From the Publisher
Whether building a new barn or improving an existing one, Horse Housing
is the perfect guide. From finding the best building site to choosing stall latches, this book is chock full of how–to tips. It explains in detail which materials are good to use around horses, and how good lighting, flooring, and ventilation make a big difference to both horses and people. And it goes beyond theory—offering information, like how to estimate concrete and shingle a new roof or replace an old one. The book contains 16 plans, an extensive directory for locating services needed for barn construction, and a glossary of more than 300 terms to help demystify the building process. Richard Klimesh studied architectural design and has built and remodeled horse facilities throughout the United States. His wife Cherry Hill is the author of 24 books on horse training and care, including Horsekeeping on a Small Acreage, Stablekeeping, 101 Arena Exercises,
and The Formative Years.
