    ....to build a "mini barn" for my 2 new Nigerian Dwarf doe kids. I'm stuck! I know I will keep a few babies when I breed them (in over a year from now) so I want to make sure I have enough room without breaking the bank.

    Also, my property is 3 acres. 2 of that is completely wooded. If I want to expand the goats "yard" into the woods would they kill all the trees by striping the bark? I know they'll take out all the saplings and brush but I don't want my woods all dead.

    Thanks!

    no i dont think they will hurt your trees in the woodlot.but they will clean all the under brush an weeds up in time.an they will eat some grass.you could run 20 to 30 goats on 3acs.
