Does Anyone Recognize This Manufacturer?

Just curious about the maker of this cutter. I don't know who had it before, just that it's been sitting in a barn for over fifteen years until it was sold to my grandfather. I can't seem to find anything about the manufacturer. It's a WM. Anderson made in Wooler, ON.

I've typed everything I could think of into google and came up dry. I don't even know where I'd start with books! Thank you, yes it was a lot of fun. First time they've been hooked up to the cutter!

I would contact Carson's. Auction houses are a wealth of information. They'll know something about the manufacturer. Nice setup.

Beautiful!!!!! Makes me want to be there.


You might the Carriage Association of America. they might be able to help or send you in the right direction.

What kind of horses are those? They look very nice with the sleigh.
Any side photos?

Thanks Taffy, I'll try them!
Haha, those two have a bit of a funny story. They were in a herd of about 30 to 40 horses. All of them were pretty much raised like beef cows, with numerous stallions running around. Never had a halter on them, never had any kind of human contact, until my grandfather bought them. They're half brothers, their names are Bill and Ben. I see quite a bit of Shetland in them. They're only about 10, maybe 11 hands.

Never would have thought they were Shetlands, Thought they were Fiord crosses. They are darling. Amazing that they went from never being handled to driving, Good Job to Grandpa!

Yeah, it's just my unprofessional guess, virtually they could be anything. Hm, yes darling, their looks are deceiving, they're naughty little buggers!
