DIY Wooden Goat Perch

I do believe your goats will love you even more every time you add new things for them to pay with. The good thing is that there is so many ideas for things to add to their playground, remember the diy toys for your goats? You could also construct this diy wooden goat perch and add it to the mix.

It is a pretty simple project, especially if you are handy with the tools. There are many different approaches you could take for example, you could build it on the ground then attach it or if you are adventurous you could attach it as you build it. As for the required materials, we just recycled some left over plywood instead of buying from the local hardware store. Wood pallets could work too.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • plywood
  • wood screws & nails
  • handheld drill
  • miter saw
  • jigsaw
  • tape measure
  • marker
  • wooden poles
  • post hole digger (optional)
  • concrete (optional)
  • hacksaw (optional)

Measure and cut your plywood. Construct the frame before screwing on the boards that go on the top one by one. Use your jigsaw to cut a hole in the middle the same width as your pole. The real fun part involves digging holes for the poles. We borrowed our neighbor’s post hole digger.

I guess if you really wanted a strong and stable pole, then it would be wise to pour concrete into the bottom of the holes, however it is not necessary. Thread the platform you built earlier through the pole and then screw on the braces to keep it in place about 3 feet or so off the ground. Our goats love the new addition, I am sure yours will too! 🙂
