The earliest known horse-like animal was the Eohippus, a tiny, dog-sized animal.
Only 20cm tall, they were forest dwelling and would have made excellent pets.
A slightly larger version of the Eohippus, a fossil of a pregnant Eurohippus was found in 2015.
Like something between a cat, a dog and a kangaroo, this strange looking species was much larger than those mentioned above.
The Hagerman Horse
A powerful, Zebra-like animal, this mammal resembles the modern day horse very closely.
Extremely similar to the modern horse, the Dinohippus was native to North America. It is possible to detect the majesty and grace of the horse we know today.
What’s the Difference Between an Aussie and an American Barn?
What’s the difference?
Although both barns are made of three different segments, the centre segment of the American-style barn is raised, while the Australian-style barn is not.
American Style Barns
This style of barn has a raised centre, creating the space inside seem more open. The exterior looks more complex and interesting than an Australian style barn.
Australian style barns have a single roofline. They tend to look more simple and modest than an American-style barn. They are also often smaller, but can be built at any size.

Planning A Warehouse
Building a warehouse is a large investment and its worth spending the time to get right.
Below, we take a look at the major points you need to focus on as you plan and construct your warehouse.
Building Permits & Zoning.
This is something to get on top of early. If you have a location in mind, you need to ensure that the council will allow you to build there, and you need to know what kind of limitations they might set on your warehouse building.
A good shed builder will have an in-house expert who can guide you through the building permit process. They will take care of the details and you can focus on ensuring you get the structure you need.
Find Out How Much Space You Need.
If you’re building a warehouse, you probably already have an operation of some kind. Measure out the space that this operation takes up. This is the absolute minimum space your warehouse needs to cover but, given that you’re probably a growing operation, you’re going to need to calculate how much more space you might need.
An investment in your company’s infrastructure of this size should suit yours needs for 5 – 10 years (after which you may need to consider further expansion). Write down a growth plan the details your productivity increase year by year, then calculate how many extra machines etc. this will require. You can then start to estimate how much space you’ll need in 5 or 6 years times.
Consider Storage Space.
If you hold stock, this is another thing to consider. If you’re planning on allocating storage space; what will go in there and how much space will it take up? These things need to be considered when developing the plans for a warehouse.
Access and vehicles.
The design of your warehouse needs to allow vehicles to access your building and there needs to be spaces allocated for loading, unloading, deliveries and packing.
Find Opportunities for Improvement.
You’re taking them time to take a big step forward with your business. This is also the time to think about how you can get ahead. If there are efficiencies or new techniques that you can incorporate into the design of your warehouse, this can be a great way to increase your competitive edge.
