two 4 panels hinged together, two 6 panels hinged together, and a 4 and 6
combo panel, we ultimately decided that the 4 x 6 combo panel was the most
Note: We recently needed a way to haul a ram lamb when our full size truck was in the shop.

Here are the supplies and directions for making one
Lay the 2 vertical supports on the ground 6 feet apart. Lay the 5 horizontal slats - evenly spaced - on the vertical supports and screw them to the vertical supports.

For hinged panels: lay two completed panels flat on the ground, then install 3 sets of 3 strapping hinges (at top, center and bottom).
