My stalls will have interior doors into the aisle and outside doors to runs. I’m having a hard time deciding how these doors should be placed.
Outside doors will be Dutch doors and inside doors are yet to be determined.
I originally thought I’d put the outside and inside doors in the center of the stalls. Then I started thinking that maybe outside doors to the far side of the stalls would provide better wind / sun protection. Outside doors will remain open bar hurricanes, medical box rest, etc. Then I got myself all worked up wondering if the door placement would impact ventilation (most important during our dreadful hot and humid FL summers). Does anyone have any opinions / experiences with placing doors that they are willing to share with me?
A Google image search gave me enough to go with for the below bit of my OP. But if you have a fave pic still free to share
Inside doors. I love a good swinging door. But! I’ll be mucking by driving my golf cart and wee dump trailer down the aisle. Sliding doors are more convenient for this type of mucking ime. No pre fastening the stall doors open and still convenient to muck if horses are occupying the stalls. I’ll probably end up building the stall fronts myself. I’m looking for examples or pictures of stall fronts that have some sort of “gossip” or “feed” door in them that either swings out or slides over. I’m not a fan of yokes or drop down doors for this particular project. If you have a picture I might could use for inspiration, I’d love it if you shared!
