Goat Escape Preventive Collar

Take a Plastic bucket lid and an old knife or a piece of wire,Heat the knife or wire up over open flame such as a gas range or wood fire, depending on goat size,if small cut rim off lid, then select a old tin can the aproximate size of goats neck ,for young goats a juice can is just right for. Heat the rim of the can and center the can on the lid and Push down till it goes thru, then Take the knife heat the blade the length and make a slit from center to rim of lid, then take a nail hold with pliers and heat the nail , and make 4 holes close to the slit one set on each side of the slit . then get some shoelace or raw hid e thong and lace it up , get the goat & have some one hold it while you make adjustments . Wow, you have a fence proof goat with next to no expense! if you need to see it in action e-mail me for pictures. this idea came from when granny had a calf that liked to poke her head thru the fence she used two wooden stickes formed in to an x and tied on to the calf.
