Is this kind of what you are looking for?

Yes it is.
Interesting quilt-stitching on that one. All mine have had the stiching done in "squares" but I'd think that one way of doing it is as good as another.

Thanks for the photo.

And BTW, I did look all over ebay but nothing there, soooo..... the search continues.

Are you wanting a pony pad? That's what we always called them or baby pads. For going under another pad to keep it clean, or just used alone.
Heres some from smartpak

Wow Vida! Nice hunting! Those look really close to what I'm after...but the one I have is 100% cotton. Most likely a bit stiffer than those but, it is the same size as those. Thanks!

I have a friend who uses "baby pads" I always thought she was talking about regular human baby changing pads Then I figured out what they were. DOH!

Those are real close....but much too small. I'd need one about 32X36 or it'd get lost under my big ole saddle.

And BTW, I did call the number that you posted earlier and talked to a real nice gentleman who knew exactly what I was after. But, he says that he hasn't seen one in years.

One of my neighbor-ladies did some searching for me and found a couple of fabric stores over in the next town that carries real cotton batting, heavy-weight cotton denium and cotton duck (tent material).
So if all else fails, at least I can get the materials and make a couple myself.

Thanks for the help.

You might check around for someone who does machine quilting in your area. We still have a few ladies here who do it. When grandma got older she could make a quilt top but couldn't do the quilting anymore. Last one I got done wasnt very expensive and that was for a queen sized quilt. Sorry Hunn's couldn't help you out :(
