What are sheepfolds used for in animal husbandry? I know they are a pen for sheep. But you got your pasture and you got your sheepfold/pens out in the pasture land. What role they play in the whole scheme during medieval times before the 18th century enclosure.

Temporary sheepfolds (hurdles) were set on farm fields to provide, um, natural fertilizer.

The decisions on where to set these hurdles and regarding how many sheep to pen therein could be the sources of legal actions.
