Each gate latches two ways so that the layout can change with needs. This arrangement shows both pens closed which opens the aisle from the east side of the barn to the far west side of the barn and out into the pasture. Along the right side of the aisle is an alfalfa feeder running the length of the aisle.
Here the first gate has been closed cutting off access to the aisle to the pasture but allowing the goats to roam from the east side of the barn and into the first stall. They also still have access to the alfalfa feeder at the right. You can see one of the little bucklings mad at me for shutting the gate and cutting off his access to outside.
Here both gates have been closed. The goats can still roam from the east side to the west side and into the first stall (unless you shut the pass thru.) This arrangement creates two L shaped pens with individual access to the alfalfa feeder along the right. Pretty cool huh?
And here is a pic of the silkies that my mom has been raising since they were a day old. They were getting a little too big for their britches there in the city, so Mom brought them out to the farm. Their names are Vanna White, Paisley, and Link.
