    I guess there's no turning back now. I welded the hooks onto the singletree, and the cart is done. Thanks for the input.

    From now on I will only buy cars that are a silver/grey color. Then I can make all body repairs with Duct Tape.

    Just out of curiosity, how much did you pay for the cart? I'm wondering how much I saved (if any)by building my own.

    Thanks. Yours sounds nice. Mine is likely much heavier than yours. That's not always a good thing for a horse cart. The intent was to have a heavy duty cart for training our cart horses. Where I built this one, the plan is that I can repair it in the event of an accident. One runaway team did about $1200 damage to my Dad's show quality wagonette. My whole family is a little shy now about hitching unproven horses to anything nice.

    Fun!!

    I was tempted to get into minis, but I like riding too much, and I don't have room for more than a few horses. By driving my saddle horse I can ride when I want, or I can drive them when I want.
