Even though we bought an aluminum trailer this time, I will always love a good heavy steel trailer! They sure can take a beating.

I apologize for the grammar mistakes in that post
I just read over it and I had a lot of mistakes. Good lord haha.
Yeah we were extremely lucky. I had always wondered how I would react if I had ever gotten into an accident with the horse trailer. I had always told people that if anyone hit the trailer with the horses in it I was going to kill whoever did it.
My poor friend thought that I was going to strangle her when I jumped out of the truck and she was surprised when I asked her if she was ok. I knew she was a safe driver and she had done everything she could have possibly done (even pump the trailer breaks in the truck cab) We could tell by the skid marks on the road that her trailer didn't even TRY.
Other than the initial panic we were able to calm each other down and get our bearings back once we knew each other and the horses were fine.
The funny/weird thing is before we even LEFT that morning we both had a feeling s
omething bad was going to happen. And for some reason that morning I kept looking at TC's back legs and overly fretting about the boots making sure they were on properly and just his back legs in general. And I had the urge to say a prayer as we were pulling out of the driveway to leave, as did my friend but she didn't tell me till after the accident. A lot of things happened that we didn't think were odd until after the accident. So strange.
