Goat Water System

I believe I have used almost every type of container there is to provide my goats with fresh, clean water on a consistent basis. I now use hook-over buckets. I have placed the containers in the corner of the pen, at the far end, I have even hung them from trees with a rope. None of those worked to my satisfaction. Goats can make a mess of their water really fast. I caught my big buck grabbing a mouth full of hay and soaking it in the water. After it moistened to his liking he would then remove it (most of it) and eat it. What a mess. I now have all of the goat water containers on the outside of their pen. I am able to clean and fill very easy now.


  1. What a great Idea! Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Caring for your pets is important. Especially for those who bring you such an excellent and useful product as goat's milk. Therefore, the process of drinking should be the best.
