This is one of the best pieces of exercise equipment you can make. It's made out of readily obtainable 1 1/4 inch square tubing and one piece of 3/4 inch plywood.
Many goat people have asked me to put pictures of the feeder I have developed out on the internet. It works on the principal that goats have got to put the their feet on something so, why not give it to them. The low step gives them their standing spot and prevents them from backing up to the trough and making a fresh deposit. The top purlin swivels and doesn't allow the goats to stand in the trough. However, its mounted loosely with pipe and sucker rods on each end so when that expensive, but dumb, herd sire tries to jump through it will come unpinned and save him for another day.
