    Did our fall works last weekend. Lots of leather to see. It was my new fillies first time gathering. She did great:

    These two bulls are half brothers a year apart:

    Our daughter Ally was helping mom take attendance:

    Our friends Tyler and Mary K were helping:

    I'd recently just sold George one of my horses to Mary K and they were getting along fine. In fact on our last circle in the late afternoon Tyler and I were sitting down in a bowl in the mountians waiting to take a group of cattle out once the folks on our sides were in place. We watched Mary K across the canyon and way up on a far ridge go after a group of cattle and trail them up and over the ridge. Tyler says to me "I don't know how much ya sold George for, but ya should of got more." We didn't see Mary K again for a couple hours but there she was down at the water with about 20 head. Got in with the last group after riding three circles on tired ponies with tired riders. We only had about 6o percent of the cattle. Brother Bill our ranch cook had warm taco soup for us. Just right. Next morning he was gonna do breakfast for us.

    Ally using Lil Sis, my filly, bringing George back from watering.

    Thanks!

    But wouldn't ya know it? Breakfast had to wait. There were cattle down on the flat! Got my crew horseback. I loaned Ally Lil Sis cause her gelding was still stoved up from the hard day before. and here they come. Today (Saturday) we had additional help as Logan, my son and his wife Katie were able to come. He'd had to work the day before (cowboyin') so couldn't be with us. He also brought part of "The Wolfpack", three of the ten. We were ready:

    Still missing a few. There they up on Hat Hill up behind the corrals. Logan and Tyler long trot on up there. They got em! Bringing em in:

    They tried to make a break for it right at the corrals but Jane put an end to that idea:

    Dave as always you bring the west back to us, really appreciate it too.

    this is a folder sheath I just finished up for my Rough Ryder Reserve Whittler large solid knife that benefits the use of belt carry. I used a new embossing stamp I just got to represent the year 2020, seemed appropriate:)

    too kind sir, thank you. on things I make I do like to keep them trim and slim as possible, the forming of that sheath around the swell centered handle takes time to keep working the leather until you take the stretch out of it and that helps in keeping the retention better. As the sheath is being formed and as it dries, I put the knife in and use a bone folder to press/stretch the leather around the knife, usually every half hour or so as it goes through the drying process.

    Here is a few I just finished up, both from HI. One a western style bowie and the other a Vala. The Vale reminds me of Sting from Lord of the rings. The Bowie we did kinda plain with just some stamping. The Vala we did a sash style carry with a wrap retention strap, some stamping and matting and finished it off with some beaver tail accents at the base and a small diamond shape holding the retention stud on. Hope ya like them.
