Thanks to a grant from GFAS End of the Road Ranch was able to put in this much needed shelter.
A couple of years ago EOTRR was able to put together a circular paddock fashioned after Jamie Jackson's Paddock Paradise. The North and South ends are covered in p-gravel, the east and west sides are dirt tracks. A third of the east side consists of a hill covered in naturally occurring rocks. Salt and minerals are located on the hill. There's sand to roll and lay in at the N.E. corner and an auto fill water trough on the S.E. corner. Eleven of the Mares that are not physically impaired spend their days in this paddock.
Ongoing circular paddock shelter project.
Before moving any horses onto the property EOTRR had
all of the barbed wire fencing removed and replaced with barb-less
twisted wire. Over the years we have had several injuries due to the
wire fencing. When installing the round paddock we went with a type of
hot-wire called Horseguard. Now instead of trips to the vet and long
recovery times from injuries sustained we just smile and spend 15
minutes re-stretching the horseguard. This fencing has saved EOTRR
time, money and anguish over injuries. We can't say enough good about
