WHAT IS YOUR MANUFACTURING TIME?

The processing time frame from ordering to delivery ranges from three to six weeks depending on time of year and current demand. Please contact us for a more precise time frame.

HOW DO I MOVE MY SHELTER AT HOME?

Our shelters are heavy duty and range in weight from 2,300 lbs to upwards of 7,000 lbs. However, they are built with skids and tipped ends for easy relocation. A mid-sized or larger tractor, or a 3/4 ton pickup or larger can pull any size of shelter. A chain is hooked to the bars on the tipped ends and the shelter is simply pulled along the ground to a new place.

WHAT SIZE SHELTER SHOULD WOULD BE BEST FOR MULTIPLE HORSES?

A 10'x20' shelter is usually sufficient for three horses to get out of the weather. However, as all horse owners know, horses often have distinct pecking orders and one horse is capable of guarding one shelter for themselves. With that in mind, here are some tips for shelter ordering for horses:

1) Buy longer rather than wider. The more room there is, the harder it is for one horse to keep out the others.

2) It can be better to buy several smaller shelters rather than one long shelter. They can be spaced out around the pasture, allowing each horse a chance to seek shelter.

3) Set up a feeding area outside of the shelters. It is best if your horses do not come to associate food with shelter as horses in a pecking order can be very territorial over food.
