I made this barn for my horse loving granddaughters. I looked at lots of pictures and came up with this design. The barn is about 3 feet long and a foot wide. The doors are big enough for the 9” toy horses. If you would like to make one for your kidsm you can see how I made mine here:

Thanks everyone, I’m surprised it’s still played with after all these yrs. It’s the most popular plan on my site.

Nice barn. Being a farm kid, it passes inspection. AAA++

I made one similar to this 2 years ago for my granddaughter. I made it in 3 units. The center unit has a hayloft with a ladder, swinging doors, and removable roof (very similar to yours). Each side unit has a hole in the roof for easy access. One has a gate on the front and the other on the side. I made the corral with clips to hold them together so they won’t fall over. I also made a entry gate. I placed a small horse medallion above the door and a sign with “Naylah’s Stables” to personalize it. I made another one last Christmas for a friend of my granddaughter. Each time I make one, I get better at it and new ideas.

Hi Tim and thanks for your interest! Sorry but I barely have time to make things for my own grand kids these days, I have another pair of vanities I’m making for the next two granddaughters, before I pack up the shop and move south. But thank you for asking!
