How many 12' panels does it take to make a 60' round pen? Or what size pen will 11, 12' panels make?

I think 11 will make about a 50' round pen

It would take sixteen 12' panels to get a 60' diameter round pen.

Here's how to calculate how many panels of what size you'll need: Multiply the diameter you desire by 3.14 to determine the pen's circumference. Divide the circumference by the length of the panels you wish to use. Example: If you plan to use 12 foot panels to construct a 60 foot pen, multiply 60 by 3.14 to get a circumference of 188.4, then divide 188.4 by 12 (panel length) to get 15.7. So you will need 16 panels for a slightly larger than 60-foot pen.

Thanks! I knew there had to be a formula, but I definitely couldn't figure it out!

FYI- Those 12' panels are heavy to move!! I stick with 10' , 6 rail heavy duty panels....
Make sure you get the ones that are squared at the top-- not rounded. The rounded upper corners can catch a horses leg and bust it easily!
When they lay me down to rest, put my spurs and rope upon my chest. Get my friends to carry me and then go turn my horses free.
