Like probably every tack maker in the history of model horse tack making, I have a reference file filled with pictures of things I'd like to make someday. Sometimes when I get stuck, I flip though that file, hoping for inspiration. That's what I was doing yesterday when my eyes landed on this Little Buddy saddle."That looks fun," I thought. "I bet I can make it in five minutes."
It turns out I was half right. This was, in fact, a really fun project.
However, it took more than five minutes. Truth be told, it took more than five hours. I didn't mind, though. This was the most enjoyable studio time I've had in recent memory.
Eventually, I'll need a little kid to ride in the buddy saddle, but for now, it belongs to Mieka.
On to the next project!
