    Another shot

    When hubby made this for me I thought he had lost his little punkin mind. After using it though, I won't go back to the other kind. I love it. They can't lay down...it doesn't hit the pressure points on the neck (happened to me and I thought I had killed her)...I can adjust it to fit little ones or regular sized does. Anyway, I love it.

    That is really a nice stand, Cricket! I was wondering how the rope fastens after you put it over the goat's neck, since I can't see it?

    Do you think hubby would mind giving dimensions on it? I've got to get a stand done before my little girl freshens. I think that one would work for goats with and without horns too.

    I'll measure this evening for you. The rope is slipped through a small hole on one side and knotted so it won't come out. Then measure - with the goat on the stand - the rope over the goat's neck and mark where you want a notch. Then you cut out the notch - a small rectangle - and then knot the loose end of the rope to slip into the notch. They pull up and back but not sideways so it works. No matter what you're doing to them, they can't lay down or choke themselves. They can try but they'll stand right back up because of the pressure under the jaw. I've put the kids on it to trim feet and didn't have to adjust anything. My does are small - about 20" at the shoulder - so we made the front accordingly. I just adjust where the knot is to how big the goat. Baby Girl never gets tied and would stand there if bombs were going off. Merrill must be tied in or she'll decide when you're finished and take herself off somewhere. I'll take some detail pics tonight too...

    That looks great. I'll have to remember it's here. Can't show the husband yet. He's got too much going on in his brain anyway..... finishing the fence, building a feeding trough, building a shelter (or two, or three :p ). If I even show him the pictures, he say.... "I don't need to see that now! We don't even have a milk goat yet!"
