Description
Plastic sacks have been re-used to create a 'pekau' or lambing bag for use on a horse. The bag has two shaped pockets for a spray container for fly strike etc, and pockets for lambing aids. It includes string for tying ewes to fences when necessary to 'mother' lambs, and a deep central cavity for carrying home orphaned lambs. The handle is made from ex-army webbing.
