Antique Drenching Bits For Medicating Horses
Recently shown in the "Draft Horse Journal", Werking's bits were used to give horses liquid medicine. A funnel on one side feeds the medicine into the hollow mouthpiece which had holes in it.
The bits date back to the early 1900's. Werking found one listed in the 1909 Sears catalog.
"I've been offered $200 apiece for them, but they're not for sale at any price," says Werking.
