Finally found a day to get out.

Been so busy with life myself and my longtime hunting buddy decided to get out and take a break from the daily grind.
Met some of the neatest farmers today. Had as much fun talking to them as hunting to be honest.
I didn’t come away with much but, I did manage a 1891 IH, 1920 Wheatie and a nice #5 Crotal Bell. Been a while since I found a decent one so, that was a surprise.

Got to look through the guys old barns and noticed a old saddle sitting covered in dust and bird droppings. Looked kinda neat all tooled leather. I said “neat old saddle” to him and he says “you can have it for $20”. Now first off I’m no Cowboy (maybe redneck though) and I don’t own horses and I don’t know squat about saddles but, I figured how can I go wrong for $20.
It will make a neat conversation piece in the basement I figure.
Happy Hunting everyone. :)

Nice finds Mike but the saddle is the best. It is a fairly old Western saddle, English saddles don’t have the horn in front for roping. I’m very sure you can quintuple your money quite easily but do NOT “clean” anything. My Mom had horses for 45 years, so I know a bit about them...enough to know what yours is and you’re in it right. Facebook Marketplace would be the place to find your buyer...

Thanks, that’s reassuring on the saddle. (y)
