While the site’s main FAQ forum and help forum can be of help on general questions, this thread can serve as a handy reference for this particular forum for new and seasoned users alike.

We’d also like to remind new users that the “search” and “advanced search” features are a great way to look for existing information on a topic you’re interested in before posting a new thread – click through via the light blue bar above.

Please remember, we can’t keep every thread on the forum due to size constraints, so if the thread you’re linking to is shorter and older, it may face the chopping block by default. If you think it’s worthy of linking to here, give me a heads up, and we can probably save it in the safe harbor of the reference forum!

We may come in and pare out commentary from this thread periodically to keep it concise.

Thanks and hope this thread is helpful!

BB Recommendations for COTHers, by COTHers

I was tooling around on google looking for something totally unrelated (namely geotextile material for stall matting) and found this awesome link

It’s bookmarked in my favorites and has plans for horse jumps, barns, shoots, and many MANY neat things around the farm. Free and useful plans all in one location, that is a keeper site for sure!

I like this site - you can browse around and go deeper than what is posted in the menu, too:

Farm layout, barn plans, paddocks, fence planning…

FBI Buildings has a really handy building design on-line tool that you can use to create your own design or adapt on already in the system. Best thing is you can save your design to go back to later on and you don’t get spam from FBI.
