Shelter for Small Livestock

       It's a good idea to have some form of shelter for small livestock and the good news is you don't have to spend a lot of money building a barn! You can make a nice shelter that is budget friendly! The shelter you see above can fit up to 11 sheep/goats in it! All it consists of is: 2 12ft 4x6's, 2 2x6's, 3 cattle panels, some screws and u nails, a tarp and some zip ties! It was quick to make, probably took an hour give or take and then we just drug it out to the pasture with the tractor, but depending on the size of the one you make, you could even pull it by hand or with a vehicle. You could also attach wheels onto the shelter. This shelter is open at both ends, which works great for us. We turn the closed side to the north for wind protection and in the summer they will get a nice breeze. Super handy and you may even have everything to make one already!
