Getting Ready for the Goats (Bucks) — Part 2

With the buck shelter itself built there were a number of “amenities” to add, such as fencing (to keep them in and the coyotes out), feeding and storage concerns, and playtime. Again, we cut locust trees from the property and stripped the bark off to make fence posts a bit more economically — if not more labor intensively (chuckle). For the buck enclosure we intermixed 8′ metal T-Posts with the locust posts, giving us some expansion options to continue the fencing up the hill behind their shelter at some point in the future. This time around we also coated the bottom of the posts with a livestock-safe asphalt paint to assist in rot prevention beneath the ground. With a bit of help clearing the land and setting posts the fencing was up in a handful of days. Ready for the boys!
