We put this together three years ago, and it should become even more popular with my horses now that they are confined to a smaller area. I'm taking down as much of the fence as possible to move it to Alabama. I tried leaving our only track tree (real tree) in their reduced Paddock Paradise, but Stella started peeling the bark off of it. I had to fence off the back 30 yards of their PP, leaving (If I remember correctly) 120 yards. This is temporary until they move to Alabama with us this month. I *hope* they will leave the trees alone down there!
Also, the run-in shed has moved down the street to my neighbor's. They did a fast job of disassembling that! Less then two days. They were even able to pull the six 6x6 posts out of their cement footings -- and I made back a tenth of what I paid for the materials to build it. A good deal all around.
So this is the only nice solid scratching post left in their area that doesn't hold electric fence anywhere on it. The brushes are screwed into the section of old barn beam set into the ground. Each brush has three long screws through it, which have not worked loose. The scratching post is in the dry lot, close to where the run-in shed was.
Well, I suppose it's time to get back to the fun & games of getting ready to move -- but I just had to "scratch my itch to post" a new blog entry.

Stella's swath of destruction
This should keep them away from the tree! (It's just around the bend.)
