In order for DaleDell to get fed when he wanted to be fed and stay in with the other boys, we came up with a 'Jump feeder'.  Our Great Pyrenees are diggers, meaning they go under things to get to their food, but DaleDell likes to go over things to get to his food.  We hot wired around his buck pen and he stays home.  Then we built him his feeding area (see below) and he had to jump over the boards to get to his food.  At first he was a little reluctant to jump, but soon it was just as normal as eating, and he does enjoy eating.  The great advantage of the feeding system is the goats can't eat dog food.
