The more I've learned, the more my idea of the ideal horse property has changed from vast paddocks of improved pasture, to something more like a bush block on the side of a rocky mountain!

haha come to my place then!!! No perfect manicured pastures in sight :O
All fencing is really good and safe, no junk in the paddocks etc. but it's real Aussie land, not bulldozed, flattened with a spiritlievel and sewn with rich pasture mix every season ;)

To my mind, the best pastures are those with a very variated terrain, designed so that horses are bound to move over all the terrain types. Have you heard of the Paddock paradise paddocking system? It deals exactly with modelling such pastures. :)

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
