Most goats I know certainly look the cattle gaurd over before trying to cross them. I worry a tinch when I come up to them, especially if they have a light covering of snow on them- but I wouldn't use a cattle gaurd thinking it would stop the goats on my property . All of mine would clear them with just a 1/2 leap.Bob Jones said:Nope. Goats aren't scared of heights. I would be concerned that if they were playing on them and slipped they might break a leg.
Last year I had to cut back all the lower branches of the trees to keep them from climbing them.
