STORING YOUR HORSES-PICTURES OF YOUR STABLE

Recommended Posts

I figured this would be a neat topic. Post up pictures of how/where you store your horses. I have another post showing how I stacked some of mine. Let's see what/how and where you store yours...

i only have 3 at the moment....

and they take up residence in my 24 x 40 garage with some of the other yard stuff. if i need to get a vehicle in to work on etc. i just move them around a little. i like having the extra room and this is my getaway from the house, so no vehicles in here. i guess one day if im running out of tractor room i will think about doing a shelving storage for them, but at the moment, i dont want to 'store' them, because they all get used often and its nice to just jump on one and go.

Well I guess I can't say it is mine.............well maybe someday it will be, but this is where all of mine are stored. I don't have any recent pictures of the inside as things have been pretty hectic trying to get ready for the upcoming Meet and Greet. A lot of them are out of there now and in the garage so the necessary cleaning can be done.

This will give you somewhat of an idea of the shop area. Since these pictures have been taken we have added an old Pepsi machine, another lighted sign, some small shelves, Wheel Horse signs, Wheel Horse trinkets and collectibles. I guess you could say it is always a work in progress. Even though the shop is 30x45 and is strictly dedicated to the hobby, we could probably use some shelving for some of the tractors. :banghead: Nonetheless, we love it and spend a lot of family time out there! :thumbs2:

Sorry for all of the pictures but it truly has been a fun journey getting it to the point it is today. It still isn't perfect, but it works great for us.

Thanks guys.....I have mentioned it before, but I will say it again. I am really blessed and fortunate to have a place like this to work in year round. Dad never made a ton of money as I was growing up........they were just very, very smart with their money. I am very happy for him being able to have this shop as his retirement hobby. No A/C in the summer months but we do have a heater hanging from the ceiling for the winter months.

He is very proud of it and we never want to come across as we are bragging about it. We have had a few members bring tractors over and wrench on them in there. We are just having fun sharing in the hobby with everyone else.

super shops guys :thumbs2:

I have to agree, it's not about being rich or making a lot of money, you just need to be thrifty and set your priorities it also helps to have a good woman to help and support your dreams. :banghead:

Well my horse shelf was built several years back. It got tore down and put back up in the shed this spring. It hangs out in the back side of the shed. I had to cut it down about 6" to 8" so it would actually fit. It is right around 11' 6" across. It is sitting there with a 56 rj, early rj cart and a lawn sweeper, Wheel Horse of course. Here are a couple shots I took a few years ago. I will post some more shots of the shed when I can finally get out there. :thumbs2:

This shot is 1/2 of the dirt floor section of my barn. It's 1/2 dirt, 1/2 concrete floor. The barn is 52'x90', which gives me 52'x45' of dry/cold storage and 52'x45' of dry, and unfortunately, COLD work space.

This shot is shortly after I bought the place and had not moved yet;

The only shot I have of my "winter" work area is in the background of this picture

It is 22'x25' fully insulated and heated "garage". No storage in here just my winter retreat. I'll try and get some more current photo's of both.

So I formulated a plan and built on a Stable to my Garage that would store 15 Round Hoods :banghead:

6 under a platform 6 on top of platform, and 3 under storage shelf :banghead:

This gave me a place to not only store my herd but a place to display them. :thumbs2:

I was out in the sheds trying to figure out how to build some shelving for my horses so I thought I would get a few before pictures so this is how I am currently storing my horses. The first 2 pictures are my 26X36 very messy and overcrowded shop. This is sitting on a 40x50 concrete slab so I get seepage when it rains so I am hoping to pour a new slab for this shed and move it and put up a 2 story shop that fits the slab better.

check out the little RJ hiding between the two beasts for protection :banghead:

The next 2 pictures are of my 30x45 pole shed I am going to be making a 5x18 storage shelf that will be about 7 feet tall with storage beneath it and 2 shelves so this should take care of some of the overcrowding and give me room for more horses.

This last picture is of some of the guys waiting for a parking spot. Not pictured is a couple c series parts tractors, a B80, Lawn Ranger, Toro Groundsmaster, 60's Toro, Snapper RER, the Charger 10 that is sitting in the one car attached garage and the 604 with grader blade that is at my friends place moving gravel.

I have got a lot of work to do before the snow flies :thumbs2:

My shelf:

I can get 3 little ones up top, and 2 underneath. The easiest way to get them up there is to put them in the pickup truck first, then onto the top shelf using the same loading ramps.

      I have a small problem with my garage being a little too full of tractors every fall. This year my plan is to build a rack big enough to store 4 tractors on the floor with room for 4 more overhead. 

      If anyone on Redsquare has anything like that already in service, pictures would be greatly appreciated.

      Ok guys, now that we are all stuck indoors for the most part, an i recently sold my house and i am between houses, lets see those garages. This thread is not an i spy contest keep those comments to yourself. I want to see your garage/shop and see how you best "use" your space. I am only doing this for space efficient, cool ideas and how big is your space roughly, again NO POINTING OUT STUFF ON SHELVES!

      Well I am excited to report that progress is now moving forward with the new workshop. Some plans are still in the works, but we are under way. This is going to be located on my parents new property and it will house all of the horses. This is a huge part of my dad's retirement and I am lucky enough to share in the excitement with him. I am going to try and keep a running update on our progress. We are real pleased to be getting this started.

      When it is all said and done we will have a 30x60 pole barn with cement floor, and electric and water out to the building. The shop will be approximately 30x45 and the other 15x30 will house dad's truck. Will be deciding on a heating source in the future.

      Here is what was sitting there before............

      Old 2 car detached garage. We tossed around the idea on making this our paint booth but this building is in pretty rough shape and needs to much work to save her.



      In one day the old garage has been removed along with all of the old concrete. Added was a sound base and ground work has been started. Framing will start this week as things will move fairly rapidly. The inside is what is going to take some time. Looks much different out there in just one day!



      Will keep everyone updated on our progress...............
