Simple, clever device. Restrains adult sheep and goats by holding neck and front legs alongside each other. Without the use of its front feet or the ability to raise its head, the animal is immobilized.
- For trimming hooves or tagging ears.
- For transporting individual animals on ATV’s and ATV trailers.
- To take the “fight” out of lambing and kidding females when you need to intervene and/or leave the animal to go for extra supplies. Nearly as useful as a 2nd person (but less expensive and less interesting).
Easy to carry by hand, waist belt, ATV, motorbike or horse.
- 4-1/2" neck opening
- For adult sheep and goats
- Made of nearly-indestructible polycarbonate
How to Use
- Place the gambrel over the animal's neck.
- Slide legs into footholds, one on each side.
- Guide string under neck and secure. What's the string for? Extra security when you need to restrain an animal for longer periods. Also handy for attaching the gambrel to an ATV.
Any livestock restraint may cause some degree of stress, but they do not cause pain to the sheep when used properly.

My vet was amazed when I used the large one on a ewe that had a real bad hind foot problem and I wanted to restrain her in a pen to be worked on. She laid quietly while he operated, medicated, bandaged and applied duct tape.
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.

We call them lamb hand cuffs. They work great. We move the lambs to the barn on a plastic sled. The lamb hand cuffs keep the lambs from getting up and falling off the sled. Nearly all of the 350 lambs that are born every year here will wear them for a bit.
