Dangit, GH... Dangit. The leather one with a nameplate I think I need. Just in case I forget her name, you know.

On another note, I just had Dairy Queen. =]

She wears a halter when she needs too, for farrier, vet, catching her usually with big fluffy fuzzys (they rub too). Just not extended periods of time because I think the rough edges of nylon and cheaper leather are what rubs her the wrong way. My good leather bridle doesn't bother her, but I can't really afford a $100 dollar plus halter at the moment. She has a weird head, she's suppose to be a 15.2 hh quarter horse cross, but she's got closer to a cob in the nose size and horse over the poll. Makes all of them kind of funny.

Would love to have a nice leather halter with name plate for showing next year. Oh well guess I just have to stick to collecting saddle pads, and a few other items.

A girl can never have too many shoes, so it must figure that a horse can never have too many halters!

I think you may have something there, DA! I like the way you think.

I will post pictures of Gracie in her new halter when I get it. =P

I hear you guys on the halters...a few weeks ago, I bought a leather halter for a horse I don't even own!! He's my schoolie and I simply could not have him borrowing a halter from another horse...that had the other horse's name on it!! Turns out he is always breaking his halters, and he broke the one I bought him too. He has a wild vengeance against throat clips, apparently.

I am trying to convince myself not to buy him another one with a throat buckle instead of a clip!!!

I really love this one...but alas, it has a throat clip.

I switched to all padded leather halters 2 years ago and just love them. I always feel so "fancy" when I put one on a horse. Of course there are a few nylon stragglers around that I use every now and then.

This link was posted on my FB news feed, so if anybody like the rope halter style, this looks like a good deal.
