Am in the process of and eventually will make contact with folks with teams of horses in the area/region. There is no way on this green earth that we are going to get and care for horses. For now it will be pulled with the mule and the special hitch. Mostly parades and threshing bees and the like. Not too many petroliana events around. Hopefully I'll be able to take it to It's a gas in 2018.

Like a blast from the past.... or a bad penny, here we are again! In the last chapter, we were going to have the tank wagon lettering and striping hand painted. The painter wanted to do this at his location, so we had to buy the enclosed trailer before this painting. Special order, couple of months or so later it came. Take the wagon to him and a couple of months later it came back. Also had some valves brass plated and other brass polished/sealed. Have been to a couple of threshing bees and about 3 parades. Made contact with super nice folks down by Clarinda that have Shire horses. Don't know who was more excited about mating the horses and the wagon! So it was finally pulled by horses. Over three years later and this project is finally completed. So many positive comments about this from all kinds of folks. Looking forward to coming to It's a Gas this February.
