Cables often come on those huge wooden spools which can be repurposed for the goats. Just lay the spool flat on the ground and watch the goats jostle for king of the mountain. I have several of these and the goats all love them. I put them in different configurations with various lengths of wooden planks to keep them interested. Maybe I should call them repurposed goat toys rather than homemade since there's not much "making" to them. What have you created or repurposed for your goats in order to keep them entertained and out of trouble.

Goats are naturally playful, but I had never thought of anything like this. I am assuming that old tires or hay bales can also suffice. Have you also noticed that they like to kick and push balls?

My goats seem to like my kids' old play set. There's a slide, seesaw, and storage house that they play with. The goats like anything they can climb too.

My goats love them. They also like playing keep away from one another. They're so fun to watch. I thought about teaching them to run an agility course, but haven't had the time.

I know people build some bridges and the goats can play all day with those. Stuffs that allow them to move around or climb around seem to be good ideas.

And the beauty of it is that it is natural for them to be playful. Goats always need something to keep them busy until it is time to rest. Do you think it is a good idea to get them a trampoline?
