    We keep our goats behind a no climb fence with both top and bottom boards and have never had a problem, but I had someone ask me today what the best type of fence to keep small goats behind would be.

    I have only ever kept goats this way so what are other ways you have had success with?

    Here you can kind of see how our fence is set up...

    Thanks for your responses in advance!

    I just have the 4' woven wire no climb horse fence for my Nigerian Dwarfs. Just make sure they can't get under it.

    I have the same fence - Mine is welded wire, which is a bit of a drawback versus the woven wire.

    Beautiful goats!

    Electric, kept over 5,000 volts. Works like a charm.
