BFF's new halter

Sometimes when I get stuck on one project, it's best to take a break and do something entirely different.  Tiffany specifically customized my Scarlett resin to be tack friendly, so a draft mare halter seemed like an appropriate diversion.
Well, that was fun.  Now I guess I ought to get back to that saddle!

  3. I Love it!

    Do happen to know if the halter can be black or does it always has to be white?

    If it has to be white do you know if I could make one from grosgrain?

    Thank you and again, I love the halter and horse.

  4. Hi Devon. I am really not an expert on draft horse tack, but I think white is the standard color for Belgians and Percherons. I've seen Shires and Clydesdales shown in dark brown or black tack, but typically that's a bridle and surcingle rather than just a halter. If it's a fun shelf halter, it really doesn't matter. If you plan to use it in the showring, you should do a Google image search.

    And FYI--leather is SO much easier to use than grosgrain ribbon. For real. I know it's also more expensive and needs to be mail ordered, but still... It really is a LOT more user friendly!

  5. Thanks! I have tons of black leather and some natural leather but I don't have any white lace. At least the horse I would make it for is a clydsedale so I just make black one.

    Anyway, Thanks!
