".... What? "
I ordered this cotton lead because I quite fancied the gradient style of it-not tie dye, just saying. Anyway. I receive the lead rope, and the first thing I notice is the fact that I probably could have made it myself with a few dollars and a trip to Home Depot. The metal clasp that holds the bolt snap on is extremely cheap and don't even get me started on the actual bolt snap.... HOLY COW. The thing is tiny. I feel like I may break it if I open it too fast to clip it onto a halter, which it barely fits on, I might add... So I really can't imagine what a nice tug from my horse will do to it, but I'm sure you could sell it as a safety feature, it was cheaper than most break-away halters. Ha. I've saved the best for last though. THE END OF THIS ROPE IS NOT REVERSE WEAVED TO SECURE IT. It is secured by freaking electrical tape. ELECTRICAL TAPE?! Is this a joke? Am I in an alternate universe? What is this nightmare.... So I'm all about finding positivity in things. I used some heat shrink tubing instead of the electrical tape, got it nice and melted and topped it off with a nice big glob of superglue. So while my first unnecessary horse purchase was fun to make, I'm sad to say my money would have been better spent on a boat with a hole in the bottom of it, or maybe a car with no wheels.
