Goats don't like to get wet nor muddy. If you use it to keep them on the other side I wouldn't do it. Cause they will go on the other side if they want to. I your using it as a water then go for it.
Any questions please let me know. :?:
I raise about 20 head of goats & 3 sheep. So I've been with goats for a while. If I don't know the answer I can normally find it. ;-)
