Two Vintage Single Whippletrees - $8 (Scarborough)

An interesting conversation piece and a wonderful addition to a rustic decor either inside or in the garden. They would also work as unique plant holders, holding a hanging plant pot at each end.
Two are available. They are each 30" long and are authentic, having seen many years of use on the farm. They have not been refinished.
Asking $8 each or $15 for the two.
Whippletrees (also called whiffletrees) were used in pioneer days when a horse was pulling a plough, harrow or canal boat. The whippletree, a horizontal wooden bar, was used between the horse and its load. The centre of the bar was connected to the plough
and the traces were attached to the ends. The whippletree balanced the pull from each side of the horse and kept the traces from pulling in on the sides of the horse.
No delivery. Must be picked up Warden/Sheppard area of Scarborough. Ad will be removed when sold.
