Parking trailer in field with the horse

Does anyone do it? I don't do it right now but it would make parking around my place alot easier. I don't really see how a horse could get hurt with it in there but I wasn't sure. Anyone ever have any problems?

I see peops do this, I also see them parking tractors & stuff in the pasture. I don't like it. 9 times out of 10, nothing happens, but there is always a risk. My horses are too valuable to risk it.

People do it all the time and the risk is small. But then horses are one of the most self destructive critters I know. If they could figure out how to hurt themselves on a molecule of air you can be sure some of them would do it.

Agreed, apply Murphy's Law to horses above all other creatures! :)

Some people down the street from me use their horse trailer as shelter for their horses. They just leave it parked in the middle of the field with the doors open.

I wouldn't do it, scares me every time I drive by and see their horse half-in, half out..... he always looks like he's stuck and in trouble!

I did it once with an older trailer we used to teach loading. The horses gnawed on it and trashed the paint job. Teeth marks all over it.

This happened to my trailer too. It was put in a paddock with a mare and she gnawed a whole mess of teeth marks in it.

^^^Especially if it's red and shiny. I have teeth marks on my CAR from using it to push a big bale into the pasture one winter. I was surrounded by horses trying to take a bite out of the paint. I never did tell DH what really happened....
