Stable - choose a jigsaw puzzle to solve

A stable is a building in which livestock , especially horses , are kept. It most commonly means a building that is divided into separate stalls for individual animals . There are many different types of stables in use today; the American-style barn , for instance, is a large barn with a door at each end and individual stalls inside or free- standing stables with top and bottom-opening doors. The term "stable" is also used to describe a group of animals kept by one owner, regardless of housing or location. The exterior design of a stable can vary widely, based on climate , building materials, historical period and cultural styles of architecture . A wide range of building materials can be used, including masonry (bricks or stone ), wood and steel . Stables can range widely in size, from a small building housing one or two animals to facilities at agricultural shows or race tracks that can house hundreds of animals .
