Hello every body. I just bumped off Grumpy on his post but I will just go ahead and wish every body a very Merry Christmas. If that won’t work for you how about Happy Hannakah, or Happy Holidays. I’m not on this site as much anymore...

I used to operate 2 businesses in my shop in Jordan Valley, Oregon; Thos. Angle Saddlery and Owyhee Design. For many years I ranched and built saddles on the side. I also built furniture as I needed it. I always wanted to see what would happen if I combined the two. That is what I was doing at Owyhee Design. I used carved leather in door panels and as inlays in mirrors and table skirts. I still built the occasional custom saddle as well as chinks and tack. I also built custom kitchens and about anything else that came along. I designed all the various things I built. The economy ended the business in 2008. In March of 2009, I moved to North Central Wyoming to work for the Padlock Ranch. I sold off all my machinery and kept only hand tools and the saddle shop.
In February, 2010, the job with the Padlock ended. We have now returned to our home in Jordan Valley. Since then I have spent my summers working for Snake River Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and entertaining.
