This is one of two sheep wagons. This wagon required little restoration, as it had been well preserved by a covering that was put over it many years ago. Contents are authentic, including the bed (but with modern mattress), stove, benches, pull-out table, track lamp, shelf, and towel racks. End walls originally were canvas, but Greg replaced with wood because he liked the way it looked.
Greg Hisey: "This wagon came from the Capser ranch, Capser, (near) Harlowton, Montana. (The ranch) went from Harlowton to Rygate. Bill Capser was 82 years old when I got this wagon."
The wagon was used until about 1939, when the Second World War cut off the ranch's supply of Basque sheep herders. The Studebaker running gear dates to 1896."
