Those stalls do look great! I looked at getting some wire like that for the fronts, but couldn't get any here!



They sell them at Co-op, Peavey Mart, and generally any Ag Store, but you may not have anything like that nearby.

my stalls are native lumber and have cattle /hog panels at the top. i use either tube gates turned length wise with a chain or i have wood sliding doors built now. we are in the process of changing them over to all slidding wood doors. trust me with this but double line those walls! if you get a kicker in and they kick hard enough they can knock boards off. i like how you framed in the panel on the front of yours. i need to do that with mine. we want to add on to our barn. we need hay storage. and a wash stall!

Great topic with helpful information! We hope to build a new barn soon as well...tryin' to figure out if we should do it ourselves or not???????


I built my entire barn, with help from my dad...it was the most work I had ever done in my life. But I like being able to say i did it myself. My advice, if you don't mind really hard work, if you're on a tight budget, and if you aren't crushed for time, you may be able to DIY. It helps if you have a tractor so that you can dig the postholes and use it to set the posts and lift heavy materials. We didn't so we had to do it all by hand.

If anybody is interested in seeing more pictures of my barn, I photojournaled the whole project from start to finish. You can see them at:

we converted an old long garage and built our own stalls

i only have a few pics and not very good ones
just getting the horse in the pic not so much the stalls but here
are the pics i located
oak planks and doors on sliders with mesh opens in doors with stall guards inside doorway and barred
sections on certain stall walls were bought. we did use on one stall
those slider brackets to put/slide in wood planks or take out for use as double stall
for broods those are nice as long as you have no kickers one broke thru and had to move
him to another solid walled stall without the sliderplanks.

some of these were rescues so sorry about the not so good lookin horsey pics

This is my friend's barn, not mine (I wish!) but I will be putting in the yoked short stall gates, for doors in my barn. Please ignore the horrible pic of me. ;blush: I have another picture, with the stall door closed. I just have to find it. These run about $100 at Big Dee's.



Right now, I have corral panels in my barn because there was nothing in it when we got here. One thing I plan to do is to make the walls/partitions removable so if I want to turn 2 stalls into a foaling stall, I will be able to. It's very easy to do, by making the boards slide in & out.

Now I'll go look for another stall gate pic.

These are very easy to install or move, all you need are eye hooks to hang them.


This is Wildcard modeling the stall gate. smile.gif I would love to find him & bring him here. He was a wonderful horse with alot of heart. (STB, not Arabian, obviously)

The plywood was there because the horse in that stall used to stick his nose through the grates or something (I can't remember now).

I saw gates also and was kinda considering how this might work. The only thing is I will need ones that go to the floor so a foal doesn't roll out the bottom. I do like the idea.

It just depends on how fancy you want it.

I'm going to be using horse panels - 2 x 4 openings. Then on the front I will be using D mesh panel gates sold by preifert.

Now I don't know how that will work for yours. My horses all get alone pretty well so I can not worry about boarders and such for stalls.
