I have not disappeared, I was just busy this week taking a farrier course at the beautiful Griffin Valley Ranch.
It was a simple 3 day barefoot trimming course and I learned a lot! I have always wanted to learn and the instructor was a great teacher. I will be trimming Fallon's feet later this week, I will post some before and after shots. I have been able to make a little progress on saddles this week though, including some work on this larger Traditional black and tan saddle that will be for a trade:
Things to comes are: finishing the working western saddle I started, an eventing saddle, and a saddleseat saddle.
