Lightness

Joseph isn't sure about this whole collar thing.  Neither am I, to be honest.  I'm not sure how it's supposed to fit.  I think it might be too long.  The other two look tiny but I might try them on him just to be sure.  I think they might fit Bob and Pedro, but not the horses.  I will definitely be playing more with it all tomorrow.
 

Two good boys waiting.  Do you see infinity?  Is it coincidence or ... ?

Ice, weeds, glorious sunlight, me and my horse.

Happies.

I see the future.  One day I shall be taller thanks to his grace and generosity.

I see past, present, and future.  I see my smart, kind, creative, beautiful daughter beside me.

Keechy,

Thank you! That is a much better page than any of the others I've looked at so far.

You want to put a bit of pressure on the collar and then you should just be able to slip your flat hand in the bottom. It does look a bit long, but it is close enough that a collar pad would probably make it work.

When you get to the point of actually working, soak the face of the collar in hot water just before putting it on then go out and work in it. The collar will mold itself to his shoulders for a custom fit.

If you ever need to buy new collars (or harness), get in touch, I know the name of an Amish guy in Iowa who makes great harness at a great price.

Lovely pictures, it looks like a fun day.

PS - that collar looks a bit long and narrow. It may be that way from hanging too long. You can adjust them out and up a bit by putting the pointy end on the ground and gently pushing down on the wide end, sort of squashing it back up and out. That's the technical term:)
