Are you trying to corral those goats into a pen? With so many goat pen ideas out there, it’s tough to find which one is right for you. Goats need to be in an enclosure for their own safety from things like theft and predators.
There’s an old saying that goes, “If it can’t hold water, it can’t hold a goat!”. Basically, goats are escape-artists, which is why a goat pen needs to be built correctly.
