    We don't even have a farm, just an urban house with a small yard, and finding spray nozzles that a) work well and b) no one HATES is WAY MORE TROUBLE than it should be. As in, we haven't found one...

    I could see this being nice if you're a single person who likes going to shows or trail riding with a group, but still want your own space. I enjoy doing things with others but I do usually need some...
