Sibley Park Horse Barn, built for the City of Mankato, Minn., fits into the city’s “storybook farm” site which also houses a petting zoo. This building is home to miniature horses, as well as an occasional llama and other zoo animals. The City of Mankato chose to release this to bid as a post-frame building to lower the overall cost, while providing the necessary design flexibility to incorporate the “storybook farm” design into the project.
