My husband is a silversmith, and he also makes bits and spurs. You would not believe what people ask him to make!! It's disgusting! He always turns them down though, thank goodness. One guy wanted a tom thumb with the mouthpiece made out of SCREWS! Uck!
He also has people ask him to make "cheater bits" for shows - they look like snaffles but they have a high port like a correction bit. I guess they figure the judge won't ask them to drop their bridles? DUH!
