(Not complaining). California is wet, really wet. The ground is saturated. Standing water is everywhere. The sky is grey. The ground is muddy. Really muddy.
However, we also have a lot of green! Green grass.
And red. Red panels.
So, I went to work.
HORSE AND MAN is a blog in growth... if you like this, please pass it around!
Bonjour! Well, the cost depends. I have lightweight, grey panels that I use and prefer – which are not too costly. But Lowe’s had a sale on the heavier red ones, so I have more of those. If your horses are considerate of fencing, get the lighter kind. Since I am opening up an area that has grass, my horses tend to not even think about pushing on the panels since they want to eat. And, I don’t have the horses out overnight – just during the day when I can watch. But I know the paneling is used often for round pens, so I think the heavier kind is very sturdy and is often used as actual fencing. Anyway, my suggestion: if your horses respect fencing, get the lighter weight. But, if they fight over fencing or push on fencing, get the heavier kind. Once you have panels, you will think of a million uses…
I love your blog and find it very helpful. I have 5 rescue horses and 2 rescue donkeys here in Normandy, France, where there is A LOT of mud in winter! I’m always looking for new ways to manage the pastures and the horses, especially in this season. I love your red panel fencing. It’s quite expensive in France but I’m considering getting some anyway. Are the panels easy to move around and to connect to others? I’m not young and can’t manage things that are too heavy or unwieldy,
Thanks for any advice/info you can share. Keep up the good work with the bucket fund. I donate when I can.
