Anyone have some ideas? Work-out bench = Goat Stantion?

    I have this old work-out bench I have been hauling from house to house, knowing I would use it eventually for SOMETHING... After I got milk goats, I had an AHA moment. It has the same basic structure of a goat stantion, but it's a little too short, and a little too narrow. But with some modifications, I know it could be an awesome stantion. Trouble is, I'm new to milk goats, and not a welder, though if need be, I have a family member who is.

    I want it to be easily broken down to move it (it is terribly heavy as it is) and it does have some places where I can screw in something. So, would you suggest wood, or metal build? And does any ingenious people out there have any plans? *hopes*

    And is there any way to put locking wheels on it, so I can roll it around?

    Perhaps I should take some pictures, though the barn is terribly dusty and dark...
