Simple, clever device. Immobilizes adult sheep and goats by holding neck and front legs alongside each other.
Easy to carry by hand, waist belt, ATV, motorbike or horse. Safe to use. In 20 years, very few have ever broken.

I live alone and do all of my care and maintenance of my stock by myself. This Gambrel Restrainer is heaven sent for me. I have to trim hooves and deworm and inject my goats all by myself, so I use this restrainer to subdue the animal while I perform all the periodic or unscheduled care on my animals.
It's true that the animal will calm down and actually eat grass or feed while in the restraint. They WILL freak out a little bit at first, but I pat them and talk calmly to them and offer feed. It works. I can trim, inocculate, and de-worm... and anything else I need to do with very little effort other than occasionally repositioning the animal to allow me to access a different hoof or something like that.
And then what really amazed me is that I used the small one on a lamb that we had to cut (yep banding works but not every time). I was able to control that 30 pound lamb in my lap.
