[Tagging] Amenity=shelter for field shelter?

Sorry, but the picture is not a stable.  It is, in the UK, a field shelter.  The other problem with mapping some of these is they are often designed to be mobile to get round planning rules.  The image is a mobile version.  There have been previous discussions on this, so you might want to search on the mail group.

I'm not sure I'd map this mobile type as it will probably/should move in the next year!

Are they not stables? Am not sure about amenity, that implies public use.
I would suggest building = stable.

Are there any arguments against using amenity=shelter + shelter_type=field_shelter for field shelters (see [1]) for horses?

>From the wiki:
The amenity=shelter tag marks all sorts of small shelters to protect against bad weather conditions.

Sounds good to me.
