It has arrived! My new saddle arrived a few days ago, all the way from Oklahoma. Been waiting for what seems like ages, but it was worth it!
It took a long time to decide what type of saddle to get, but I finally plumped for the “Billy Cook, Arbuckle Wade Ranch Saddle”. The pics not brilliant, but it will do for now! Yes I was excited, but worried, just in case I had measured her (Gracie) incorrectly. Well I neednt have worried! Rode out yesterday, what can I say? I came back as comfortable as I went, but whats more, Gracie felt different? Softer, easier, or was it just me?
Anyhow, did an hour again today, again, brilliant! Definitely, the horse was easier, and softer. The old saddle must have been past its best!
Down Came The Trees!!!!
Finally after months of waiting, the trees opposite our cottage, have been cut down! No more Larch needles blocking drains, guttering, overflows, and getting wedged in the car windows!!
But the best thing?? More of a view, and more sunlight! The trees standing to the right in this picture, have now gone too!
The day was a wet one, but hey! Are we happy!! It has been so dark these last ten years, but now? We have light!
We had no power for most of the last week, during the day, and as I have been working night shifts, I have`nt posted, Sorry!
Ok, just one more of the saddle!!
