Corral

 

a structure made of local materials (wattle plastered with clay, adobe, or cane) in which cattle, sheep, horses, camels, and other farm animals are kept. It is used primarily in livestock-grazing areas—Eastern Siberia, Kazakhstan, Middle Asia, Northern Caucasus, and the Ukraine. A closed corral consists of a lean-to with partial walls 1.2–2 m high or a shed; the norms of space for each animal are 3.5–5 sq m for cattle, 5–8 sq m for horses, and 0.3–1 sq m for sheep.

An open corral is usually a piece of land enclosed by a fence 2–2.5 m high. For protection from cold and storms, corral-havens are built that are more than 2.5 m high and are shaped like an open rectangle, a triangle, and so on.
