Attached is a 3 goat key hole feeder. Truth be told it is rare all three boys will tolerate being that close but it does work if they are in the mood. Otherwise it is great for 2. The front panel slides out for cleaning[attachment=0:82r6d5nr]Goat feeder Setup smfile.JPG[/attachment:82r6d5nr]

My husband helped me build it. It is plywood and cedar with house paint. It is a year old now with 3 goats and it works great. My boys do not chew things with paint. The paint makes it easier to wash.

We call it the Monahan feeder as our breeder Colleen Monahan told us how to build it. The feeder is 6 years old now and going strong. I had to put 2x4's and concrete behind it as the boys will put thier heads in it, square their shoulder up to and try to ram it though the fence. I figure it is good exercise for them, they just like the banging noise.

Oh that is funny. I should have known Colleen influenced these a bit.

Coincidentally I just got off the phone with her just before I typed this. BTW, she is so dang cool & knowledgeable. Just confirming my 4 kids late next spring. YEAH!
For now though, I am having a ball with my "little" 2.5 year old Alpine & Lamancha goats. We went for short 1 mile hike today...12 degrees in 18" of fresh snow...they had fun & so did I.

Anyway, thx again for posting this Nancy!
