It got real cool, the end of August, first part of September, then it got hot…seemed like it was hotter than it had been all summer, but I am sure that isn’t right..
Been doing some leather work, building a saddle.. a young man came to visit Chance the other day and while here, rode one of our horses and one of my saddles.. he ended up ordering one… still waiting on the down payment on it, but pretty sure it’s coming.. this saddle I am building now is interesting.. the guy wants it to look old timey but be modern..big square skirts, just some border stamping… gonna, be cool.. I am supposed to be building Chance a saddle and he needs one, he’s about outgrown his old one and Gus rides it a lot… he is getting too big! Chance was thinking big square skirts… I have never been a fan, but got to admit that they do look cool. I have a tree to build myself another one on, seeing as my oldest Grandson, who shall remain nameless, stole mine last year.. he has since found another one to ride.. I tell you, when you go to getting 8 grandkids and three adults all horseback, it takes lots of saddles and horse!
So on my new one, I am thinking to make it look similar to an old 1870’s model saddle… we will see if I still do it or not.
