Ring the bell on this one. Nice work. I like the way the buckle is fastened for the rope strap. I am guilty of running them up from under the front jockey and have that little lump. I can make out the border stamp and the block, but what is the filler between the blocks on the seat jockeys and fenders? The alligator looks good. That steer can feel pretty good about donating its hide to make something that looks this good too. Thanks for posting this.

Absolutely stunning saddle. Nice balance of floral and geometric. Really like the rawhide buckstitching on the fork very subtle. When are you going to sell me that four heart Don King border stamp... I got a nice 3 heart one I might consider trading you for...I think it's probably more valuable than yours so I might need something extra with the deal. Just joshin... thanks again for the stamp... probably going to use it on my current project.

Bruce in between the geometric stamps is a flower center I got from Don King 5 or 6 years ago. It was a prototype for an idea he had and as far as I know it is the only one he made. Don made the geometric I used on this saddle as well. The breast collar dee and rope strap buckle tab are the same piece of leather. The rope strap buckle just has a hook on the back like a belt buckle. The weight of your rope keeps it tight and you just have to pull down on the tail of the strap to undo it. Works real slick. Greg

That saddle is absolutly top shelf. Good work, your lines are balanced, the aligator is awsome, and one great job with the carving. I like how you did the inskirt riggin(I may have to pick your brain a little on that some day)
