From the picture on your avatar, your clyde and my gelding (who is a clyde cross) have very similarly shaped heads - not all that extra long, but very, very wide, particularly between the eyes. Claymore also has large jowls, so every halter I tried was poorly fitting.
You know, that's a good point, the "ugly knots" are far easier to adjust....maybe I should just stick with them in the future!
