The most effective and gentle "antidote" for a prolapsed ewe.
Used to hold a vaginal prolapse in long enough to get the ewe to her lambing date.
The soft red nylon webbing minimizes risk of tissue damage around the udder and vulva (a much too frequent result of homemade twine efforts).
Used in conjunction with a prolapse retainer.
- 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.
- The neck, back, and leg straps each adjust to fit ewes of all sizes.
- 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.
- The neck, back and leg straps each adjust to fit ewes of all sizes
- Snap buckles enable easy attachment, removal and adjustment
- Made from 1" and 2" nylon strapping
- Approximate adjustment sizes:
- Neck, 36"
- Neck to hips, 26"
- Hip around leg, 45"
Do not grab onto the harness as a way to catch a ewe. The buckles are designed for harness adjustment only.

These are much more effective in keeping prolapses in place. I use them with the traditional spoons.

With our ewes being very heavy with triplets, the harness came in handy to hold her together. Easy to put on and adjust. Best used when ewe is shorn. One last year lambed past the harness alive. Beats stitches.

Worked like a charm! Easy to put on and adjust. Only drawbacks are keeping it clean, manure got under one of the pieces of the harness and being there at lambing time to get it off could be challenging. My ewe lambed in daytime, so it worked out ok for me. However, the instructions say the ewe can lamb with it on.

Had a ewe trying to prolapse for a week before lambing. Harness worked great at holding everything in and slid out of the way when she did lamb. I was planning on taking it off when if I saw her lambing but she beat me to it. She is a smaller framed ewe and the harness did slide around a bit till I figured out the correct adjustments. But this is first time using. Highly recommend. We used this by itself with no spoon needed.

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.
