Goat Horns

Goat Horns

Description:

On each horn are four rings varying in distances from the base, the distances diminishing closer to the base. The horns lay beside Meager Creek, part of the skeleton that had lain there for a considerable time. In August 1975, T. Fougberg picked them up. Because no logging roads had yet reached the area at the hot spring, Eldon Talbot flew in the Fougbergs and members of the Priest family.

The seat is a piece of plank with strips of lighter board on the back and on both ends. Secured by two metal straps screwed to the seat area is an elevated back rest. The wheels have metal tires and wooden spokes ; back wheels are larger than the front set. Tied to the wooden back axle and at right angles to it are two sets of metal leaf springs. The front spring is parallel to the front axle. A reach connects the two axles Condition: In general, all metal is rusted. The wheels are disintegrating. 2) [October 2013] - this wagon was rebuilt in 2011 including the box and the wheels. The wheels were constructed by a wheelwright from Armstrong BC.
