It's missing the little "stick" piece that slides into the holes. Maybe it's called a tongue?

Yep...thats what missing. Its the tongue!

My silly boy managed to break it off the buckle while being inside a stall all by himself! How did he do that? The rest of the halter is in perfect shape.

So i had to do some looking around for a double bar buckle. I found one. Its been shipped out. so hopefully this size will work.

He might have been rubbing against something, and it caught and snapped?

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

You're missing the real answer, which is "Horse Magic." That's the mysterious power by which a horse in a padded room wrapped in bubble wrap with enya playing the background could still somehow manage to pull a shoe and then stab themselves with the nails right where the saddle rests.
