Didn't see an answer to this one, so I'll weigh in. No, there is no reason you can't have a cob shelter for goats. I've seen any number of cob barns while in England. They are very prevalent (though more and more no longer house animals as they are often converted to homes). Be aware that goats climb everything and if there is even a minute chance they can get onto the roof of the building they will. Even my boer goats (very heavily muscled goats) manage to climb. Just make sure things are either too tall (and keep items away that could be used to step up onto the roof) and/or strong enough to support the animal once it gets there. Good luck.
