Transporting pipe by horse team

Title

Transporting pipe by horse team

Description

Three 4-horse teams each transporting a single large metal tube (pipe). The team of horses is hitched to a two-wheel, single axle. This would be like the typical front wheel section of a horse drawn wagon. A draw bar from this set of wheels connects a rear set of wheels to suspend and transport the large pipe. The drive sits on top of the leading edge of the pipe to guide the horses.
