New panels for a round pen. I took Katie to help load them because there was 19. We almost died it was so scary they almost fell on us!!!!!!! Posted by Katie
While Kid 2 was exaggerating somewhat, we did have a bit of a wreck when we were loading the panels on the trailer. There were 19 panels leaning against the fence. The seller and I were lifting the third one off the stack when the remaining sixteen panels tipped forward.
Sixteen panels all together are NOT light. We both staggered. I managed to stay on my feet, but the seller landed on her rear in a snow bank. We both ended up with monster bruises on our upper arms from where the panels first hit us.
Everything went pretty smoothly after that though. I'm excited to finally have a round pen. It will come in handy for lessons and training, especially for when the girls are gentling their 4-H BLM mustangs this summer. The extra panels and gates will be used to make pens as needed.
