I live down in the south east portion of Arizona USA. In the high desert where it gets cold in the winter with a bit of snow and not really so hot in the summer.

I have four ND goats (my first ever) and I am worried about them getting cold. The opening to their barn is out of the wind, they have straw and hay and a tank to get behind when they want to snuggle (do goats snuggle?) and get warm.

I do not have electricity to the barn yet thus there is no heater in this small building that cannot be closed up. It was 20 degrees last night and I kept waking up worrying about the goats. They do have nice thick coats already? will that help. Any advice would be appreciated.
