Molly’s Stall is Coming Along!

Before any work on Molly’s stall could be done, we had to move some of the 170+ square bales of hay that basically constituted the whole area. We decided to build a seperate shed beside the barn, to fit about 100 of those bales. That was the summer’s project; now that it is getting colder, the weather will probably soon make a second stall mandatory… so that is the new project. My dad has been very busy working on it for the last few days, and it’s looking great!

Here is a full view of Molly's stall, or what can be seen of it as I stand on the wall seperating Destiny's stall from the aisleway (trust me, it's not the first time I've been on it...practicing German is much more fun when you can read it to your horse!)

In the barn, there is an aisle from the front door to the back. The horses’ stalls on each side of the aisle—Destiny on the left, and Molly’s stall is now on the right. A half-wall seperates each stall from the aisle. Molly’s stall also must have a door that enters into the far right portion of the barn, where the hay is kept (seen in the photos).

It doesn’t have a stall door yet. Floor mats and a place to put the cord for the heated water bucket are needed too. But it’s looking great! I can’t wait to see how it looks when it’s finished!

(We’re also working on a name plate for the stall. We don’t know how permanent this set-up is yet, with this particular horse, so we aren’t looking to get anything too expensive; but surely we can carve her name onto a piece of wood, right? We’ll find out…)
