Jen, this should be stickied.
If you're up for it, could you please post something about the correct way to tie a rope halter? I don't have a rope halter myself but have used them lots in the past - one of my (many - ha!) pet peeves is improperly tied rope halters. An employee of mine was notorious for tying them wrong... one day a horse flipped out, set back and the knot slipped so the noseband was suffocating him - had I not had a knife to cut the leadrope, I have no doubt the situation could have ended very badly.
Regarding your original post - I also hate seeing horses turned out (even supervised) with rope halters so poorly adjusted. That's just asking for the horse to step through it and have a wreck.
PS - back off ladies, I laid claim to Peanut long before any of you!!!!
PPS - that picture should be the poster for this thread "properly fitted halter = happy poneh!"
