The Brodhead 62 Field Collar has a Tick Facing and is our economy field/work collar. This collar has an average draft of 18″ with heavy duty ticking on the face. The back and rim are assorted full grain leather. It has a double stitched outseam with an extra wear plate fastened down with thongs. Available in half sweeny or full face.
Like all of our Collars, this is an American made collar. Made individually by American craftsmen using traditional methods and equipment.
Please measure carefully for your collar size.
How to Measure for a Collar:
- Use a collar measuring tool or make your own tool using two carpenter’s squares (L shaped rulers) or L shaped cardboard cutouts. Overlap the long sides of the two rulers or cutouts forming what looks like a letter C or one vertical side of a collar.
- Place measuring tool on the animal as if it were one vertical side of the collar. Place it just where you want the collar to sit on the animal at the wither and below the airway. Grip the tool so it won’t slip as you remove it. Be sure the two parts do not slip; then measure from the top to the bottom on the inside. That will be your collar size.
- Look from the front at your horse’s neck. You will be able to shape of the animal’s neck and determine the (sweeny) for the collar. Average, straight necks, i.e. thoroughbred, standardbred are FULL FACE. Necks that are wider at the bottom than the top, i.e. quarter horse, fjord, halflinger, most average drafts are HALF SWEENY.
