There are a number of modelers worldwide building horse carts in different shapes and sizes.

Recently I photographed Horse Harness which I thought might be useful for future projects.

regards to all

When it comes to the horse logging from the wood areas, and farm horses you posted a gem there. Thanks!

I'm sure I've got more "Happy Snappy's" stored somewhere in my library to upload one day in the future.

No Mario, I had not seen that link before. I do appreciate you providing it for me. Thanks again! [:-thumbu]

Hey Mario,

I see you've been "horseing around" lately!
Thanks for the update.

This brings back memories. When I was in High School our family moved to a farm. In the old barn was some old harness. There was enough good leather that we were able to put together a working set. Dad was in a slow season at work so to make a little extra money he decided to do some logging (pulp wood) with a work horse. Jerry was a great horse to work with and I would ride him at times too. I could swing up onto his back maybe 1 out of 4 times. Usually I'd climb on a gate to get aboard. I learned not to get on him when it was raining though, his back held water!

Yes, that is me when I still had hair.

Kevin, that looks a lot like the harness we had with my Shire/Morgan gelding, Jim. Our singletree had been welded up using a 2" pipe crossbar and 1/2" bar for the loops & eyes.
