    Well i kinda asked this question before but i didnt really get an answer...lol
    Would normal field fencing keep a toggenburg goat in? And would it keep pygmy goats in?

    Here's a pic of what it looks like(i won't be using the barbed wire btw)

    That should be fine. DO they have horns? If so they will get their horns stuck. I have goats with horns, but what I do is take a piece of like PVC pipe and tape it across the horns so they can not get there heads in the squares.

    My pygmy's stick their heads through. I have pulled Valentine out of the same spot 3 times. We put wooden pallets down the fence line so she can't do it anymore. Now Romeo has decided he's a show jumper. :sigh: He jumps onto the trough then springs over the fence. We have moved the feeder farther away. Time will tell what they come up with next. :laugh: They may start tunneling under. (cue Hogan's Hero's theme music)

    I have used multiple types of fencing for my goats and I found that the larger the fence holes - the harder they try to get their heads through.
