Garth Brooks song that the thread subject begged for
Last thing I remember was saying,
"Hey y'all, watch this." Next thing I know I'm walking toward this light
When a voice from out of nowhere asked this question.
"Garth, what did you love most in your past life?"
"Well," I said, "it had to be between cowgirls and horses."
And as I wondered which one that I would settle on,
The voice said, "May you be happy with your answer."
I said, "What answer?" He said, "Watch this." And I was gone.
Now I'm back as a cowgirl's saddle
Heaven on Earth for all eternity
Forever in between
Every cowboy's dream
Riding horses, holding rodeo queens
Sew me, show me, throw me in the pickup
Take me, break me, make me what you need
It's safe to say we're made for one another
And you'll never fall if you just stick with me
Fit me, sit me, get me how you want me
Wrap me, SLAP ME, STRAP ME ON YOUR STEED.
Can't believe I'm out here flying with an angel
Oh this afterlife's sure looking up for me
I'm under the impression that saddles are like a fine wine.
My buddy just turned pro and said he had about 20,000miles on his saddle (in less than 2 year)... but his new team is sponsored by a different brand and he will be forced to switch saddles, much to his dismay. he claims it was "nicely broken in." I think the lesson is, if you take care of your saddle, it will take care of you for MANY miles.
