    If you have large goats like I do (boers) you may want to make that part of the stand on the front that holds the goats head out of a 2x4 instead of 1x4's . I had an adult Boer Doe (200#) that broke one of my uprights.

    She didn't like the replacement ear tag that I poked into her ear while she was eating out of the bucket. Note to self: Warn the goat the next time your going to pierce her ear. [​IMG]
