    I loaned one a while back to "equislover". You could contact her and see if she is still using it. She hasn't let me know if it's working for her horse or not so give her a try.

    Mine are all out 24/7 with run-ins.

    In a drizzle or rain they run to the sheds, but for a real thunder/lightening storm, they stand outside butts to the driving rain. Some just keep on eating!

    We use a small arena harrow, not a big, churning farm harrow. It breaks up the manure. Do it right before a rain for better dispersal.
