Back when I thought I was going to be taking my boss's job, moving Connor to the town I live in and trailering to the farm for lessons, I needed to buy a trailer. I mentioned that I was beginning that search to JenJ, and she said, "I think I have one for you that I haven't been able to use in a while and would love to sell..." She named a price I could not refuse: even after my job situation changed, I wasn't about to turn this down!

It's what I've always wanted - a two horse straight load with escape doors on both sides, no mangers, a ramp, and a tack room. It's even the brand I've come to favor since spending time with the barn's 6 horse, KieferBuilt.
I'm posting pictures before I've had a chance to clean it - Austin is under a water shortage limit due to the drought, so Jen cleaned it best she could without using, y'know, water, so don't judge the appearance! I told her I've got plenty of water up in Indiana, send it my way as-is and I'll take it through the semi truck wash up the interstate from the barn. So that's happening this weekend.

I've already got plans to break it in by taking it to the Hoosier Horse Park for the WPCSA classes in the ISHA show in two weeks, although since it's been a few years since I last hauled anything, I'll be taking it out without him in the trailer to knock the rust off my hauling skills first! I am so looking forward to being independent with Connor for the first time (even though we'll still crash the barn's party for the big trips most likely).
