I didn't even think about mechanical hackamore. I have one, I have one like above, and a short shank one that is leather and fleece across the nose. I use the one like above on Cat. Tried the leather one, with the shorter shanks, but I need to lube up the leather more so it will wrap around her nose better, just been too lazy, since I can't ride her. I'll get it out and lube it up, soften up the leather, and put it on Lil. Sometime we can't think for ourselves, when the solution is looking you in the face! Lol
TG, glad the chickens showed up. Hopefully, more will show up, when they calm down a bit. But, 2 is better than none!
