The Stable

The Stable was built in 1996, using timber from the property and a portable sawmill. The siding is 1x10 cut lumber. Like the Gazebo, the eight roof components were put in place to support each other, requiring no inside supports.  The hayloft is designed to hold up to 3000 bales of hay. The current requirement is for about 150 bales per horse for the winter.

The tack room is in the hayloft, adjacent to the balcony. The stable and pasture is designed to support six horses, with additional pasture property across the road, currently being used for cattle.

The Stable is equiped with electricity and water, with the water coming from the spring in the pasture, via the reservoir between the spring and the stable. There are two water troughs in the pasture, fed from the overflow of the reservoir (fed by the spring).
