Those are good links because I think you need a bottle jug knot and a fiador knot, check out this pic...
Buckaroo Leather Horse Tack, Use, Care and Maintenance: Fiador Throat Latch-a Vaquero Tradition

But I was trying to find instructions on the length of cord and how to tie them all to make the whole fiador setup. Does that make sense?

Or you could bypass the whole fiador idea and use a throatlatch if you were in a hurry to something built until we figure it out LOL!

Lol I'm not in a super huge hurry I'll wait! It's sorta like a puzzle and it doesn't sound so intimidating because I've made quite a few rope halters so this is sorta like one in a way...And I've done Turkish knots before I like those pretty good.

Yeah the yardage would be necessary, I probably will try to make the fiador knot then mark the closest ends untie it then measure between the two marks..I'd have the knot measurement... Would a rope halter throat-latch be similar in measurements?

This is the book I am talking about by Bruce Grant, his books are kinda like the bible(s) for rawhide/leather braiders. If I remember right it has the all the right knots, if not he wrote another called Leather Braiding...but I am still looking for some good instruction on the internet, I could of swore I have come across some!

The first fiador knot is looks like a diamond knot which is the second? I've heard of the book...

In the picture/link I posted above the knot that would sit in the throatlatch in between the cheek jowls is a jug knot from what I remember than the bottom knot, the fancy one that goes around the heel of your hackamore is a fiador knot.
But then reading other links, they claim that both knots are considered a fiador knot but the bottom is also called a double hackamore knot?...now I am confused...

"Grinning" Join the crew.. I am pretty sure though that the throat knot is a diamond Fiador knot...or diamond hackamore knot... What ever suits your fancy..could be wrong but I'm pretty sure.

Would this help us any with the size thing?
How to Measure for a Rope Halter

Would this be a better example?.P.A. Farms - How to Tie a Rope Halter -The Fiador Knot


Would it be any simpler to make a double overhand knot for the joining of the throat latch then use the fiador knot as the bottom?

I'm going to practice the fiador knot now just to get the hang of it...:)

Those links look good for figuring how much you need, good find.
I also think your right about using the overhand knot like you would for making a halter.

You will have to post a picture of your work when your done!

Oh I will if I ever get it done! Where do you think a person could find the lariat rope?

Nice!!!

Usually at tack shops or auctions they sell burnt up ropes for crafts or whatever. If you can't find any I will send you some.
