Im looking for a nicely made goat goat for our semi disable little wether. He was suppose to be a meat/market wether but came down with puenomia and then joint ill a few weeks before the others left ( he was about 3 months ) He is fully recovered and lucky him, a nice pet, but is a little smaller than the others, his hips USED to be a little off but have now centered out and he cant use his back legs to support himself ( like when goats jump up to head butt, he cant do that ) but he can walk and running isnt too bad of problem for him. Anyways on to the acual post....... I want to make sure that he will stay nice and warm in winter so can anyone direct me to a online page or someone that makes nice heavy duty ones for a decent price. Ive already heard of the dog coats from walmart ect and the other 21 will most likely get thrift shop shirts but i want one for him that will last a long while. Thanks for any help, sampson says thanks aswell!

Pictures are included, first two are of sampson now and last two are when we wernt even sure if he was going to make it.

Tough-1 makes dog coats that work excellent for goat I have several I get mine from chicksdiscountsaddlery.com there about $20 they look very much like horse blankets and they come in awesome colors and patterns!

Forgive me for a probable dumb question, but how do you size them down for your goats? Even a yearling goat is going to be considerably smaller than a foal, let alone a baby goat!

Guess you don't know how tiny mini horses are? The coats go down to 20 inches. Bean wears their largest size.

i make ours and i use the industrial strength velcro. i bought dog coats from walmart and sized them up by measuring the length of the goat from withers to pins and cut the coat out accordingly. jeffers also has goat coats but i like making them because i can get really cool goat fabric, you have to line them i use either muslin or fleece.it also makes a great 4-h project
