DIY Goat Playground

If you have goats, you know that they can be both amusing and mischievous. Billy can definitely keep you on your toes! You may also have noticed that goats absolutely love to climb things. You may not have a mountain in your back yard, but you can still provide your goats with entertainment and exercise by making them a DIY goat playground. A local Dallas, GA vet offers some great tips on how to do that in this article.


Huge tires, like those used on tractors or big trucks, are often very cheap when bought secondhand. These can be lots of fun for goats! Bury the tires upright, just deep enough to make them sturdy, so they won’t topple over.

Old Furniture

Thrift stores and yard sales can be a gold mine for people with goats! Old tables can be buried in the ground to make a sturdy goat platform. Solid end tables and coffee tables will also work well.

Used Stairs

When people replace their stairs, they often throw the old ones away or give them away for free. Keep an eye on local free and cheap classified ads.

Child’s Play Sets

An old kids’ slide or playset can make a perfect goat plaything. Plastic ones work great for goats. See-saws are also lots of fun for Billy.


If you ever need a quick smile, look up some videos of baby goats playing on trampolines. This one may be as much entertainment for you as it is for your goats!


You can do all sorts of things with old pallets! Stack them into pyramids or mountains, or attach several into a giant staircase.

Cable Spool Stand

A big wooden cable spool is another great addition to your goat playground. If you can, get several and connect them together with ramps.


Always put safety first. Before giving anything to your goats, make sure it doesn’t have any loose boards or sharp edges. You’ll also want to look for nails or broken pieces. When setting things up in your goats’ playground, be sure that they are sturdy, so they won’t tip over on your four-legged buddies. Ask your vet for more information.
