    This message could also go under "Coop and Run...," but I feel like "meatie raisers" are their own breed and are birds of a different feather (pardon the puns). I recently used vinyl siding on a pasture pen and noticed a benefit during the heat. Due to the flexibilty, I was easily able to raise/flap open the lowest piece of "double 5" siding. No need to construct a hinge mechanism. The siding will simply flop back down when I remove the 2x4" prop stick.
