    I'm sure some of you have seen this website before. I just ran across it yesterday and spent an hour reading it. Very interesting. I have considered a paddock arrangement several times because I have the space to do it but I haven't applied myself very well since I have been so sick this past summer.

    I haven't had a chance to read all of it, yet. I just wanted to say how entertained I was by the feedback comments. [​IMG]

    No matter what you do or how you do it, there will always be people that think you are brilliant, an idiot or maybe even evil.

    I'd love to do a paddock system, but our backyard is pretty poor for grazing right now. We had an awful drought this summer and almost everything but the mondo grass died. I'm reseeding with winter rye and millet.

    I started reading that & found even more interested links within the article. Great stuff.
