Just started building my goat shack for one prego alpine I'm getting soon. It will have a 4x8' foot print. 4'x6' living area with a 4' wall height and I'm thinking rounded metal roof. Then it will have a covered 4x2 covered porch area.
This is the link to a video of our baby goats & in the background you can see the foundation started for our new goat barn. So excited!!! Right now they have a chain link dog pen with a pvc arch covered with tarps for their shelter. Sorry it does not show it til the end of the video..... Enjoy the baby goats as you wait lol.
I used a carport. It has a six foot gate on the front since this photo, and I painted the boards green. Going to finish framing all the way up this fall.
We are going to leave the back open. That is the loafing stalls. Milking is done in the front. There are walls and gates inside since this photo too. I will try to get some
This isn't goats, but here's what my sheep used to have:
A 30x40 masonry barn with two 72x32 three-sided run-in sheds attached to the side.
A view of the masonry barn with the two side barns.
The right barn
The left barn
A view of the barnyard -- when there were more sheep, that grass would all be dirt. And there used to be a fence that when down the center of it to separate the left barn from the masonry and right barn so it could be used for the rams and weaned lambs, but when my neighbor put his farm up for sale he took the fence out.
Inside the right barn. This was one of the feeders. These sheep & lambs were a group that were separated out to go to auction.
This is in the barnyard. The fence that was in the center was used to make corrals with all the gates along the front of the side barns. Great for shearing day and sorting sheep for sale. BTW, this is my 2006 ewe and her first lamb in 2008 (the ewe in my avatar).
Yeah my sheep were spoiled. Of course those three barns housed anywhere from 9-40 adult sheep plus all of their lambs.
My sheep moved to my house when my neighbor sold my farm and this is where they lived (under my deck):
Then they moved out to pasture and I didn't have anything for them so I put this together real quick. They used it for about a month.
