    I'll tell you, if you soak the whole fender in a tub of warm water for about 10 minutes before you stick that log in there, it will work a ton better. Then you can oil it lightly (it will need oiled anyway) after it's dry and your fenders will be set just right and super supple.

    At least mine are.

    Oooh. Good idea. I was wondering if wetting it first would be easier, so it looks like the plan now.

    My stirrups are currently being set, but with a broom handle rather than that log thing I mentioned. Hopefully it'll work just as efficiently because the fenders were wet.

    I looooove the aluminum stirrups on this saddle. The grips were awesome, especially compared to the slippery stirrups on my other saddle. It'll be really comfy when it's broken in and conforms to my butt. I also have to get used to the grippiness of suede. I rugburned my butt working on stops with Abby because my jeans stayed where they were, but I didn't
    . Ow.

    But here is Fattykins in her new saddle. Note - She is so funny colored because she is drenched in sweat. She had a come to Jesus before I rode because she apparently forgot she was a trained horse, completely disregarding me and dragging me around the arena when I was trying to lunge her. Le sigh.

    Very nice looking saddle! (I'm tempted to ask how much it was given it looks so nice, but I won't )
