These are soft with nice colors but will NOT fit Boer goat kids, the necks are too small for the Boer kids thicker neck

I believe the jackets save lives of newborn lambs. I don't want to lose anymore lambs to freezing. I loved mine and it looked so darn cute too. The mother did not reject the lamb because he was wearing it. It was easy to get on by myself.

Bought 2 of these just in time for a set a small twins to use them. They were very easy to put on, they stayed in place, and the ewe (a very flighty border cheviot) had no trouble or issues with her lambs wearing coats. My only worry was if I would be able to get them washed fast enough to have them ready for the next set of lambs born! Unseasonably cold here and lots of wind, lambs were shivering so they wore the coats their first 24 hours. Now I need to get some spares so I always have a clean set available!

Lambing during January and February often means extremely cold and windy conditions. We lamb on pasture and these coats have been a life saver. Lambs wearing the coats grow faster and do better than without. The only problem occurs in years like this one where we flip-flop from day to day from rain to cold & snow. While the coats dry quickly, in these conditions I find myself needing to change the coats often or the lambs get cold. I solve this problem by putting a plastic coat on under the fleece coat. Wish Premier still carried the plastic (trash bag material) coats. . .

These covers are nice, the design is good but the colors caused repeated rejection of lambs by not only their mothers, but by the flock causing stampedes to get away from the poor lambs wearing them. In the past I have made my own covers and never had an issue with the ewes rejecting a lamb. So I used the covers I bought for patterns and made my own covers with pale yellow and light green baby color fleece and the problem was solved. The pattern is perfect, fleece works so well for lambs but they need to come in pale colors before I stop making my own and buy them again.

We have trouble with the ewes rejecting their lambs after we have put the coats on them. When the covers are removed they go back to being a happy family. I'm not sure what the problem is but we have tried them numerous times and with different ewes.

Often lambing in cold to bitter temperatures we have found these lamb coats to aid in keeping new borns warm, thereby reducing stress to the newbie. We have found that when lambs are warm they tend to get up and nurse more during the 1st 24 hours rather than hunker down in the straw to try to stay warm (w/o the coats). These coats are relatively easy to put on, wear well, wash well and in most cases do not interfere with ewe/lamb bonding. Have even used them in grafting lambs by taking the coat of the natural lamb off and putting it on the 'graft'. If you lamb in colder climes, I would recommend these lamb coats. With these, in most cases, we have been able to say good bye to heat lamps... a definite plus. The cons are few but I would like to see some reinforcing material around the leg slits, particularly the rear leg slits as they sometimes tear, particularly on larger lambs. Other things to watch for when using this or any lamb coat or cover is to reach up underneath to make sure lambs' bellies are full which is sometimes obscured by the coat. Overall, we have found these coats to be quite useful.

We have tried many lamb jackets before, always having problems with lambs getting them off, or them getting tangled up in them. These are absolutely top class. The polar fleece fabric really keeps the lambs warm, and it has short pile so it does not get caught on anything. Reminds me of the neoprene wet suits I've seen While we are in Florida, we do have freezing temperatures at times lambing between December & March. And inevitably the ewes pick the coldest nights to lamb. These coats are wonderful for keeping the body heat, and they wash nicely too. This product is top class!

I loved these covers so much last year that I am ordering more this year! They are so easy to put on and never once did I have a lamb "get twisted up" in one, and they didn't come off. They wash very nicely too! My ewes never minded the little jackets on their newborns!
