We bought about ten acres at auction and found these harness and sadle laying in the pasture

Great find. Most the hames and collars are art worthy at this point but the fly net may still be fine.

The pictures are so tiny. How can I view them larger? I clicked on one of them, and my computer froze.
Is it my computer/system that's the issue?

Hi Kate. I think it may be your setup. Please email us your specs: browser and operating system versions. Thanks.

Bret i realize they are junk i was just posting pics of what we found not 20 feet from the barn . I dont know what all is there i just came up on it while cleaning up around the barn but i see 4 collars, hames , one saddle , fly net and some harness
Just a shame they didnt throw all the trash out of the barn instead of these items
Years ago they had horse auctions at this property

Take off the hames and clean them up but don't remove the patina. Make horse collar and hame mirrors, clocks, and other art. I have found old harness to be quite valuable up-cylced in to art.

I like to cut the buckles and heel chains out. I have several sets of heel chains with connectors cut out of old harness. I use it when hooking to various implements. Sometimes you need an extra link or 2.
