    Interesting on those vehicles behind the cattle, having the piece on the outside of the wheels. Used on both wooden (older) wheels and the car tired wagon. Wonder if the purpose is bracing for strength?

    Those folks look pretty poor, so any animal power has to help in moving things and not costing money for fuel.
