Slow Progress.. sooo busy

Above is my progress on my western pleasure saddle that I realize now, I've been working on for over a year.  I'm so slow.. but I work when I have time, which isn't often now.  The new job is so challenging and really great but takes a lot of my time.  Big learning curve but I'm pushing myself so I'm happy :)

Akhal Teke Guest Breed Weekend at the KHP 2013















Yesterday I was able to get to the Kentucky Horse park early enough to get a few good photos of the Akhal Tekes that came to visit from all over the United States. (TX, WA and IN).  They were filming a "Horse Flicks" special on endangered Breeds.  I had been following the idea on the Akhal Teke Yahoo group so I was looking forward to this Saturday for some time!

I have watched the Akhal Teke Episode that was filmed in 2006 and funny enough, I appear in the video while petting the stallion Pieter. (Totally embarrassed when I saw it! LOL!)

The Tekes this year didn't disappoint!  Even better, the sun was out so their coats lit up with that legendary sheen!

I only remember a few of the horse's names because I was so excited about being there. (Even dropped and broke my favorite canon lens due to being so excited)

There will be a lot more photos up on my website www.abounaderphoto.com after I get through them all.  Above are just a few that I was able to tweak and get up really quickly..

Just in case I haven't shared this yet, I am on several forms of social media:

Soooo Soorrryyyy!!!!








So sorry that this blog has suffered!  I've been exceptionally busy and I apologize for that.  I have gotten a raise and a promotion at work which comes with more responsibility and work.

Every weekend for the past month I've been swamped with either work or a horse show..  and I am still playing pool on sundays.  I'm more busy than I've ever been in my life and I have no idea when it'll calm down!!!

Precious little time has been spent in the studio...  Just working with my GRS block and my dremel graver, which I hate.  My hand hates it too.  I'm hoping that I can find a better engraving solution than the ones that I'm presented right now.

And I'm tired.  I'm deep down tired... so I haven't posted a lot. 

The Photos above are from the Arabian Celebrationi a couple of weeks ago.  I took about 3k photos but I haven't gone through them yet.

I hope things are good in your neck of the woods!!
