Pipe Corral Covers
Hello fellow horse people! This is my first post on this forum, but after reading a lot, I am sure it won't be my last!

Anyway, I am looking for a cost efficient way of putting covers on a few pipe corrals. Buying them seems awfully expensive, and it seems that if I got the materials they would be fairly easy to make. Has anyone made them before and if you have, how did you do it? Any tips would be helpful!

Howdy and welcome to the forum :D. What kind of covers are you talking about? Are you looking for something to provide shelter for horses or something different?

Really I am looking for half covers for pipe corrals to give horses some shelter from the sun and rain. I have been looking at corrugated, galvanized panels, and figured I could probably connect them to pipes somehow, but I clearly only have a rough idea of how to do it!

Hm, I wish I could help you out but I'm not terribly mechanically inclined LOL. I do know a couple of people that tie tarps over the top of the end of their pens. If you want something metal, you might try to find a local welder or metalworker and see what they can help you figure out.
