Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit
this page. I would also like to tell you a little about our operation.
I purchased my
first miniature horse in 1996. She was an adorable little paint about 4 months old.
She wore a halter that "almost" fit. Therefore, I started my quest to
find a halter that would fit my baby.
I looked at the
local farm stores and found pony halters - they were way too big. Then I went to
tack and specialty shops. I found an adult halter that would have fit her mother, had I
owned her. But to my dismay, I could not find a halter that would work for a
weanling. I finally run across a fellow who would make them special for me but I did keep
looking for other suppliers, needless to say why. I found that although the Amish
community was very polite and made halters I still wasn't satisfied as they had only a few
colors to choose from - I wanted more of a variety of product and color.
So, I found a
machine and nylon supplier and I decided to try on my own. Since I knew how to sew,
I was confident that I could do at least as well as all the people whose products I had
rejected. And I was right! I made my first halter, and my second before I
finally completed some sizes I was satisfied with.
Then I branched
out to my horse friends - they like my halters too. One of my best friends had
Llamas and wondered if I could make something that would work on them. I did - I now
have six sizes of llama halters. Then another friend had a zebra, then a
reindeer, then a donkey and then a goat. Also, one of my best friends has a large pony
that she could not cannot keep a halter on, until now. I also have a
friend with Arabians with delicate muzzles, I have them well fitted now too.
So you can see -
this business has gone from alpacas to zebras. If you can measure it, I can make a
halter for it. Thanks for taking the time to read "our story" and hope you
enjoy some of our extra photos - they were just too cute to toss out.
