Looking down on one of our hay meadows from atop a molehill

Their is still some to cut if it dries out enough.

Looking at another meadow from the same hill

At the Miles City Saddlery

Lots of nifty old time Miles City Coggshall saddles

An interesting design

Quite a collection

At a wedding reception. I happened to go see the saddlery while the wedding was in progress, but it was fun catching up with everyone at the reception. :wink:

Peach and her mother

The lady on the left is the groom's grandmother. Her husband was the brother of Peach's mother (far right) and the lady in the middle.

Another old Miles City Coggshall saddle

The off side

Custom made to order for someone

A number three in the decorative tooling

It even has the original mohair cinch and cinch cover that came with the saddle when it was new.

Soap, you were pretty close to the country I call home when you were in Miles City.

It looked like it has been a good summer in the Miles City area. There was a lot of hay visible from the highway, and there appeared to be much grazing still available. Sure looks like idea ranch country in your neck of the woods.

That is quite the collection at the Saddlery. I always enjoy taking a peek when ever I get to Miles City. :D

You better go to bed. It's getting late. :wink:

Just got home from a corn feed in Montana. :D

I just got home from the Cody Fireman's Smoker. The breaded mountain oysters were fantastic. Hope my toes don't turn up from founder. :wink:

I'm about 45 miles northeast of Miles. We've had about double our normal moisture for the year so far. Its still greener here than around Miles. I've put up almost 3X my normal hay crop but after last winter everybody is putting up all the hay they can and hoping we don't have to feed all of it this winter.
