Can anyone give me an idea of how big a stall I should use? The horse I'm getting is a female Perch that I plan on breeding. The stalls I have now will definitely be to small so I'm considering some remodeling.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Well I was going to do a 16 by 16 for my 15.2 hh paint mare. But now I have my 35 inch mini in a 16 x 16.
I know my mini doesn't need that much space but its nice.
I would think maybe a 20x 20 would be comfy. but it may be a bit extreme.

I have bred Percherons and if you are wanting her to foal in a stall which I believe is your question then you would definately want nothing smaller than a 20x20 stall to be safe. I always had my mares foal outside because I believe it to be safer, however, I would bring the mares and foals in after the birth and they did just fine in a 12x12 stall. I had a friend who had a belgian mare foal inside and broke the foals neck due to being against a wall. Don't mean to scare you just want to look at all angles.

my Belgian is currently in a 28 x 14 stall since we pulled down the walls between two stalls so she has a double stall birthing suite. We've foaled QHs in the same deal, but keep in mind this Belgian is also only 16 hands high if she's lucky. I won't put my girls out at night due to the tricky weather down here.
