The OH has Dunedan and our kid's nominal bet is Older Than Time.

That's why they put the sheepskin on.The horse keeps it's head up trying to look over it.Tricks of the trade.

Interesting, one of my kids was asking about sheepskin nosebands just the other day and I didn't know why some horses had them. Thanks.
