    We are totally new to goats and before getting any, we are thinking of designs for a goat shed and would like some input about features you wish you had included when you built for first goat shed.
    Thanks. [​IMG]

    A stall..
    For birthing, after birthing, putting one away when they are being naughty (aka my billy in rut and not giving my nanny a break...)
    And some kind of manger on the wall so the dont throw their hay everwhere

    A feed trough, for when it rains. A heat lamp enclosed in a wooden box to protect it. A hook to hold a bucket. A light.
