    Default My collection

    I love harnesses and vehicles and am happy to see this new section. I make harnesses, but making any sort of cart or wagon is way beyond me so it will be nice to meet some wagon makers.
    Here are some photos of my collection. All harnesses made by me (except the two sets of Scotch peak show collars which were made by Tiki Kulp... one of these days I'll get around to making the rest of the harnesses.)
    Here is a Breyer Meadowbrook cart and Country Gig. The rest of these vehicles were all made by D&H, who I believe is no longer in business.

    Very nice! I used to pleasure drive an ASB mare and then bred her. Her son was her double. So I had a team I drove to a 8 seat Wagonette. We would drive all day unhook the horses for lunch and then head back. Not a wagon train type of drive. We would move out. Really enjoying this thread.

    Beautiful collection and gorgeous work. I particularly like the russet harnesses... Not sure why they stand out so much to me; perhaps because you don't see them as often, and in the real world, keeping them clean and stain-free is so difficult that seeing one means someone cares to keep it in good condition, making it really special. Lovely!

    Beautiful work and lovely collection of vehicles and horses!
    These give me such a pleasant nostalgic feeling while I look at them. I have not been around equines very much in real life, and I have been on very few equine pulled vehicles, but they conjure up memories of the few times I have been around equines. I especially remember the horse-drawn hayrides at some of the local farms around here. They put decorations out for Halloween, and the wagons (usually tractor pulled, now) go around the decorations and field of corn. I think of the smell of dust, grass, and horse (much much more pleasant than the smell of diesel exhaust from tractors or trucks), the sun warming my shoulders, the breeze riffling my hair, the gentle, sometimes bumpy, swaying of the vehicle. The world going quiet around us with nothing disturbing it except the steady clopping of hooves, the creaking of wood and leather, the equine's breathing, and whatever bird happens to be around. I get warm and fuzzy thinking about it.
