Craziest idea in human history

Ok, so here it is, I am just going to tell you straight. I want to RV full time with a horse. Crazy right? But there is another option, get a small house 9 117 sq. feet )on wheels and tow it behind a truck with a goat box in the bed, pulling a horse trailer behind, or in front of the house. What do you think? Check out the house! Google Tumbleweed houses and it is called the Lugar. Pretty neat, huh? So, my plan for the horse to be excersized, trail ride at every state park we come across! Pasture, I will bring along a carri lite ( I think it is called that ) corral, horse sized, and there you have it! So should I do it? Let me know!

Hello! I wish I had a horse of my own.... I am working hard to earn $1500 this year though! There just doesn't seem to be very many good horses on the market though......

I'm not very well broached on that lifestyle but have you looked at the expense of living that way? Gas for an RV alone is expensive, even more so pulling two horses around constantly.

From rough guessing I would also recommend planning hay storage because not everywhere has fertile grass and a small corral wouldn't be enough to keep roughage in their stomach constantly, they would need a lot of hay!

If you can do it though it definitely sounds fun!

I suppose it's doable. More so with a truck bed camper than the tow beind little house. Pulling 2 things with a truck is tricky & backing up would be a beast.
You'd have to have some sort of hay supply unless you're doing rustic camping.
I'd also suggest a bunch of money & a gun.

I got a plan that'll be cheaper and more fun. Get you a buggy or small conastoga wagon that one horse can pull. Doesn't matter if he's broke to work, he will be after a few hundred miles, big trucks honking, hitchhikers jumping in and out, and hippies throwing bottles at you as they drive by. Take all yer supplies and even pull a little trailer if you want. Every time you roll by the gas station, holler "Fill 'er up, b^tches!"

It's also usually illegal to haul more than one trailer behind a vehicle with good reason. Not to deflate a dream OP but your idea of wandering around the country is kind of unrealistic...unless you are independently wealthy. In which case you can throw enough money into most any scenario and make it happen

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

I was going to live off of horse show earnings, and settle down somewhere and breed a mare once or twice and work my butt off for the money.
