Vote Now in the Barn Giveaway Contest
Vote once a day April 16 - 25, 2014

LESTER PRAIRIE, MN (Apr. 16, 2014) – You can help change someone’s life forever by voting for your choice among the four finalists in the Horse&Rider and EQUUS magazine’s Nutrena® #BarnLife Contest.

Starting in November, fans shared their stories about why they deserved a new barn for a chance to win a new Lester Buildings barn valued at more than $30,000. Now, the finalists have been chosen and their entries placed online for readers to vote. But hurry, the deadline for voting is April 25th.

The entry with the most votes will be the Grand Prize winner and receive a prize package of any Nutrena® brand feed (including equine, poultry, pet, or cattle feed brands) and a new barn from Lester Buildings!
Go to and decide which finalist has your vote:

Finalist: Sharon Atwood:
Sharon Atwood’s 100-year-old barn was home to horses, dogs, chickens, peacocks, ducks and cats until it burned to the ground.

Finalist Sandy Lynch:
Sandy Lynch and her husband need a barn for all the abandoned equine friends they take in, especially the ones with thrush who need a dry place to help their hooves recover.

Finalist Sarah Merling:
A horse helped her overcome a childhood speech impediment, and now Sarah Merling needs a barn to start her own equine assisted therapy program so she can help others grow.

Finalist Heather Torbett:
After a tornado destroyed their barn, Heather Torbett and her husband were forced to sell off some of their livestock, and are using a converted carport for shelter and feed.

In addition to the #BarnLife Contest, readers were also invited to enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win weekly prizes (a free bag of Nutrena® brand feed good toward equine, poultry, pet or cattle feed brands) or one of the top-level prizes like a 1-year USRider® Membership, a Stall Fount from Classic Equine by Richie, or 1 ton of free feed from Nutrena®.
