        i use sheep bells as well, and i have two rows of 6 on each ankle. they're a little heavy, but they sound good. those really big sleigh bells have a good sound, too.

                    I wear sheep mostly but have worn all different types . my favorite set i've ever worn is a pair of double row sheep with a row of hawk on the top thing almost completly covered my calf but it sounded great

                      how many bells

                      Personally I use 8 cow bells on each leg. They are heavy but my father and brother both have 8 on each leg so I follow there example. Plus they make a nice sound. My brother paints his white and then paints a design on each bell which looks real cool close up but from far away or dancin you don't notice it that much. But they still look real cool.

                        My favorite bells were the big silver round bells. I've since have lost those and now I use small brass plated bells. I have 16 on each side...

                          Size 9 Chrome sheep bells, gotta take out those cheap clappers and hang some big ole nuts in em first though..

                          Randy Paskemin will be wearing some soon as soon as I hook him up with his set next time I see him on the trail.

                          (if you see him, tell him his chrome bells are ready)

                            Yeah, i use rather large sheep bells, 8 on each side. They get a lil heavy sometimes, and they kind of droop down over my goat anklets when i dance too hard... anyone else have this problem?

                              Brass cast engraved bells in 3 different sizes

                              12 small - 1"
                              16 medium - 1 1/4"
                              5 large - 1 7/8"

                              I wear a harness and ankle get up. It's heavy (fluid up and watch out for cramps) and leaves nasty bruises on the top of your feet if you don't pad them well enough.

                              That said they look great, are loud as heck and have beautiful tone!
