How big are your pastures? Not at your boarding facility, but at your private barn? Just wondering what the average size seems to be. Thanks!

At my neighbor's house, Lacey lives in a pasture that's about 3 or 2.5 acres with 2 llamas.

We have 5 acres total - includes the land the house and the barn are on. Not sure the exact size of the pastures but we have one larger back pasture, a bit smaller side pasture, and then two front small lots we use to rotate them on. We also have a dry/mud lot area to keep the horses up out of the back fields if its too wet so they don't get torn up.

I have about 40 acres of total pasture. 3 - 10 acre pastures that I rotate the main herd through & 3 stud lots that are about 3 1/2 a piece.

We currently have 5 acres and will be adding the adjacent 17 acres when the owner retires.

Live on 3 acres, have 1 acre separated into three smaller pastures that get rotated, one of which is a sacrifice lot, and the rest of the 2 acres of yard and woods is free for pasture as long as the kids and horse get along during the day xD

About two acres, but it's not very good grass. I have access to 10 or so across the road -- all I have to do is fence it. I did last year, but not this year. Will have to do it next year. My pastures are tired.
