The New and Improved Goat Sweaters

OK.. my husband says I am getting a bit obsessed with this project LOL..  he wonders who feels better.. Me just knowing my goat babies are warmer or the goat babies ACTUALLY being warmer!  (This would strictly be a "mom thing").  


 


None the lessÂ…. the temps were dropping again last night; close to the teens was predicted.  So we closed up the big barn window with plastic and pulled the barn door almost all the way closed and I set to work on some new and improved goat sweaters. 


 


The first ones were just a dog sweater pattern that I found on-line and made a few changes to, but after making them I saw a lot more changes that I could make.  Now I feel better as they are in the barn sporting the “turtle neck” version and they are fitting a bit more snug now.  And I feel much better knowing they are a bit warmer!!    Now my brain is wondering what could I do next to this pattern to make it even better!!  One of these days I may even have a goat sweater pattern to share with you all!  


 


Here are the updated pics of the girls in their new sweaters: 


 



 



 



 


And here are the rest of my does at the hay feeder this morning..  that white you see in the front of the pic is our goat dog Daisy:
