So, we have been chatting on a goat forum on Facebook, and someone is looking for barn ideas for her goats. So, here are mine! Keeping in mind that we re-use, re-cycle, and go as cheap as possible and I didn’t clean up today (it’s been a long week), this is what we have.
This here is the end view. Remember, we only have a half acre, so every bit of space counts. See how the doe barn is in front, and then to the left and set back we join up to the buck pen? I haven’t had any bad milk from it, and we have a wall between the pens.
Here is the long side view with the front for perspective. We have a lot of doorways.
This is the milking parlor. It has a door to our yard and a double door to the goat yard that locks in such a way as children cannot easily enter. I have a shelf along the wall, and the cabinet is my medicine keeper and other supplies.
