That'?s what we used to play with our grandmothers. Because they had a concrete entrance and pavements. Many of them I painted in crayon in my youth. I even painted one with text on the concrete because I'd run out of it. Mama wasn't struck, n I was crying when I knelt and swabbed it off the concrete while Mom was watching.

Neckline bell belt
It is generally assumed that the belt is the most frequent kind of belt. This may be the case today, but many early 19th century chime chimes were neckbands, not sashes. Neckbelts have some handy benefits over waist straps: Throatbells are better shielded from blows and fractures.
Clocks and belt are not so filthy due to the presence of snows and silt. Clocks do not confuse the line (reins). Weighty buckets work together with the force of gravity by being suspended from the bottom of the belt. One or more of the most popular collars has one or more series of sled covers that run along the length of the collar.
They can all be the same length or they can be graded in sizes, with the biggest one at the deepest point of the throat. It can be placed around the horse's naked nape or around the neckband, according to the kind of harness to be used.

Some manufacturers built their collars more like a small horse collars. You have inlaid a cushioning of horsehair, thin horsehair or fibres between the bucket band and lining and then sewn the two bands together along their length to keep the cushioning in place.

These types of straps are designed to fit around the horse's throat. It is either placed behind the ham or around the withers belt before being strapped, according to the kind of harness used. These precautions keep the bell in place when the horse puts his chin down.
If you have a saddled horse or a horse with a chest belt, the belt should be comfortable on the horse's shoulder and just below the trachea. On a horse with a collared belt, the belt should be in the slot around the neck on the top of the ham. Do not let the straps limit the horse's breathability or the seat of the harness.
Usually the clasp is on the horse's throat. Security tip: Be careful to fasten a necklace so that it does not slip when the horse puts its nose down. Length of a neckbell band is dependent on both the width and the length of your horse's neckband, so be careful when measuring.
