I have 5 goats in a 15x25 area. At most I would keep 6 and would actually prefer 4. My goats are locked up at night. If we have bad winter conditions I will also keep the door closed. I have 4 small hay racks. If you are going to lock them up, you want plenty of space for them to eat and get away from each other. You also don't want overcrowding. So that 8 ft per animal is very reasonable.
