Manger danger

goat manger in action

Of course the goats wanted to be on top of the new manger.

The thin plywood lid was collapsing when they stood on it, which could be a safety issue if they fall the wrong way.

Adding some 2x4's for support makes it more standable.

I would not woory about them falling off , my goats use my tractor as a playground if i leave it where they can get at it (ruins the paint job ) "sure footed as a mountain goat " is very true !they can easily standing jump onto a medium size tractor wheel ( 5 / 6 foot ) , now getting their heads stuck in a cattle pannel is another thing , once or twice a year here in TX i stop on the road to untangle a goat from a fence , dehorning makes life a lot easier .
