Normally I never leave a halter on my horse when they're in the veld, but at the moment one of my mares are out in the veld with a halter on. She's not easy to catch and escaped from my stable paddock and since u like some of my other horses who I can approach while they're in the veld this mare must be confined first. Thankfully where they are I can see them everyday, so I can check on her. Worst part is here in SA break away halters are virtually unheard of, unless you want to call these single layer nylon ones break away, cause they always break just when youreally need them to hold! I now only buy double stiched nylon or rope halters. The mare in question though will come in on Monday to the stable paddock where. I can see her 24/7 she has a foal at foot and needs some supplements that I can'tgive her when shes with the herd. 12 horses make for one heck of a food fight!
