I finally found a cart that I both liked and could afford! I decided I ought to make a journal as this sure is going to be a journey.
I got it for a steal (as far as I know) at $230! I was told it didn't need any work at all but once I arrived I could tell it needed a little bit. There is a slight split in the very tip of the shaft, it needs re-finished and new bearings. But nothing that I can't handle as far as I'm aware.
I'm definatley no expert on fit, I'm not sure how far from the shafts the horse is supposed to be, how far their butt should be from the front of the cart ect.. I know that the shafts should be about level all the way to the shoulder, and when setting them on buckets at about her shoulder height they are close to level. Does it look okay? I don't have harness yet so can't hook her up to it.
I plan to start sanding tomorrow.. I have big plans for this little cart. Basically my journal will at first be about re-finishing this cart, refreshing Bunny's driving and learning myself and other adventures we get to go on now.
You can expect a ton of pictures!
