- Allows you to help the ewe carry her lambs to full term.
- If prolapses are treated when small, the success rate is very high.
- Makes the ewe more comfortable and able to urinate on her own.

- We find that these harnesses will last for many years with moderate care.
How does it work? When a ewe strains, her neck drops and her back arches. This pulls the cross webbing of the harness tighter against the vulva and also pulls the retainer (if one is used) into the ewe. Most ewes soon cease to strain. Although ewes can lamb past a harness, we remove it when lambing starts.
Do not grab onto the harness as a way to catch a ewe. The buckles are designed for harness adjustment only.

This is my first year using a prolapse harness since I don't usually feed grain, but I have some fatties this year. I bought another brand first and then a couple of these as backup. These ones fit my medium sized ewe, Icelandic, much better. It's easy to put on and adjust even with a feisty sheep.

Attached easily. Working as I type.

Had to borrow one from a fellow shepherd. This is an awesome product. It works great!

It would work fine on small sheep, but I have Suffolk and it was to small for the tail and vulva, had to split the upper part with my knife so that the tail would fit in the hole and then the cross member blocked off her ass and she could poop, had to cut out the cross member section and leave a spoon at the same time. Vulva still swole up. Was very disappointed in the product.

We have few prolapses in our flock, but when they occur, this is one of the tools we use to get through the remainder of gestation. If we catch the prolapse early while it is still very small or what we call a "peekaboo" prolapse, we use this harness alone. When fitted correctly, it is comfortable for the ewe to wear but prevents the prolapse from popping out. If we don't find the prolapse before it is large (like an apple), we use a prolapse spoon in conjunction with this harness. Either way, the prolapse stays in until lambing. The one downside to using this harness is that manure can become caked between the anus and the harness. We've found that it helps to have two harnesses on-hand: one that keeps the prolapse in while the other is washed, alternating between the two. This reduces the manure issue even if the harness is only switched infrequently (like once a week). Great product!
