Following mlelgr’s excellent advice we took out three on the Grimm tedder today. We switched out our hothead old mare and put a 6 year old in the left slot. Everything went very well, we worked for an hour and forty-five minutes and got the field tedded and the horses found a comfort level with the new hitch. Only problem is the young mare still tends to hang back a bit–but she is slowly getting better about this—a late bloomer, I think. Thanks to all for help with this thread—a great example of the practical utility and community spirit of this forum!
