Picture this attractive run-in shed out in your green rolling pasture. Now sit back and realize the practicality of this particular model. With a solid kick plate around the whole interior, this is a sturdy enough building for all of your livestock needs. Interested in saving money? This particular shed was designed to be dragged from pasture to pasture when you rotate your fields. You may even opt to section off part of this shed and make it a tack room, complete with a wood floor.
Locate the shed on a site with good drainage so the horses do not stand in muck and dirty water. Avoid placing the shed in a low spot or at the bottom of a hill where water can accumulate. Place the shed so the open side is opposite the direction from prevailing winds, to provide shelter against cold arctic winds. Situate the shed out in the open, not under large trees that could be toppled by winds or ice.
Consider approaching the shed with a vehicle; place it in an easy and convenient location so feed, a farrier or a veterinarian may access the site. Footing inside the shed should be dry and cleanable. We recommend the building sit on a level compacted crushed stone base 3 – 4 inches deep. Once the building is in place, lay rubber matting on top of the stone and add a bed of wood shavings, straw, or saw dust.
