Do you like these and would you buy them?

I have a lot of spare time in my hands at the moment so I've been learning how to tie rope halters and do fancy braids. Eventually I am going to get to fully braided bridles and mohair cinches, but for now it's just the halters.

Just wanted to gauge if there would be much interest for me to sell a couple! Not looking to sell any yet, just sussing it out :)

They are hand tied out of double braid marine rope. They have a proper fiador knot at the chin and proper double overhand/blood knots everywhere else. The fancy braiding is done using military grade paracord. The whole halter including braiding is rot/mildew/UV resistant. Soon I'll wash one to see how it goes!

So, do you like them? Would you buy one? What would you expect to pay/think is a fair price for a)a plain halter b)halter with braided nose c)halter with braided nose and Turks head over the fiador or d)halter with braided nose, Turks head above the fiador, and turks head buttons on the cheeks/tie end?

ThAnks for any input!

I can buy something very similar at my local tack store, halter with lead, for $11.00 USD

Very cute! If the price is about the same as for similar (but not as cute) in TSC I'd buy one.

They are very pretty and practical, too! I'd buy one, though I don't need another rope halter right now.

I love these! I'd so buy one. I'd probably sell them for like $15 if they come with a lead.

That black with the lime would be sooooooo awesome on my jet black boy. His current rope halter is hot pink and black and no I didn't buy it, it was a gift. You've gone one better with the sliding knot.
