These lightweight and economical coats are great for old llamas who need a little extra insulation on cold days. Wide velcro fastening in the front, two straps cross underneath and buckle at the hip. The coats have been treated with a water-repellent spray, but that may not be sufficient to stay dry in a heavy snow. (We keep the old guys in the barn on those days) They are sized for skinny old llamas who weigh 300 lbs. or less. Please call or email for larger or smaller size availability. Flat shipping rates for US and International will be partially refunded if the actual shipping is significantly less. But wait: Does your llama even need a coat? The fact is, most llamas do not need to wear a coat. Llama wool is naturally very insulating, and a blanket tends to compress their wool, which reduces its insulating properties. Shelter from the wind and snow, good bedding, and good hay are most important in cold weather for keeping llamas warm. Eating forages generates heat through the digestion of long fibers of hay. Feeding free choice hay during extremely cold weather will help your llamas stay warm. (Alfalfa is excellent for older llamas.) If your llama is old and thin, or was shorn late in the season and hasn't grown enough wool, then a blanket is a great idea. Lightweight blankets won't compress the llama's own coat, and add a layer to trap warm air.
