Run in sheds are special structures used for horses, car port shelter, stalls and barns. They are built with locally available materials, relatively easy to construct and very useful in a homestead. Run in sheds are designed with an open front and three closed sides.
Waterloo Structures specializes in both ready to assemble and permanent run in sheds. We provide a wide range of sizes, shapes and designs depending on the preferences of the customers. The prices vary depending on the preferred materials and the size of the shed. Ideally, the run in shed for a horse should have two compartments, one that is open; this is where the horse stays. The other closed compartment is where the hay or other animal feeds are stored. The run in sheds must be roofed with strong and weather resistant materials to ensure that they can withstand extreme weather conditions ranging from scotching hot summers to snowing winters.
How to Build a Run in Shed
You must identify a location that is high and dry. Important to note is that the location should not be prone to flooding as this can cause discomfort to the horse and eventually make the shed useless during the wet seasons. The pad should be raised a few inches from the ground to avoid any form of flooding. Waterloo Structures will give you unmatched quality of run in sheds at an affordable price, indeed your dream of owning a super run in shed for your horse is a phone call away.
Maintenance of Run In Sheds
It is pretty easy to maintain a run in shed, all you need is to clean it regularly, avoid pilling up of horse droppings and keep the shed free of floods. Timber structures require periodic painting to avoid damage by termites or rotting. It is also advisable to ensure that the sheds do not harbor rodents such as rats, therefore you should have rat traps just in case they come by. Rodents are dangerous, they can damage the structure as well as the feeds for your horses.
