Back when I was planning out my Spring kidding season, we were in the midst of a long drought...did not want to build permanent kidding pens, so I put together some temporary pens made out of cattle panels and figured I would rotate the does as they kidded. Well, then we entered some weird Texas monsoon and it rained so much that my land looks like the Florida everglades. Had to scrap the temporary pens and build something more substantial that I could use to house the girls and their kids. Here is what we came up with: http://www.suspendedlaunch.com/img/farm ... alls_1.jpg http://www.suspendedlaunch.com/img/farm ... alls_2.jpg http://www.suspendedlaunch.com/img/farm ... alls_3.jpg http://www.suspendedlaunch.com/img/farm ... alls_4.jpg The shed is 8ft wide by 24ft long...it has 3 separate sections that are each 8ft by 8ft. The last one on the end has a door that opens into the buck pen so that the boys can use it as their rain and shade shelter whenever there are no does that need that section for kidding. Each section is cozy for a doe and her kids or I can divide it down the middle with a section of cattle panel to put two does in at the same time. There are wood walls on 3 sides right now (the ends and the back, long side), but the back panels are actually bolted over top of wire so that the wood can be removed in the summer to let the cool breeze in. The wire on the front is a heavy-gauge utility panel with 4inch openings. We spent two weekends...a total of about 5 days work between the hubby, myself, and a friend who came over to help on the first day when hubby had to be at work. Was exhausting to finish that fast but I LOVE my new pens. Very convenient and comfy for the goats, too!
