Handmade Idaho Sheep Wagons

“Kim Vader’s family began herding sheep in Idaho in the early 1900s. Eight years ago, his sister wanted a wagon to use as a guesthouse that would pay homage to their sheep ranching grandfather. Vader, having spent 3 decades as a craftsman, agreed to build her one with his wife Kathy.

Word of their build got around and today, they’ve built, or rebuilt, 50 wagons for modern shepherds and those looking for a more original second home. Each wagon is custom and takes them 3 months (with 3 people working) to complete. They often build for the descendants of sheep ranchers who are looking to recreate some of their family history. ” – Fair Companies

How About a Sheep Wagon with Antique Wood Spoke Wheels?

We started by restoring the antique wood spoke running gear – original running gear was purchased on old farm in Idaho. We build our Sheep Wagons from the ground up. We built old style boxes on both sides and a drop-down tail gate. Inside is a neat antique style cabinet and plenty of drawers for storage.” idahosheepcamp.com
