Looking for round pen. ASAP!

Round Pen needed desperately! I need at least 7 12 foot panels to make a paddock for a wild mustang I am applying for through Teens and Oregon Mustangs. I live about 30 miles south east of Portland, OR, but I am willing to drive to Corvallis, Eugene, Salem, or anywhere about the same distance away. Please J am literally desperate. I have not sent in the application yet, but I need this pen by like March or EARLY April. Thanks everyone in advance

You should not go and adopt a wild horse on a whim. You first need to establish a safe and adequate enclosure. A round pen is not adequate. Do you have a shelter or any plan for feeding in place?

You need to change the title of this thread. This is not an emergency. And you should post this in tack classifieds.

Don't forget that if the mustang isn't already gentled, you'll also need those panels to be at least 6' tall, which are relatively hard to find. Have you checked out your local feed/tack stores? Have you browsed your local Craigslist and classified ads?

I got mine from here
D D Gates Panels (D D Gates Panel) - Merkel, Texas (TX) | Company Profile
(here's a picture of my panels)


(with my mustang)


They are 6' tall and very heavy duty. Mine are the lightest weight they make, 10' long and weigh about 60-70 pounds each. The only bad part is, they only ship by the truck-load as far as I know.

But, how I got mine is I added my order to another guy who was wanting about half a truckload. He added my order and orders for several other folks on to it and I just paid him when they came in. You might consider doing something like that, advertising and order for others to fill a load to get them shipped to you.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

look people I already have two horses and I show in 4 h. I am ready for this. I've been preparing. I need this pen so it really is an emergency because can't apply if I font get one. The mustang will be a yearling so panels minimum need to be 5 ft BLM standards. I looked it up. And I don't need people judging me. All I want to know is where to find panels.

You don't "need" a yearling, untamed mustang. This sounds fishy and careless all over to me...

well that would have been helpful info the first time around, nobody judged you they only used what info they had available.

No an emergency is that you need the vet, or there is a disaster.

You have two whole horses? Congratulations.

Did you train those horses yourself or did you buy them trained?

And if your 4H is anything like the 4H around my area ...... being in 4H is nothing to boast bout (sadly).

Regardless, just from your couple of posts on this forum, I highly doubt that you are ready to handle a mustang.
1) You think it is an emergency to get a round pen, when you haven't even sent in your application yet, when even if you did, you don't get the horse until March.
2) This sounds like something you decided 15 minutes ago. Have you seriously thought this through and/or gotten the approval of your parents and/or have a trainer to work with?
3) I lived in Oregon for 3 years, just outside of Portland. There's plenty of farm stores to go and BUY some panels and make your own round pen. If you don't have the money to do that, then maybe you shouldn't get another horse. (Who potentially will send you to the hospital = $$$$ in hospital bills)
3) And if you don't know you can buy panels at a farm store (since you said you need to know where to find these), then again, maybe you shouldn't be buying a mustang if you don't even know where to find basic supplies. Expect to spend almost $1,000 on a round pen. Panels are not cheap. Plus you'll need hay to feed this horse. Some sort of water source or tub. Once the horse is even touchable, it'll need vet work, farrier work, dental work, etc. All those things another horse costs.

Enough said.

Unless you have more experienced training background to give us, you ARE a teenager and we have no reason to believe (at this point) that you are capable of adopting and successfully training a mustang without you getting seriously hurt, or without the mustang getting seriously hurt.

We are not judging. We are concerned for your safety. If you are going to post on a public forum, we aren't just going to pat your back and tell you "good job". We are going to speak the truth. You've got to grow some skin (and maturity) to handle the truth.
