    Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.

    I just thought it was funny that you didn't know there were chains on bridles....and now you're an expert on them!

    Obviously, you are not .. In fact, you must not know jackchit if you think for a minute that thing you posted is an accurate representation of anything.


    Go educate yourself, and we will pick up this conversation later.

    OK Mud, if it is not a bridle chain what is it? And, while I couldn't find an exact match I did find one called a lip chain.

    Call it whatever you wish .. in the long scheme of things, it won't really matter.

    Could be the chain off of a set of cow shackles, which we called 'kickers'. These were attached to the rear legs to keep a cow from kicking the bucket while it was being milked. Haven't used a set since we quit milking in 1967.

    There is a large ring centered in the chain with an even number of links to both sides. perhaps it was a center point for lifting ? hay, log or ice tongs come to mind.

    Horse hobbles have a D ring on either end but can't find an example of the secure ring in the middle.

    Question for mmocha did you recover any other buckles in the immediate surrounding area?

    I'm not certain where the OP's chain was used, but bridles do sometimes incorporate chains and so do hobbles. I have both if you need pics.
