Our life has been filled

Posted by RodandDenise on August 22, 2013

We are no longer building saddle trees. We have two saddle fit videos available on our westernsaddlefit.com websiteWestern Saddle Fit - The Basics, aimed at riders, is available either on DVD or streaming on Vimeo while the six hour series Well Beyond the Basics, aimed more for professionals but understandable by anyone, is available by streaming on Vimeo. (We left this website up because we have had many requests to keep the information available.)

We did our yearly wood buying trip to Edmonton, and now our wood storage is filled for the year.

Doodle and the Keeper Beeper, however, are still filled with distain for me. That never changes…

Almost since we got back, our hallway has been filled with shoes – because we have had visitors.

The garden is filled with good things that we get to pick…

On Tuesday, trees ready to ship filled the bench

Rod was rawhiding that day but didn’t get the bucket filled with scraps…

The rawhided trees were filled with too much water, so they got set outside to try and start the drying process.

The shelf under the bench is filled with the next set of trees, ready to build.

And while the hole left by Taylor will never be filled

Thanks for the suggestion! Bo would be a consideration, but we did finally settle on Bella as a name on Saturday. I just need to quit calling her "puppy" now as I got used to that over the five "nameless" days. She really is a good dog!
