We discuss some peculiarities of the conduction electron motion in the vicinity of domain walls which lead to an anisotropy of the magnetoresistance. We also discuss the case of single crystals of ErRh 4B 4 and HoMo 6S 8 where magnetoresistance with the same qualitative feautures has been observed.
