Just wanting to get a sampling of thoughts on hobbles.
My recent Oct. Column in Western Mule was on hobbles, a few of the different types, some uses for them, etc. and Boy O has the response been interesting. Seems that west of Mississippi they're a great tool and that east of Big Muddy they're torture device that should be outlawed.
Prior to moving to the west coast I never used them. Now I seem to be collecting all the various flavors (just got a set of Mormom Hobbles - now these are interesting - I need to have a good mule teach me how to use them!)
So what are your thoughts? Have you used them?
