I'm working on designing animal enclosures for my new place and I'd like to see what other people out there have come up with. I want to mainly breed horses, but also bison, cows/bulls, and sheep/rams, I don't like the standard 1x2 jails, yes they are meta game efficient, but that's not why I play wurm. My latest draw up includes medium sized pastures and segregating horses by function and age, the other animals will be put in 3x4 pens, 6 animals per pen.
So here's how it works for the horses. The two stud pens are 2x2 and will have at most 1 male and 2 females. When the females get knocked up they get moved to the stable where they will have their own 1x2 or 2x2 pen. When the foal flops out like Ace Venture through a rhino, the adult female gets moved back to the stud pen and the foal gets moved to the foal pen. The workers are just extra horses paying their way by pulling carts etc.
All the other animals will be held in 3x4 pens, 1 pen for each animal type.
So that's the system I've come up with so far. I'd like to hear from others who have put some thought into their animal keeping. Pictures are always welcome .
