I want to build a simple shelter for my horses that really does not cost the earth as I am on an incredibly limited budget for the next few months.


I have the remnants (half wall height) of an old rock pig/store barn. Small but enough to have my horses stand in. They do this already to keep their legs out of the wind to give them some protection.


I'm wanting to put posts along it on the inside or outside of this thing and then put corregated metal up to form an A shape which'll provide some decide protection when they want it.


To keep the metal up in this shape, I'm thinking I'll need an A-frame along the building? The problem I have is that I am not good at DIY except putting basic posts in (dig a hole and fill it) and A-frames can mount the cost up. I'm going to try and price up what I need and see if anyone on Yell is willing to help me for a bit of cash-in-hand.


Does anyone have any suggestions as to cheap alternatives? Just incase I can't make this option happen.



Thanks x
