  1. Buying a horse trailer

    I'm going to get a cover for it. That's the best I can do to keep it out of the moisture and keep it lubed well.
  2. Buying a horse trailer

    I'm definitely going to have to get a steel trailer. I just cannot justify $10,000 on a trailer that I will only use during the summer. http://www.drtrailer.net/2018-cm-2-horse-slant-load-trailer-8WCb|Ek.html The Calico can be ordered in a two horse slant for $100 less than the CM trailer. The CM is 14 feet long. http://www.drtrailer.net/2017-calico-trailers-3-horse-slant-load-horse-trailer-FXMf|Ek.html
  3. Buying a horse trailer

    Thanks PD, I do not care for shopping lol. Just about every trailer I have called on was sold already but....They just happened to have one very similar for a higher price lol. I want the lightest and most inexpensive and safest trailer I can find. My truck is good up to 9600 lbs but I do not ever see me hauling that much.
  4. Buying a horse trailer

    I am looking into buying a horse trailer. Nothing fancy, just safe. I'm just looking for some advice on how I should go about it. Should I go through a dealer? Should I avoid getting my loan through the dealer? Is it cheaper to buy from a private seller?
  5. Promise of Heatwave

    It's over 50┬░ out. The snow has mostly melted away and my two youngest came down with strep throat.
  6. ELD mandate

    It is confusing to say the least. So if I buy my friend gas for hauling my horse to a show, she is good? But if I give her cash it's profit and she is in violation? If I go to a race 4 hours away, win $600, then I am in violation? It sort of reminds of asset forfeiture. The laws around it are so grey that how it is enforced just depends on who you are dealing with.

  10. 36 and cloudy

    It's like -15┬░ here. Just made sure the big man has lots of hay to keep him full and warm.

    Thank you:) She takes after her daddy.
  12. Merry Christmas everyone!!

    Busy day. Kept having whiteout conditions but luckily it did not last. My husband got some food poisoning a few days ago and still was not feeling all that well. But we did have a nice morning. I decided not to have a dinner and did a meat and cheese tray instead. Went over very well. My daughter is 2 and still kind of learning about Christmas. I think she was overwhelmed lol.

  14. Colt starter?

    You all know about my gelding that had some hiccups last summer in training. I ended up sending him to a colt starter who did help him quite a bit. He just took him back to basics. I let him spend 30 Days there and then brought him home and rode for about a month. He has been off work since October and I know come this spring we will be starting all over again. Since I will be starting my daycare soon I decided to send him away for training. I would have sent him to the last guy but he was really expensive and gone a lot. Paid a lot for board for a horse not being ridden:( Im thinking the best route to go is to stick with a very skilled colt starter. Do you all think this would be the best route to go with a young horse that did not have the best start but is still showing promise? And there are some photos of him playing for you enjoyment.
  15. How many horses do you own?

    I have one but I am casually looking for another. Preferably a yearling.
