Looks good from this end, . . . hope she enjoys wearing them as much as you did making them.

Those have to be a labor of love, . . .

May God bless,
Dwight

PS: Do you have any links to "old time" or "antique" chap designs, pictures, images? I want to make myself a pair of authentic looking "old style" cowboy chaps, but most of the images I come up with don't quite give me the details I need.
If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.

Thanks everyone.
Casey, the brand is a New Mexico brand and from what I gather the ranch that ran it was from the Farmington area.

I have no real good reference for you on old chap pictures. There was a coffee table book about chaps out but I do not know who it was by. But many of the books about rodeo history have some good pictures. I also watch ebay and once in awhile an old set with good pictures pop's up.
