    Venice's new collar finally arrived, and I LOVE it. I love the padding, love the width, and it seems very well made. It is just a tad too tight, so I have it on the second last hole, which is fine, except that the 'tail' of the strap is now too short to fit into the keeper, so it looks a little sloppy. Is there anything I can do as the leather breaks in and softens to help give it a better fit?

    Photobucket killed the quality of course, sorry.

    It's on the third last hole here, and the strap fits into the keeper, but it felt a bit too tight to me.

    It is beautiful! What nice colors on her!

    I'd take it to a leather person (ask around at horse tack stores if you don't know one) and ask them if they could move the keeper or something. The leatherworks guy in our area has fixed everything from horse tack to collars for me, and if it is someone who is used to working on horse stuff, they will be able to tell you before touching it if they can fix it without compromising the strength.

    Gorgeous collar. Maybe you could contact the company that made it and ask if they could move the keeper over for you.
