Wild horses were accustomed to living with all kinds of weather. When they needed shelter, they sought out forests with a solid canopy over them or old caves. Today’s domesticated animals aren’t too far off from their wilder cousins, but now it is up to the their owners to find a solution.
While we can’t replicate the caves or the canopied forests, Glick Woodworks builds horse shelters to last. Our loafing sheds are the nearest you’ll come to the isolated caves of yore and can be placed on your property in spots where they’ll rarely have visitors. Pastured horses use a loafing shed in the pasture to avoid making frequent treks to and from the barn. Many of the shelters and sheds have spaces for hay and provisions for water.
