Horse Stall Help

I need to build a stall in my pole barn. Any advice as to what kind of boards to use? Seems like pressure treated pine tongue & groove 2x6 would be good, but I don't know much about horses. Any opinions out there??

You will probably need to buy (or make if you/ a friend can weld) a metal thing. I am looking around for them too.

Do u tie a horse up in its stall over night? or let it walk around in its stall?

Rebar or chain link fence.Have seen both used, and no cribbing problem. Lasts too.Suggestion coming to you from the land of good whiskey, fast horses and beautiful women!

In the barn on our old place I used regular 2x12's. No neccesary to use treated indoors, and besides it cracks more easily as it dries. Leave about 1/8 inch between boards to allow for expansion.

Tom, do not use pressure treated for the stall. horses will chew on the wood and pressure treated is poison. Use oak for strength and it won't hurt the horse if he chews a little.

If you put some used motor oil or rub some grease on the top boards it will stop a horse from cribbing(chewing) when it's in the stall.
