Silver and gold

I finished this bit today. I used sterling silver for the lady, and 10K gold for the hair and bikini. At least it's not the mud flap girl.

A couple of my horse trainer buddies claim this is the best feeling bit they have ever used. It is for sale. 600.00$ plus tax and shipping.

Jessica's pictures

I let Jessica and Hillary drag me off to a little horse event Saturday. The weather was warm, the cattle were fresh, and a good time was had by all,
 Jessica had a new lens for her camera and took lots of good photos.

They kept me up way past my bed time. it might be a while before I go back.

Headstall buckles

I am always looking for something to do with the scrap from my damascus bits ans spurs. Most of the time they are small, and go into the scrap barrel, but the Buster bit left me with with some pieces big enough for some buckles.

A " Buster Welch" style bit

The originals had aluminum shanks and a mouth piece similar to what I have installed. I wouldn't be scared to say that this is the most copied bit out there by our Asian friends, but to my knowledge, it's the first made from damascus by any body.

If you are not familiar with Buster, look him up, he has done about as much for the cutting, and quarter horse industry in general, as any one.
