Here is a picture of the tree we mentioned in a blog post a while ago - in all its glory...

The horn is an exposed, polished bronze # 1 horn made by Herb Bork of Bork Saddlery Hardware.

So shiny, you can see your face in it!!  

Just something else a little different...

It is SO pretty (thank you, Rod) and I want to ride in it so badly right NOW, but the saddle and tooling must do justice to the horn, so it will take longer, and I can't even start it until I get two almost-finished custom saddles out the door, so it sits on my worktable (with a weight on it) looking beautiful and taunting me daily. Aaaarrrgggghhhhh!!!
