Slings and things

After Darcy's most recent medical misadventure, she had to spend a couple weeks wearing an e-collar.
Being the supportive dog mama I am, I made a miniature cone of shame...
and wrote a blog post mocking her predicament.
Now it's my turn to wear post-operative medical equipment.
If I had two good hands, I would have made my own miniature sling.  Since that's not the case, I asked Anne Field to do it instead.  Here is what she came up with:
It's worth noting that there is no mockery in Anne's world.  Instead, the injured party is being treated kindness and respect.

I think Anne might be a nicer person than I am...

  3. I buy it at either Tandy or the Leather Factory. If you don't have one near you, they do mail order. A small bottle of gum tragacanth will last you a long time and it costs less than $10!

  7. Jen,i was wondering when you have a stone pony,do you use a classic bit or a traditional scal from rio rondo..

  8. For bits, I'd definitely go traditional, but then, I like big bits. Saddles are harder. The traditional pony models (Stone, CWP, Misty, Flash, Newsworthy, etc) are too small for a full traditional scale saddle tree but too big for classic. When I have an order for one, I always end up cutting down the traditional scale tree. It's a lot of work, but looks much more proportional when finished!

    2. No, I really don't have any interest in shooting videos. My son does, but so far I think all he has posted are short clips of the dogs and rats.
