Talking Rope halters for sale!

I've been making rope halters for Lacey and people have been tell me I should sell them so I figured I see how much interest there is.
I can dye the rope pretty much any color you want. I'm currently experimenting with various tie dye patterns (stripes, random colorfullness, splotches etc) but I haven't finished any of those yet so no pictures yet.

I can custom size them, I'll just need your horses' face measurements.

I think $12 (plus shipping, I have the priority boxes so shipping is $4.95 but you'll get your halter in 2 business days) a halter is fair. I can do it in a thicker already colored rope but that rope is significantly more expensive so it will be $15 for a halter made with that rope.

I can also probably add rings for reins to be attached if anyone would like that. I've never tried it but it shouldn't be too difficult.

I can also add knots on the noseband if anyone wants that.

Pictures!
First the thinner rope, I dyed this one green myself:







Thicker already dyed rope (only comes in red and blue) The end looks ratty in the last picture only because I made it fast and didn't have the time to melt the end, your's will always be nice on the end. =)







Lacey really likes her thinner rope halter. She even sticks her head into it for me where she doesn't do that for any of her other nylon or thicker rope halters.

AWHH! I have always wanted a rope halter for my mare. A red one. ( black and red are our show colors! ) Probably the thicker one. What would I have to measure on her face if I was to get one?

Awesome! =)

What size normal halter does she wear? Since she's about the same size as Lacey I can probably just size it to Lacey and it'll probably fit her just fine. If you do want to measure her face I just need a nose measurement,and a measurement from where the noseband will sit (right below her cheek bones)... Here's a picture of what I mean (excuse my kindergarten "painting" skillz hahahaha)...

I can try! I'm not sure how it'll turn out though because when I posted this thread I hadn't tried to tie dye the rope yet and when I tried a purple and pink one (it'll probably worked better with more contrast-y colors, like lime green and turquoise) it turned out to be pretty light. >.< I can dye some rope with green and turquoise then send you a pm of the color it turns out to be if you'd like and then you can decide whether it's what you want or not... =)
