    cattlepannels, attach half a cattle pannel to the fence makeing it into a "V" with the two ends attached to a solid fence you could use a bigger piece and round the end to hold more, but there is a limit as the animals can only reac in so far, then just fork over the hay or limbs into the "hay pen" and the animals will eat through the bars, if you have goats with horns you may need to cut a few holes bigger so they can manuver through but thats not a big deal,
    worked great for me

    I don't have plans but I built this all on my own and it works great. The slats are spaced with a 5 inch opening so they can get there head in and out without getting stuck. If you dont have a barn the cattle panel hay feeder on the fence works great and you can put a panel hooped over it with a tarp on top to keep the hay dry.
