Mingo's Old Saddle


I was going through my old e-mails, and I found the photos of Mingo's saddle that I sent off to Japan for verification--and much to my joy, there was Pollie, the best dog ever, that passed away in the summer.  I sure do miss her.  I call our new dog, Maggie, "Not-the-Pollie."

Anyway, back to the saddle.  I bought it at an estate sale and got it fixed so I could use it.  Turns out it is a Japanese military saddle from WWII.  It is so comfortable, and it was the only saddle that Mingo was happy with. 

It is now Cruiser's saddle.  It is too easy to come off of, so I don't dare use it with Cole for a while.

That is sooo cool that you have a WWII saddle! Wow!

Pollie is such a cutie. I like your nickname for Maggie. It reminds me of the Dinosaur show when I was a kid where the baby hit his dad on the head and said "Not the momma!" I loved that silly show. :)
