Lamb and Kid Jackets For Sale
Lambing and Kidding during the winter months can be challenging, particularly for the newborns.
A couple of hours after birth, lambs/kids may have difficulty keeping warm and may become hypothermic if there have been problems acquiring colostrum, if it's been particularly cold, or if born as a twin or triplet.
At ActiveLife Farm, we use these cozy jackets for our newborn winter lambs if they need a little extra help keeping warm.
Our homemade washable jackets are easy to use, they are made of fleece with a waterproof covering, and two sets of ties ensure that the lamb/kid stays well wrapped and comfortable (no bunching or slipping).
The jacket works wonderfully, maintaining body temperature and shielding the lamb/kid from wind, snow, and rain.
(Note: be sure to dry the lamb/kid before donning the jacket, however if the lamb/kid is beginning to shiver, it's a good idea to use the jacket as soon as possible).
A 15" jacket length has proven ideal for 8 -12 lbs lambs, but they are suitable for larger and smaller weights as well (as shown in the images below).
The main thing is to provide the wee ones with warmth when they need it most.
Lamb/kid jackets available at $20 apiece.
