    When/why do you use a goat sock? I asked a few people in our 4H and they all said they don't use them. The store was quick to sell me one and said I needed it, but I don't know when to use it.

    I just use it when my goat gets clipped, to keep her warm. At least I think you're talking about those slip sleeve thingies. They insulate heat pretty well.

    You would put them on when you want to keep them clean at shows. No reason to use them on the farm.

    I figured they would keep them cool because the material is like under armor.

    It's a pretty good insulator since it's so tight on their skin. Keep in mind I'd only use it if my goat just got clipped and it was about 55 degrees. It won't keep them warm if it's legitimately cold.
