Ok, I have read and thot about tethering out at least one goat so the others will stay close by. I find that this idea is more trouble than it is worth! I even thot about tying one goat to a heavy tire! Not such a great idea. This is my canumdrum.......I will have 40 acres, 20 or so of that will be fenced off for the horses. At this point my fence line will have hot tape on the top, solar powered. My horses will respect this and technically that is all they will need to keep them on the property. I was thinking that I should run another tape about half way down the post, also hot. Down low enough on the post so it is goat hieght. Will this keep the goats in the fenced off pasture? There will be plenty for them to eat and they will be brought in to thier pen at nite. If you have any other suggestions, I am open here! I do not have alot of money to spend on elaberate fencing and the money I do have to spend is going into thier pen fencing. I do realize that they will have to get "shocked" at least once to respect the tape, just like my horses. Once shocked, will they stay away from it? It is white tape and very visible.
