    I remember the pics you posted of both yours and your husband's as they were on the stands. They do resemble her's a lot. Does yours sit that high at the front?

    Mine sits up really high in the front. I think that it was really stiff and it has broken in and feels better now.

    My cousin from the Caymens rode in it recently and said "it sits me funny" and I could tell it was pushing her forward instead of sitting her back. Ugh. I have 270 miles in this saddle so I am thinking it is more Biscuit's back than the saddle. The saddle is very comfortable.

    I do have a lady in Oklahoma that is interested in it. I brought it home and conditioned it and got the dust off that accumulates. It looks so pretty!!! Dang...this bites.

    Guess I'm just used to seeing a saddle sit more like this one and haven't tried to sit one like those. I may have to find some one locally with something similar for me to try out.

    Tomorrow I want to go out to the barn and put this saddle on Sarge and see how it fits him. I will take pictures of both horses with this saddle on for y'all to see.

    I went out to see them a while ago - they are so sweet and are passing out sugars to me left and right. Miss going places with my boys!

    Can't wait to see pics of them again. I'm curious to see how it sits on Sarge myself. I'm still trying to learn more about the different saddles.

    We rode 2.8 miles today.

    The bugs were pretty bad. All went well except for one little glitch. Something stung my horse on the backside and she bolted off in a fit of terror. I kept my head and held on and pulled back the reins. She stopped in about 4 strides without much resistance to the bit at all. I think that when I pulled back, she remembered that I was there and decided that she wasn't dying after all. I really am liking her brakes.

    We started not to ride because Abby hurt her lower eyelid. It was just a little 3 mm tear. She must have rubbed it on something. I put some neosporin on it and put a fly mask on her and she did fine. It really is pretty minor. It's these daggone bugs that caused it I'm sure. We live in a jungle. I know that Georgia is not supposed to be called a jungle, but I think it is.

    Between work and the heat and the bugs, I am afraid our riding might be limited for a while.

    59.1 miles total.

    Today inadvertently turned into barn cleaning day. I went down to clean my tack and I'm kicking myself for buying ones with so much tooling. I had to bust out my saddle toothbrush to get into all the tiny places. My english clean with just a wipe but I had to have a fancy tooled dust magnet western saddles. The kicker is they've been covered and were still wicked dusty. The barn swallows also built three more nests in Bloo's shed so he got a bath to get rid of all their little gifts. I broke out my mesh sheet hoping it'll keep him poop free like it does with the mud. Normally I leave it on until he dries after baths but I think he might be living in it for the summer.

    Ok Celeste, you can stop riding now. You have almost caught up with me for the year and I won't be putting any miles on for another 9 weeks now. Which will really be longer because who is going to ride the beginning of August in Georgia, no me.

    Don't worry, I'll be working most of the summer.
