My sister's horse has that babydoll quarter horse head, so I shouldn't be surprised that her bosal doesn't quite work for my big-headed mustang. With her hanger I couldn't even get it on his head. :) So I put it on one of my headstalls and it worked okay, but I still think it's too small.

But he posed pretty for me in the sunshine.


It was super cold yesterday though, so it wasn't long before I was running inside and sticking my hands in warm water. I thought my fingers were going to fall off!

Today it's just as cold, but also windy and no sun. I think I won't feel so guilty for not playing with the horses today.

It does look a bit small, but maybe with all your knot tying skills, you can figure out how to braid your own?

Yeah, it's a wee bit small--but what a cute picture! I understand the hands freezing off--it doesn't take long outside.

I don't feel guilty when its cold like this. Just can't do it.

I don't like how bosals cause the cheek peices of the headstall to sit so close to their eyes. I've seen some pictures of horses in them and the cheek peice is practically IN their eye! Could they still be functional if the attachment was lower?

Froglander,
I would love to try to make my own, but I think it's more complicated than it looks... I've been looking for one that will fit, but then thinking maybe I should just try riding in a halter, I don't know. I'm so indecisive sometimes...

Kara,
Yeah, that bothers me too. I think they're supposed to hang where they do. But I can see why a lot of people just use a plain leather hanger with no buckles. That could really hurt their eye if they rubbed it on something.
