Well, finally, I made it out during daylight hours with a camera. I’ve been aiming to document the new shelters I’ve been building hoop houses for shelter: one for hay and two for the goats.
I can’tcurrently find the site where I found the original pictures Here’s the place where I got the particular idea, but I can tell you I got the general idea from a Hobby Farms issue we had hanging around.
The plan is simple, fairly affordable and easy to build. Each shelter ends up being 16′ long with a maximum height of about 9′ and a width of 10′. Each side requires five t-posts and a single 16′. The shelters will be covered by tarps, most likely a billboard tarp. Here’s a side view with an old tarp on for the visual idea:
Finally, the boys. About a month ago, we added another Nubian buck, Shaeffer. Genetically, he and our spring buck are related. Shaeffer’s sire is the grand-sire of Pete.
This gives us some help with balancing breeding, but a single line that is a good milk line.
Maybe later I can get a few pics of the does soon.
Solo Deo Gloria,
