I've never had an issue pulling way more hairs than that at a time with any of the horses I've pulled... with a youngster it may be best to start slow though. Getting the job done quicker seems to tick the horses off less. I know that they SHOULD willingly stand for as long as it takes, but we all know how that goes...
