Horse Corral Shelters are an Innovative Shade Solution for Horses and Livestock
Providing reliable horse and livestock shelter wherever animals need it is a major dilemma for farmers and ranchers. ShelterLogic developed this innovative livestock shelter to help livestock owners meet this most important animal safety challenge. The multipurpose corral shelter acts as a portable canopy and conveniently attaches to most existing corral panels to keep farm animals protected from the sun and heat.
How Corral Shelters are Built
Like a run-in shed, a corral shelter gives horses and other farm animals protection from the elements and can be set up wherever they need shade. With its arched canopy, the corral shelter provides animals plenty of headroom when they seek shelter from the elements. The corral shelter has a frame made of sturdy steel and a fabric cover that securely fits most panel tubes to provide reliable shade protection anywhere in the field. They feature patented ShelterLock Steel Stabilizers and anchor securely to the ground for reliable shade. These shelters come in 10 x 10 ft. and 12 x 12 ft. sizes, and a variety of frame strengths and cover weights to fit your budget and climate needs.
Many Ways to Use a Corral Shelter
Farmers and ranchers can use their existing corral panels to set up a livestock shelter anywhere on their property. Its primary use is to give farm animals a place to escape the elements and take a water and hay break. But there are other ways you can use a ShelterLogic corral shelter. You can purchase a corral shelter enclosure kit and create an outdoor storage space wherever you need it. A livestock shelter is a great place to park frequently used ride-on mowers and farm equipment. When attached to corral gates or fencing, the corral shelter’s arched canopy may feature open-air sides. You can conveniently use your corral shelter as a livestock shelter to store hay, corn, and anything else you feed your livestock.
