As horses are very rare in many parts of our country, it is important for us to learn about the parts of  horses. This enables us to understand more about horses.

 A stable or  stalls is a farm building or  a building on a farm. 
A livery stable is a  stable where horses and vehicles are kept for hire.
 a stall  is a compartment in a stable where a single animal is confined and fed.

The Best Hay Is Clean Hay

Without a doubt the best hay for horses is clean hay. Hay that is moldy or dusty should not be fed to horses, even when the amount of mold or dust appears to be minor. Any hay (alfalfa, timothy, clover, fescue) that contains dust or mold can inflame the respiratory tract and impair breathing ability. Many horses develop permanent lung damage after consuming moldy or dusty hay. This chronic lung damage, commonly referred to as heaves, affects the horses ability to breathe normally during exercise. In severe cases heaves impairs the horses ability to breathe normally at rest. Once a horse has been sensitized to hay dust, mold, or pollen, it may react  even when clean hay is fed. Mold can have other detrimental effects on the horse aswell, such as causing digestive upsets.

 A carriage is a wheeled vehicle for people, usually horse-drawn; litters (palanquins)
and sedan chairs are excluded, since they are wheelless vehicles. The carriage
is especially designed for private passenger use and for comfort or elegance, though
some are also used to transport goods. It may be light, smart and fast or heavy,
large and comfortable. Carriages normally have suspension using leaf springs,
elliptical springs (in the 19th century) or leather strapping. A public passenger vehicle
 would not usually be called a carriage – terms for such include stagecoach,
charabanc and omnibus. Working vehicles such as the (four-wheeled) wagon
and (two-wheeled) cart share important parts of the history of the carriage, as
 does the fast (two-wheeled) chariot.

  1. Do not bother about the language, I would like you to have a clear picture of the stable or horse barn.
