A helium balloon corral?

Okay Guessers, Put on your thinking caps. Tell me what this structure is and you will win a wise saying, which I will invent myself upon receiving the winning answer.

It's a trap for pogo-sticking goats. The goats of Algodoes really like their pogo sticks, even though they're supposed to act like normal goats. The goatherders made this cage because it looks like a good obstacle for pogo sticking into and then back out, but in fact it's just a little too high and too narrow to jump out of, so the dilinquent goats get stuck in there.

I think it is either an outhouse or a podium for an auctioneer.

Don't you think it might have too many windows to be an outhouse?

Well, you have to start somewhere, don't you? And that would be a step up from just having no outhouse at all.

Or perhaps it is a bomb shelter.

Or maybe it is a smoke house for goat meat and cheese.

It's an ark.

The local patriarch has heard that Algodoes is expecting a bit of rain. What we see here is as much as he was able to build with the gopher wood on hand. As soon as more gopher trees grow, he'll keep building the ark. In case it starts raining before he get's it all built, he put the boards he had near the top, not wasting any on the bottom, because of course, the rain always falls from above the boat. Fortunately, as you can see, God has not yet closed the door of the ark, which still stands open behind on the right. Algonoah will gather two of every living goat and a few spares for a snack along the way, and then they will board the ark.

Actually, if the local patriarch hears that it's going to rain, he probably is hallucinating. And if it does rain in Algodoes, that ark is good enough to weather the most inclement of days.

The correct answer is.... A structure to put on the back of a big Green-Weenie type truck to transport goats!

I'm glad no one guessed right, as it saved me from having to make up something wise to say. For a consolation prize, however, I will be posting a picture of the patriarch of Algodoes. He doesn't have many teeth, but as far as I know, he has not been hallucinating about rain, either.
