    I thought this would be useful for those people designing/building barns...I went through this section and pulled out the threads about barns that had pictures.

    General Livestock
    Housing & Space Guidelines for Livestock
    We are finally getting a barn!

    Cattle
    Inexpensive calf housing

    Goats
    Goat Housing
    Goat housing, pictures anyone?
    Goat Jail (PIX)
    Is this appropriate housing for two nigis and a mini?
    Our Barn
    Our new goat shelter
    Photos of the inside of your goat barns please!
    Progress on Fence & Shelter

    Rabbits
    i would like to see your bunnie pens
    Rabbit Hutch Plans....

    Sheep
    I made a summer home for my sheep
    Temporary run-in/shelter?

    -----

    If you would like to add any links, please PM me so I can add them here.

    Also, some of these ideas can be used across different species, ie goats and sheep can use the same type of shelter, the calf housing can be used for sheep and goats, some of the larger goat housing can be used for cattle, etc.
