Where did I go all summer? Well, see, I have this pony…

…and we started showing…

…and it seemed to suck up all my free time. But, we had a blast. Now, I'm back to the old routine and my pony's free to get fuzzy again. Only, I seemed to acquire yet another project…

…who likes to torture our other dog…

Really, he is a good puppy.

So, life has been crazy. But, I've been trying to finish up a bunch of projects, so stay tuned.

I swear I didn't drop off the face of the planet. :)

Custom silver plates: check

Tooling: check

Edges prepped and burned: check

First coat of finish: check

Now to assemble all the pieces into a saddle. I'm experimenting with new adjustable stirrups, which if it works out the way I hope it will, will be just like the real thing. Cool.

Here is a sneak peak at my next project.

I have so many to finish up, yet I feel some inspiration to work with silver and make something fancy. This will be a pleasure saddle, fully tooled. What you see here is my first attempt at custom plates. Not too bad!

I'm getting pretty excited about this one already, and it's going to be tough to let it go.

I hate it when the local store stops selling your tried and true product. Like my favorite crafting glue for example. You would think that I'd be able to find it at at least one store in a 1.5 hour radius. Nope.

After trying out a bunch of new glues it's back to hunting down the original.
Oh i digress.

Happy new year!

I must say I have not bee
n very good at keeping up the blog lately. The past few months have been a whirlwind of mainly work related things along with some real horse stuff. Forcing my little hobby to take a back seat. But now that the new year is here I hope to get back into the swing of things. And of course to finish up those pesky projects that have been sitting on my desk.

I've been working on a modified pleasure harness design and plan to offer one up to the group later this month. So stay tuned!
