SIR DALTON, THE KING OF ALL and other ranch goingson.

I thought I had enough halters to last for the rest of my life!   But then I tried to find a nice, not chewed, leather halter around here for Dalton.

Now, you’d think he would wear a horse-sized halter since he does have, well, he is a mustang after all and they have those larger heads… so I just figured that one of Finn’s leather halters would fit him… or maybe one of my older show halters from my Morgan show days.

But alas, Dalton is a Cobb.  Who knew?!  Finn’s halters were too big.  My show Morgan halters were too worn… so I decided to get Dalton a new halter of his own.  And, since I love nice leather halters (breakable), I ordered his halter just a few days ago, and it arrived already!

I’m very impressed with this company (Tack Shack of Ocala).  I had never purchased from them previously and the halter is beautiful and very well made.

The halter is beautiful and very well made. Triple stitching and very soft, lovely harness leather.  (


Here he is… surveying his landscape (and helping me with weed abatement).

I totally should NOT have gotten him a new halter since he destroyed my hat yesterday, but clearly, I’m a pushover.

Here is the King, helping me with weed abatement and surveying his kingdom.

This photo was taken in the moments before he destroyed my hat and pulled the hose into his paddock and ate it.


I don’t think he liked that I was giggling as I took this photo!

He was a little peeved that I was giggling as I took this photo… but the nameplate fits him for sure.

YOU CAN GET ONE, TOO, with anything you want printed on it – (NO AFFILIATION)

I showed Dalton’s new halter to Lorelei, who has Annie, and she is going to get one for Annie.  Her nameplate will be “Princess Annie”.

You can put whatever you’d like on the plate and I think you can use up to three rows.  I only used one row.

Anyway, I have no affiliation with these folks, I just thought they were very professional, the halter is of very fine quality and the name plate is FUN.  Also, they shipped really fast!

I have no affiliation but I do think this is a terrific quality halter, triple stitching, fine harness leather, well oiled and a fun nameplate with very fast shipping!

    Pretty halter and I prefer the track style halters over those with an adjustable chin strap.

    Thanks for pointing that out… I guess it came that way and I didn’t notice. I don’t use the snaps.
    I will switch it around!

    Hello, Safety Sally here,
    The Halter is beautiful, but I wish the snap faced outward instead of into the horse’s skin.
    If it does need to pop, it could cut the horse when it opens.
    Just a quirk of mine.
    I suppose if it opened outward, and they rubbed their head on something unusual, it could get caught.
    Life is full of these kinds of dilemmas. Sigh!
