    how to test the cover

    I wondered how to test the durability / strength of the cover.

    Then Bambi did it for me. A fawn out with his sister and no mother around. (see attachment)

    What if all 4 legs and gone through the cover? Oh my. Dunno what I would have done.

    They did not.

    Haha, that's great!

    If legs had gone through... you would have tested your ability with a lasso and whether or not you missed your calling as a cowhand... or had some venison to enjoy.
