Pregnant that is. She never came back into heat so I should have babies in Feb! Yay for me, also I started building the goat stanchion for her. The legs are 22 inches and or 20 inches I can't remember. Anyways, how tall should the head stall be? She's 20 inches at the shoulder and 19 months old so I don't think she'll get much taller.

First off, congrats on the hopeful pregnancy!!! Whoot!!! :D

As far as the stand, usually the feeder is set at shoulder height for your goats; the head slider is 'adjustable' meaning it's just a slot, so there is really no set height, aside from the fact that they feed at shoulder height. :wink:

Good luck building your milking stand...we built one years ago, and it served us well (still is serving my mom well). I know there are sites on the web that can give you detailed instructions on how to build one too, if you find yourself 'stuck'!

Thanks. Also I put the roof on my goat shed I'm building. ALL BY MYSELF! And it's up to code and everything!

Thanks you guys, anyways. I'm adapting plans for the stanchion now, and I'm painting it white, then going to put a red border on it. =)
