(Cl. 54-79) My invention relates to certain new and useful being underneath at the throat of the lamb (see improvements in animal blankets or protective Figs. 2 and 5). _ ` means and designed particularly for use on very I young lambs. This device may therefore most aptly be called a lamb-coat. In all types of my coat it is provided at each `of its four outer corners with an elastic loop L During a certain n the blanket being of such size that when in place 5 son have been lost and it is a primary object of my invention to provide a lamb-coat of simple, ìnexpensive construction and adapted to save the lives of lambs under above described conditions. This coat is easlly put on and taken off for repeated use. In the accompanying drawing: lamb, all four legs being inserted through theirr adjacent loop. Thus the coat is actually a blan ket covering the back, sides and neck of the 10 lamb and is drawn and retained snugly in this protective position, protecting the lamb in severe Weather conditions by retaining body heat and eliminating weather penetration and possibility Fig. llamb-coat is a plan and view Fig. of the of my imof freezing moisture coming into contact with the 15 proved 2 isinterior a modification of e body. Fig. 1 showing an elastic neck band and a portion , It will be readily understood that my lamb-coat of the lining broken out to reveal the double provi es for ample freedom of the limbs and head, thickness of material. Fig. 3 is a further modification of Figs. 1 and 2, illustrating an embodiment of my invention in which the neck band is eliminated. provides warmth and keeps the lamb dry during inclement weather and protects the vital organs, 20 all absolutely necessary to preserve the lives oi’ lambs. This coat is of extremely simple and in Fig. 4 is a side view of the coat as it appears on a lamb. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the type of lambcoat shown in Fig. 2, on a lamb. Fig. 6 is a front view of the type of lamb-coat expensive construction and can be used repeat edly according to weather conditions. In a desired modified form of the device as 25 shown in Figs. 3 and 6, the coat itself is slightly longer, its front corners being extended to form shown in Fig. 3 in position, the lamb being shown tabs or lapels G intermediate which the front end in broken lines only. of the 'coat is arched or cut back inwardly, cen Referring to the drawing by reference letters, like characters designating corresponding parts trally as I-I (Fig. 3). 'I‘he hemmed e ges of this 30 cut back comprises the in the various v1ews: my lamb-coat comprises an of coat on, the hind legs of the lamb are first in approximately quadrangular laminated blanket, , serted in their respective loops of the coat, then the outer material A is preferably 10~ounce canvas or other suitable weather resisting material throat of the lamb and the left leg of the lamb 35 is inserted in the right loop L and vice-versa (see ` and B is a lining of preferably 25% wool. Both thicknesses are suitably stitched together at the edges preferably being hemmed and Fig. 6). Thus the coat is actually double breasted, as clearly shown and at the point whereV the hemmed edges of the cut backcross there may be stitched as A2 and further stitching as A3 may be made (see Figs. 1, 2 and 3). provided a friction snap S, or any other suitable 40 fastener where these crossed parts can be con d. in Fig. 1 comprises a transverse re-enforcing which it is made may be varied considerably, the 45 in an extension strap E ñxed on strip B said strips B and E comprising a collar. In the modified ding and DOH-Wind-Deneßi‘atîng gOOdS, -but the lining being of heat retaining quality preferably forward and centrally to form a half collar F the said collar being completed by connecting its ends The leg engaging loops L are preferably stitched on at the respective corners, each a complete form, Fig. 2 the blanket is gathered or puckered ’ part wool. ` ` 50 2,131,495 2 A lamb-coat comprising an outer water-proof strap and buckle, to replace the ring and snap construction shown in Fig. 1. However an objec tive of my lamb-coat is to maintain extreme material, said coat comprising further a substan tially quadrangular blanket arranged to lie on simplicity with maximum eñiciency. and cover the back and sides of an animal, an The size of these lamb-coats is a matter of choice. They are designed primarily for very young lambs and the size may be practically standardized. In any case, it must be borne in mind, that the size is such that the coat fits snugly over the 10 back and against the sides of a lamb, and with the bands L of proper elasticity there will be no undue strain on the parts affected. Because of the extreme simplicity and inexpen sive construction of my lamb-coat it is obvious that this device is practical and a necessity for sheep owners. Iclaim: covering and an inner lining of heat retaining adjustable neck band integral of the front central part of the blanket,l an elastic leg engaging loop at each corner oí the blanket, the parallel opposite edges of the blanket of a length corresponding to the distance between the front and hind legs of a lamb, the blanket extended thence forwardly in tapered form to the neck band, said band com» prising an expansible collar the upper part there of non-elastic and Comprising the reenforced transverse front end part of the blanket, the 15 remainder of the band being of elastic material.
