There's just aLOTof reasons to have bells on your goats...and sheep, for that matter.Here are just a few to think about:1. Bells will let you know whats going on with your animals while you are doing other things around the farm.2. Put the loudest bell on your buck, and you will be more aware of breeding activity.3. Bells which are loud enough can awaken you at night to predators.4. Bells are a good predator deterrent, especially if they are loud, many predators will leave with noise.5. Goats get used to the sound and tinkling of bells, and they have a herd-calming effect to let everyone know "all is well".6. Since time immemorial, bells have been used to locate herds on pasture or range.7. You can call your animals in by ringing a bell and then feeding them. They'll listen for the bell and you can save your vocal chords.8. You'll know if your goats get out and into your vegetable garden, hopefully before it's all gone.9. Our bells just plain look good. They're not your average feed store bell.10. The peaceful melodic ring of real brass bells is relaxing and comforting even for the goatherd or shepherd. They don't "clang", they ring true musical notes.
The bells we offer are solid brass. They never rust, and are of the highest quality and literally are a lifetime purchase. We offer primarily two types. The loudest are the Swiss tuned-in-harmony open-bottom bells. Their sound will travel melodiously across the fields, and are recommended for predator control. They have a crystal clear ring, and have been used in the Alps on goats, sheep and cattle. We offer several sizes. To connect to a collar, slide the collar through the opening at the top. The design is from 1878, in Switzerland. Our other bells are round, closed Sleigh Bells. They are authentic 1800's design, are softer in tone and ring as clear and true in tone as sleigh bells should on a silvery, snowy night. For looks and sound, none of these bells can be beat. Over the next few days, we'll post pictures of these bells!
