Finished up the goat hoof trimming stand. Pretty outrageous after looking at the puny little milking stands.
It came together quite well.
Scrounged junk lumber and stuff. Just used what I had laying around.
Made no trips to town or to neighbors to get stuff. Major success, I'd say.
The troops were on high alert when I hauled the thing down to the pasture gate. I suppose they were wondering what the old man was up to this time. . .
Note the similarity to the French head head choppin' gizmo. I figgered if one of 'em gave me trouble I'd turn 'em into taco meat. . . Had the machete readily available.
The process worked flawlessly. Three goats feet trimmed in about 20 minutes with no back pain.
No wrecks. No loss of temper. No nothing. Simply hold a can of sweet feed in front of them then dump in into the container in front. Simple as that!
First was the youngest/smallest. No problems.
Next was the milk goat doe. Again no problem. No pic though.
Finely the 195 pounder. Again no problem.
Lead 'em in the back and open the front when done. I'm liking this. . .
