    Should of made a round pen, attached to the main yard, before getting the horse. So, soooooo annoying dealing with a hard to catch horse... :barnie

    Okay, last night, I put up some tape n posts for a rough layout. This morning, I measured it out to be 60ft, added 13 tposts, will steal some others from an area I'll be taking down anyway.
    It'll connect to a current fence and go straight out from it for one corner, but larger than a 90°,so that it can continue the curve.

    Since this is hard to see, marked up the 2nd pic.
    Dark green is straight fencing.
    Red are gates, one on right I need for sheep n such.
    Grey are posts.
    Light green is outline of circle.
    It's on a slope, but oh well.
    What will it be made of? Idk yet...Won't be permanent, so I don't want to spend a ton on it.

    Done already! Now all you have to do is catch her so you can bring her into the ring for working.

    Pen is done.
    Mutual grooming with the geldings, but she's confusing the heck outta them with her random grumpy squealing mixed in. Poor guys... 20190315_145902.jpg
    They came down as I was evenly spacing the ropes. 20190315_143543.jpg
    They had red, blue, green and yellow. Ugh. Might add the white hot tape between the top and bottom rows, just so it's more visible...
    Gate area just needs some clips for those ropes. 20190315_143707.jpg 20190315_144549.jpg
