is right, they are in order :)
This week has been a bit of a bust. Weather has not been bad, but having to deal with moving hay and then going to the city for work ate in to any horse time I would have had.
I buy round bales and I tried a different way of storing them as we do not have a covered shed. Well, turns out my 'great idea' was not so great. I hate dealing with tarps and I spent nearly all my time after work on Wednesday sorting out the tarps - which were frozen to the ground. Let's just say many choice words were said.....
As some of you may already know from some of the other threads, I am having a saddle fit issue with my fat mare. I have tried a number of options and have not been really happy with any of them. I do have a very well respected equine body worker who is also very knowledgable about treeless saddles coming out next week to let me demo a few brands. I will also get her to check the fit of the IMUS saddle I am currently trialing.
Below are some pictures of some of the saddles I have tried. Starting with her current one - which definitely does NOT fit her anymore (not to worry, I have not been riding her in this saddle at all) I am planning on driving to the store I bought this saddle from and putting it on consignment. It is basically still brand new - I will be sad to see it go, but it just does not fit her and I don't really need a saddle like this at the moment.
The second is a saddle from the States I trialed (a Pawnee I think?), but it just looks ridiculous on her. The last is the Imus I am trialing. I actually really like this saddle, but also don't think it is a good fit for her. It does allow more clearance in her shoulder, but still bridges. Ironically I put Tiger's back templates against the Imus and it actually seems like it would be a good fit for him!!
Anytime I see saddles on her, I always think of Chris Farley in Tommy Boy - Big Guy in a Little Coat!
