I'm not even going to tell you how many hours I wasted on this today...Gimme S'more may have a cute face, but it's definitely not halter friendly. I had to redo the noseband three separate times before it fit properly. I thought about giving up more than once, but I really did not want to add another item to the unfinished project pile.
Speaking of the unfinished project pile... these saddleseat saddles are no longer amongst its numbers. Progress may be slow, but at least there is progress!
One of those saddles will be heading across the ocean to Gimme S'more's former owner Erin Corbett. Speaking of whom, Erin sent me this picture earlier today. It was taken in 1997 and shows Erin and Cactus winning a Donkey Showmanship class at a big Donkey and Mule Show in Washington State. Erin reports that they were the only "English" entries in the class.
Donkey Week will come to an end tomorrow when I post pictures from the Donkey Cart class at the National Western Stock Show. After that, I promise, it will be back to horses!
