Cattle panels work great! We learned this after my goat Jackie played Houidini and kept getting out and one day munched all my rose bushes, tree roses and lilac bushes, no not all in one day, but close. She was clearing the electric fence and thats how she got out by jumping. I can tell some stories about ehr now. another time i figured i had her outfoxed now. We put up woven wire and she still got out, Ok... that time was "war' as she got into the kitchen of our house when we were building it and got into all the baking ingredients which were bixed plus ate a cookbook, the paperback kind. There was flour, confectioneres sugar ans sugar all over, looked like someone robbed the place. so we got cattle panels.
I would suggest for horns to place a stick cross ways on the hors, like a bar, this helps, to prevent them from getting their heads cught, and we lost one to that too. hope this helps.
