Henry’s Blanket

Last week I put together a blanket to fit my Henry/Fjord model. He also ended up getting a matching halter because, even though it’s been 2 years already, (yikes) I haven’t forgotten about the “halters for everyone!” project. I’m just… super slow.

Anyway.

I tried several new things with this blanket, mainly the thickness of the binding and lack of top stitching.

The straps are a new style for me too, along with the keepers in the front. Little details can make such a huge difference I think…

Extra shot, cause this mold with his big nose is so cute โค

Once upon a time I started a western show halter…

… then completely forgot about it. I found this buried in the chaos of my tack supplies. When did I start working on this?? Why did I abandon it?

Well, after sitting forgotten for who knows how many years, it’s finished now.

Now it can live happily ever after with Zippo. ๐Ÿ˜›

For fun, I thought I would dig out my first attempt at a western show halter (made in 2009) and compare it to this one.

Two things I remember struggling with were tongue buckles and skiving lace. Both have gotten a lot easier to do over the years, and that’s encouraging!

Soo… this week has been rough. :/ But I’ve been making more halters every day after work, sinceย I’m apparently in one of my halter-making-moods. (they’re easy and fun to make, what can I say?)

There are more reflective halters:

Break-away halters:

A padded halter and a couple striped ones too:

The blue striped one is the one that started all this. I got distracted looking up tack ideas for my new Andalusian mare and stumbled across a photo of one in a pretty, blue-striped halter.

I couldn’t re-create it exactly, but this is still pretty close.

The padded halter looks ok on the horse…

But I think I need to re-work some things on it still.

In addition to all the halters, samples of my new fabric patterns arrived in the mail. I wasted no time in turning them into saddle pads.

They’re so TACKY, hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜€

My Etsy shop will be stocked with most (not all) of these items soon, so keep an eye out if you’re interested. ๐Ÿ™‚
