One working pony says: "It's bad enough to pull a harness, but you. Suffocates a horse by pressure against the windpipe during strong draught. So I had a nice beta harness for my last driving pony (retired last spring). ""Buy the best quality dishes you can afford," advises Kate. To understand the function of the different parts of harnesses:

The Russell Family Model Horse & Equipment Museum

We made the 3-hour journey to Hartland, Maine last year to see Mrs. Winnie Russell and Philip Russell, the woman and boy of E.C. Russell, a man who amused and trained the North East of the USA with his travelling man. PHIPIP has constructed a beautiful monument in honour of his fathers.

I would like you to accompany me on a walk through this amazing little muse, but first let me tell you why this place and these people are so unique to me. At the age of twelve, already an enthusiastic horse hobbyist, I came across a large modified horse trailers at our exhibition.

There is a written notice on the page: "Come and look at the 40 horse couplings! "I carried my folks in, where an older man showed a series of carts and coaches, all drawn by Breyer cattle! At the heart of the touring exhibition was the 40-horse trailer screen in a showcase.

As I looked at all the cars, my father talked to the proprietor, Mr Clair Russell, and found that he had made every car and sewed every harness himself. The 40-horse Hitch was exhibited for the home cameraman in the 1990'. When he heard that I was a horse enthusiast, he asked my wife and daughter to come and see his garage in the forests of Central Maine.

Everywhere, from the blanket to the ground, were models, reels of strap, rolls of wires, timber in different conditions to carriages and more of them! Only recently I was acquainted with the show of models and the attendance in the studio of Mr. Russell altered the process of the collection in our hous.

He was a real wood worker, and while he and Clair were discussing how to rebuild cartwheels from the ground up, I began to think about making harnesses. The Russells' were packed in a case full of webbings, cable length, a case of clasps and 32 different porcelain designs, which he made from a tray in his shop, and we kept insisting that I have them for my pick.

It was barely before my father started to build his own version of horse gear based on Mr Russell's work. From a boyfriend I hired a companion for my Clyde stallion and started working on a set of harness while my mom started making clothes for the rider of the group.

This was our first preloaded trade fair appearance: It was a Haywagon that won five of the six categories in which we competed. Mr Russell took some of his songs to Camden next year on our invite to the Maine Live (Model Horse) Show, but after that we got out of contact with him.

Handing it over to a belt modeller encouraged me to get in touch with the Russells and tell them what influence they had on my and my whole life. Mr President, I found out that Mr Russell had died only a few years ago, but his woman and boy kindly asked us to come back and tell me that they had opened a small factory to show his work.

Russell's house was filled with reminders of this magic trip centuries ago. He was sorry to know that he no longer affectionately cuts leathers and wires into small shoes, but his woman Winnie shared the same affirmative energies and was a pleasure to speak to.

Long ago, the workshop had been transformed into an exhibition space for his work, and although it was now also used for general preservation, some of his works still seamed the wall, as did tens of photographs of him with different crews of genuine riders and Ponys. Thinking about each and every work and painting, I expected that this would be the main part of his remainder until Winnie frightened me by saying, "Are you willing to go to the Mummy now?

" When I saw the small house they had built in his honour, I was delighted to see that the items in their house were only a small part of his survival work. Accompany me on a guided walk through the Russell Family Model Horse & Equipment Muze!

At the heart of the school is a 40-horse coupling..... Forty Belgians (Blackhome Grandeur Lyn Release), four next to each other, with harness and boots, all made by Mr. Russell by handmade. It is twelve-foot long, which includes a circus caravan in basic style and two forerunners (on Zippo Pine Bar models) that flank it. Pictures of the genuine, world-famous 40-horse trailer are mounted on the backside.

He has always been a horse and historian, but the true 40-horse attachment was his greatest source of motivation, and photographs of it can be seen throughout the entire collection and in his stud. I had seen his 40 Horse hitches before, and although it was almost 25 years ago, I knew exactly that they had pulled 40 Roy styles, not from BGL.

I was right, Winnie said, and this was actually the SECOND 40-horse hitch he had made. When the glory of his originals was spreading in 2003, a collectors for the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida, made him an unacceptable proposal and bought the originals for several thousand US Dollar.

He and his boy had the whole thing covered in cushion foil, then a tarpaulin in black, and "secured it with a whole reel of tape," says Philip, who was then asked to drive it from Maine to Florida, two legs of which hung all the way over the stern.

Today it is in the Ringling Museum. By the time Philip came home from Florida in March, his dad had already completed this new exhibition after working on it all summer long! But he didn't like the Roy form, so although it was more like Dick Sparrow's 40-horse hitch, he decided to move to the Belgian he was into.

In order to really appreciate the work involved, look at this harness, and remind yourself that it was made by a man in the 70' s.... and then again 40 time! Verify that the outer reins of each horse are fixed to the track of the horse guiding it. While I don't see how this would work well in reality, it is an interesting and stylish piece of furniture, especially on this scale.

Philippe said that after the hook was fully assembled and fixed to the basis, Clair realised that he had forgot to steam it up! They took all forty of them from the basis, handcrafted all 160 of them, sealed them, put the boots on and then backed them up!

During his most notable work, the 40-horse hitch is only one of about 50 clutches exhibited in the Muzeum. It'?s an icecar. This is shown in a picture next to the car. Wooden tractor on its way to the forest and a sledge for transporting a whole house or supplying the local markets.

One John Deere dumper and two different cultivars, all handmade, together with parts of his Budweiser Clydesdales stone collections that adorn the Musée. Mr Russell engaged a native sewer to design clothes for many of his riders, most of whom were Breyer Alec puppets. Probably one of his early songs, the sled is very basic, but the harness shows the promises of tomorrow's champions!

This is a beautiful show car in the Budweiser Paradewagen design. Please have a look at the mounted picture of the "40" by Philip below. Tense ponies waiting for a cart. Probably some of his last dishes were now placed in a showcase under the "40. "Metallegge, all hand-made from aluminium stripes and hand-painted by Mr. Russell.

Horse would have reacted to speech signals, so the rein was only for emergency. A show car in Anheiser bush look, completed with Dalmatian and Adler logo. Trolley show and Hood's milks delivery vans, which have sliced with icecubes from Maine streams to keep the cream cool on the way to the houses in the area.

Wester Chuckwagon providing rations and provisions for a convoy of discoverers. Yes, he was not only allowed to see the genuine 40-horse hitch, he was also allowed to ride it. He was in training for a training session, on a pitch, and Philip says that he was so nervous that as a cameraman he took a whole role of movie with him when the coaches kept bringing the squad by....

A part of his work bench, along with some of his equipment and provisions, was brought to the factory, which is surrounded by a glass wall, as he would have liked. Now, in additon to his writing table, there are beside implements, cart wheel and different length of leathers and wires also picture galleries of his genuine ponies and his work.

It'?s a doctor's van. When Philip pointed to this horse, he said: "There are only two that I don't like in here. "However, it is one of the few non-pull ponies in the group. We have received this message from our long-time Senator Olympia Snowe to Mr. Russell.

It was only one of many thousand visitors to his mobile exhibition when he went to trade shows and school. It' now resting under the problems in the museum: It is written in the epistle of a talented handcrafted horse shoe..... Mr Russell made footwear for his couplings from aluminium wires, knocked them into form and gave them fingernail openings by heart.

In addition to being used on his show ponies, he kept a stock of pendants, which he often passed on to people. Upstairs, his only problem with Shire modeling. He made a little casket to hold, and Philip says that there really is a puppet in the casket!

Instead of being cruel, it is just another documentary of horsehood! Mr Russell even asked Frisians to work. The dude draws a V-Plow with blades. It' like a plough cart of today, just horse power! This is a skip lorry, very useful on farm for everything from removing rocks (stone walls ) to applying liquid slurry.

This is a champions pulling crew, probably at a trade show, getting ready to draw its sleigh with concrete mass. Above: Delivery van with the inscription "Heu und Getreide" below: The top is labelled "Jigger Wagon". Downstairs is a car bringing home food from the grocery shop. There' s a nice little blueshow car waiting for a crew.

Hopefully it will get the prestressed Wixoms shown at the beginning! In the past, Maine was known for its pulp and paper mill, which "at the time" depended on horse-drawn carriages to fetch wood from the forests and transport it to the mill (or river) for process. They had their own tableware store to keep the turnaround in good condition.

They have a copy (the originals are kept securely in an air-conditioned room) of the harness plan from this harness store in the school. As John pointed it out and shouted: "Hey, there are no ponies in there! "This is a wood reproduction of Philip's trucks, made by Clair, the only non-equine item on show in the collection, and you can see that he has put as much loving work into it as all his other items.

It is a marvelous homage to this unbelievable performer. Philip, his own handicraftman. He also writes "Russell Family Model Horse Museum". Many thanks to Winnie Russell and Philip for the invitation to their houses and the visit of the school.

Clair's diligence and craftsmanship document in 3-D the dates on which we counted on him. They will be maintained with the caring and loving attention of his familiy in order to educate and inspire the next horse lover population.
