Thank-you Jeepngirl, I like it too! I think I have all the measurements still for a one horse sled, a person could just scale it down for a smaller horse/pony, if you would like them.
Also we had the shafts made at a welding shop, probably the most expensive part of the whole sled, and if I was doing it again I would have had them made with a shorter curve. The runners were made out of green treated wood. Everything else was combination of reg. pine wood and plywood, painted with a paint made for metal which was recommended to me by a painter. I sanded it first with a rough sandpaper, put one coat on, then lightly sanded it again with a smaller grain and put a second coat on. Altogether I put three layers on... So far, in the second year, nothing has faded or rusted, but the iron that we shod on the bottom of the wood runners, which isn't a big deal.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again
