Where can a person purchase good stocks, or does anyone have measurements so I could have one built. Need a set for Quarter Horses.

I was looking for one too and found this place on the internet. They run about $1,300.

I would suggest that if you are going to buy this one, that you have a weld plate (4) put in place so that it can be secured while in use. If you wanted to move it, unbolt it.

I think that you could have one built for less, or around the same price. You may want to make modifications for breeding purposes.

One thing that I feel is important and I look for in a good palpation chute is the ability to dismantle it easily and quickly if there is a wreck. When looking at that factor, I consider if I can get catches and bolts undone safely and easily in the event that there is 1,000+ lbs of horse resting on it (if a horse goes over the top of a bar for example). I strongly discourage people from contemplating purchase of a chute that is welded together "hard and fast". If there's a wreck - there's a wreck!!!

I have the sides of my chute made with hinges at BOTH ends. That way, they can be opened quickly from either end. It also helps with horses that may not want to walk straight in.(not to mention, the above mentioned wrecks in Jos' post)

I bolt the entire frame (four corners )to the weld plates. The combined weight of two horses acting up can tip or move one that is not anchored correctly.
