No-Sew Kid Coats

Brr, it's been cold these past couple of weeks. Our winter storms this year have been about 3 weeks later than usual. I plan for my goats to kid in March so that the worst of the winter storms and cold are behind us, but it might be close this year, the does are due beginning March 12.

How do you keep tiny goat kids warm when the weather is so very cold outside? I use kid coats, made from sweatpants from the thrift store. No sewing required, just scissors.

Because I'm still working on my laptop and trying/hoping to get it back to "working well" status - it's not going well, unfortunately - I'm sharing a prior post today.

Here is how I made 6 no-sew kid coats for $6:

  1. Oh how cute!!!! Goats are too darn cute period, but put a little jacket on them......the cuteness factor went up a notch! Do the goats seem to like them?

    Thank you, Kelly, and well, the goats didn't complain. :-)

  3. This is such a great idea that I have not heard of before. Pinning this to remind me to do it next year.
    Thank you for your inspiration!
    (See, if you hadn't re-shared it, my little goats wouldn't have benefited. So glad you did.)
