    Thank you for your reply.
    So it is holding up well and you had no unpleasantness during the purchase or installation? The gable front is a good idea. Mine will be where the horses could get in so I...

    I think the 9' side walls will work fine. We use big square bales that my hay supplier stacks for me with a skid loader. 9' will let me go 3 high with a few inches left. Will also be taller away...

    Thank you, I had seen that thread previously and am hoping someone who has one can tell me from what company it was purchased and if it was a satisfactory experience for them. I am looking at the...

    We are planning to do something different with our hay storage next year and I am thinking that one of these structures may fill the bill. Need something about 22wx36Lx9h. We use big squares and...

    We have a 14" stock with a center gate, Holds 3 comfortably but I usually am hauling 2 max. If I were to replace it I would get a stock combo with tack/dressing area in the front but still have the...

    I do like the 18' deep. it is south-facing but still gets blow-in that goes more than half way back with bad storms. The back 6' or so is always dry. I can't post pictures but if you want to send...

    Hi,
    We built an 18'Dx36'L run in several years ago. Currently use 1/2 as hay storage and 1/2 as run in or lay-up stall if needed. The guy that built it said we could easily build a mirror-image and...

    It is not really all that bad. My hay feeder is plastic so pretty light and easy to move around. I have had it for about 5 years now and it has stood up very well. The horses also don't move it...

    I tried this last year around my bale feeder--this year I am going to do it right. Last year I put down some 3/8 base, leveled it sort of and put down mats. Eventually the base and mats started to...

    We have done it twice. Once an emergency and once "planned."
    They were both clean and quick. I prefer this method to the lethal drugs when done correctly. I don't know that I could do it myself...
