No worries about high gas prices!

Enclosed sleigh, known as a "tap schleijdi" used by many Mennonites in Canada. A stone was heated in the household stove,then wrapped and placed inside the sleigh to keep hands and feet warm.  I was told that this type of closed in sleigh was nice because the horse always remembered where home was. It was like the first auto pilot! If you had too much to drink at the Tourist Hotel, (which would have happened very seldom) you could pass out and the horse would instinctively take you back home!    Circa 1947
