“Horse Bar” Built Into Corner Of Barn
Van Wingerden converted a corner of their horse barn into a 2-sided feeding station. It replaces the last horse stall in the barn.
  “I call it a horse bar,” he says. “We cut out two 6-ft. high openings in the metal sides, one 15 ft. long and the other 6 ft., and left the building’s corner post intact. We also installed sections of plywood to form a back wall and laid down pallets for the floor. We use a skid loader to drop net wrapped big square bales onto the floor. It’s a good way to use a corner of the building that we weren’t using anyway, because it lets the horses stay outside in the fresh air while keeping the hay dry.”
