At times a weak or injured equine will not be able to support its own weight to remain upright. The longer an equine is down, the greater the chance they will not be saved.
The Becker Sling is an approved large animal rescue sling to be used with a tractor, forklift, winch, or other heavy machinery. http://rescue.hastpsc.com/sling/Becker%20Sling.html
Losing an equine because we were unable to lift appropriately is never an option.
