I wrote an article recently about keeping goats in suburban yards: https://www.permablitz.net/articles/dairy-goats-the-key-to-sustainable-abundance-in-the-suburbs/

For a strawyard for two or three goats, you only need around 6x6m/20x20', but you'll need to bring food to them (the yard can also be designed to have trees next to it to provide some food).
 
I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
