    One of my girls has been wearing her saddle for a month now and acted like it didn't bother her at all. She has beautiful new feathers coming in under it.
    I finally got off my butt, got out my sewing machine and refined my saddle design to make one for Lil' Bit. Her back's not torn up, but I wanted to protect her blooming tailfeathers from pecking. Something about LB's tailfeathers the others just can't resist.
    While I had the machine out I went ahead and made a saddle for one of the girls that was getting a bare back.
    I smiled with satisfaction this morning watching my three saddle wearing girls walking around with their nice new saddles on and feeling my job was well done, I put the sewing machine away.
    Checked just a little while ago. Saddle girl #1 has lost her saddle and I can't find it anywhere!!! [​IMG]
    Back to the sewing machine! [​IMG]

    Quote:I wouldn't put it past this bunch but no, the saddle was denim. As of 30 minutes ago Saddle Girl #1 is sporting a new saddle. If they don't like me disturbing their sleep for saddle fittings then they need to learn to keep the dang things on! [​IMG]
