Duck Costume Comforts Goat

Leanne Lauricella runs the rescue group Goats of Anarchy. One of her recent rescues is a blind, underweight goat named Polly, who has other medical issues and severe anxiety. She goes into a panic when Lauricella is out of sight. They tried several things with Polly, including a Thundershirt, a swaddling coat that calms dogs. Nothing worked, until Lauricella brought home a child's Halloween costume made up to resemble a duck. When she put the costume on Polly, she immediately calmed down.

It must be the texture. Lauricella bought other costumes, and they also have a calming effect on Polly, although she loves the duck costume the best. There is more to the story, which you can read at The Dodo. -via Metafilter
