Yep - there is usually a waiting list for both paddocks & stalls, but a trainer is moving out so 8 stalls will open up. Cash was pastured with his own age bracket up until long yearling, never been in a varied age herd. There are nearly equal pros & cons for both paddock & stall options, so it just boils down to whether I feel $1,200 more a year is worth it for my growing boy to nibble on pasture (despite hours in a stall.) I may have to flip a coin to decide, lol.
