Just normaly power pole size? I've seen some that are skinnier and some that are BIG. And WHERE would you look for them?
Thanks so much.

Normal power pole width of about 12 to 16 inches is fine.
Imagine the width of a mare that the stallion would be breeding and try to go no wider than that when the padding is added - a little narrower is no problem, though of course don't go too narrow.
We have been able to get power poles from our local utility company - often ones that have been broken. Although the article title says "power pole", other wood sources could of course be used - it's just nice to use a power pole as it is treated so it won't rot when in the ground. Rail-road ties might work equally well if you can get them long enough, alternatively regular wood that has been treated will do fine.
Hope this helps.
