Low-Cost Housing For Goats
"My husband recently made a hoop house for my goats for about $100, using three lengths of cattle panel and a heavy-duty tarp," says Renee Wilkerson of Marion, Ohio.
  "He started by pounding four T-posts into the ground, placed parallel to each other about 84 in. apart. Then he placed a 16-ft. long, 2 by 8 wood board along each side. Then he bent a 16-ft. long cattle panel, placing the ends inside both boards.
  "He stapled and nailed the panel to the wood and used some old wire to tie the panel to the T-posts. Then he installed a second panel, tying the ends of the two panels together. He repeated with one more panel. Each panel cost $22.99.
  "The last step was to cover the panels with a heavy-duty 12 by 16-ft. tarp, which cost $19.99. I'm sure that over time wind will rip the tarp, but it can always be replaced.
  "It didn't take long to do and makes a great temporary shelter."
