I think you have a good design. I think that canvas is a good idea. I'm not sure what kind of cloth would be best for the mesh.

Carpe Diem!

I think Feed Rite sells them. As a kid I remember seeing on on a work horse that was made of stout leather with a lot of holes punched in near the bottom. I remember the bottom was quite stiff with softer leather that went around the face.

^^ I tried making on before of just canvas with holes punched in, but I could tell that wouldn't work as it wanted to cling to her nostrils anyway when she breathed in. Possibly some sort of VERY stiff leather/nylon would work though.

I was thinking like nylon mesh that you'd find in the camping section. I used a double layer of onion sack mesh...Probably will be the second second thing to "go".

I'm not too worried about anything happening, as I leave her tied when I have it on, and only feed her when I'm around.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again
