Buy Goat Diapers



I was really hoping this was for real. My daughter wants to take her goat to our local pet parade in October, and I thought this would be ideal for the walk. That way all she had to do is empty it in the dumpster at the end. That would save me from having to walk behind her picking up poop along the way. ?Other than that, it would never be used. lol

There is a farm in New Hampshire that has goat Yoga classes 4-5 days a week with a waiting list of people wanting to take the class. I saw your April 1st post for this year and it made me think of it. I found it and the link is below.


Your BEST bet, given that goats typically have hard pellets that you can shake out of the diaper, is to use a diaper cover with a prefold or other absorbency tucked inside it.


We specialize in making incontinence products for dogs and cats. But occasionally, we receive requests to make diapers for goats. As animal lovers ourselves, we are happy to customize our diaper design for goats with incontinence issues.


I haven't had any bottle babies, but did find that adult-sized diapers worked very well on an adult Shetland ewe when I had to transport her in a finicky friend's truck! Still have a package of 'em minus one....


Oh, Lucky Nickel, your lady is the best and most tolerant of ladies! What a job! Tee hee. I think you were very cute with your walking difficulty and of course Marshmallow is very cute (for a sheep). My lady is very glad she doesn't have to deal with sticky goatie poo flying around the house! xxxx oooo


I use Men's Medium Depends for my Southdown wethers. Bob wears Red "Flash" underpants on top! We have a 3 month old - Guinness - who is now getting used to his diapers. Bob is1 and still comes in at night to hang out with us. He also goes on walks, car rides, and community evens. Guinness was riding in the cart at the Agway on Saturday. He was wearing dog diapers but they are getting too small. I'm going to see about large "pull ups".I haven't had much success with covering the winkie and the bum bum simultaneously.


Oh my, I have a little Kiko doeling in diapers right now! Abigail the Adorable is in the newborn size and I cut down the back of the diaper to allow for her tail. I then use sports tape to secure it all firmly so she can't wiggle the tail vent down. I was so pleased with myself that I had her fuzzy rear covered! She promptly did her little squat and wizzed a huge puddle on my kitchen floor. Nothing like being humbled by a newborn kid with a pint sized bladder! lolNow after 3 weeks, I have mastered the art of kid diapering. I am using the across-the-lap method you so delightfully described. Love the pics!


We have a six-week old lamb that the mother rejected and we have been keeping her inside, bottle-feeding her and putting diapers on her so she could wander around the house. We brought some grain and hay in from outside but she seems to chew on everything but the food we give her. We've tried to put food in her mouth and mixing it with milk to get her to eat it to no avail. How did you start weening your lambs?


Thank you for explanation of putting on a nappy on a lamb. Many years I have cleaned up messes and sent the lambs out of the house. This year we got caught out with fierce storms and very cold, windy weather so I allowed the lamb to stay indoors. I read about the diapers and thought it was an idea to try. At first Dottie acted like she was hurt, then she found if she jumped up and down the nappy came off. But I have persisted and boy did it make life easier.


I never get to make anything girly on purpose, so when my co-worker Molly was expecting a girl, this was my chance. My colleague found out that Molly likes baby goats, so I set out to make a diaper cake (never attempted before) with a baby goat motif. After a little research, I layered diapers in a circle in cake pans around a cardboard tube, and secured each layer with fishing wire. This was based on a post I found online. There is a slight, very slight possibility I may have been too cheap (cue the gasp) to invest in ribbon, so I ironed some colorful fabric with the rough edges folded in to make a ribbon, and hot glued a band around each layer.


Goats are particular and picky with their life. They like things a certain way and a new stimulus to that normal life can create an uncomfortable and unhappy goat. A diaper being used can create that unbalance and it is good to know exactly how to apply one.


But before we actually dive into putting one on it is best to look at the options that there are for goat diapers. There can be multiple ways to accomplish what you want and it can be up to owner discretion as to which you use.


The first option would be to just purchase some goat diapers. These however are a little bit more expensive because of their formatting for the specific use of a goat with a tail hole and better functionality to the anatomy of the goat. If you are looking for a cheaper way to get the same effect through a normal baby diaper can work just as well.


Another option that can be used is reusable diapers that may be a little bit more work, but will still contain the mess and be comfortable for your goat. The goat may enjoy a fabric better than a normal diaper and it will feel better for them. Plus your conscience can be clear by not disposing of diaper after diaper. You can be nature-friendly while taking care of your goat.


Now that you know some of the options of diapers to use we can go over what it may look like to put one of these on. I will be going through how to put a normal baby diaper onto a goat seeing as it covers all parameters for the application of the other diapers.


The first step will be to make sure to get the right size of diaper. The normal size would be a size 3 for a newborn goat that is average size. Then for larger goats of course can use larger sizes accordingly. But it might be a guess-and-check system if it is your first time. But that size 3 is a good place to start.


Once the hole is cut the diaper can be put fully onto the goat. This can be done the easiest by placing the goat upside down either in your lap or in front of you and taking its back hind legs in one hand, holding it up to place the diaper underneath making sure the velcro is in the front to be brought and attached to the back. Make sure to get the tail through the hole as you do this. Then place the front of the diaper over the pelvic area and snugly attach the diaper. It may be best to have another person to help with this whole process, but can be done alone if there is no one handy to help.


It is important to note that the goat will probably not enjoy the diaper regardless of what you do, especially at first. It may take a while for the goat to get used to the diaper. It is important to note that goats prefer to not be inhibited by anything when doing their business.


A size 3 diaper is a safe bet for most newborn baby goats. For males, consider purchasing size 4 instead so they will be comfortable. You will need to size up as your goat grows, so stock up on diapers through size 5 or 6, depending on how long you plan on diapering your goat(s).


Make sure you are watching out stories to catch a ton of adorable videos of them. Now that they are outside and able to play more we are getting a ton of good photos and videos of them. They love running through the yard and doing their little happy jumps. It is one of our favorite things about having goats and it is just the cutest things to watch!


We also wanted to share with you a while back we asked you to guess what size diapers the baby goats were wearing. When we first brought them home, they were about two weeks old and they were in a size one diaper. They were so tiny and fit into newborn clothes! When they were about five weeks they moved into a size two diaper and 3-6 month clothing. The reason why we put onesies or pajamas on them is to help keep the diaper on. Otherwise the diaper will fall off when they are jumping and running around in the house.


I hope you all love the baby goats names and following along with them as they grow up! They right now are going to be living in our one side yard, not with the other goats. Once they get a little bit bigger then we will move them into the barnyard with the bigger goats. We will be having more updates on them throughout the weeks on Instagram so make sure you are following us @livesweet and @thesweetfluff !


The solution to those bigger messes, more destruction, and a sassy teenage goat, is to put it outside. This would be fine except for the fact that this goat has learned a lot of its life skills indoors, and not in the pasture with other goats.


Furthermore, your goat has come to know you as a part of its herd, most likely considers you its mother. So reintroducing that goat to the outdoors, fencing, and other goats could be a real challenge.


Keeping goats in the house can lead to health problems for the goat. You see, goats are ruminants, and they need to eat nearly all day long. They walk around, eat until their rumens are full, then they go lay down. While they relax in the sun, they burp up their cud and chew everything a second time. Finally, they send their cud back down to their second stomach.


Moving, in general, is a part of being a goat. Remember, they walk all day, except when they lay down to chew their cud. I once refused to sell goats to a woman who planned to keep them in a dog crate on her back porch.


Regular disposable diapers are not designed to be worn while swimming. When submerged, these diapers will become water logged leaving them unable to absorb additional liquids and falling off your baby with the extra water weight.


Some people choose to use disposable diapers on their newborn because of the extra work in cleaning cloth diapers so frequently. However, for some newborns, cloth diapers can actually fit better. Since they are able to adjust more specifically around the legs, it can mean fewer leaks and wet clothing. 041b061a72
