Help planning pasture layout
Hey guys. Me and Hubby are having some trouble deciding what we would like to do with our pasture. We own 5.9 acres although some is currently rented out to the neigbour to farm, Next year we will seed it and fence it. We have one smaller fenced area currently that was used over winter. The horses are coming home soon as we need to get things fenced for them and want to expand what we currently have. We only have two horses but would still like multiple pastures so we can rotate and I would like a sacrifice area, I want to keep the current pen as that but hubby is unsure of it all lol. Pretty much he's a non - horse person and I've owned horses most my life .. he THINKS he knows what he's doing but really I don't even get what his plan is. I told him I would try to look up some ideas and ask others for layout plans to SHOW him what would work better.
So heres where you can all get creative. Who knows, I might even go with some ones idea. I will be sure to post photos after we are all finished up too or atleast finished the first two.
So here you go. Heres what we currently have set up. The pasture is whats drawn on the map in red. Anywhere there isnt trees wont be getting fences as that is mostly yard around the house. Anything in the trees can be =)
