Using a cattle trailer as a horse trailer??
o.k so next weekend I am moving my horse to my grandmother's 300 acre farm, and all she has available for moving large animals is a cattle trailer, and I do not have the privilege to own my own horse trailer yet :(
Last time I visited there with my horse, we were not as well educated on if using the cattle trailer to move my horse was a good idea or not (because it was a last minute sort of thing :) so we just went ahead and used it! She arrived safely, but I could hear her moving around and getting ansy along the way, and it just worried me ya know? ( for those that do not know, a cattle trailer has no middle divider in the large box, so it is like just tying your horse up in a "stall" and driving hahaha )
The barn that I am at now has a horse trailer that we could borrow, but it has reaaaaallly bad tires, which worries me even more.
So I guess what i'm asking is if it is really OK to move my horse in the cattle trailer or not? Or maybe if I do what precautions I should take before hand :)) I am a natural worrier so I could just be over reacting about the whole thing hahaha!
Oh yea! And its only a 35-40 minute drive:)
