Hames

 

The horse hames in the photo above were buckled on the outside of the draft horse collar. They were the rigid frame of the horse harness that helped support the harness and hold the traces to transfer the pulling force of the horse to the load being pulled.

 

See also the photo titled Hay Mower for a picture of how this item is used.
