Winter plan or thought tested and working so far...

Discussion in 'Goat Frenzy' started by jdgray716, Jan 8, 2010.

  1. I have thought about how to help my thinner coated goats and younger goats stay warm. Well I went and got some children or JR waterproof vests and jackets and cut the sleeves shorter and so far they are staying on the goats I have tested on for two days. I will tell you how the others do once I have had a few days test with them.

    My sister used to used old down or waterproof vests that she would put on "upside down" so the snaps went down the spine. worked for her!

    I know what you mean on taxes...they are a pain..... :sigh:
     
  8. Yea, they did not like it at first but I tell you, they sure did one the shakes went away. Now it's like nothing to them to have it on.


    Taxes would have been easier but every year I just take it down to the old H&R block. But little did I realize there is much that had not been done that could have been to better me so this year I am doing it. FUN FUN
