The sheep coats that fit too large have to be cinched up in the back. I roll up an old sock and then cinch a zip tie around the base of it to hold it in place. It looks terrible. And it doesn't matter how centered the cinch is, the coat rocks off to the side anyway. I don't like how the back end of the sheep is exposed to the elements-and vegetable matter. But I tried a less extreme cinch a few days ago and the sheep got out of the coats. I noticed Sherry at Spinner's End put two or more smaller cinches around the back seam. It looks better and seems to give better coverage. I think I will give that a try the next time I have to change coats.
