Goat resting benches within shelters (and pallets covered with plywood within their yard) provide resting areas up off the cold damp ground. The elevated platforms keep goats clean & dry and makes them feel safe
What we need to add on to our existing barn for a milking area in rainy weather. barn with open-air loafing area. I like this because it blocks a lot of wind from entering the shelter in the winter. This would work great as night shelter for goats.
I like this barn with a chicken run attached. I imagine having stalls and pens with runout for fiber animals and birds, and milking parlor. Maybe one larger stall for cow/other livestock which connects to the larger pastures.
