One more thing, Karen,
Are you able to add an extension from your barn roof sloping out so that a
portion of the outside run is covered? Mine covers 12 feet and was included
in the roof design when the barn was built. However, my neighbors decided to
add it and it was impossible to do with a slope because it would have been
too low so they just reversed the slope a tiny bit and added gutters between
where the two rooflines meet to catch runnoff and it works great. The area
under the extension stays dry in the worst weather.
