Pea gravel framed by logs on the downhill side of a corner of our turnout track.
Stella, Jewel, and Ally swap places at three slow feeding stations grouped together. The hanging NibbleNets are only 15 feet apart and the feeder toy box is about 25 feet from the nets. For maximum spontaneous movement, the hanging nets should be a little farther from each other.
The NibbleNet closest to the camera is the "Picnic" model, with regular 1.5-inch openings and special-order lowered rings and higher sides.
Interestingly, dominant Stella seems to prefer the distant hanging Picnic with its extra-small 1.25-inch openings. After she chased Jewel away from the 1.5-inch Picnic, she returned to the 1.25" version before checking out Ally's challenge feeder fastened inside the feeder box.
Jewel & Stella get acquainted with their new Paddock Paradise.
Here's a picture of our soon-to-be new place in Alabama. It's a four-acre corner lot on two dirt roads.
The ground slopes gently down from the north side.
My first-ever attempt at drawing fence lines on a satellite view picture is on the right. The existing fence line is blue. Red will be the first inner fence. Purple will be an inner fence doubling as a riding ring.
Later on, both of the front paddocks will be connected like cul-de-sac ends of a labyrinthine PP turnout track winding through the woods.
Green shows the future perimeter fence, and yellow shows one possible option for the track fencing.

|tangledmanes||shipping container for storing hay||5||Sep 13 2009, 1:47 PM EDT by tangledmanes|
Thread started: Aug 26 2009, 11:50 PM EDT Watch
I've decided to buy a big ol' metal shipping/storage container to store my hay. I'm looking for opinions on placement. It will definitely go along the north fence at the west corner. But I am having trouble deciding whether to place it all the way out on the property line, allowing the Paddock Paradise track to be visible rather than hidden by it, or place it inside the existing fence for ease of hay loading, allowing that corner of Paddock Paradise to be hidden from my view. Any thoughts? Or words of wisdom regarding ventilating it? I'm considering a solar powered attic fan if I put anything on the roof. We don't have snow load to worry about, but I was thinking about trying to get away with vents near the top along the walls. I haven't lived in Alabama through a winter yet, but our general summer climate has been hot and well drained, despite the occasional torrential rain.
I would appreciate any input. :-)
