Is this a custom job, or did Circle Y make it?

I got a used barrel saddle awhile back for my mare, and I absolutely love it. It's a Circle Y Martha Josey saddle, and so far the only one that has comfortably fit Magic.
What I'm curious about is the paintings on it. I was curious if Circle Y ever made a matching headstall for the saddle, or if the painting was a custom job.

Here's some pictures. Has anyone ever seen a saddle like it?

(Sorry, it's sort of hard to make out. It's got a saddle number and stuff.)

Thanks for any help!

It looks as though they did make it, because you can see the Circle Y logo on the fender.

Oh, I know the saddle is Circle Y. I just meant the paintings on it... ^^; If someone bought the saddle and then painted it themselves, or if Circle Y sold it like that.

Ohhhh so sorry! I miss read.

Hmm, that is a good question though. I have never seen a saddle like that before with paintings, and the paintings are really interesting and pretty.

You can call Circle Y with the serial number and they can tell you.

Good way to go. I would bet the ranch, though, that it was done by an owner somewhere along the line.

I have never seen one like it, I think the person did that, but ya never know I agree with Luvs2ride

I contacted Circle Y with the serial number, as suggested, and they agree that the saddle was either a custom order or the owner did it themselves.
I was surprised to find out, though, that it's almost 15 years old! It seems like it's in such good condition!
