    That is good news that you don't have to move Hunter
    I know nothing about Western saddles - is it hard to find one to fit high withers? Can you get pads with shims to adjust for that?

    I also pickled some eggs yesterday. Have never done that, but had to figure out something to do with all the banty eggs I'm getting. So we'll see how they turn out when we eat them this weekend! Eeeeeeek!

    I'm supposed to go look at that ... um ... surprise birthday present for DH this weekend. Of course, I'm going to have to SNEAK over there. I'll take pics and let ya'll know.
    We had our first rattle snake about a week ago a baby also, no buttons but was an aggressive little thing coiled, was shaking it's tail and striking at me, I put it on a rake and took it way out in the desert and let it go, probably should of killed it but I didn't. It was the first rattler I've seen here we have alot of Bull Snakes and King Snakes.

    We are in copperhead country here at the edge of the Piney Woods.. But, to date (3 years) we have seen mostly copperheads, but also rat/chicken snakes, cottonmouths, hognose, garden snakes, one timber rattler, one coral snake.

    Then there are the scorpions ... and the spiders (black widows, brown recluse) .. *sigh* You just get used to them after a while .....

    I can assure you, I could never get used to that many types of snakes, along with spiders and scorpions. We have the brown recluse, I tend to watch my back at the barn, because I know they will try to seek me out
    texasgal and Hunter65 like this.

    I had a foam pad that fit under the front of my Aussie saddle. When I was riding Duke regularly the saddle started to pinch near his withers (that's what makes me wonder about Belle losing weight the saddle shouldn't pinch).

    Hey when I am at barn on Sat I will look for pad, it worked wonders, maybe you could try it on Belle CW????

    They also need to find a saddle too
    I am not sure how much they can afford
