Completely off topic, I always want to read your screen name as "gin n joose" in my best Snoop impression.

Talking

This is the headstall I settled on... an Oxbow from Stateline tack.

I also found a Rafter T headstall with matching spur straps that I want to buy for Salty.

For future reference, when I inquire about purchasing more tack, the correct answer is,"the tack you have is he just fine. You don't need new (insert it here)."

Thatís pretty blingy, but I like it! I was thinking you should look at Caps ;). @COWCHICK77 might have had the same thought too when she asked how much money you wanted to spent. Lol. Iím sure what she had to sell you herself would have been nice though!

@Knave , my husband thinks it's ridiculous! I think old Wild Card Salty would look very fancy! I'm not sure he would agree.

I think it will look fancy on his white color! I have a kind of fancy one on Bones too and I like it. My husband teased me too.

My littlest has one with green on it and flowers for Zeus. So, maybe I am not the best to tone you down. Lol

I LIKE it Cedar. Trigger's is a little like that, with the rawhide weaving... and the day I bought it, I wasn't looking for him a headstall - or anything. I went to Paul Taylor's in Aubrey, TX for... stirrups? For a flip saddle? I think? and to stock up on spare parts for repair, and I see it hanging all by itself among the 100s, I kid you not, 100s, of headstalls. I flip the tag... suck wind. At Paul Taylors, which sells at wholesale prices, it was 70 bucks.

I walked away.

Kept gravitating back to it. The leather felt sooooo nice. It smelled good too... I put it back.

Came back to it... put it back.

It came home with me. I have never admitted to Hubs what I paid for it, nor will I. I know that's not a lot of money for some folks, but you gotta remember, we trail ride. We don't show, we don't rodeo, we don't do jack with our horses but hang out in the pasture with them, brush them, and take them camping. And at the time, I was still about half-scared to really ride him much. Logically, that headstall should have sat and gathered dust because being honest, I'd have never believed we'd come around to 'getting' one another.

A 14.00 split ear would have done us just fine at the time, but nooooo. that rawhide.... and then I could imagine how he'd look in it... and it was all over with.

That is really pretty. Good choice! My husband knows that if I go out shopping for myself I will usually come home with little or nothing. If I go out shopping for the dogs or the horse it is going to be expensive!

I hear you on the smell and feel of good leather I have a real hard time resisting as well... Then I remember that my current bridle gets moldy within a week (heck, even my rubber boots got moldy in the tack room ), and I just walk away... But a nice beta bridle?
