    That is a nice platform and it's obvious your goats love it.

    Not only is it valued for the "lounging", but it saves having to use a "barber pump" on the goats to get them in the "air" so ya don't have to bend too far.....or sit-n-do.....;).....our goats sure loved the deck on their house, and it worked well with the elevation changes for us.....the animals....BABIES and All!!!....:thumbsup
    @ Mike CHS ....maybe a platform in the chute would get the sheep up high enough to "trim" while standing or sitting....it would sure save the back.....:)

    We trim them when they are in the chair. The back has gotten stronger in the last few years so any pain now is more annoyance than anything else. :)

    Man, I want more rain and thunderstorms!!
    We had thunder/lightning storms in the forecast for 12 days straight...and the only day it rained was yesterday and now the entire forecast changed to full sun and 90 degrees :th Oh well!
    It's always nice to have company but then it's also nice when they leave ha ha
