Another from my last trip to Route 66. It has been sitting outside at the end of the building where it faced Route 66 watching trains go by. Been there many times and never knew this section of the store existed. Apparently no one else does as everything is coated with a thick coating of mother road desert dust.
Anyway it is a horse collar hame or possibly hames (or hanes). Anyway it is the wooden horse harness thing seen in many antique stores.
I am not normally into the arts and crafts repurposing thing but this is made out of such good stuff. Barbed wire and cobalt blue bottles are a great combination with this.
The last photo is its new place under the deck in front of the house. The desert dust will probably get washed off as there is a bit more precipitation up here.
