Some halters I made this weekend. Buy the rope and make em for half-price and they fit better than the store-bought ones. I probably make about half of my riding and shoeing gear. Shoeing boxes, stands, reins, headstalls, saddle strings, hoof picks, tools, martingales, rowels, whatever. Anybody can do it

Amazin, how do you make you hoof picks?? Those run away at my house and I'm sick of buying them.

Yeah mine get lost too so that's why I make em. Same way with halters. They get left at customers barns.

You can do several different styles. The one I use now was made from an old gate latch and I just modified it. But usually make them from old horseshoes. Helps to have a forge or cutting torch, make the metal easier to shape. But you can do it cold. Just cut a shoe in half and bang out the shape you want. Then take an angle grinder and sharpen the point however you want.

Hoof picks are so easy to lose. Sometimes I paint mine bright orange or put bright vet-wrap on them

I've made lead lines and lunge lines from bailing twine, very sturdy for stallions. I took 9 pieces of orange bailing twine and made three seperate braids then braided the three braides together. Its for SURE not going to break. Then I attached a clip on one end and knotted the other. Do it all the time. You always have bailing twine laying around!

I swear it looks like old telephone spiral cord on the nose piece in the first pic. Is it?
If not, what exactly is it that you used?

You know, I have been thinking about buying myself a mig welder for my birthday to fix stuff around the farm and to make trinkets with (I know... look out folks... woman with a welder in her hands )

Do you know if a mig welder can attach small things to old horse shoes?

I am so interested.. my horse barely fits into his rope halter now and I'm looking to find (or make!) one that fits.

Do you follow a certain template? I have no boyscout knot tying experience haha
