Hobbled as an Adjective[edit]

It seems to me that term "hobbled" in its common usage as an adjective in English is not captured by the definitions provided. People will often refer to people as being "hobbled" in some area, meaning something like "Prevented from performing well" or "Having the quality one's performance artificially limited." I don't feel qualified to submit the new definition in the proper format, but I wanted to point out the possible omission. Thanks. Ascottwhite 19:20, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

hobbled shade[edit]

In shopping for a roman shade to be installed on a wood door with long cental glass inset, I found the reference to a hobbled shade. Using the hobbled horse definition, it may refer to the way the shade is mounted on the door to prevent the shade from flying too far from the door; or does it refer to the construction of the shade that is drawn up vertically to stack in folds loosely bound on the back of the fabric? 67.10.123.231 15:40, 2 September 2013 (UTC)DHShaver
