I am planning to build a 36'x36' pen for goats, and a second for sheep. How many animals could I keep in there with them staying happy and content. I have seen numbers anywhere from 15sqft to 50sqft. They will have a 12'x10' foot barn area, and then a 12'x16' covered area to relax under. I plan to let them out to graze on my land on the weekends when I am home, otherwise I will be feeding them hay and feed, I might partition the pen so that I can rotate them. Not sure though. Any advice? I am also thinking about doing electric fencing for their pens, as well as around the entire property. I am thinking of doing a 6 wire, with the first three wires being 6" apart, then 8", then 10". then 12". I am thinking we will be planning on 10 goats. One buck and the rest does. The sheep probably about the same. My husband wants Myotonic goats, I want one or two nubians, and then we have friends and family who we told that they can bring one goat out haha. As for the sheep, I really want border leicester, painted desert, or blue faced leicester; In order of my preference. We plan to have a two rows of rabbit cages at the back of the barn, probably two or three feet out, and then the entire length of the barn(24'). How does this sound? Is this enough room for 10 animals? All offspring will be sold or butchered so we don't plan on housing any more than that.
