Stuck goats

We put up this really nice combo panel fencing and pens. The squares in the combo are about 6". Some of these silly goats have been getting their heads stuck. One solution for one totally dingy girl (son says it's because she's a blonde) was to tape a branch a wee bit bigger than the measure of her horns. She was pretty with that bright red tape! I told him there are a few others we need to do it with. But this a.m. it was the hornless buck! I heard some goat sounds outside, but thought it was just the kids wanting their breakfast. Turns out it was my dear Raleigh. Head stuck through, eyes glazed. Son cut one bar and he slid out fine. You'd think they'd communicate to each other that it's a really stupid trick to stick your head through. I guess I just give them too much credit for intelligence. LOL

Goats are a pain that way...perhaps some plastic rolled fence,like construction sites etc use fastened to inside of the 6" mesh?
