Isn't it uncomfortable for camels to be hobbled using the "One Leg Rope Hobbles" method which is mentioned on http://camelphotos.com/camel_hobbles.html, and isn't there a risk of the camel falling over if they are restrained like this? Also, Could the Light Weight Hobbles be used on the camle's hind feet and fore feet in order to stop the camel from being able to move around completely, and, if this method could be used, would the camel be able to balance properly while wearing 2 sets of hobbles?

camels get very used to wearing a hobble where Im from. there are not many accidents useing hobbles unless wild camels attack at night, which then run a risk of injuring the hobbled camels. but mostly camels are never left unatended for to long. when hobbling make sure there are no other trees or bushes that the camel can tangle up in. only one hobble is needed on a front foot, dont even try to hobble all four legs. no worries.

Thanks for the information (incidentally, isn't it a problem for the camel if s/he gets an itch if 1 of their front legs is hobbled? (I'm gessing that they wouldn't be able to scratch themselves without falling over).
