I've talked at some length with Dave by phone, and have e-mailed him pictures of the boys from different angles, have mailed him the updated back tracings - it's interesting to see the changes in the boys' shape from 9 months ago as their top lines have developed - and I took a few more photos of the boys with the About the Horse saddle my trainer uses sitting on them without a pad and uncinched so Dave can see the clearances with the #2 tree that saddle has.
Here is a set of pictures of Pie - the flare at the front of the saddle is easy to see on him:
And here is Drifter - the saddle fits him more closely in the shoulders but there's still adequate clearance:
So, the process is getting underway, and I'm pretty excited (but then I'm saying that a lot these days)!
Now for a completely gratuitous picture of the two youngest barn kitties at Heather's place, nestled on my Diamond Wool pad:
