Wow Super Nova, love your set up! I hope you don't mind, I saved your pictures for future reference. We're moving to a new place and I need ideas on parceling up the pasture for the rotation etc. Any more pictures of it? How to you avoid mud around your barn areas? It looks like you have some gravel in the shot of the horse eating under the fence.

All my paddocks are all weather gravel.......the only mushy area is just out side their stalls but that is only while it is raining within 12 hours of the rain stopping all puddles have dried up.

I did post a picture of the entire gravel paddocks that are attached to the barn.....maybe you missed that one?

I will see if I can find and over all picture........or see if I can post a google map so you can see our place from the air.

Lets see if this works

This is an old map.....we have added more interior fencing for grass paddocks and we now have a couple of additional buildings.....but it will give you a good idea.

I couldn't quite tell what was on the ground of your paddocks on my computer. My monitor must be fuzzy. That's a very good use of space. We have so many trees on our place, the grass isn't going to grow as nice as yours... And they make it a bit hard to split things up. The trees are nice for shade though! We get some nasty hot summers here.

I suppose they are fine if you have a small place. We have 80 acres on the home-place and 160 acres leased. Most of our electric fences cross/fence large pastures so they can be grazed more efficiently. We have creeks, trees, brush, lots of deer and even have feral hogs to deal with. We have frequent wind storms and infrequent tornados and big storms. We also have frequent power outages. So, they are constant maintenance problems.

I can see that small farms with paddocks away from trees and wild game would be easy compared to fences here. In western Oklahoma and Texas it is not unusual for ranchers to have 1200 acres or bigger winter wheat pastures in one field with nothing but electric fences to keep the cattle in. Again, they have to be driven and checked daily because deer or drunk drivers are bad to take them out.
