In the last one even if add a black pawn on " f5 " the result is the same - but solution is forced and not so nice :
Here is another with Queens and there is zugzwang too:
white to play and win

Mrguy888, you took the right direction from the beginning - post full solution when decide .
Nobody posts solution for #296 so i will post what i think it can be:
First white play 1.Kc2 and if black doesn't play 1...h5 the solution is like Nswwsn and Caielo showed in #299 and #300 .
If black play 1...h5 then solution follows Mrguy888's line in #297 :
oh yes ;-)
Smiley has to say is the solution correct.
And here is another puzzle :
white to play and draw
