These baby goats have been kept warm in Britain’s storms and look more like lambs after their owners dressed them up – in woolly JUMPERS.

The cute Angora animals have been decked out in sweaters by Julieann Snook-Bevis and her husband Mark, both 40.

The couple set about collecting dozens of old jumpers from charity shops then cut them down into bespoke knitwear for their eight infant animals.

Julieann and Mark have around 50 goats in total at their farm and campsite in Holsworthy, Devon, where they breed them for their special mohair wool.

They began by using old clothing to keep premature babies warm but decided the rest of the youngsters could do with a little extra protection when the bad weather kicked in.

Mother-of-three Julieann said: “I use woollen jumpers because other materials can irritate the skin It’s really simple, I just use a pair of scissors and cut them up to fit each of the goats.

“We make sure they can go to the toilet and can walk around easily. The jumpers act as a second skin and they love wearing them.”

Julieann and Mark’s angora goats have scooped top prizes at shows and have even starred in a film called Snow White and the Huntsman.

Julieann added: “The goats have such fantastic personalities and they love playing with our children. They are fascinating, lovely animals.”
