Hi, all!

Recently I've discovered that Participle Clause can be used as Conditional, e.g. Treated gently, they can be used for years or something similar...
I am wondering whether we can use present participle in Conditional clause(First Conditional in particular):
Treating them gently, you will be able to make use of them....

    You can certainly use "Treating them gently" to modify "you" in this statement. It would function much like a conditional statement: Treating them gently, you will find they respond well. = If you treat them gently, you will find they respond well.
