April's New Ride

I finally got myself a different trailer!!!! (well April and Chloe too!!) It is a 2004 featherlite that has barely been used. The dressing area is bare but this spring Im going to have it wired and maybe by this fall get it insulated and have a couple of shelves put in along with a microwave and fridge.

The trailer has a stud wall on the first stall and we got them to install a load light. Here are a few pics of the trailer... the blue stock trailer in the one pic is my old trailer, we had it for 15 years- so it is a huge step-up. Now I just have to get April to get into this trailer!!!

Good luck with loading into the new trailer. It looks like a sweet ride. I'd open it up and let my one that is the hardest to load look around first with the most space.

ya I will have to open it up... she was good about the stock trailer but that is a lot more open. It is way too icy out right now to mess with her but when the time comes I will probably take out the rear tack and let her look and smell.

Nice step up from the old one! Your going to love having the dressing area. First thing I would buy is a porta potty Always first thing on my list when we're on a road trip.

Vidaloco--- lmao that is what my mom says!! We need to strap a porta potty to the back of our car!

That is one nice trailer!!! I want one! I might get an old 70-80 model two horse for like $700 but I will have to fix it up And I had a dream that I was driving and pulling Joe in hte trailer and the floor blew out and well, Joe went bye bye.

If you ever decide you don't need that big monsterous trailer, it will love anew home here in California!!!

Thanks guys!!!! The box length on it is only 18ft (2 feet longer then the stock) so it isnt overly huge. There were some 8 horse trailers with dressing room on the lot... now those are long trailers-lol. Or the three horses with the really big living quaters that have pull-outs... maybe someday :)

Im excited about the dressing room part, with the stock I would just change in there but it took a lot more work to get a "dessing" room set-up.

And flooring always concerns me- growing up a neighbor had a small BP two horse and when she got home at went to take her horse out she found that half her flooring had came out under the horse... the horse was streched out just barely hanging on... so ya we changed out the floor on the stock and after every use it was cleaned out. Very scary
