Those sound really nice! Any idea how much they're going to run you? I've heard of PVC pipe corrals, since they're lightweight. It seems like just about every system I know of has just as big negatives as positives.
Panels are great, but unwieldy and potentially heavy. They're a no-go for me simply on a space taken basis with my truck and trailer set-up. Electric can be run through, ignored, or not work (shorts, battery). My guy will respect it if and only if hot and doesn't hesitate to check see if a wire is or not. Ties on a gadget or to the trailer run the risk of being broken or getting tangled, which could be a disaster in and of itself, even without other stray horses, dogs or boogey-men causing issues.
Guh! My guy will be in a stall this time (if one is open) or just tied to the trailer if not. Someone needs to make a brilliant solution and lots of money off of this! :)
