    "Since goats tend to rub on walls and fences, they have to be extremely sturdy.
    When you put in fencing, use eight foot wooden or metal posts. Space them eight to ten feet apart and bury them at least two feet deep. If you’re using T-posts, pound them in past the V at the bottom that holds them in the ground. The corner posts must be on the outside as goats will climb up a fence support in the blink of an eye."

    Just remember, it's wrong to kick a goat.

    Goats can be a major pain in the neck and pocket book.

    Went with a hog wire style. Put in posts and now installing the panels I built.

    We have a garden now but it's much too small.

    Excellent job Sas my boy!

    If you do raised beds make them deep enough that they become "compost" piles in themselves. The better the soil the better the yield!

    I figure California goats must be too lazy to jump over that fence. Mississippi goats would be laughing.

    At a farm I worked at, the goats were fond of leather work gloves. You take your gloves off , and come back to find one missing, and the goat consuming it. Seems they like the salt from perspiration in sweaty gloves.

    One thing goats were good for, was mowing down poison ivy. They love eating poison ivy.

    We have GREAT soil here. This area was a wash and has lots of minerals in the soil. I've never seen anything like it. Even so, the compost idea is a definite.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    @Sasquatch nice thing about goats Squatch is if they give you too much trouble you can always eat them.
