December 3, 2020

The first snow storm of 2020 dumped about 18 inches of snow on us. I snapped this picture during a short lull as I scraped some of it away. Here we go!

The wet weather followed by the big snow storm, allowed me time to work in the shop. I have been reworking an old pony wagon. I am switching it over for one horse to pull. I will use it to train my stallion. I can hook a tire behind it to add more weight when needed too. I think it will be a handy size for all sorts of jobs.

I had to make tire repairs and I switched the seat to this old school bus seat. I next forged the decorative buckboard rail to add some function. I hope it keeps stuff from rolling off. I forged the rails and made the brackets. Our grandson, visiting from Montana, welded the rails and brackets together. Then we installed them on the wagon.

Now…to just get the colt trained to pull it! He is doing well, so he should be pulling it soon.
