powerrabbit Posted March 22, 2007 Report Share Posted March 22, 2007 Horese drawn farm equipment seems to have been overlooked a little and in earlier times Britain's and other manufacturers produced some lovely models from pre-tractor days in hollow-cast lead and diecast. I know that a few pictures of these have been posted elsewere on here but here are a few from my collection. Up first is the 8F Farm Rake, Horse & Driver from 1955. This one has the solid drivers seat, the pre-war issue had holes in the seat. This one is the 4F Tipping Tumbrel Cart With Horse from 1955. (Should have a farm hand as well, I will find one sometime). The tailboard lifts out. Next is the 45F Farm Cart & Horse from 1955. This cart has a board bottom which can be 'knockd out'. This one is 9F Horse & Roller from 1955. It also should have a farm hand. The first of these rollers had a solid roller, this is the second type having seperate 'rings. This last pic is of three lead hollow-cast horses from the same period showing some variations. There are still loads of these horses about and in good condition. These can be found for as little as ?1 each and are not difficult to re-paint. Horses with holes each side are for the carts etc, horses with additional holes each side of their mouth are ploughing horses, subtle difference but important if building up a set.
