What size halter does Kenzie wear? A boarded just gave me a purple halter that didn't fit her mare, but it fits Henny perfectly. Would you want it? I think I also have a purple cotton lead rope.

XD That thing is ratty, isn't it? I had to cut the end of it off because it unraveled too. I've been planning to get her a halter, just wasn't sure what color to use for her or what type I should get. I like the way Nylon halters look better, but rope halters are much more useful for training and such...not to mention more adjustable.

I was also trying to avoid using any of the fund for a halter since it wasn't completely necessary yet, and I was going to just use some of my paycheck, but I've had a couple of unexpected costs lately and haven't had any money to spare.


Kenzie is sort of between halter sizes right now, too, which makes things difficult. If I bought a rope halter though I'm sure I could get it to work. With a nylon halter, the weanling halters are too small (not super tight, but enough that I don't really want to put one on her... and the yearling halters at least at TSC anyways, are HUGE. The blue one she's wearing is the only one I can find that sort of fits because its an abnormally big weanling halter. Obviously though, its been in use for a LONG time. Haha.

Kayella, is the halter a rope halter? If we figure out a time for you to come see Kenzie I might just take you up on that and we can see if it fits :P I'm going to do a little internet shopping to see if I can find a halter with a sizing chart that doesnt go by weight in the mean time. There has to be something out there!

So we'll definitely go with purple...that works well since Sour's color is pink (ofcourse xD). What do you guys think- rope or nylon?

Lol I have the EXACT same problem fitting Henny for a halter. He's starting to go down a few notches on the weanling halters, but the yearling halters are MASSIVE and nearly fall off his face. It's a nylon halter and it's in fairly good shape. If you go to my picture thread and look at the ones of where he got a bath, that would be the halter.

Its a cute halter! Halter companies really need to start making an 'in between' size though. Theres no way, unless Kenzie gets a huge growth spurt, that she's going to fit those yearling halters any time soon, but I hate to buy her a pretty snug weanling halter then have her head grow just a liiittle bit and me not be able to use it anymore! I'm not sure what I'm going to do at that point xD there's still the idea of making my own halter, but I'm seriously bad at it unfortunately. Lol!

I found one place that makes custom halter sizes at no extra cost though :O check this out. 1/4" Yacht Braid Rope Halters by Sunset Halters shipping would be about $9 for just a halter, and the halters are anywhere from $16 for diamond braid to $18 for yacht braid so its not unreasonable. That's about what I would be paying for a nylon halter at TSC. Their leads are pretty expensive though so I might just see if I can get away with 'mix and matching' one of their halters with a $10 lead from TSC... shhhh.

What do you guys think? They only have normal purple in Yacht and I'm not familiar with that kind of rope at all, but they have some cute choices in diamond braid to, as well as 'add on' wrapped nosebands for $3-9 which might be cute.

Henny's lime green rope halter is from Sunset Halters! I got the yearling size and it fits him great. I thiiiink it was the yacht rope, but not positive. I did get his lead from a different compan that was a lot cheaper. Halfcircleranch.com I believe, and it's also great quality. There's only the slightest bit color difference but I don't mind.

Ok, even more reason to buy one from them! I LOVE Henny's green rope halter. Now to decide what what rope width, and which type. If I do get diamond braid, I might go with the pink and purple weave, or maybe turquoise... how do you think that color would look on her?

I must admit it. I'm a sucker for bright colors.

I think turquoise would look great on her! It really pops on darker colored horses.

Ok guys, I'm ordering a 'violet' (purple) yacht Rope Halter, yearling sized from Sunset Halters, with a plain wrapped noseband- but what color should the noseband be? It can be up to three colors. Look up their website for the color choices. I'm money ordering so it will take longer than usual to get it, but it shouldn't take too long :) I'm just going to get a normal lead rope at TSC though. They have purple.
