Hay bale barrier

covering hay with tarp

The goats have been bad again.

Somehow they figured out how to pull down a hay bale and use it to jump up to the remaining pile of bales.

Maybe this tarp will keep them out?

I love the look on the goats face. It's like "Who me?"

the goats are likely to just nibble on the tarp. My goats enjoy eating anything that is thin. Especially ropes.

Maybe the whole starplate area is "their" space, so you might actually be better off moving the hay to the barn?
