    My question is for anyone who has used the cattle panels:
    How hard do you think it will be to bend a 36" radius in the cattle panel?
    I need a tractor that will fit through the garden gate.
    I have made plans for a wooden Tractor 3'x8'.
    But, something really grabs me about the Hoop Coop.

    I dont think that you could get them to bend that much, unless you used a whole panel and then it would be about 8 feet tall!

    Instead of bending them why not cut in half and wire the top together and make a triangle shaped tractor.

    Well 7 feet ish though I could trim it down a bit to about 6 ft at the top of the arch​
