    Default Need fleece halter tubes for weanling halter + cutesie baby pics

    My silly little kiddo is, as of Tuesday, being led to and from the pasture.

    She's doing a great job but the 1st ad 2nd lessons left a leather halter burn on her face.
    She tries to go a bit quick and ends up side passing most of the way (though this morning she walked straight!) resulting in a rub on the right side of her face between her jaw and chin.

    I covered a bunch of the halter with some of my extra bits of gel pad (cut to size) and covered/stuck them on with mole skin which does the trick but I'd rather have fuzzy halter tubes.

    I just did a search for "fleece padded weanling halter" but came up short.

    The baby halters I use are thin leather but they are not buffed and finished so I guess they can be a bit scratchy.

    I suppose I could make my own but I'd rather just purchase and be done with it.

    what do you guys do??

    Here's my little pookie pie at 2 months of age soakin up the love from my friend's son.

    she gets lots of smoochy nose zerbertz.

    Those cheaper leather halters that are put together with rivets instead of stitching are really harsh and very likely to produce a burn, especially when they are shedding out that baby fuzz.

    I would skip the fuzzy stuff, order a Quillin and leave the old one off of her when you aren't leading.

    I hate to sew, but I would get some soft fleece material and ask at the craft store about fabric glue. There are some really good ones out there.

    That picture of her getting kisses from your friend's son is adorable. What a cutie!

    we are past the bum rope. I used that the first two months.
    Her problem is the other direction!
    I have a neck loop (old stirrup leather) I put on her but she's getting too big for me to hold all of these things and I can't hold her back with the neck loop anymore anyway.

    She only wears the halter when we lead her--she's super easy to catch and halter there's no need for us to ever leave one on her.

    Those halters that I have are just the cheapo 8 buck halters from our local feed store.
    Correct that they are more harsh than the finished leather halter--but they are also 8 bucks and she's grown out of a halter every month thus far in her life.

    I was needing to buy a Quillin for the inspection in Sept so I'll go take a peek at them later today.

    I still would like baby fuzzies. errrr--I don't want to put forth effort to make them myself. boooo

    Have you tried tack shops that cater to minis or ponies?

    Also a craft store might be a good bet.

    You could get a pony-sized fleece halter tube set and cut them to the size you need...
