Lamb Coats

Why use lamb coats?

Good Shepherd Lamb coats are invaluable at lambing time in cold climates. They are warm, soft and comfortable for the lamb(s), do not restrict movement and are fluid resistant. The chest piece covers the lamb’s chest and insulates it from the damp and coldness of the ground and prevents chilling of the lamb. 

Good Shepherd Lamb coats do not interfere with maternal bonding. In fact Good Shepherd Lamb coats can encourage bonding. If a ewe is trying to reject one of her lambs, take the coat off of the ‘favored’ lamb, turn it inside out and put it on the lamb trying to be rejected. The ewe will think that both lambs are now her favorite.
