Quite a common thing around my place. Our horses always poop and pee in the trailer.

About the pee flooding out, the worst I ever heard about and smelled later was when we lived in Bonners Ferry ID. There was a semi truck loaded with hogs and as it went up the side of the valley all that stuff came flowing out the back! The town smelled like a pig barn for a week! It was NASTY!

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

xD. The myth has been destroyed...

I have also used the *pop in float trick* for getting worming samples, however I have never heard of it for colic. A good idea tho.

When I bought my trailer, brand new, no horse had stepped foot in it before, I loaded one of my horses in it, with no bedding. He peed immediately, like marking his territory or something! I spent an hour washing pee splatter from the inside of that new trailer and now I only haul with shavings. He hasn't peed again, bugger.

Gah! Hog trucks stink!!!

LOL! My husband had been hauling cows pretty hard in the spring run and hadn't got a chance to wash out yet plus it had rained. (and it's illegal to run down the road with the traps open) So the belly of that trailer was a big soupy mess. He was loaded on an double laned overpass/on ramp that was banked fairly steep, motorcycle cop was in the inside/downhill lane on the corner next to the trailer and all that sh!t sloshed out the sides....whoops! That made for one cranky cop! LOL!

Back on topic... mine have no issue with pissing in the trailer.

Ugh, my horse loves to pee in his trailer. I always put a nice fluffy pile of shavings in that spot, so it all get soaked up, and doesn't end up under his feet.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
