We have 2.5 acres that we purchased a year and a half ago (it's about 2 miles from our house), and we built a barn for our horses...then along came Gabby - and she needs some goat accomodations. Here is our barn (new stall not painted, yet): We have a few options (that we can think of) and would like input from people with some experience.... 1) We have this modified childrens' playhouse. The playhouse measures 4'x4' square, and there is now a ramp with rungs she could use to get in (she has arthritis, so she can't jump in or out). I have used it to raise my chicks in, but they are grown and now living in a 50'x50' chicken paradise... using this would require a lot of dis-assembly (the run is attatched to the playhouse) as it's in a seperate area from the horses, and I don't think she wants to be seperated from the "herd"...such as it is. 2) I saw someone who made an nice shelter with palletts...it was simple and very effective...but not beautiful unless we did a lot of creative things...and I'm not very creative! It would end up being down at the end of the barn by the palamino - which is far away from her favorite stall at the end (unpainted) close to her BFF's turnout area. I can't put anything unattractive down there as that is what people first see of our riding academy, so it needs to look pretty nice. 3) The space between the unpainted stall and the washrack (about 3.5' and as wide as she needed) be closed in (partially) and filled with fluffy shavings...giving me a table to work on, Gabby some space close to her food, water, and a fan in summer. I just don't know if she'll like being there. Her preference is Stanley's stall (unpainted) and if all the horses are in and she can't go in a stall, she will then excavate a space for herself in front of that stall or the middle stall. With all of your goat experience, what do you think??? What would be best received by a very picky goat???
