When we bought the goats from the farmer no longer able to bend at the waist, I mentioned that if he wanted to sell his hog panels I would be more than willing to buy them. He had them stapled to his barn wall, so we agreed that if he were able to get his son to come and remove them he would call me. This week I got a call that he had them off and I could have them all for $35! We went to get them yesterday, and the goaties now have their own pen!
But this meant they also needed their own house...
Because our budget is TINY (like, non-existent), and pallets are free, we tend to use them as often as we can. I thought I might put a pictoral story below of myself and my 11 yr old son building a goat house out of free junk pallets, and a hog panel and a tarp that we already had lying around here.
