[RC] re: Paddock / Pasture Paradise - Michelle Aquilino

Katrina, in simple terms, it's a 20-40 foot wide track, as opposed to a large square/rectangular pasture.? Putting feeding "stations" and water troughs in different areas of the track, encourages movement throughout the day.? You can also put some stretches of different types of footing in order to encourage healthy hooves.? I even saw a video online where the horses had the option of doing a creek crossing onto an "island" as part of their track (or they could go an alternate route to skip the island portion).? It can be very flexible to the land that you have available...
