    Looking for some feedback and double check on plans to house 3-4 goats. Location is in the Northeast, will often see significant snow with 1-2ft on the ground most of the winter. Not sure if goats will be the same but the chickens rarely venture out during that period. There is a 16x8 section of barn available, would that be enough to house 3-4 goats happily? For a layout my plan was for 2 4x5 stalls on one side, leaving an 8x11 open area. Feed and water would be along one of the 11' sections, the exit/entrance would be on the other.
