But I did today! After riding yesterday I brought it home to oil it once more, and took some pictures when I was done.
And just for kicks, here are a couple of pictures with the new stirrups and leathers we got. The leathers are still stretching so it's a bit funky to ride in them... they feel too long on one hole and too short in the next up! After a bit of riding they should be fine though, or so Debbie says. It is pretty pliant leather, so I'd not be surprised.
In my oiling frenzy this afternoon I also dark-oiled my work-boots, which I have with me since I was wearing them around earlier this week. Though you couldn't see it in the pictures from Sunday, the color of the leather looks a bit greenish in certain lights. So when I finished with the saddle, I turned on the boots. Just so you can compare old color vs. new color--
I recently found out that my parental units read this blog. You can imagine how disturbing this might be. I might need to start regulating comments to make sure they don't start commenting--yikes!
