    DH's saddle came yesterday. Over all we are pretty happy with it but man, does it smell musty!!! Going to give it a good cleaning! It does not look like it should smell as bad as it does. Any suggestions??? Here is a pic of it on our gelding.

    Well do not have any murphys at the moment but have gone over it with saddle soap and a tooth brush and it still stinks! I have it out in the sun right now and well, we will go from there. What do you all think about someone selling such a stinky moldy saddle and not mentioning it??? Should I say something? Would have been nice to be warned and given the choice to buy or not.

    Thank you CW!

    Hi all!

    CS wow! What a bump! I've seen those before and I think DH is right...a pulled muscle. Do you have Asorbine? Maybe wipe him down with that? Maybe he slipped or something you didn't even realize happened during your trail ride?

    Roaddy, must be the week for broken phones...... But I must say...I'm lovin' my upgrade!!

    NVR - like the saddle. Yeah, they should have said somthing......

    Took the 4 wheeler out and puttered around looking for different places to ride besides the dirt roads. There is vacant land not far from mom's, and I noticed someone coming out of it with a 4-wheeler....so I went down there and used their tire tracks to create a nice little trail for me. There are some other 'starter' trails around, but they really go no where.... It's either fields or thick woods around here....

    I did investigate a gas well trail that has intriqued me for a while. I couldn't go too far on the quad (no 4X4) and part of it was a bit soupy. (That's all I need is to get stuck and have to as mom's DH to pull me out! ) So I hoofed it back the rest of the way on foot. Cool looking back in, found a ****ed up little pond....but as I am trapsing bac there (all by myself)...all I could thinkg of was...lions and coyotes and bears OH MY!! So I start whistling so I didn't startle anything! What a sight I am sure.......BUT, as I am ready to turn and head out...a load SCREECH came from the thick brambles beside me! My heart jumped into my throat! First thoughts...bobcat! But after a deep breath....I heard flapping. It was a blue heron!

    I used to do that stuff ALL the time as a kid.....now I scare myself silly!!

    Have a good day everyone!

    I agree I think you can get that smell out though. It may have just been in a musty place. I have used murphys before and it does help.
    I would contact the seller and let them know maybe they will be nice and refund for the cost to clean?
