Lamb Collars
I'm often asked how I make my adorable lamb collars. I'm not sure if I am the first person to come up with the idea; but, I've been making these since the first year I started raising Babydolls. I would very much appreciate if you're reading this and decide to copy the idea or share it; please share the URL to this page and give me credit. Thank you!

Items Needed:
a ruler
5/8" grosgrain ribbon works the best
a pair of scissors
a pair of vice grips
a cord stop
Items needed.
Use the ruler to measure a piece of ribbon 18" long. This length works the best from the time the lambs are born until they leave with their new families at around 12-weeks old.
Cut the ends of the ribbon similar to how they are in the photo at the right.
Cut the ribbon.
Place a cord stop in the vice grips as seen in the photo. The vice grips allow one to make the collars without help and keep the spring closed on the cord stop which keeps the hole you'll be threading the ribbon through open.
Cord Stop & Vice Grips
Hold the two ends of the ribbon together and fold them lengthwise in half. This makes them easier to thread through the hole.
Thread them through the hold.
Remove the cord stop from the vice grips.
Finished collar.
Sonny is showing off his collar. If you notice, I've tied a knot underneath the cord stop. A newborn lamb usually gets two knots. Be sure and check the collar weekly as the lambs grow FAST. Untie the knot(s) as needed. Make the collar bigger using the cord stop. These collars will usually last until the lambs leave here. Sometimes I will have to make a new, longer one for a bigger lamb.
