Wow.. uncalled for. I did notice he has a winter coat by the way, however, that does not change the fact that it's on too tight. Thank you ErickaLynn, I agree with *at least* two fingers. You said you were not getting the same results, I gave you a reason.
Although it's whatever you want to do in the end, I wouldn't go for the longer shank in number one. While a hackmore is not in their mouth, the leverage is still quite strong. I would prefer to see a longer shanked hackmore like that in western where you don't have the constant (or almost constant) contact as seen in english.
