DIY Goat Stall from Wood Pallets

You all know we are on this farming journey. Well, it is not yet a profitable venture, so we try to conserve, save and reuse. Someone suggested a DIY goat stall from wood pallets. Usually wood pallets are easy enough to find and many times are even free. Gotta love free stuff! There’s a subdivision not far from us on a busy road, which we pass all the time. One house has had a pile of wood pallets there for what seems like years. My husband decided to drop buy and ask if he could have some….just a few days before the goats were due to arrive home! To our delight the man said yes and gave them to us for free! I don’t remember how many pallets my husband and son brought home but they’ve built two stalls so far and have a couple more yet to build. These photos are not the greatest since our barn is so dark but it gives you and idea of how hubby did it. It was our oldest son’s idea to have the goat stall gate swing two ways to save on building another gate.

DIY Goat Stall Gate with Wood Pallets

We just found another source for free wood pallets and we are hoping they still have some left! With the warmer weather coming this weekend (we hope!) it would be nice to get a little pasture fenced off for the goats, another stall done for the sheep and ?????

    What a great way to put this together. I hope you find all the pallets you need!

  2. That’s a great idea! We are in a new community and there are pallets being thrown away left and right!

    That’s a great idea, I can’t wait to see it when it’s finished

  4. Raijean, it is finished. The photos are backwards. The one on the left is the finished stall gate hinged and the one on the right is the “in process” one. If you look behind the left photo you can get a glimpse of the actual stall. I’ll try to get more photos when we can open the side door of the barn to let the goats out into the pasture – we cannot do that until we have their pasture fenced or the goats will be running all over the place!

    That is great that you got the pallets for free. You can make lots of things with the pallets.

  6. Yup, keep those butt butting critters penned up :D

  7. You are funny, Robin! They are mischievous critters but also sweet. Annabeth is actually coming when B calls her but quickly looses interest if B doesn’t have treat on hand! But it’s progress none the less. ;) They are learning to trust her, that’s what’s important.

  8. This is a fantastic way to reuse and safe some cash while setting up your farm. I would like to get a goat someday. Hubby wants a dog, but you can’t get goat’s milk from a puppy.

    Very true, Lucero. Goats are very cute and mischievous…..they fit right in with our animals and children! :)

    It is crazy all the things you can do with wood pallets. I need to make something one of these days – hubby can get them at work so I may as well!

  11. Pallets make all kinds of wonderful things. We run a pallet business. We burn so many pallets it’s not even funny because there are certain sizes are not resalable. I’m waiting on Del to make me an outside desk from these excess pallets. It’s started, but he has to finish it. :) He has already made a slue of things in our house out of them.

  12. Crystal, that’s neat, a desk, the fact he’s made other things for your house and that you have a pallet business. I think we will also attempt to make a pasture shelter out of pallets, if we can scrounge up enough.

    Love how you are able to reuse something instead of buying. Great job.

  14. Donna says:

    What a smart idea! I’ve always wanted goats, but my husband says, no. :)

    What a great way to upcycle old pallets!

  16. I love repurposing products. It’s cheaper and makes me feel like I’m doing something good for the earth.
