    I'm looking for home made feeder idea to hold hay and bales of hay. Like a hay feeder for square bails in the feed so they can't climb on them. If you one can i please see your pics to get idea how there made. I'm new to goats and hubby had a hard anough time figuareing out the shelter and chciken coop.

    There are MANY designs that will work
    Google images of "small hay feeders" to get some ideas

    They can be sized to hold entire bales, multiple bales, or single flakes, depending on how many animals youre feeding.

    For horned goats, make sure they cant get thier head through it

    I folded a peice of welded wire in half. One side was stapled flush to a wall in the barn. I used a chain to keep the hay sandwiched (sp) tightly on the flakes of hay. It worked really well. Sorry no pic.
