Our goats love the spools in their pens also. Some more than others, which is kinda funny.
Are those your Obers? How old are they? They're pretty :) The sheep is cute too, hangin with the goats :p

I didn't even notice the sheep until I read Scottyhorse's comment and had to go back and look lol. They look like they are all enjoying the new toys.

I havent met a goat who doesnt love to climb and jump around on those spools , lol. Just a word of caution from a over protective momma...
I cover those holes up that are on top of the spools.....Im so afraid on one getting their feet stuck and breaking a leg. Every spool I have here has a wood plank covering the holes up. Hate to be a dark cloud , but I couldn't not mention it to you. I always think of the worst stuff sometimes , lol.

^^^^ mine too!!! I drove 30 minutes to go get some free ones and so far maybe a handful of kids have checked it out over a year. Now this rock in their pen they will fight to the death over that lol
Your goats look very happy with their new toy and the sheep seem to be trying to figure out what the big deal is lol

Skyla and Jessica , try putting a smaller step next to their spools.
Thats what I did when first introducing them to taller ones , now they jump up on the tallest one from the ground , lol. Just a thought ;)

Ok , good :) At least no one can get their little feet stuck in them.
I firmly believe if it seems impossible or highly unlikely to be done , a goat will do it and then some !
