Protecting trees from goats

I am looking for ideas on how to protect goat from eating the bark around various types of trees at my cottage property. Currently we have some of the smaller trees wrapped with chicken wire but there are just to many to possibly do every single one of them. I have read Sepp Holzer book with his techniques but I haven't found anyone else who has tried them to see if does in fact work or if it would work on goats.

Im going to try Sepp Holzers bone sauce ... He claims it works on just about any animal... watch the video that Paul has called "Sepp holzers bone sauce"... im putting it on my saplings to keep goats away.. I havnt tried it yet, but im sure it will work.
