These are dangerous awful halters for alpacas. We have raised alpacas for over 12 years. I was thrilled to see jeffers finally offering an alpaca halter until we used them. The band is soft nylon and it collapses on the alpacas nose when you lead. ALPACAS ONLY breathe thru their nose. So this is not only a dangerous halter it is also frightening to the animal and very bad to use for any kind of training or on the young.. Beware until jeffers figures out that alpacas need rigid nylon to protect their airway!!
"HORRIBLE and UNSAFE FOR ALPACAS"
The material is too thin and allows it to crush the alpacas airway. I have been breeding for 15 years this is the worst example of a halter for alpacas I have ever seen! UNSAFE should be removed from the market!
It's a good halter for the money. It is thinner than say your standard horse halter, but it stood up great to halter breaking, pulling, trailer loading a particularly cranky llama. It wasn't thin enough to do damage to their noses, and the strength was quite good. The fit was about right. I purchased a couple more for around the place, but for a backcountry trip I might invest in a weaver llama halter.
Halter is made out of very thin material. When my alpaca was tied it pulled back and the thin material actually cut into her nose a bit. I threw this halter in the trash and would never buy another.
