Thanks Royce,

That was what I thought but I wanted a second opinion. I updated the design and resulting builder accordingly.

Looks like a lenticular truss to me. Appears the upper and lower chords are connecting half way up the end post.

I think this is a Lenticular pony based on the inner members but there's a chance its a Parker. Any thoughts?
