I'm in the same boat as LaurieP. Our horses have every need/pain/quirk addressed and the only things we ask from them is to behave and work under saddle and to occasionally withstand being a bit uncomfortable for the sake of beauty. Not a big deal. And frankly I found the no hands required restraints to be genius. Wished I had thought of a clamp and bungi before!
Yes I am aboard that ship! Here all these years I've been letting my hand cramp while trying to twitch a horse long enough to get a shot in it, let alone shorten its mane so that the REAL torture of standing still forever while tiny little braids get twisted into its neck can go quicker. It's not JUST for beauty. Although I do prefer a short, tidy mane (cut or pulled) to a long one anyday. Always have, even when I was a kid just dreaming of owning my own horse. The clamp thing definitely went to the top 5 twitches in my book.
Where am I and what am I doing in this handbasket?
