How did I miss reporting on this?

Don't know how I've been able to miss reporting this news.

Our main aim with our extra land was to rent to people for their horses, as you will have read before we had the stables put in just this side of Christmas. Well we got our first renter a month ago but we still needed to add a field shelter to the field. So Farm Guy was on the case. He started building the thing from scratch and working on his weekends. It took him four weeks of weekends but it finally got finished.

I had thought I should have taken photos as he was going along but hadn't. However, Farm Guy was more on the ball and had been photographing as he went. So the following picture walk through are courtesy of him.

  1. Well it is a very fine looking shelter. IS the front staying open as just a place for the horses to wander in and out of??

    How has it been anchored down so as not to get blown over in the wind???

  2. yeah, the front is staying open, its just a shelter as our field has very little in the way of natural shelter.

    To stop it blowing away we have sunk fence posts in and bolted it to them.


I'd love to hear what you think! Please leave a message!
