    The hay feeder in the boys area - is that made with fencing? Does it ever scratch them on the sides?

    That is alot like what I am wanting.

    Thanks for the ideas!

    Yes it's made of fencing. It is nailed down all alont the side so it doesn't cut them.

    Here are some more pics.

    I don't know if this is what mcf does but we file down the sharp edges when we cut something for the goats.

    They like the stuff on the top :roll: But sometimes they pick through the bottom.

    Me and my dad built it in in the spring.

    I LOVE coming up with new ideas! Feeders, pens, toys......... LOL

    Nope I didn't file the edges, the aren't sharp, they are kind of stuck in the side of the barn anyways. :)

    I really like that sleeping bench- maybe I'll have the gumption to make one for my girls too.

    MissMM, I wish I could have a feeder as long as yours. My goats would NEVER EVER share. They all have to have their own. I just made new feeders, that i have on the wall. I am tired of having it in feeders on the floor, because all they would do is throw it all out and eat what was on the bottom and then they would not touch the stuff that hit the ground.
    I have to say, for the animals the "eat everything", they sure don't eat much. :)
    I will have to try to get some pictures of the feeders I build. I llike building and saving money every chance I can.

    Yep, those are Pygoras. They are sooooo incredibly cute and fun.... I'm addicted. I found the PVC very cheap from a local plumber... he had a piece on hand that was damaged so I got it for pennies on the dollar. Plus it's so easy to get stall chores done when the goats know I'll turn the feeder over when I'm done..... they stay out of my way so they can get their grain! Otherwise, they're constantly climbing all over me and I never get anything done besides cuddling.

    Norbert (pictured) just loves to have his belly rubbed.

    Lap goats.... who woulda thought?

    :lol: :lol: :lol: The four legged one is Norbert. Ron (cowboy dude) thought I had finally lost it when I told him I wanted Pygoras...... now he's hooked too.

    I almost have him talked into making a cross country trip next summer to pick up more Pygoras from the west coast, providing they come out OK over there. The shipping $ we'd save could be used to buy another goat or two.

    If prayers are enough, they will all be ok.
