Blocks forward vision, which prevents ram from charging
ID # 518
Product ID (SKU) # 93-SSHRBS
Doesn't impair side vision, so that ram can still eat, graze, and drink. Greatly reduces butting, charging, and aggressive behavior. Sizes for small-horned and large-horned rams available--please select.
Which size shield does your ram need? See below to determine the size needed. It refers to adult, full-grown rams. The heads of ram lambs are smaller than adults--so a size smaller than shown might work better for them.
Small--Cheviot, Finn, IceLandic, Katadin, Navajo Churro, Romanov and Shetland. Large--Border Leicester, Columbia, Corriedale, Dorper, Dorset, Hampshire, Lincoln Longwool, Montadale, Polypay, Rambouillet, Romney, Southdown, Suffolk, Targhee, Texel and Tunis.
The Ram Shield protects the animals and people from getting hurt. The shield can be adjusted to fit individuals and it comes in different sizes.
How to Use 1. Lay ram shield against the ram's face, (Premier logo at bottom, facing out). 2. Thread top straps through loops on each side of shield. 3. Fasten buckles around chin and around throat and pull straps very snug.
Cutting the shield Getting a good fit is not always easy, because every ram's head is different. A shield can be adjusted and modified within limits. The depth that you cut will depend on how wide your particular ram's head is.
Start small with your cuts, and then increase if the eyes are still blocked from the side. You want to block the forward vision, not the side vision.
