Lol, I know how that is. I went out to see my horse on satureday and his halter was off. So I had to look all around his 2 acre pen. Any how I finally found it. It was all intact and all and not near any trees so I have no idea how he got it off, I put it back one him to do his hair and he did not fight at all so I figure he is broke enough that I no longer need to keep it on him except for riding and walking and well you know.
