In a One Horse Open Sleigh
I had always planned to clean up this cute little cutter and put it in the parlor in front of the windows. However, we could never get the second big door open and it languished up in the building.
It doesn't look like I am ever going to get around to that job, so the boss took it over to the auction to sell this Saturday. If you are interested, get there early....
It belonged to his dad...he is said to have bought it for ten dollars from some people he did grounds keeping for.
We kept the bells, and if I can get somebody to ring them while I take video, you will soon get to hear them. They are the mellowest, most sweet-sounding sleigh bells I have ever heard. I have them in the kitchen right now and I jingle them several times a day just for the sheer enjoyment of it. I can just see it spanking down a snowy road with a little bay horse in front....and those bells making merry for all who could hear as it passed by.
