I don't know about everywhere but here it is only required that they have a wind break available in their pasture, i.e. a stand of trees, a solid wall...
Personally, I wouldn't want to manage without at least a shed. There are times when it's convenient to have them up. We have lean-tos along the sides of our barns with gates hung that can be closed to make a stall. 99% of the time they have free access to come and go out of the lean-to, but the other % is at feeding time, for when there's a farrier or vet appt., or when one is injured and needs to be confined.
