Odd Goat Apparel
Lots of people ask about the plastic chains we have around our goats' necks. After our old goat Molly suffered a horrible neck injury when her flat dog collar got hung up on something, we switched to these rather unattractive, but very practical and much safer, breakaway collars. The chain links are tied in front with a bit of binder twine and the excess dangles free, providing a handy goat-catching 'leash'. They are strong enough to lead even recalcitrant goats but if the goat gets the collar hooked on something solid, the plastic links will snap.
