Australian Stockman's Saddle
Very exciting news! This fun, rather large box showed up at our house the other day.
Steve and Chances saddle arrived. We'd sent a wither tracing so it fits him very nicely.
The only pad that slightly fit was my English one but even then it was a bit too small. We have an Australian on on order plus a leather hole punch (great tool to have in the tack room anyways). When I mounted up I noticed the stirrups need to be shorted by many inches so we'll punch some holes properly once we get that tool. I was bummed I didn't get to ride Chance much, not being able to reach the stirrups on a horse I haven't ridden since I test rode him is not something I'm took inclined to do.
I also received my barn calendar for the next year. I've already premarked when I need to feed them psyillium (if I keep them on it out here). I can also put dates for appointments and possible hoof trimming.
I think my favorite months will be July....
What? I girl needs a barn calendar!
