People do it both ways. I guess it just depends on what kind of finish your planning on doing. Matte, I'd just use a brush. But for a gloss finish, definitely a gun. I got to paint mine. Luckily my husband is great at auto body and handy with a paint gun! Not sure what color we're doing. What r you doing?I'm thinking white with big decals....

I'm doing its original color a shiny silver... It's still there just dull!! Also since it has a huge door in the back I'm thinking of doing our barn name:P

I repainted with Tremclad which doesn't use primer as it has the rust inhibitors in it (fish oil). It went on with a small paint roller. I sanded in stages and wiped with turpentine then painted the section. Not a factory job but it looks a whole lot better and it's controlling the rust. I think in the US it's called Rustoleum

I have no idea, lol... It's new to me. I just bought it a few weeks ago. It's three different colors, haha! It's a two horse straight load with a a ramp door on the back. I like the idea of doing your barn name! :)

No, not really. Our farm used to be a big hereford farm, but then after my husband's grandfather died his brother took over with the cows and it turned to angus.... It never had a name. About half the horses we have are rescued! But that's getting off track... Anyway... I also thought of airbrushing the farm horses on there (including the pony and miniature), lol... but a friend said it maybe a little Korney.... So then I thought of just their outline.... I have no clue what to put on otherwise....

No, I'm not getting rid of any! Mine are with me forever! The other horses that the rest of the family owns, I would probably buy so they don't go anywhere, lol... but I don't think they are going anywhere either.
