Lamb & Kid Sling
Premier's extra-tough option to carry or weigh lambs or goat kids.
Key advantage is that the ewe or doe can see, hear and most importantly smell them and more readily follows. This is vital for preserving the mother/offspring bond. Less human smell on newborns reduces risk of abandoned lamb(s) and goat kid(s).
Attach a Digital Scale for weighing.
Colors may vary.
- Easy to carry handles.
- Adjustable chest support strap allows slings to be used for all sizes of lambs and goat kids.
- Strong and soft polyester mesh provides comfort during transport or weighing. To weigh them, use the Digital Scale.
- Colors may vary.
How to Use
- Place mesh under newborn's belly
- Pull handles up on both sides of the animal
- Adjust the Velcro chest strap to fit the animal

I want to like this. And I suppose for smaller kids, I do. However, once they get a bit of length on them, at about 2 weeks for my kids, it becomes a struggle to keep them from sliding out backwards. I have adjusted the strap to try to make it more secure, but it's not been very successful.

It worked great for our lambs. Only hiccup is that it's white. But a guy can work around that I guess.

The sling works as it should however the sling I received was white(I know the description says colors vary). That’s gotta be the worst possible color for this kind of application. I’ve used the sling 3 or 4 times and it’s already covered in very noticeable dirt, manure and blood stains. Not a huge deal but still disappointed.

Nice quality sling. Seems durable and holds newborn goat kids well. Was a little disappointed to receive a white sling, as it was stained after the first use. Functionality could be improved if there were D-rings added to the straps, as they are too wide to fit securely in the hook on a hand-held sling.
