If it stays here long enough, it's going to get dressed up.
That said, it should come as no surprise that two of my four Springamathing horses are now sporting some fancy new head gear.
Because Eleven Eleven has so much natural bling, I felt he needed an extra special halter. This has all the usual details (two buckle crown, three buckle chin, rolled throatlatch) plus a tapered noseband, crownpiece and cheek straps. The halter also features seventeen domed conchos from Rio Rondo and two cast buckles by the World of Model Horse Collecting.
Technically Rumspringa's bridle isn't new. He borrowed it from my Dozen Roses resin. Still, he's looking pretty fancy!
Note to all the tackmakers and performance showers--the Stone Saddlebred and Dozen Roses can share a bridle. Their noseband,browband and throatlatch measurements are almost identical. The Stone horse is about a quarter inch longer around the head, but that's well within most bridle's adjustablity.
