A lot has happened in the past 2 weeks! First things first, this beautiful trailer came into my life:
I have been wanting a trailer for
forever awhile and since we got a vehicle that is able to pull a trailer I’ve been keeping my eyes pealed for a trailer in our price range. Since our price range was pretty low, there were not a ton of options that didn’t either need a ton of work or just looked plain sketchy. The nice thing is that Spot is pretty small therefore we wouldn’t need a big warmblood trailer so I was hoping to get an older trailer that was still in decent shape.
I kept on cruising the myriad of trailer sale sites like craigslist and FB until this trailer popped up on my local craigslist! It was listed at a great price and I managed to haggle the guy down $100 bucks (score!). One day I was trailer-less, and the next day I had wheels!
It has a few minor cosmetic issues like some small rust spots and some of the padding is ripped, but other than that it hauls great and has plenty of room to haul a larger horse as well. Once its stops raining like mad I will go to town on it with a sander, primer, paint, and new padding to get it spiffy and neat.
I’m so excited to finally have the ability to trailer out without having to beg/borrow/steal a ride to wherever I needed to go. There are now a ton of opportunities and adventures open to us now!
