Goddamn Saddles...

So. I now own this.
Say hello to this 17" medium tree beauty.

And I am the brokest of broke in mare-land.
Originally I was searching for saddles in the $1,000 price range. And then somehow got looking at some priced a little higher. And then got looking at CWD's somehow. And then I saw this one. And then two tack fairy's known as a SprinklerBandit and a Redheadlins told me so many magical things about the ol' cwd.

I was hesitant, because, you know, money. And still being sick (and not knowing if I was going to ever get better) and doing the damn thing justice. But the boy assured me that if I died, at least it would be fairly easy to resell and could bring its money back. Thank you Blaker.

I told myself I would not spend more than $2200 on it. And the Ebay gods lit up my phone. SOLD! $2125.00. Thank you Paypal Credit.

And the first words out of my mouth...OH CRAP.

We shall see if I am worthy...

  4. What a great deal. The new full calf or full buffalo (that looks like calf) are 5500 + tax so I would say you did well! If it has the pro panels I bet it'll fit most horses fairly well as mine does. :)

  5. Love my CWD. You got a good deal, I doubt you'll regret it. Being broke is temporary, CWD obsession is forever.
