    I saw everyone else sharing their homemade things, so I wanted to share ours. I've came up with the plans for these and conned my husband into helping, I'm sure he loves it when I get some paper out and draw him my great idea for what to do that day :p

    New hay feeders, we made 6 of these today

    Thanks. I was actually thinking about making some things to sell. I'm not sure if there would be a market around here though, not many goat people around. I figured the hay feeders cost us about $8 each, including the screws. You can't buy feeders for that!
    We had a lot of wood laying around the farm here so put some to use, we build 4 stalls inside the barn too.

    Absolutely make things to sell! you might as well have extra income right? After all if they don't sell then you have ready made supplies for your own farm. We are planning to construct a few things extra to make a few dollars on, Why not?

    SOooo sooo nice :) We'll be making permanent hay racks soon, and I might make some like yours out of scrap pallets!
    That outdoor shed....we really need one of those! Maybe we'll build something like that when we get done with our barn, which will happen as soon as we run into a few nice, warm, dry days!
