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!
