After two weeks of puzzling and experimenting and researching the most effective, least wasteful way to dispense hay to goats, I believe I have discovered a solution. Using a small roll of leftover fencing and some chicken wire, I created a hanging hay feeder for the goats. It fits right in the corner of their communal dwelling and the spaces in the fencing are the perfect size for nibbling, but not so big that hay gets pulled out and wasted. I'm a genius. Or a good copy cat. One or the other.
