Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

When I went out for chores this morning and to check on the week old triplets it was 10 below zero with a wind chill of -33. Those little ones were jumping around like it was summer!  In the other pen there was a single doeling freshly arrived , full belly, dried off with her mom.  I have the heat lamp on for her and she seems to be doing all right. I did give her a sweater as well.

My sweater is made from the sleeve of an adult wool sweater. I cut two holes for the front legs. Old wool sweaters are readily available at thrift shops.

What a great mom! We had kids get frostbitten ears at that temperature even when we were there with heat lamps and blow dryers. And that sweater is just too cute!!

Is that a dog sweater?  If not, could you use a dog sweater?  I have a toy poodle and its just a little hard to get the front legs in! I was going to pick some sweater up when they go on clearance, it would be easier than to try to make one out of socks ect
