One of the things my goats love to do is scratch…on anything. The hay feeder, a tree, even my backend. (yep, I said it) There is nothing more pleasant than a goat scratching her itchy wet nose all over my behind in the middle of winter…said no one ever.[spacer height=”20px”]
The other day I was at a friends house and saw the neatest thing. She had attached brushes onto the wall for her goats to scratch on. I just loved this and couldn’t wait to do the same for my crew.[spacer height=”20px”]
Now that we had the brush, all we needed to do was attach it. Handy Man drilled two holes through the brush to make it easier for me to attach it to the wall.[spacer height=”20px”]
Make sure to put it at a height that will suit both your taller and smaller goats. If that is a tricky thing to do, you can always install a second brush.[spacer height=”20px”]
Before I even had the brush attached, my big buck Toby was over scratching away! I was really excited to see him use it right off.[spacer height=”20px”]
Soon after Ariel was using it too. 🙂 I just love my goats.[spacer height=”20px”]
I have yet to see if this will deter them from using me as a scratching post, but I am so pleased with the brush. This is such an easy and affordable project. I will be getting another for my second pen where my younger does are, however, I think a softer bristle brush will be better for them. :)[spacer height=”20px”]
