In 1991 I had 10 brand new pack saddles made by Art Heiden of Kalispell MT! I was sure proud of them . They had Ray Holes trees the finest on the market . But I didn’t get 1/4 breeds . I was worried the half breeds would wear out so Jerry Ryder showed up with this huge old reject roll of carpet from the Park . I can still see him cutting out these 1/4 breeds on the lawn . It was just about this time before hunting season. Well they lasted until Jeremiah in the late 90s built me a couple dozen pack saddles and he built leather 1/4 breeds . I am still using them . Well this spring I bought a few old pack saddles that I sold from Susan Kennedy in Idaho . Low and behold two of them had this same old carpet on them from when Jerry put it on. 27 years later . They endured . Just a little nostalgia from the good old days. Respectfully Warren
