I found this piece of horse-drawn equipment in a barn near my home. It looks like some kind of dirt slip, but I can't find anyone who knows for sure what it was used for or who may have made it and when. It's in excellent condition and shows just a trace of red paint on the wooden pieces. I'd sure like to hear from anyone who knows something about this piece. Knowing what it is would sure make me look better when I take it to the Power of the Past show this fall. Thanks for the help.
