Lightweight and easy to put on. I will be ordering more.

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.
