Nose Band for Humans

Stylish and Warming.

How many times have you admired the fluffy nose bands, as worn by racing horses ? I think they're designed to prevent the halter from rubbing on the horses nose, but I've often thought they look rather sprauncy.

Aside from mere aesthetic considerations, a fluffy nose band would be invaluable during spells of inclement weather. No longer would your winter strolls be spoiled by having to retreat indoors with a freezing proboscis. Instead, you could step out with confidence – fluffy nosegear to the fore.

       [sparky] : Hmm...it's not really the same though, is it ? I suppose you might acheive the same result, but with considerably less elan.

       Actually they're used to stop horses shying at things on the ground. So if seeing what you're stepping in freaks you out then I'd say go for it.

       Lots of sporty sorts put plasters on their noses, I think to keep important nasal passges clear and aid breathing. Nosebands might encourage hyperventilation or result in lots of wheezing.   

       Equipping the office-fodder with horsey-type blinkers would encourage them to focus on the computer screen rather than waste time gawping out of the window.
