This isn't really a completed MOC although I have since finished the cart itself, but I thought people might be interested in it anyway.
I know little of horsery (I'm certainly no horserer) but I needed a large cart for a scene and I was sick of just sticking a couple of horses on a hinged beam.
I set out to find 12 century carts and harness with little luck; for the cart I'm looking at 13th century illustrations from the Maciejowski Bible (like this one
), but besides the horse collar (an important discovery, it seems), the illustrations don't show much of the hitching.
Thankfully, I found a modern illustration from a book I've never read and don't know the reliability of. So there you go.
In short, it's my attempt at what seems to be a historically accurate harness for two horses pulling a cart, from 12th century Europe. I plan to use it as a supply cart in a small MOC or scene depicting a raid of the Anarchy
. It's just an awful lot of fiddly string, tiny knots and a few technic liftarms. Inverted tyres for the collars. It's not very swooshable but I think it looks nice. c:
