1.  Description

The Rhovanion is a clearing that has been dedicated to livestock and horses. The Rhovanion was once a section of farmland that connected to the City Square, and is surrounded by a stone wall that acts as a barrier against the elements and the harsh wind that can sometimes roll in off the sea. At founding, New Caledonia had no proper stable to protect the animals, so members allowed their companion animals to wander at their own risk. The Rhovanion has ample grazing and room for the animals to roam safely, though some patches of fence lay in disrepair.

Amidst the early 2019 winter season, Merlin Knight, aided by Thyri Dawnbringer, Teagan Stryder, Makoto Ridley, and Genkei Stryder, cut down trees to craft lean-tos for the pack's accumulated horses to act as temporary shelters. These lean-tos can help cut the wind and keep off most of the rain and snow, however, they are far inferior in protection from the elements than an actual building or proper stable.

In June 2020 Toraberā Tanaka and Kadir Ahearne proposed the start of an official Stable Project, and so by August the Rhovanion will be outfitted with a proper Stable for its animals.

The completed stable will be largely made of timber, with flooring made of mixed clay and other soils to be easy on the horses' legs (with scavenged bedding such as moss and straw). It will consist of ten stalls -- two of which will be slightly larger to allow for mares with foals to rest comfortably. Ample aisle space will allow more animals to be taken into the barn in case of an emergency.

Communal horses that require it (e.g., stallions, sick animals) will have priority on stall space, at least until expansions (such as nearby stable blocks) are made -- as horses should roam and graze most of the time! Proper corrals, improvements to the pre-existing lean-tos, and smaller sheds erected for animals like sheep will ensure that our livestock stay safe and cozy.

2.  Rules/Procedures
