I am wondering about housing for miniature horses. Right now I have one mare, and one foal. When I look at future goals 1) I might like to keep using the mare to raise foals...…… I did rebreed her this year. 2) I would like to have a driving team. ( I have trained and used, work horses before) 3) I would like to keep my own stallion...……. even though I only have one mare. I know that it is possible for each horse to provide more than one function. The mare could be part of the team, so could the stallion, or they could be individuals and have a team of geldings. Part of me could see using the stallion for agility. Anyhow, So it could be from 2-4 miniatures. From the research I can have done, I could build stalls, tie stalls, a run in shed with paddock. Stalls give more control for feeding for the different jobs or gestation. A run in shed is a lot less work, BUT I would still need one stall for weaning the foal from the brood mare. I am guessing it would depend on the temperament of the horses if they could all live together. I am wondering what I should build for stalls and paddocks or size of run in shed. I have never used a run in shed before. I might be overthinking this whole thing, but I believe that failing to plan is planning to fail.
