Make sure the shelter will not flood The back of the shelter should face the prevailing wind Make sure the shelter is far enough away for gates and fences Ensure the shelter is large enough to allow all horses using it to stand or lay comfortably Make sure it is wide enough that a dominant, pushy horse cannot keep the other horses from entering. When determining the size of the shelter, it's best to go wider, not deeper. Again, keep the dominant horse in mind. If at all possible, design the run-in so that each horse has at least a 10' x 10' space If workable, use a portable shed so that it can be rotated to different locations Especially if it will be a permanent shed, ensure its opening is large enough to use a tractor bucket for cleaning Make sure the ceiling is no less than 8 feet high at its lowest point. If you leave the floor earth, be prepared to periodically replace dirt removed during manure removal. If the floor is made of concrete or other flooring you will need to place mats down, which will require regularly removing the mats and cleaning them. Place an eaves trough over the entrance to prevent icy patches in the opening. A horse can slip and be injured. Always make sure there are no protruding nails, screws, metal, or anything else that a horse could be cut on. Make sure the structure is built sturdy withstand heavy snow (if you live in an area that gets heavy snows), winds and a horse's kicking feet! Make sure the roof if it is a shed or lean-to style leans away from the entrance so that snow and rain runs to the outside back of the structure.
To avoid dogs shedding on the clothes, furniture in the house, you should spend some time brushing them. Brushing not only helps to remove weak hairs but are also a great cuddly gesture that helps you close-knit with your pet.
If you are not just building a shed for storage but also like to use it as extra living space then pick the shed which has proper ventilation and facility for electrical fittings. You may need to add furniture and artificial lightning for added comfort.
