I love cattle panels too! Usually we use metal wire, the kind you use for electric fencing. I have to go out to the barn and sit and imagine where each thing is going. The plan is to eventually have a large barn built, that way I can have multiple areas. For now , we have to deal with what we have, and that is definitely a lack of space lolBuild a narrow cow panel chute with a cow panel gate at the end of it. You can build this at the entrance gate, narrow it down to single sheep width. Build a small pen for the young ewe so that the "gate" will touch the pen, with the "gate" to the pen opening on the opposite side to form a short chute to her pen. For the rest of the ewes, simply let them out into the pen or barn you want them in. Not knowing how your pens are configured, I hope this helps. I do love me some cow panels!
Do you use hog rings to connect them together? Haha I use hog rings, wire, hay string, my dogs have learned to pull the hay string off if they want in or out, so in some places hay string won't work. I also use the double ended rope clips and carabiner clips. All are good.
