I'm looking for an old fisherman's net real sturdy that I can put grassing in to hang for my goats. I was wondering if anyone would have any idea where to get something like this or or think it's a good idea or has a better idea?
We have a lot of nice grass right now that the goats are keen on eating but they don't have access to it and won't eat off the ground or out of a bin, but will eat it if we hang it on the the fence which is very laborious.
So I had this idea of getting a fisherman's net made of rope that I could fill with grass that icicle and hang it for the goats to be able to eat from.
I think I have seen this type of thing at a zoo but I'm not entirely sure.
This is just an idea I come up with, any other suggestions on how to put grass up for the goats graze on more than welcome.
I've seen many woven products that are meant to support hanging baskets. Those made from jute would probably be shredded by the goats, but the polyester units might survive. They usually make it to the free pile at yard sales.
Something fashioned from woven wire would be more durable.
Very common for horses. That is one of the big ones, they also sell smaller ones that only hold a small flake at a time.
I have a friend that bought a case of them, then uses it as her collection bags. Picks up all the grass she cut with a scythe or string trimmer, then hangs the bags in the barn to be used as needed in the winter.
Do you have anything that looks like that? Maybe an old dog cage, maybe a few scraps of cattle panel.
