how do all you goat keepers fence their randy asses in?

i've been pointed to something about like this:

http://www.premier1s...ail&fence_id=85

but some of that seems superfluous so i'd be looking at more like this:

http://www.premier1s...es.com/cart.php

but i'm wondering what else is out there.

i should also say that i don't need it in a huge area and i need to be able to move it around.

you need at least a 6 foot fence,
my 3 month old doeling can clear
4 feet no problem.
the premier netting is too flimsy,
and if goats have horns
they get tangled and if electrified
can be fatal.
i turned mine off
after it killed a goose and several frogs,
damn near killed panicked goat tangled in it
but i was there to cut power.
my advice ?
frame in pen with plywood,
they won't jump over
fences they cannot see thru/over.

a buck in rut can clear a 6 foot fence.
i spent over $500 on a fence
that held my buck
exactly 1.5 days.
works best if they're raised in fence from birth on...

I thought this thread was on how to sell rustled herds of goats.

But seriously, this may have something to do with the popularity of smaller breeds these days- they can't jump so high....

yeah, gonna check out a couple pygmy goats tonight,
one = $15 but she's only 1 month old,
the other = $40 but she's 3 mos. old and weaned.
i hear they eat less and give more milk, proportionately.
