Finally test drove the trailer with the horses!
Yep, we made it off the property, horses in tow (literally, haha).
Aidan was quite hesitant to load, even with the tips the trainer had given me, i was onyl gettign two feet on the ramp. Hubby felt abd for me, came out, tried to walk him on, and i was in the back did a quick wave of my arm and a "nch nch" and on he went, sweating like a bullet.
Next was Cooper, who quietly sniffed the trailer and up her went.
My hubby, who has trailered cars, atv's etc had never trailered livestock. I thank my stars hes much more level headed than me. I was panicing at every stop, turn and go. We took a short drive around the area and got back home, everyone in one piece.
It took twice as long to clean the trailer than it did to actually go anywhere. Thank God for pressure washers though. And thank God even more my hubby considered it a "man's job" to use it hahahha. I'm sure that'll wear off quickly!
I'm so glad we made it safely out and back home. Next step, new trailer tires and a current coggin's for Cooper!
