Actually that should not be far off the mark if Mr Goose wants to be consistent and he's worried about a bit of horse pee.
What about the oil or grease or fuel or water that could come off or out an engine that been running for a day or two Mr Goose?
I know it's a load of bollocks.....but if you want something, be consistent.
Imagine the outcry if you had to put a holding tank under a boat trailer so water wouldn't come out the back onto the road when people pull their trailers out of the boat ramp car park with the bungs out.

But back to over loaded vehicles and those who think they know best.......

Cheers Scott

Yes well Daryl I have noticed that many of the more caring ''Horsey '' people here in the west have a forward tilt on there horse floats and with the effluent tray thus positioned the waste product does not slosh around at the rear . In my use of course there may be some oil thrown around from the big end and other bearings however a capture bucket can be used .This will I hope pacify any observant gardeners or green keepers . In any case I feel that we have exhausted this topic and should move forward as they say!

While your NOT reading this Mr Goose could you post a link to those people who would make those horse floats that tilt forward with an effluent tank under?
Wouldn't the pee run out the front door instead of the back?

Cheers Scott (the bewildered)

Might as well look for Horse Huggies Ian. You will have better luck. Trust me....horse nappies exist.

Cheers Scott
