Yeah, the ones the Gypsies used. That , I think, is why the horses are called Gypsy Vanners. It is going to be fantastic!!

It looks like its going to be amazing when its finished - I love that these traditions are being kept alive
When I was a teenager and visited my Grandfather in Ireland I sometimes had a pony on loan from a man in Cork who used to hire out Gypsy Caravans complete with horse for people wanting a different sort of holiday

When I worked in the restoration of library materials, that was only a small aspect of the restoration work that took place. There were many retirees working there just for the love of it, and the paycheck was nice. The wheelrights were in their 70's and at the time they were few and far between. They were afraid it was dying out. The restoration work done on the carriages were works of art.

yes it's a real shame even a simple thing like a local harness repairer is like looking for rocking horse poop.i got that sick of finding and then waiting for bits coming back,I paid to go on a week long course,just to teach myself basic repairs,best money I ever spent

Too bad I didn't know as I could have helped you with that. Glad you found someone to teach you. I'm looking for a good used harness, breast plate style. Our weather has been so cold and windy I don't want to be outside long enough to get a few measurements. I think we've had a record snowfall and we've a ways to go yet.
