Under Construction 2016
|The common 'plough' block eye style, with the 'wire' bit removed.|
|The 'Scotch Pattern' eyeblock winkers, showing the 'wire' bit. These
have been ornamented for show purposes, but were made in Scotland circa
1904 as part of a set of pair show plough harness.
The 'wire' bit is not really wire, but made from 1/4" rod.,
and was the common style of jointed bit on many old winkers.
|A 'delivery' style of winkers, with square eye blocks and ornaments for the show ring. This bit is a two-ring Wilson snaffle.|
|A small pair of 'hatchet-eye' style winkers suitable for a sulky pony or light horse.|
