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'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

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!
