Thanks for the heart! Lol.... I try to do the best for them. That's why I make them at least dabble in EVERYTHING I can. That way if something would ever happen to me, and my husband HAS to sell them, they have a better chance. AND if that would ever happen he better have a good reason AND better make sure they get a good home or I'll haunt him! LOL I'm even doing to train my miniature to drive! So she will never be tossed around when a kid outgrows her! I can play with her, lol....

But anyway, I was thinking of having ALL the horses the family owns running along the side. It'll probably be 3 feet long and 4 inches tall.... Something tasteful not cheesy, lol...

We have 6 paints, and 5 solids (including the two little ones- miniature and pony). We have all kind of colors! Tovero bay paint, tobiano sorrel paint, dark bay tobiano paint, tobiano black and white paint, overo black and white paint, overo paint, palomino, dark back with white markings, a solid brown, a dark bay with white markings, a red bay with white markings, and a fading black!

Angels are people who can see and feel the pain in all creatures... -myself

I had to laugh when I saw this thread. We just put our final coat of primer on today!!! Yay! We will fine scuff tomorrow and shoot final paint Tuesday. Gosh am I ready to be done!!!! It is going to look awesome tho. We turned it into a bigger job than maybe needed but it is going to look awesome once all the molding and such is back on. Good luck!

We are doing a dark gray. Darker than we first wanted but, its pre-mixed and a lot cheaper that way. Do you have pictures of your trailer?? I would love to see it and watch your progress. We did the fine sand tonight and Tuesday we will wipe it down, clean it and spray color. Then I will be ordering all the parts to put back on it, door guards and new color for molding, weather stripping, stuff like that. I cannot wait.
