I almost forgot
Here is a picture of my lovely new saddle on the beautiful saddle stand Dave had made for me (we love Dave). I can drop the panels on both sides, and am supposed to keep saddle cleaning stuff in there. But, I have to admit, I use it largely as a bar. Hey! Everybody’s got to be somewhere! And it is a very fancy bar at tailgates and whatnot. Right now it is doubling as an actual saddle stand.
