need shelter ideas to keep my goats warm during winter.
The easiest and cheapest is to make a hoop house out of a 16' cattle panel and a tarp. If you have some 2 X 4's laying around you can make a frame, attach the cattle panel so it is in a half circle and then stand it up. Might want to add a steel post or 4 for added stability or drill holes in the 2X4 and add anchors if you get a lot of wind. Drape the tarp over it and wire.need shelter ideas to keep my goats warm during winter.
I used this method...3rd option is pallets. With this one you can either use screws to put 4 pallets together to make a 3-sided house, then cover with tin or a tarp or you can use 2X4's to make it 1 pallet deep, 2 or 3 pallets wide. Use 2X4's to stabilize the roof, cover with tin or tarp, add bedding, and you've got a shelter.
You can if you want to. I have found that old carpet tacked up with nails on the inside makes for some really good insulation.
