    I plan on getting started with 4-h goats and I was wondering if any of these shelters would be good? 2cf5d61d-dc02-413d-bc2b-bc3873e4a604_1.5b0eb44652453e597321a44e5c8da078.jpeg f42e3307-0d3a-4707-8657-762e64420382_1.96e07470d15b82987289b91a4942dd58.jpeg 1110345.jpeg what shelters should I use

    I have not raised goats but I think they would chew that to bits.

    Goats will trash and destroy those greenhouses pretty quickly.

    Depending on your location goats can do okay with a 3 sided shelter. It needs to be made of something sturdy as goats eat, chew, rub, and generally work anything over that's in their area.

    If you get snow a fully enclosed building would be best. I have seen people use calf hutches for goats, but goats do like to push and butt each other around. The lowest on the totem pole may get chased out. So housing needs to be adequate to provide for goats being goats.
