    I love when people drive right behind me when im hualing a CM extra tall and extra wide trailer and they disapear behind me.. and I have to turn soon after they disapear so I have to slow down very slowly so they don't hit my horses..

    Or hitting black ice with a stallion in the back and people fly by as the trailer is tilting into the other lane.. but make it to the show grounds because it was flooding and we saved some jerks horses even after they let ours starve for a year...

    longshot you are much nicer than me..I would just keep on my merry way instead of pulling over for the ungrateful little twits
    Goneriding that would be a great idea..let them turn 1, back 1, & try to stop 1 with cones around them and see how many they knock down..(oh in my perfect little world..haha)

    love it, but my eldest daughter would never have gotten her license...lol

    My partners trailer is a seven horse with full living quarters. The **** thing is HUGE and we pull it with a dually. Its amazing how many people seem to not see us until the very last second. The back right side of the trailer was taken out once by a jeep because he thought it would be easier to go around and pass us on the right instead of waiting in the left lane. We only had two horses on and they were up front, so nobody got hurt, but we still can't get the little gelding back on the big trailer. :( people just don't think sometimes.

    I have contemplated putting a big sticker on my ramp saying "makes wide right turns." Hubby says if they can not see your big white ass trailer with blinkers going, they are not going to pay any attention to a sign on the ramp. He is right.....

    I am on the road all the time with my trailer, and I will say most drivers in my area are very courteous and thoughful I am pulling a live load. Very rare I come as across peops as you've described, in fact I can't even remember anyone cutting me off when I have been hauling, ever, in 25 years. Probably because Canadians are better drivers with better manners.

    Haha. People are pretty good here. Like when you get stuck in the inside turn lane and your trying to get to the outside theyll stop and wave you up or when your making sharp right turns I've had cars thatll back up for me haha.

    Then again.. one time we were trying to pull into IFA with our 4 horse slant w/ a full camper in front and we were on the busy highway....we had a guy laying on his horn behind us because we were going to slow and a guy that was pulling out, also laying on his horn...sitting in the middle of the drive so we couldnt fit in! Then he rolled down his window flipped us off and called us some choice names because we backed up so he could peel out and we could fit in.....it was ridiculous

    We've debated a sign saying

    Yes we have to go this speed or the ponies will fall over and that will hold you up even longer!

    I have to say drivers near me are not courteous and don't have a clue. Recently I had my mom haul the trailer home, and nearly wrecked due to a careless driver texting, mom was getting on highway, girl texting lost control of her car on the entrence ramp, spun around, was coming at my mom and trailer head on, my mom swerved to avoid her, and nearly hit the side of a bridge and almost lost the trailer. Thank god the trailer was empty. People get on my nerves when I'm hauling to say the least.
