    I made this last night following the instructions from an article on hobby farms.com. I bought the webbing, rings and clips from ace hardware for 48.00 and used felted wool bits that I had around. It turned out great! Now I'll have to start on a cart

    That's so cool you could make it yourself. Could you use an ordinary sewing machine? I have a super cheap little machine, and wonder if it would be able to handle harness material. Probably not.

    Darn. Now I'm going to have to make one too. How long did it take you to make this? I'm always having to haul stuff around the homestead, and my doe loves to go for browse walks. So why not kill two birds with one stone. Besides, she eats the tree prunings, she outa' haul them to her pen:)

    I started the harness in the evening and finished up some hand sewing up the next morning. I have a new (expensive ) sewing machine so I thought I'd put it thru its paces. It really was fairly easy to do and since I put each piece together, it's simple to put on and understand how it should fit. I think any machine could see through the strap material, it's the bulky padding that's tuff. I will find the instructions and post a link
