making something for your horse to wear...

Hmm... Well, your horse isn't going to forget your scent.

But you could make him a scarf/bandana sort of thing. Whatever you make him, make sure it's not going to get hung up on something.

Is this a serious question?

I wasn't sure if it was a serious question or not.

You could wear a bandanna for several days, really get your scent on it then braid his hair and cut it up to make little ribbon strips and place it in his mane. That would be one way that he could have something of yours and it won't get hung up and you could make it look pretty.

I can't think of much that would be close to his nose and not be a hazard.

Is there any specific reason you want your horse to wear your scent??

that is a pretty good idea...no there isnt a specific reason i want my horse to wear my scent...i just thought it might b fun to be able to make something that my horse could wear. i was considering a rope halter (i no he cant wear that in the pasture b/c it could get cot on something and end very badly) but it requires a ton of rope and looks a little complicated. im just asking for fun, curious to no if anyone has any ideas, thats all. i guess i should change my question up some-is there anything u can make ur horse to wear that is easy? forget the whole scent thing and wearing it all the time...THX IN ADVANCE :)

I'm assuming you're a very young girl, around 12. Your question doesn't seem real because it doesn't make a lot of sense, to me at least. If you wish to get more serious answers to your questions you might wish to write out your words and use proper grammar. Personally, I find it quite difficult to read your post.

Our ability to smell things comes with what is called fatigue. This meanst that we are less sensitive to a substance the longer we smell it. It is usually recommended that horses don't go out into the pasture with things around their necks. They can get caught on things and be killed. If you let him out wearing something scented please make sure it is a break-away item.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

When it's cold, I typically wear a scarf to the barn, and while I was riding, I would take my scarf off and tie it around my horse's neck.
