Great idea! Emergency fire halters.
 
I simply love this. For emergency responders who are likely not horse people and would take forever to put on a regular halter and so likely just let the horse loose.

I like the idea. Implementing it though, I can see issues.

What do you see?

The only problem I see is the low melthing point of the nylon.. The halters and leads should possibly be leather instead maybe?

HollyBubbles 03-13-2013 04:15 AM

Oh, and maybe it would be better to store them on a pole with one end open so you can just rip them off the pole on your way to the horses instead of having to undo the halters to get them off??

I like the idea though

I could see a problem with fit. Some horses are huge and a standard halter won't fit and some horses and ponies have teeny heads.

However it's a fantastic idea - I've forwarded the article to my BO.

I think it is a good idea, but with being new I agree they could improve, but dang I give them an A+ for effort and idea!
