So, maybe there is a slight difference in height

Okay, so I have known that Yahzi is shorter than Aero, but there are just those moments when it really hits you just how much of a difference there is -- tonight I had them both on the trailer and took the opportunity to send DD proof (our family's thing is, "No pictures, it didn't happen") - when I sat down and looked at the picture I was just hit smack upside the head with how much shorter she is....


Pardon the photo quality - was just snapping a quick pic with my phone...

Sometimes it's right there in front of you , but until it's in a picture you just don't see it!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

I've never had a big girl like this (was raised on those nice short ranch horses, lol) -- is there any danger/risk in her bum being so high up on the door like that? My horses have always sat nice and tucked down in......so this is probably a stupid question......it's just that if ANYTHING happened to her I'd never forgive myself.

The worst danger I see there is to following traffic, looks like the line of fire maybe out bound rather than inbound

Exactly was I was going to say. Not exactly a danger to her, but to any following too closely behind in traffic .... But anyone who follows a (loaded) horse trailer that closely, well deserves to have manure happen! Heck, grew up marching in parades dealing with splitting formations neatly around evidence of who preceded us down the route ... why should cars expect any difference?

I have to admit, I have had an evil laugh at that thought - poetic justice for any asshat dumb enough to tailgate my trailer --- BOMBS AWAY!!
