Wyo. horses get indoor exercise place
BAIROIL, Wyo. -- Humans aren't the only ones who can use an indoor place to exercise during Wyoming's harsh winters.
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.
