So I searched Craigslist to see how much they were going for. Ended up finding CHIP on craigslist, that feisty Appaloosa that we owned for two days. Long story short, the guy that Chip was sold to-not by us, we gave him back because we just couldn't handle three-at the time-horses!-ended up lying like crazy on the ad about Chip!! yeah. So annoyed. So A called, complained and told him off. Gonna see what we can do....ugh.
Anyways, I continued my search after discussing the above matter with A, then came across an ad for a saddle, priced at $140. I was like, "Meh, this isn't going to be nice." but I ended up clicking it for some reason and really liked it.
I mean, obviously it isn't as nice as mine. But the seat is realllllyyyy nice, I love high backs! And it has the snakeskin detailing like my saddle does, so all of the stuff I got to match that will still match. The front of the saddle seems to be very matte like leather or unfinished, so if I buy this one, I'll probably paint it to make it fancier.
There are some things I don't like about it, but I think after a good cleaning and some paint it'll be gorgeous. Here are some paint ideas, if I get it-
|Excuse the quality. Of course the black would be red.|
|Yeah, this is an award saddle, but I like the design on the leg. Maybe some writing? I think it would be cute to have his name somewhere..|
|Could also do some stencil work on it. I wouldn't do the barrel racer, but maybe something else|
|The zebra is too tacky for me-pun intended this time...-but I like the idea.|
We shall see what happens! :)
