So the barn owner has offered me a small piece of land that I could use for my guys. It is pretty small (just thinking about it, I'd guess about 150 feet long by maybe 30 feet wide). So they would only use it occasionally. I was thinking about the practicality of trying to set up a paddock paradise system there. Some questions.
- Is that enough space?
- What's the least effort I could put into fencing? My plan is to have them in there only when I'm around to keep an eye on them. I'm guessing I'd probably at least have to put in t-posts and some kind of tape? Or not? Anything easier I could do? How far away could I get away with putting the posts apart?
- Do these things really work? I mean, to keep them moving?
- Is it worth it for something they'd be in maybe 10-15 hours a week, max? I'm trying to get Pony's weight down a bit, and frankly Moonshine could stand to lose a few pounds also. I'm not sure that's enough time to accomplish that.
- Any other thoughts?
