Cheap, Easy Goat Scratcher

With the animals shedding their winter coats, they want to rub along anything to scratch their backs. Make this cheap goat scratcher to save your fencing from seasonal wear.

All you need is a stiff bristle broom. This one was free - it broke and was abandoned on a job site where my husband was working. He brought it home for me and I used zip ties to mount it to this post. My goats love brushing up against this.

I use zip ties for everything - but if your goats are particularly playful you might want to use more than 2 as they can snap under enough force.
