    Wintec outer screws

    I just changed the gullet on my Wintec and the screw seemed too small for the hole. Then I noticed that there was a 'nut', which was loose and had fallen out of the hole.

    Info on Pallards Pride - TB Stallion

    I have an old picture of Pallards Pride as a two year old when he was being broken but not sure how to post it as I'm new to this - hope it loads. The breeder kept him with two shire mares for many years (Duffy and Lavender - I think) both sadly passed away now. He also had many visiting...
