Eve troughs

Eavestroughs (Roof Gutters) In Horse Barns

Rain falls and when it does on any roof, all of it rolls down to the edge and accumulates in a volume equal to the area of the roof.  There is that math again.  But you can see this and can appreciate it when all of this water is diverted away from the barn.  This prevents a mud trough along the outside wall, wet spots inside the barn and even barn damage.  All barns should have eve troughs with an associated drain pipe that carries the water away from the structure.
