Have you been feeling better?
And wooohoo congrats on the saddle!!
No worries about the "stalking" lol I appreciate it (and your words of encouragement
I was feeling better until I talked to one of our regular customers today. Her daughter had a similar situation to mine happen with her car (got impounded for a DUI, though) and it cost a crap-load of money to get the car out of impound. So now I'm all worried that I won't be able to afford to get my truck out.
And I still haven't gotten my taxes back. Hopefully tomorrow they'll get deposited (another customer said that hers has always been deposited on the Friday after both state and federal returns were accepted when she's used TurboTax, which is what I used...my federal returns were accepted last Wednesday, but my state wasn't accepted until Friday).
As for the saddle, I'm pretty happy about it. I'm 85% sure it fits Aires. I remember this summer when we tried one of the saddles that belongs to the trainer on him, without being cinched, it kind of perched on his withers and there was about 6" of space between his withers and the pommel. When I sat our new saddle on his back today (while he was eating...he hates me now lol), there was just about three fingers worth of clearance between the top of his withers and the pommel of the saddle. So, here's hoping it fits. If it doesn't fit him, it'll fit my friend's arab (probably...he's got such shark-fin withers, he may need a cutback saddle) and she wants to start trying English anyway, so I'll just give it to her.
