Friday, my wife Julia and I attended the Dixie Draft Sale. The Dixie Draft Sale is the biggest horse, mule, tack and horse drawn equipment sale in the south-east. Their catalogue is the only place I’ve ever seen the word “chattlel” used outside of a hand written Civil War last will and testament.
Mirriam Webster describes chattel as, ” an item of tangible movable or immovable property except real estate and things (such as buildings) connected with real property.”
Many of the faces we encountered – including some of our friends’ – hark back to that by-gone era when a man might use a word like chattel.
There was plenty of that on sale this weekend.

Before we get to the faces, I wanted to show you some photos from the sale.
