The New Goat House!!!

Oh my goodness!! I am so excited. Dave a.k.a Red Green made me a goat house.

You have to admit, it is an original. And it cost a total of 14$!!! Everybody wants to get rid of all those old satellite dishes and the farmer up the road had that feeder in the field that he wasn't using. He even brought it down for us. Then it only cost for the bolts to put it together.

Now it will need a coat of paint to stop it from rusting more, but other than that, it's perfect for a day shelter for the goats.

The weather here is so unpredictable. They can say sunshine for the next 3 days and that afternoon it will downpour. I hated leaving the goats outside while I wasn't here to bring them back inside in case it rained, but I had no choice. Now they have a place to go to eat and have a lick of salt without being in the rain.

I'm sooo excited!! Can you tell! :)



  1. Very nice! Your hubby is very handy. What color are you going to paint it? Maybe something bright?

  2. I'm not sure yet. I'm still basking in the glow of having it. lol

  3. What a samrt idea! Did you get your pic problem fixed?

  4. Great recycling, cheap too! good for summer but can you enclose it for winter or do the goats have another "house" It snows there does it?

  5. Krissy, no I still have the pic problem. Very annoying.
    Rina, they sleep in the barn at night and stay most of the time in the barn in the winter also. Yes, It does snow here.

  6. This is Lisa's hubby, There will be old barn boards placed up and down to make a wall around and provide some shelter from the wind, rain and snow.

  7. What a great idea! Would you mind if I posted it over on our a link and credit of course.

    Yet another way to provide inexpensive housing for animals...that's using your head!


  8. you are going to have to drill holes in the lip around the satellite or it will have a sheet of water running around it when it fills.....but great idea!


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
