Right now, I am trying not to get too far ahead of myself.. but in theory, yes!!

The shortened rehab process has her back to full turnout by the new year and return to full training by the end of jan. Normally we would start legging up about then.. so I hope to be able to start training like nothing had ever happened. Fingers crossed!!

It looks like plywood. I had understood that the ramp was made marine grade plywood. I told Barry that I wanted to get one of those hoop cover thingies. I want it covered. He said "it's a horse trailer Denise. It is made to be outside."

I told him it may be a horse trailer but is my freaking horse trailer and my pride and joy - and my freedom to be able to haul my horse when I want to go somewhere without waiting on his truck (Like I wouldn't be freaking old waiting on that!)

Unfortunately, Barry has been very ill this year and still is. Still don't know what is wrong with him other than he does have some ulcers (the doc said the other day after a procedure that it was indicative of crohns - um...yeah...we kinda have known that for years). If he wasn't he could do this but I didn't even ask him to. I need to find my manual to see how to take the ramp off. Geezzzzzzzzzzzzz

Yep, Nancy, it was pretty frustrating yesterday. Was hoping ASAP could help but I think this place will be just fine and I won't have to haul 100 miles. They repair RV's everyday there so he is going to get the same skin they use on RV's.

Well, it may be a horse trailer, but it is a Brenderup Horse Trailer and needs protection, but only if you want it to last! I was totally bummer to learn that Simon had stopped importing the Brenderups to the US three months before I was going to trade mine in for a Baron model to get the big tack area. I would hate to loose my Brenderup...

I had a steel stock trailer for 10 years before the Brenderup and left it outside without a problem, but we did have to replace the floor. Wood just doesn't last outside...

Maybe your DH would be ok with one of those trailer covers without the poles?? Although it would need to be dry as a bone before you covered it up...and I have no idea how you'd toss it over the top since they are so tall...

Denise you have a manual?

My ex was on the phone with Simon for quite some time demanding a manual, Simon kept saying to just call and he would assist with any repairs - the manual won't help he says over & over..well...my ex eventually wore Simon down and he agreed to have a manual sent to us. So after about a month it arrives...all in Danish!!

So much for my big trail ride today. My new riding friend Pam brought her own horse today. She should have ridden my antique appaloosa. She led her horse up to my house. She mounted. The horse stood politely for a few seconds. Then she did a rodeo buck, and then almost flipped over backward. Pam fell and hurt herself. I don't think anything is broken, but her back is spasming. The horse ran home. Pam wouldn't let me take her to the hospital to get xrayed, but we called her boyfriend and he is most likely going to take her.

I put the Not So Psycho Afterall Princess up, drove to her house, caught the witch, unsaddled her, and put her up. All persons everywhere forgive me for saying my horse is psycho. She is nervous, spirited, and a bit over reactive, but that horse is plain mean.

Amy, I think I have a booklet - I will have to look for it. Dang....I am just bummed over this - I didn't want to spend $1300 on a trailer that costs me with financing over $15,000. So with this repair I will be over $16,000 on this trailer. GRRRRRRRRRRRR

On the bright side I made my first solo ride today in the park. I went and pulled the Brenderup near Biscuit's new paddock. LOL he walked away from me and did a circle or tow but decided to give up on that...good Biscuit.

The woods are super wet and muddy - Biscuit is not a fan of mud and I had quiet a time getting him to enter at the trail head in the mud. We went to the left and we came upon a downed tree that hadn't fallen all the way down...couldn't go around it either - too thick of brush. So we went back, picked up another trail and came out near the Cattail Marsh entry. We only did 1.34 miles but it was a solo ride and that is all that counts!!

OMG Celeste...I wish I was close enough to come hug up Princess and give her some carrots, treats and anything else she wants. (perhaps marry The Biscuit because he is so darling?)

Wow - her horse sounds like it is genuinely nuts. I wonder how many times this horse has done that or something similar?

I hope that Pam is ok and nothing is injured. Keep us updated.

She just called from the hospital and she has a couple of fractures in her back. That horse is evil. She rode it up here. Then as soon as she turned in the direction of her barn, the horse bolted down the road and threw her off on the road. It was totally unprovoked and the horse is supposed to be broke.

Geez, celeste, hope the evil horse didn't leave any evil spirits behind!!! You should burn some branches over the area or something....

Hope Pam will recover quickly!

I just got news that my friend back in Texas has stage 4 pancreatic cancer, and it has already moved to his liver. I don't want to put his name out there yet, but he is a horseperson of note, and I do not want to some to hear it from me.... but please pray! Thanks.

Wow, not a good day in the realm of health!

Celeste, so sorry to hear about your friend's injuries. But very glad your "psycho" princess behaved herself despite the rodeo.

Greentree, so sorry to hear about your friend's diagnosis. Prayers for him and his family and friends. The world doesn't have enough good horsepeople as it is, always terrible to lose one too soon.
