Above is the real bit that I used for inspiration.
I finally got one shank of the bit that I'm working on finished. I worked on the second shank yesterday but didn't get it completed. I have a Model Horse Show to go to Tomorrow so today will be spent packing up horses and finally deciding what classes I'll enter. I rarely have any tack of my own to show with but tomorrow will be an exception. I'll be showing a halter and maybe Kay's roping set if I feel brave.
I recently updated Kay's bridle and tiedown with some interwoven knots. I think those pieces now look more realistic.
Here are just a few photos of what I've gotten done this week.
