15 minute goat coat was created by moggy
Feeling guilty at being caught out with the first real frost, I felt the need to make the goat a coat and pronto. I grabbed OH old work jacket, chopped the arms off, sewed up the armholes, made some ties out of the material of the sleeves and attached them to the neck and under belly.
It seems pretty practical as the coat has a fleece lining and semi windproof waterproof/breathable top bit.
Took about 15 mins to make in total, perhaps not the most fashionable, but it works

He is OK, they all got new coats because the company he works for changed the colour of their logo

For lambs we have a friend who gets children's jumpers from the op shop at about 50c each - or cardigans are even better.

Well I reckon the design was a success as this morning the coat was still in place, it had slipped backwards a couple of inches, but nothing tightening the neck straps didn't solve, she certainly seems happier this morning than yesterday.
