Goats are coming in a week and a half! We're so far behind on the barn, and are scrambling now to get the pen walls and fence up at least. I've got 2 lamancha bucks and 2 lamancha does coming (boys are 4 months and girls are 2-3 years and in milk). We pretty much have everything figured out except for the feeders. We've decided to half a 2 foot strip of solid boards on the bottom of the stall to help keep the straw from being pushed out into the aisle, then we're going to attach cattle panels above it. I'm planning on cutting a couple squares out of the panels, and mounting the water buckets on the outside of the pen so it's easier to feed/water them. I'm wondering what height I should mount the water buckets though? As well as what height the mineral/baking soda feeder should be screwed to the wall at? Also, while searching for feeder designs/ideas, I saw KimM's which we think is a really great idea. But, again I have no idea how deep the feeder should be, how high it should be, and what height the bottom should sit at? I don't know how long to make it either for 2-3 goats. For now we'll only have 2 does, but I plan on retaining a doeling next year (If I get one), and there also needs to be enoughs pace for kids to share as well. (I'm thinking I'll make a stool or something so the kids can reach). I don't have a lot of space here, and am only allowed a certain number of animals so I can't ever see us having more than 3-4 does max. So how long do you think would give the goats enough space to all eat from the feeder? Here's a photo of the feeder we'd like to build (KimM's feeder that I found posted in another thread): Thanks a lot everyone for all the help!
