antique toy horse & buggy info wanted

Hello-
I have an old antique toy horse and buggy. I'd love to know more about it, especially how old it is. It is 2 foot tall, 3 feet long and 17" wide. When it is peddled, all the horses feet move. For steering, the reins are used. It is missing one rubber tire - i would love to know where I can get one to replace it. Any information about this, as a toy or as a collectible would be greatly appreciated.....even a suggestion on where I can look for more information. Thank you very much.

some info I found...

There is refrence to one made in the 1880's.
I know someone who has the one he has as a kid, and he was born in 1931.
Google antique pedal toy and you will find lots of dealers who may steer you to a place for a new tire.

Often the tail was made from sisal.

The wheel construction indicates it may be older than 1940. Because it had 'rubber' tires, it was probably made after 1890.
