    I got to thinking about the replacement edges for the prowings (as I'm going to get new ones here, pretty quick). They get $40 for a set of two pieces of heavy rubber flap that is approx. what, 1 inch thick? Well, tomorrow (later today), I'm taking one up to my local TSC (Tractor Supply Co.) to compare it to something. As I recall, this is the same type material that those heavy mats are for the inside of horse stalls. The thing you have to look for, is there are different grades of these. I KNOW they make some heavy duty ones. Even if they WERE just a bit weaker, I know they would hold up well because they are bolted so close to the edge. At the very most, we could always use a piece of thin flat stock bolted across the back side going lower for reinforcement. Do you know many sets of these things you could get out of one of those mats???

    Wow....now THAT is an extremely considerate gesture. Thank you so much even just for the OFFER. It is the thought and consideration of it. I will certainly consider it. I'm STILL going to check out this horse mat thing, though. I did some searching around the web last night and came up with a few different well known manufacturers. Some of these are revulcanized and some are made with poly-vinyl mixed in with them. Thank you, Nate.
