    Default Wash Stall wall material?

    I am in the midst of building a barn, and the wash stall is framed in already with regular framing wood. (8 foot walls, 12' wide, dutch door at the back)
    The plan was to put FRP in as it works great for its waterproofing abilities and can withstand horses kicking, but it just gives me the pooh face :/
    Would anybody mind sharing their out-of-the-box materials for wash stalls?
    I can't use block at this point as the outside walls are already completed in tongue and groove. Speaking of, is tongue and groove ok to use if it is well protected with Spar Varnish or the like? Thanks for any insight

    I have T&G and we protected with something that I can't think of the name, but is used for boat decks or such...if SO comes by, I can ask him. Water beads and runs off so it works great. I'll add a picture. Other barns I've been in have done the wood and not protected it and it looked really ratty quickly. Also been where they did FRP and we considered it, but I'll admit I chose the wood for aesthetics.

    A couple of pictures (looks wet in one because it was post-bath):

    I used puck board. Easy to clean, no mold/mildew, and virtually indestructible!

    Thanks! I had to look up Puck board, didn't know what it was
    I talked with my builder and we actually decided to do concrete board and stucco. I'm pretty geeked! Hopefully it will withstand rowdy horses!
