    I may have gotten a lead on galvanized siding, and was curious if that's ok for goats and lambs. I have two goat sheds that they are eating the wood (OSB siding) off the sides. My plan was always to overlap with steel siding but then I came across the galvanized. I didn't know it's ok for them to chew on that..... because we all know that they will.

    Thanks, Mike

    The galvanized will work just fine.....and they won't chew on it unless theres something there to chew. I don't know if you plan on painting it or if it's coming already painted, but until it starts to peel or flake they won't chew it. Now, I don't have an issue with my goats eaing the OSB their barn is sided with, I do have a problem with them rubbibg their horns on it...creating gouges in it that I need to repeatedly paint over to prevent rot.
