    Default Small Farmer's Journal Horse Drawn Equip Auction, Madras, OR

    April 13th through the 16th, 2011

    There's a plowing match, and they'll be selling tons of harness, vehicles, collectibles, rust garden pieces, farm equipment, horses and mules.

    Some of the consignments are pictured on the site, but I don't find any of the horses or mules yet. There are a number of cross country war wagons, and sometimes you can get some outstanding buys on these vehicles because the bulk of the bidders are farmer-types. The people watching is as interesting as the auction itself.

    Typically there are some lovely vehicles from a company in Canada, and other builders, usually including some wagonettes and people-haulers as well as two-wheel carts. There's at least one chuck wagon (new) consigned, and a new hearse, plus at least a couple of stagecoaches.

    With the economy as it is, there will likely be some good deals if you have anything to spend.

    There's always a lot of harness from Midwest, both leather and biothane, various draft styles and carriage type. Last year there was a spectacular set of 8 draft show harness with scotch collars. I don't recall what they brought, but it was nowhere near what this very nice set cost.

    Very cool! Thanks for sharing! I've heard great things about this auction, and I wish I had the means to go. Maybe another year.
