This is a used loose cheek dog bone snaffle bit made by long time bit and spur maker Keith Welling from Crawford, Nebraska. It is marked KW inside one cheek piece. Keith has been building bits since the 1960’s and his bits are popular with working cowboys. Keith is listed in Old Cowboy Saddles & Spurs by Gretchen and Mike Graham. The bit is steel with a natural patina. It is mounted with engraved nickel silver conchos and the silver stripes are inlaid on the cheek pieces. It is not bent, broken, or repaired. The bit has seen some use but it still has a lot of life left in it.
