I may have shot myself in the foot. My cattle have been a bit sluggish getting through the coral portion of this accessory. The movement through the car seems reasonable however.
So I purchased some post-war type cattle with the fingers on the bottom. Not sure if they are actually post-war originals or reproductions. Bottom line is they hardly move at all.
I have checked the four cap nuts holding the floor of the coral in place and they are snug. I experimented loosening them slightly, but that made things worse.
I'm now thinking maybe the mohair bottoms on the newer cattle that came with the set are better. If so, maybe I could simply cut the fingers off the latest cows I purchased and stick some mohair to the bottoms.
Question is, where can I get the correct mohair ?
