Rolling Goat Feeder
To eliminate the potential danger in dealing with pushy/aggressive goats at feeding time, King, NC, farmer David Carroll built a feeding trough that he fills outside his goat pasture, then rolls it under the bottom wire of the pasture fence. He made it by nailing two vinyl gutters side-by-side onto a 10-foot-long 2" x 10" board, with an axle and set of wheels affixed under the board at one end. He then attached a rope at the other end to pull his feeder from under the fence.
