Thank y'all for all the suggestions. I didn't know there were so many to choose from! I have a lot of homework to do!

Watching the rawhide video, all the panels are on wheels. Wouldn't take much for a cow to take that round pen and make it into one long skinny pen just by hitting it and running. They would pull it all over the place

They do it to stationary pens. Can't imagine what it would be like on wheels. Better drive a few t posts.

We own one and there really is no need. It is pretty heavy and they don't move much. It comes wth stabilizers to keep then from pushing it out but they don't suggest using them to allow it a little give.

Actually that's a plus. Arrange them in a circle to get the most area for penning. After they are penned, work them around so they're a long narrow alley, which works better for loading. Had a large set of portable panels for gathering and shipping stockers off wheat pasture. Would set up in circle for penning then scoot them around with cattle inside until in long narrow setup. Arrange them with some curve in a crescent shape as panels set up in a curve stand up better than in a straight line. Another plus is if one goes nuts and crashes into fence it just moves from the impact without bending. If posts are installed, can sometimes result in bent panels. Have shipped a lot of cattle this way and only bent panels were from when they were attached to post or something else solid.
