A few months back at an auction we picked up a lot of halters, leads, saddle bags, etc. When I was cleaning them at home, I noticed that two of the lead ropes weren't the typical lead rope. They are blue (with two white stripes on each side) nylon, about 6' long each. I looked up Johnson Ideal Halter Co which was what was on the manufacture tag, but couldn't find anything. I thought these could be reins, but you tell me. Each has a small scissor clip on one end, and a conway on the other. I haven't used them for anything (I'm be afraid to use these tiny scissor clips for a lead rope, they look like they could break easily if a horse were to pull).
Anyone have any answer or theory as to what these are to be used for?
