    Since I'd read some good things about the Cowboy/Rope halters, I asked Chili's previous owner to bring one with her (and I'd pay for it) for Chili. She gave me one, but it had a lead rope attached to it and the only way to get it off was to cut it -which my hbby did for me. He even made a loop to attach a clipped lead rope. Problem is, THe loop is a bit heavy, so I take her halter off instead of leaving it on when I'm not there (which I've heard is a good thing to do anyway).

    Well, now, she doesn't want me to put it back on!!! It's a little tight to put on, so I imagine that's the problem, so I try to be gentle and make sure it doesn't hurt her. Now, she seems to be getting head shy all of a sudden tho and I wonder if I should switch to a halter that slips on, then buckles, so it's not so snug of a fit getting it on?

    Are you not untying it to get the rope halter on? They slip on much like a nylon halter with a buckle when you untie and retie them each time, which is the correct way to do it.

    Um, no. I don't see a place to untie it!?!?!?!?

    Oops, maybe I do see a place after all. I hope this is a forgiving mare!

    The halter unties where the average nylon halter would buckle. Should look like this:

    It's tied on the same side but the knots look different. I'll get it figured out. THANK YOU!
