I wish my goats got a barn. They get a shed. :) The barn has been taken over by the horses.

Should get finished next week. I think that I am gonna put concrete in the whole inside. It will have a feed storage room with one 8x12 stall for the time being. We only have 2 goats right now but are thinking about raising some.

Depending on where you live, you probably don't want to make the floor of the kidding area concrete unless you are going to have the barn wired for electricity. While concrete is easy to clean and disinfect, it holds cold exceptionally well and that is very hard to overcome while kidding.

My wife says I over do everything. One reason for the size of the barn is I have 3 kids and I will eventually have at least 6 show goats. Part of the barn is a concrete wash rack and a 6x8 feed storage room.
