Need Help Identifying Eveners’ Function

Reader Contribution by Ken Larsen

I’ve enclosed a photo of a set of eveners (or doubletrees) for a team of horses or mules. They were bought at an auction west of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. What implement would they have been used on? One man said it would have been from a plow. However, I do not understand that. The only guess I have is, it might be from a seed drill. This is the only implement that I’ve been unable to understand how it was hooked on.

The crescent-shaped piece at the top measures 9-1/2 inches wide; each long piece connecting to it measures 18 inches long. Each of the two horizontal pieces at the bottom measures 29 inches long.
