Here is the size you can make it shorter not as wide or what ever you want with it because its pretty large even for full sized goats. However I love it this way. It is 3ft 6in long, 1 ft 10 inches tall at the standing surface and two feet wide. I have put 500lbs on it and it didn't even creak. I'm going to give everything letters so its easier. You can letter the boards too. Kind of like the stuff you get in the store. What you will need. 4x4 wood post (instead of 2x4 which can wiggle) (A)Two 1 ft 8 inch (B)Two 3ft 2x6 boards (you can also use 2x4s or even 2in plywood for some of it) (C)Four 3ft 6in (D)Four 3ft (E)Eight 1ft 8in (F)Two 1ft 1in Other Supplies I think we used 3in screws. I suggest you do not use nails can they wiggle out. Power tools are a must. You need at least a hand saw and a power screw driver. Its optional but you can also drill holes for the screws to keep the wood from cracking. First things first you need to make the frame. Take two C's and two E's and make a box using at least two screws on each joint. Then take another E and place it in the center of your box again using two screws on each end to place it there. It does not have to be perfectly center just eye it. After that's done take two D's and and place them on top on the outer sides of the box. Screw the ends as well as the sides to the box. Then another two C's and place them on the top center of the box and screw them on the ends and to the center E. This step can also be accomplished with a sheet of plywood the same size as the box with holes cut for B but it will not last as long. Next take the A's and B's and place them on the outer corners of the box and screw them there. The B's on the corners with holes for them. Be sure to make sure it stands level with A. Now place and E on the inner sides of the A's and B's and screw them both onto them and the main frame Your main frame is now done so lets start with the headlock which is more complicated. There are several ways to do with. The hard way like the pictures or an easier way without cutting out the neck space. Take two E's and screw them onto the B's on the side closer to the standing area like pictured on the first picture. Next either use two 3ft 2x4s for the neck or two D's and place them between the B's like pictured. How ever you do it make sure there is at least 3 1/2 inches even up to 4 since your goats have horns of space between them for the goats neck. Now fix either one to the E's you placed there earlier. With the other one you may or may not need to cut a corner off to make it swing open properly just test it and see what works best for you. Once you figure out how you want it proceed to close everything up. Take one F and place it at the bottom of the opening between the B's screw it into your stationary D with two screws then take one screw and use it on your opening D. Now take your last F and do the same as before but this time do NOT put on on your moving D. Last but not least screw another E on the top front of your B's then use a piece of scrap wood on the front(marked as X) to keep the feeder steady. For closing the neck piece you can either use a hook latch like pictured or somehow place a chain onto it. Goats with horns learn how to open the hook latch type so if you have horned goats use the chain type. This is the way I have my feeder but but if your using a different setup you can modify it to fit your needs.
