Another UpDate to Baling Twine

horse-leadMy newest and best project yet is this lead made of coral and turquoise baling twine.  It has a brass hook that is used on sailing ships.  

I’ve used these hooks on lead ropes before and they don’t break very easily.  Gimme A Dream is the only horse to break one and he pulled four large spruce trees out by the roots that he was cross tied to, so I could trim his hooves. The hook broke on the last tree when he ran over it, and his hooves had to wait cause the 17hh, 1400lbs monster was loose and running down the road.

 These ropes don’t break with the pressure that he can put on them.  They are UV resistant and last in all types of weather.  If I leave it on the fence post, it gets kick to the ground and spends the winter months under snow and hooves, it is going to be the same come spring. Give it a wash and go.
