IVILLIAM RUREL FRANKLIN, OF NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA.

AWNING FOR HORSES.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 579,535, dated March 23, 1897.

Application led November 11, 1896. Serial No. 611,737. (N0 model.)

T0 LZZ whom it may concern,.-

Be it known that I, WILLIAM RUREL FREE x- LIN, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Orleans, in the parish of Orleans and State of Louisiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Awnings for Horses and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the in vention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the saine. l

My invention relates to awnings for protecting horses from the sun, and more particularly to means whereby su ch awnings may be readily connected with the harness upon a horse tand as readily disconnected there from when desired, and its novelty and ad vantages will be fully understood from the following description and claim when taken in conjunction with the annexed drawings, in which- Figure l is a perspective view illustrating my improvements in position upon a horse. Fig. 2 is a detail elevation showing a portion of the harness, one of the sockets connected to such harness portion, and a portion of one of the awning supports arranged in said socket. Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse section of the saine. Fig. 4t is an elevation illustrating the manner in which the sockets are connected to the harness, and Fig. 5 is a perspective View illustrating a partly-i`ormed socket.

In the said drawings similar letters designate corresponding parts in all of the views, referring to Which- A indicates a harness which may have a breast-strap ce, collar-strap b, and hip-strap c, and may otherwise be of the ordinary or any other suitable construction, and B indicates the awning, which comprises a suitable frame C and a cover D, of textile or other suitable material.

E indicates the depending supporting-rods of the awningframe O, and F indicates the holder-sockets, which are designed to receive the said rods E and thereby support the awning above the horse. These holder-sockets E, of which four are employed, are preferably connected to the collar-strap Z2 and the hip-strap c of the harness at opposite sides of the horse, and they are respectively formed of a single piece of sheet metal j. This piece of metal j has the body portion 7c, the upwardly-bent portion l at the lower end of the body portion 7o, the branches m, which rest at the outside of the body portion 7c and serve in conjunction with said body portion and the portion Z to form the socket, and the inwardly-bent branches n, which serve to clasp the sockets upon the portions of the harness stated. The sockets F, formed in the manner described, may be produced very cheaply and may be readily connected to a harness.

lVhen a harness is equipped with the holdersockets F, it will be observed that the awning B may be supported above a horse by simply placing the rods EV in the sockets, and it will also be observed that the said rods E may be readily removed from the sockets and the awning disconnected from the harness when desired. While the awning may be readily disconnected from the harness when desired, as above stated, the depth of the sockets F and the fact that the rods E are frictionally held therein will effectually prevent raising of the awning by the wind or by the motions of the horse.

I am well aware that it is old to detachably connect a horse-cover support to the harness on the animal, and I make no claim to this broad construction.

What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The combination of a harness, vertical or approximately vertical holder-sockets connected -to said harness soV as to rest at opposite sides of a horse when the harness :is in use; said holder-sockets being respectively formed of a single piece of sheet metal and having the body portion, the upwardly-bent portion at the lower end of the body portion, the branches m, extending in one direction and serving in conjunction with the body and upwardly-bent portion to form the socket, and the branches n, for clasping the socket on a harness-strap, extending in an opposite direction with respect to the branches in, and an 4awning adapted to cover the body and head of a horse and having depending rods removably placed in the sockets, substantially as specified.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

`WILLIAM RUREL FRANKLIN. Witnesses:

O. PILMAN, W. G. M. CoNNnLL.
