No worries. I know all too well what it's like to be stuffed around because of a problem horse.

Its really not a bad idea. If you could do it every weekend, you may just pay that bad boy off early! We had a person when I rode 4-H that would haul to and from a show for 20+gas. Doesnt sound like much but she would make 10 trips. 2 horses a trip. She wouldnt take problem loaders either. And if your horse was a kicker...you just got a one way trip! LOL

This is something I'm definitely going to talk with Indy about. I'm also worried at the moment about my job too so I'm keeping all possibilities totally open! They are doing a "clean sweep" at my company and I am praying to continue to fly under the radar and avoid the ax! Just thinking about a backup plan just in case!

I know all about that stuff. A company that I had been with for a year, without much notice, closed its doors on all the staff last May. So I've been training horses just to make ends meet and have a few dollars for the summer. Now I've started another job. The guy who got me my last job, I now work for. It's a great job...except a gal that works there thinks I'm after her job and has made some comments here and there. ex: "Not sure why your here" or "No..you can't do that, it's my job. (and I'm suppose to be her backup and learn her job.) So I'm hoping she gets over whatever it is, so I can just do my job. I really like it there and really want it to work. The boss gave me a critique today and said I was exceeding his expectactions. So..I'm holding out hope it works.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

They brought a controller in at my job and her was convinced the office manager and myself had ruined EVERYTHING and wanted to clean house and bring in her friends. I have miraculously slid past for the time being but you can bet your butt I am covering my booty!

If you are seriously thinking about using your trailer to do commercial hauling look into it a big first. iIt leads to all kinds of legal insurance issues. If you do this make sure you get yourself commercial hauler insurance and check to see what your state requires you to have for a license.

Note - accepting money for hauling at all makes you a commercial hauler.

Thanks AB! I'll do that if we decide it's something we want to do!

I think buyers remorse is natural when making a big purchase... if you are not already taking a night to sleep on your prospective purchases, I would suggest that.... it helps me not to rush into things and plus anticipation is fun.
