingesting any sand when eating.
So this is an idea- instead of building a huge barn this carport (can get them really tall too*) and put my simple stalls in it (spray paint the wires though so it looks prettier); look into sand flooring
This double-wide barn seems to be a trend as we're building more and more of them. It's basically a shedrow barn with an enclosed overhang. This one has been downsized for minis. Go to our Barn Finder page (www. (Loafing Shed Plans)
*sigh* This is where I want to be! It just screams "Hey, come on in! Pull up a hay bale and grab a bar of saddle soap and we'll hang out and talk about horses, and laugh, and clean tack :)." (See Barn Plan
Cygnet Farm Miniature Horses is located at the foothills of the Smoky Moutains in East Tennessee. My family has a long Equine History here and we decided to stay here and start our own horse farm and equine training facility.
