Horses get indoor exercise place

BAIROIL, Wyo. (AP) - September 22, 2010

The town of Bairoil has an 80- by 120-foot barn where people can give their horses a workout in bad weather.

The Rawlins Daily Times reports the barn has no heat and no seating, but it does have electric lights so it can be used after dark.

The Bairoil town government operates the barn. Town Clerk Barb Miles explains it this way: "We don't have a lot of protection from wind and snow from any direction."

Residents who pay a fee get an access code. They can get in 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Fees range from $35 a month for individuals to $100 a month for commercial use.
