This weekend is the Yearly Horse drawn Auction & Swap Meet at the Sister's Rodeo Fairgrounds
For yrs i have people that come and stay here at the motel, but i have never gone, so I decided it was a good time to catch some great stuff from the old days. So I will be posting some old and unusual rigs and equipment. Cost $5 to park,I had no intention of buying anything just taking photos, oh well what we won't do to take a photo right?

Sitting on what looks to be a circa 1870 fifth-wheel running gear a beautiful Gypsy-style Circus Cage Wagon with complete and operable cage.Though it looks to be over a 130 yrs old, the gear is solid. Also looks to be original paint. This wagon belonged for a time to Twentieth Century Fox and was used in the movies Escape from Planet of the Apes.
