The Old Shepherd’s Wagon

IMG 0076

I've posted photos of this old abandoned shepherd's wagon before on my blog. It's a  sad reminder of days gone by. It sits on a property that adjoins our land on one side (the land is now for sale). It's a shame that the property owners have not only let their property fall into ruin, but this old relic as well. It's worthy of preservation, but sadly it has now fallen even further into ruin than it was on our last visit. At this point it can't be brought back to its former glory.

I like to think of the cowboy or cowgirl it once housed as they traveled with their flock of sheep or herd of cattle over the high prairie. Think of the stories it could tell!

The roof is caving in and there is now a skylight where there once was none.

It's wheels no longer turn over the sage-covered hills.

It has come to rest on this spot overlooking the territory it used to roam, dreaming of days gone by when it lived a useful life.

I found this blog entry about an old shepherd's wagon which has photos of what a nicely restored one looks like, both inside and out. If you are interested, follow this link.
