[RC] Size of Shelter Needed - Aaron Turnage

We have recently moved and I am finally going to be
able to keep my horse at home! While we still have to
prepare the area, I am looking into purchasing a
shelter for my horse and his feed, seperately of
course. I do know this: I want a metal shelter, not
wood, it needs to withstand high winds, looking for
something simple (inexpensive), like a three-sided
loafing shed he can come and go. I do not need nor
have room for a full barn. I was thinking of getting
another similar shed for the hay. Tack, etc will
remain in my trailer, its just easier that way and
what Ive been used to from boarding. But what I need
to know is about how much room do I need to plan on
for hay storage? Im looking to order about 2-ton soon,
the grass hay is about 23 bales to a ton per the
grower. These are the larger west-coast rectangular
bales. About how much sq. footage will I need??
