We are the experts in designing and producing rugs for animals with over 50 years experience. Originally just catering to horse and calves we are now expanding our range to also produce goat coats. The warmth provided from an AniMac Goat Coat protects your animal from the cold and wet, reduces shivering, helps with weight gain and also keeps them cleaner.
WHY USE GOAT COATS?
Often referred to as goat coats or goat jackets, these simple and affordable items can make significant differences in the health of goats. A goat coat is a covering to keep a domestic goat warm and dry. The warmth provided from an AniMac reduces shivering, and protects your animal from the cold and wet, whether housed inside or outdoors.

These simple and affordable items can make a significant difference in the health of your animal. Here are seven reasons you may wish to use a goat coat:
1. During particularly cold weather and long periods of cold temperatures.
2. If your goat has recently been shorn.

4. If your goat is sick and having trouble maintaining proper body temperature.
5. Stop them from scratching themselves.
