I wanted to plant some Yellow Box Gums to for shade in one of my paddocks to create shade for my horses… is this theist type of Gum. wanted to create shade and attract flowers for birds. Just need to know how close apart… big paddock but want to keep restricted area as say 50-60 square meters… thanks in advance

My guess is that the horses would eat or crush the young plants.
