I've been thinking of getting goats all summer, figured I'd wait till spring, so I have time to learn more and build a house and enclosure. And then hubby just told me his coworker was complaining, if his 2 goats get out one more time.... so hubby said if you're serious I'll take them. I have the space, I have fencing, I have lumber. But I've only been researching for ashort while. Should their house close up like a coop? We do have coyotes locally, but all the goat houses I see on Google just have open fronts. And from what I read if I build them a playground of sorts to climb on they may be less intent on escaping? Is this true? And do they get bored so I'd have to rearrange their toys periodically? If I end up building a goat house, right now, it will only be to get them through winter, as I plan on getting a bigger building in spring to serve as a small barn.
