Hi everyone, I am hoping to get some Nigerian Dwarf goats next spring, and I am planning on having them graze in a portable electric fenced area and them putting them in a permanent shelter at night. What kind of shelter do they need while in the portable fenced area? I am planning on only getting two does to start so it wouldn't have to be big, but I am having trouble finding a shelter solution that would be easy for me to move. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

Child's plastic playhouse (Snag one at a yardsale). Small chicken coop - I have one that looks like a wooden doghouse. If I put skids on it, it would be quite easy to drag around.

Dog igloo. Calf hutch.
Thanks for the help! Those sound like great ideas. Especially the playhouse idea, I never would have thought of that. Can't wait to have goaties!
