‘Hounds’ is a term referring to brace supports in a wagon gear. The bracing from the reach to the rear axle are often referred to as reach hounds, reach braces, or crotch hounds. The bracing in the front axle that accepts the tongue are referred to as front hounds. The curved pieces attached to the back of the tongue itself are also referred to as tongue hounds."
