PostSubject: Question for anyone who buys Halters! :D   Sun Jul 19, 2009 3:46 pm

I'm sure all of us do at some point buy halters...

anyways!
I was wondering about those "new" Rainbow colored ones.
Kasper came with one but its faded badly
and I was going to buy him a new one. (I did not know he had one when I was looking for one... haha... I thought it would look good on his coloring)
I was talking to his owner and she said that they do fade and fast.
and I was wondering if anybody else had/has one and if it has faded...

can't help you there. I don't like and don't buy nylon halters.. only leather.. although I do have one nylon with a leather crown piece.. only use this to lead in and out of the barn.. never any other time and it's never left on him..

Do you mean the Accent halters with the graduating color? We've had great success with them - they have a different kind of clasp that horses don't seem to be able to break easily and they don't seem to lose their color either.

Kind of OT but Wissy just curious on your reason(s) for leather vs nylon?

we have one for Thunder but I haven't put the extra holes he needs in it yet. The only thing I can tell you is that after a year in the tack locker and not seeing the light of day, it hasn't faded one bit! :doglaugh.gif:

I've seen someone have one of those on their horse... and you're right, it did fade fast. You probably only will get 3 months wear out of it before all the colours fade to a pastel that blends together, lol!

D-Cutch, I'm an all leather girl too ;) ooh, that sounds naughty!
I never leave an all nylon or rope halter on my horse unattended. I think the crown piece should always be leather if you're leaving it on them- an all nylon halter is strong enough to pick up a car and will not break unlike leather, and it's a recipe for a huge vet bill or disaster if the horse gets caught on something....

see, I don't have that problem... just last fall I went though atleast 3 different nylon halters with sandy and some were heavy duty. she kept breaking them somehow.
one she riped all the holes out on the crown.
