Thanks for friending me Richard!! I have enjoyed the discussions, and your perspective as a leather Artist!! I met some really nice leather Artisans at a Celtic Festival when I was a teenager...fascinating watching them demo their work!! And as I needed a bracelet with my name (odd spelling, so had to have special ordered) my Mum & Da had one made for me...I STILL have it and wear it now. As a matter of fact, my daughter teethed on it, so it now has baby teeth imprints in it!! Your work is amazing...I peak at your saddles every now and again, wishing we still had horses, so I could get a saddle...they are gorgeous! See you on the Forums and Blogs!!
Richard, have you ever done the Howard Allen show in Aspen. I'm considering it in 2014, but I've heard unloading and loading was a nightmare. Any thoughts on this show . . . and Howard Allen . . . would be greatly appreciated.
I want to leave you a note regarding the passing of your horse earlier this summer. I was in you shoes in July myself having to put down my horse due to colic. He was a great one for me and he had a very high opinion of himself as well. I got him as a scrawny 18 month old, barely 14 hands. He grew up to be 16.2 hands and was known by many people across the state. We showed for years before tossing that aside and headed for the Judge Trail Rides so popular in Northern Virginia. He was always game to go wherever I pointed him, and always showed himself to be a sane and solid horse. Having to put him down that morning in July was certainly the hardest thing I've ever done. He was with me for over 24 years. It's easy to say that it will be hard to be replaced. (Husband will NOT allow another unfortunately and I miss having a horse in the worse way.). My condolences to your loss.
