"What influenced us" - sorry, but somehow I had to laugh about that one. We raise beef cattle, the ranch has several thausand acres, why not use the land rather than picking up horse manure in a barn? The foals learn social life and where to put their feet, the stallions are happy and content, content enough to pasture them together during he off-breeding-season. Needless to say: during breeding season each stallion has his own herd and there is more than one fence between the pastures of different mare bands.
