Saddles and spots

I am a morning person. My productivity tends to peak early and lessens as the day goes on. By dinnertime, I'm done. I almost never work on tack after dinner. By then I'd much rather sit on the couch and read or watch tv...

Yesterday was one of the rare exceptions to that rule. I was so close to having these saddles finished that I decided to press on into the evening hours. I am so glad I did. The saddles look great and now I can spend today working on girths and bridles.
One of these saddles is for sale. If you're interested, please check out my ad here: http://www.modelhorsesalespages.com/sales/view_details.asp?id=750044
The other saddle is for Sheila Anderson Bishop. In exchange, she will be custom painting my Starfire resin. Here are just a few of the reference pictures I'm sending her. This is a pony I saw at a schooling show back in September. I'd love to own this pony but since he's not for sale, I'll have to settle for his miniature counterpart. Enjoy!
