We used this twice and didn't have success grafting, but it was tricky situation. The spacing for the headlock width was not ideal for our sheep. We added foam pipe insulation to get a better width and will probably end up drilling another set of holes. We also had to put a visual barrier (panel) in the headgate/middle section because our ewes can see what's going on behind them through that gap. Not good. It kept us from requiring to hold a ewe steady several times a day but the details are not great on this design.

Salesmen always like to tell you their product "PAYS FOR ITSELF". They are all full of it. Most of the time you break even, at best. This is one of the rare tools that pays for itself the first time you use it. Every lamb after that is money in the bank.

This is the second one I've purchased. Original is well over a decade old and still looks like new. Highly recommend! Saving one lamb pays for the purchase, mine has saved more than I can count. Easy to use. Fantastic for grafting and those shy first timers.

What a great deal already adopted 6 lambs on 3 ewes it has more than paid for its self! I had a few made out of wood but they would rub the ewe raw on her neck. This was good to the ewe and the lambs!!!

We had a few first time ewes that were reluctant nursers. This provided a way for the lamb to bond with the mom and also get the colostrum needed.
