I like that! My neighbor has those! The website's ones look sturdier than my neighbors.
May see if DH will build me a couple of these in the future goat pen...as soon as the 3 big girls are tested they will move up there together and will need a shelter and I am sure the donk up there would appreciate it as well!
Those hoop shelters work very well here. I have 3 of them in my pasture.Two of them have been up for over 2 years. I did buy some really heavy duty tarps with grommets in them and I used zip ties to attach them to the panels. None of mine have anything holding them down. They are just 2 x 4 frames lying on the ground. When we have wind of any kind, they just sway. We had a storm with winds gusts of 60 mph and they never moved. I could not believe it, our carport blew away and the roof over our deck ripped off, but the shelters were fine. My goats use them for shade in the summer and rain protection in the winter.
This first picture is of the goat house - it's not pretty : :blush but it's the first hoop house we had ever built and we just used what we had laying around. We just had to add 2X4 reinforcement this past weekend to one side. We've found that for us the house can't be made out of cattle panel because there isn't enough metal to make it stiff enough - our goats pushed on it until they were able to climb it LOL!
The second picture is of the houses we made for the chickens - this is how we will build the next goat houses but without the door. The 4X4 utility panel is very strong but still light enough to drag around with little effort.
Something I use all the time to cover my barns or shades would work good on these so you would not have to replace the tarps all the time. I run a add on craigslist every few months looking for old hard sided shiming pools. You can get them most of the time for free and one 18' x 4' round pool gives you a piece of tin 4' x about 75'. You can cover a few of these with one pool. And you can't beet the price.
I had made a portable one similar to the one I posted as portable for my turkey pen. But before I got it enclosed around the pen yard to keep the little doelings out of the pen they decided they were going to climb it and instead of getting up on it they just collapsed it flat. It was fun trying to get it back into a hoop shape after they had it flattened.
