I lag bolted mine to the barn that im using for indoors/outdoors, used 12' boards, put 3 8' corner post at both corners and one in middle, lag bolted together. PUt 2 cross supports all the way across the 30' pen to give tin support and then place 2x4's randomly in the middle of the pen to give wieght support for when it snows.

You can put your poles 4x4 at 8' oc then use 2x6 or 2x8 for a sloped rafter on each side of pole.
Use 2x4 for roof purlins that will span the 8' between poles.
I would space them no farther than 36" oc one at peak and eave.

If it was me I would buy galvalume mill finish R panels for the roof. They are cheaper plus no paint to worry with. If you buy painted make sure it's a Kynar finish if you want it to last.

For the poles 8' is ok Five foot will make a stronger structure.
Pitch the roof a min of 1' in 10' for good water run off
