    Mod is pretty simple, see pics

    The SBPro ridgeline mod is pretty straightforward. At each end, I stitched two strips of grosgrain onto both sides of the bug net, making sure that the lower edges overlapped w/ the nylon. Then I used my camp stove to heat up a thin screwdriver and made a clean, small hole (soldering iron tip on hand was too thin). Loop the ridgeline around your suspension and you're good to go.

    It works fairly well, I have it a bit tight in the second pic as I was messing around with it while shooting. There's still too much bug netting to deal with though, IMO.

    Pics attached.

    It is a very alert, active sheep, with a stylish, lively carriage.
