Carriage Journal magazine


Please forgive this super-quick post today. The March issue of The Carriage Journal is finished (yaaaay) and at the printer. And now I need to go run some errands (and pack) before leaving insanely early tomorrow for our fourth CAA/CWF International Carriage Symposium. Look for symposium updates here and on Twitter starting tomorrow evening.

And my other good reason for leaving a bit early? The fire-alarm folks are testing our alarms at the moment. Eeek!

We’ve once again reached that time when I’m frantically diligently working to finish up the next issue of The Carriage Journal. I need to send the e-files for this issue to our printer at the end of the week.

Soooo … I may be doing super-quick blog posts during the remainder of this week so I can concentrate on the magazine.

This pretty photo, which I took at last year’s CIAT Cuts (in France), will be featured on the cover of the March issue …

Some CAA members have already received their mailed copy of the January issue of The Carriage Journal, but the folks who bring us our mail here at the Kentucky Horse Park have just today “found” our extra copies of the magazine. So I’m finally able to post an image of the cover here. Ta daaa …

This issue features articles on sleigh types, harness makers Mark W. Cross & Co., the Butterfield Overland Trail in southern California, and much, much more.

The January issue of The Carriage Journal is at the printer!

Here’s the winter-y image (by Henry Alken) that will be featured on the cover.

Looks cold, doesn’t it?

Here’s a sneak peek at the gorgeous cover of the upcoming October issue of The Carriage Journal. It will mail to all current CAA members and CJ subscribers next Tuesday!

And, following on from yesterday’s post, here are a couple of close-up photos of the DeHaans’ vintage tractors …

Yaaaay!! The October issue of The Carriage Journal is finished.

As I think I may’ve mentioned earlier, one of the articles coming up in this issue is on the carriage collection owned by the DeHaans, CAA members in Michigan.

I traveled up to Michigan last month to talk with them about their collection and to photograph it. I was also delighted to learn that Dale has a few 1929 Fords (a pickup truck, a sedan, and a convertible roadster with a rumble seat) and two vintage John Deere tractors. As you know if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, I adore old cars, so I had fun photographing all five of these slightly newer specimens of antique and vintage horsepower.

Here, first, are a few close-up shots of the Fords …

If this by any chance has you intrigued and wanting to see a few more photos of old cars, please see the “old cars” gallery on my website.

Tomorrow, I’ll share a couple of photos of the two tractors.
