The Basic Run-In Shed is a strong aesthetically pleasing shelter designed for livestock, but versatile enough for just about anything. The practicality of this particular model lies within the versatility, permanence, and price point. This basic version of the Run-In Shed is the perfect horse and livestock shelter or work bay. Locate the shed on a site with good drainage so the horses do not stand in muck and dirty water. Avoid placing the horse run in shelter 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 horse sheds for sale sit on a level compacted crushed stone bed. 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. Consider upgrading to a Standard Run-In Shed if you’d like more mobility, structural integrity, or a kickplate.
