Little Shit


I'm not trying to be crude by calling this "little shit" but that's what I call this process, it is even written on my order list that I print up for each saddle. This is the process of making all the small parts of a saddle :buttons, latigo, cinch and hobble Carry's, hobble straps, rope straps, breast collar or martingale dees, billets and flank cinch, breast collars, latigos etc. Some of these are made during the downtime of building the saddle (like when the glue is drying) some of these parts are cut out in bulk to save time, and some are made when I finish all the other work on the saddle. Once all the little shit is done then it is on to oiling and assembling the saddle.
