Animal Fashion Of The Week

A little while ago I wrote about the trend of clothing animals in human clothing, inspired by the desire to get that cute shot for social media (

Occasionally, though, there is a good(ish) reason to do it. Take Rose, an ewe from the Auckland area of New Zealand, expecting triplets and producing milk like it was going out of fashion. So pendulous were her udders that she damaged her suspensory ligaments and they were dragging on the ground.

Instead of being whipped in for surgery, her vet, Dr Sarah Clews, fitted her with a size 24J maternity bra and it seems to have done the trick. Not only did Rose give birth to three black lambs but her udder ligaments also healed sufficiently that she was able to discard her bra.     

This might catch on. I’m sure Alan Abel would have approved.
