The hunter set in this order is officially complete, pending the owner's approval. Woo!
On the customizing side of the table, yesterday I decided I need a big, couch-like Cob type guy to wear some UK huntseat or possibly side saddle tack.
This was definitely an I NEED IT RIGHT NOW LET'S GO kind of project, and it shows.
I really need to go back and redo most of his neck (I'll never figure out how to do the withers area properly- ugh!), but I think there is cuteness potential.
I'm picturing a sweet bay or black color, with a roached mane and neatly trimmed tail?
I think the end goal is some kind of side saddle pas de deux with this little fella...
...or maybe I'll finally make a Handy Hunter drink table entry happen!
On the less cute and fluffy side of things, this was my lesson this week in knowing when to quit:
Dear Future Grace:
If there are noticeable inconsistencies in the color of your piece of leather, don't use that leather.
I now have a funky looking multi-toned English saddle sitting around, and I don't know if it deserves a bridle. Maybe I'll try dab-dyeing the whole thing a darker tone...
