I thought I'd seen it all, until I saw 'ride em cowboy,' from Neil!

 

I'm wondering if there are any better pictures of this gang of W/H tractors?

 

It would also be good to know if this fleet was just stationary or did all this actually move?  If it did move, how did they do it and how was it controlled?  Was just one tractor running and the others were just being pulled?

 

I wish I could read what the stage coach wagon says on it, I can see that it reads Wheel Horse, but I can't make out what the rest says.

 

This is super great stuff!!! :)

here also a piece of history 5 years ago I visited the toro factory in belgium the wheel horse factory started in 1968 on the first picture you see a piece of the old lodge of the horse the rest of the logo and the name has disappeared because there is annex building. the next photo is one of the last models to build a 416 toro export version

That is really something to see - years ago I had no idea that Wheel Horse had another factory outside of the US , great pictures.

Can't remember his name, but a machine shop owner in Kewanee has a six-horse team pulling a stage coach in a parade in one of the facebook threads. I'd look for it, except I've been Locked out for for not having my picture in the I.D. info. Trying to thin out members ?????  Dunno.

I think that's the same guy that hits some of the parades - not totally sure. FB has gotten weird, I'm about to un-install it completely.

 

Love the vintage pics, btw.
