    Even though my horses have in and out paddocks were they could get around 200 feet away from the fire until I come, a fire still worries me to DEATH. So it just so happens that my shop is beside my barn, and it is tin do it cannot burn like wood. I store all my emergency stuff in there, extra feed, halters, first aid kits, horse blankets, anything like that. I also have a feild on the other side of my property that I can put them in. I have been planning for a fire for years ( not that I WANT it to happen, just being prepared) But I will definitely add this to the list :)

    I think maybe it's just food for thought, to adapt as you all see fit.

    To me a regular halter with usual style clips is not helpful, as the firefighters are not going to remove the massive glove to clip the little clip.

    I think leather might be a better idea. And I think on the stall doors might be better - but then I question this too. In a smoke filled barn, who much groping around would need to be done to find them. Maybe a stand of something like this at each entrance, and then on each door, would be best.

    For me personally, my horse is out 24/7, has not been in yet, but would be in several weather - so just a few nights every few years. If he is in, they would open his door and he would be out into dry paddock, and then out into large field.
    I don't worry about a fire risk with my horse.

    Then again I don't know about where y'all are but ALL emergency responders in my area are trained on how to handle/evacuate farm animals and livestock so hopefully with a halter like in the OP or something similar, they would know how to use it...or like in the firefighter crash course I went through they had a class on how to improvise halters and such with random supplies
