Lovely bits of kit, but I just can't justify them at the moment. . . . need to just about double the flock to make it worth while lol.

Until then, I use an adapted stock trailer, 7.5 foot long, by 4.5 foot wide, with angle iron holders welded to the side, which take half a dozen drop pin hurdles both sides, and various bits and bobs and the quad inside, the back can be dropped, and the weigh crate can go inside, so I just need to fit a drop gate the other end, and should be able to run the sheep through the trailer effectively.

Still want a scotpen lol.
