No Problem

I'm just here to brag I had to take Vida to the vet this morning (she had a tick way down in her ear). While I had the trailer hooked up I figured I'd start on the trailer training with my 2 year olds.
First Saro....Walk her to the trailer, she puts one foot on the ramp then up she went Wow that was easy! Backed her out did it a few more times.
Ok, lets try Shiloh....Walked her up to the trailer, she put one foot on the ramp and up she went Wow, am I just lucky or what? backed her out, loaded her a few more times. "good girls" and lots of loving to both of them.
This was the first time either of them had been anywhere near the trailer. I was so proud of them I just had to come on and brag
Next we will try closing the doors and moving the trailer a bit. Maybe thats when the wild ride will begin.

That's FANTASTIC!!!! 8)

I'll keep my fingers crossed so that your first trip in the trailer will go just as well!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

That's awesome! Either you have a fantastic bond with them that they trust to you go into the scary trailer OR they're just fearless... or a combination of both.

Is Vida Ok?

Yes, Vida is fine. Its her second vet check. We didn't spot the tick bite the first time. She's been very ear shy for the last couple of weeks so I figured the vet better have another look. Thanks for asking :)
