We are getting ready to go camping and my hubby asked me what we would do if we were camping and it was storming with lightning.Most likely they would be tied under the trees on a line. Would you load them up in the trailer? Sounds like a stupid question but just want to be prepared in case it happens. Thanks..

Trailer would be the safest for them in the event of lightning but there's also a big chance of them getting spooked in there and either a) hurting themselves and/or b) cause future loading issues.

Any chance there's stalls where you're going? While I normally prefer to keep mine outside on a picket line or tie rail when we're camping I think I'd spring for a stall if they were available in that instance.

ok thanks..they are used to being out 24/7 so wasn't sure what to do, normally they are very calm. One of the reasons I was asking is that my gelding was indirectly hit by lightning almost two years ago so that scares me that it could happen again.

No stalls this trip but in July we will have stalls reserved. Thanks for your input, sounds like we need to use our best judgement...
