    I don't know for sure and will not be back over there for a couple days. It is good sized though.

    Hm. you could wait a couple of days and go through the hassle to measure it. OR, we could do some math and figure it out RIGHT NOW! how exciting! It's math time!

    A roundpen is a circle. We know the circumference of the circle:

    14 gates x 12 feet each = 168 feet, add 5ish feet for walk-through gate, we have a circumference of 173 feet

    Now we do some simple algebra.

    The formula for finding diameter is C = 3.14 x d

    so

    173 = 3.14 x d

    173 / 3.14 = d

    173/3.14 = 55.09

    BINGO!!

    Countryacres' roundpen is approximately 55 feet in diameter.

    Always rotate your tires, no matter how loud the elephant screams
    It is what you read when you donít have to that determines who you will be when you canít help it.

    Thank you for the math. You make it sound so easy. I never was good at math when I was in school let alone now that I am out of school. lol
