    Any suggestions for diy horse stalls that are cheap and that are less than $150 per stall.

    @Charley Ann meek that is going to depend upon some things.
    * Do you already have a barn or some other kind of structure you want to put them in?
    * How big of a stall do you want?
    * How long are you planning on keeping your horses in their stalls?
    * Temperatures of where you are?

    You should probably start another thread asking about building stalls. Please be sure to include as much information as possible.

    Assuming you have the barn and it has no partitions at all: Two pipe panels. You use the corner and then the two solid walls are for the outside of the stall and the two pipe panels set at a 90 degree angle, make the stall. They come out to be around 150 for two for a 12x12 stall.

    Check out pinterest they have everything. Anywho, I'm obviously not mechanically inclined. My husband's at the club, I'll ask him when he gets back.

    ^^^^ you make a lot more sense manes, no sleep, I'm punchy. ;)

    Also, for a dandruff/ rain rot/ (maybe lice) spray, I use with regular grooming. It has seemed to work so far.
    1 part mouth wash
    1 part water
    2 parts apple cider vinegar
    1 part fly spray

    I agree, it's always better to use natural, homemade projects! Sadly I don't own the horse I ride so I probably can't use the conditioner one...

    We used to mix it with Bronco for a really good cheap fly spray.
