Episode 106: More to this Saddler

July 25, 2021

Jussy chats with Kingstons Rural Supplies Tinana Resident Saddler, Gary Buzzer.  Podcasts are always unscripted and pretty much unplanned, so there is always the element of surprise in how the conversation will go.  This chat was no different.  I learned that Ferret's may wear masks, goats may need chastity belts, whips are made by a whipmaker, not a saddler.   Take a listen to Gary "Buzzer" as he explains the dying trade of Saddlemaking.
