Elastic webbing - Thick weave of elastic shock cord has replaced string net used previously. Elastic web springs back into place when ewe leaves chair reducing risk of entanglement. Webbing quickly hooks over built-in rivets for easy replacement. Included support rope can be used for heavy animals to prevent over-stretching.
Kick-plate - Prevents animal’s hind legs from getting caught in mesh.
Quick size adjustments - Easy to make side-to-side and kick-plate adjustments using finger-friendly wing bolts.
How to use:
To load: Best location is in the corner of small pen, allowing catching of animal with the least effort. Drop top of chair over gate or fence at 45° angle.
Catch sheep by head. Back sheep into chair. As back legs hit bottom crossbar, the rump (and most of the animal's weight) will fall into webbing. Do not catch rear legs in the 2 vertical chair legs. Complete process by lifting head upwards into sitting position.
To unload: With one hand, tip chair forward with sheep inside it. Allow animal to fall out onto feet. Hang onto chair or you may be chasing animal/chair combination around pen.
