Like all of our Collars, this is an American made collar. Made individually, using traditional methods and equipment.
The #42 buggy collar is made with good quality split leather on the back and rim with black full grain leather on the face.
It has the outside seam insewn with a 1/2″ strip of leather to protect the thread. It is available in Full Face, Half-Sweeny or Full Sweeny. Buckle and strap or lever type fastener.
#42 collars are also available with an adjustable collar cap which allows for sizes in increments of 3″, i.e. 21-22-23″. Collars are an important investment and we are glad to offer the adjustable cap at no extra charge. Adjustable collars are not available in sizes smaller than 16″
Sizes 10″-24″ Shaped to fit Horses or Mules/ Donkeys, just specify when you order. Available in Half Sweeny, Full Face or Mule/Donkey. Most sizes in stock.
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. Necks that are heavy and thick all the way up are FULL SWEENY. Mules and Donkeys have their own special shaped collars. Their necks are flatter on the sides and more straight than horses.
