California Draft Horse Sale

Once again the California Draft Horse semi-annual sale in Tulare, California had something for everyone.  Only walked thru the indoor sale barn, wish I had enough light to have taken some pictures.  It's like everyone in California cleaned out there old barn, attic, back 40 and brought it to the auction.  There were also a lot of well trained horses, riding horses, teams pulling wagons, new wagons for sale, new parts to build or repair wagons, old wagon parts and farm equipment.  This is a 3 day event held every November and April at the Tulare County Fairgrounds.

Need a new buggy.......?

Nice team of horses ................................. ?

An old carriage for a wedding .............?

Old wagon, milk can, tractor seat...................?

and many more items, old plows, manure spreader, grinders,
hand tools, bird house, tin bath tub, you name it they have it,
if you don't find it, wait and come back in 6 months and
you can probably fine it.

Only problem is sometimes other items are lumped together,
last year I bought a couple of single trees, and got a cow
stanchion too, guess I will make a hanging planter out
of the cow stanchion.
