We Got a Horse Trailer!

I’m so excited, we finally got a horse trailer so we can ride our horses at the beautiful parks and horse back riding trails in the area. 

We found a good deal on a used trailer in Washington but it needs a little work. 


After wire brushing the rust with a drill and a wire brush bit, John and I painted a special chemical on the rusty spots that changes the rust into a paintable black surface.


Tomorrow we drop the trailer off, along with the truck to get the brake assist installed on our truck and also to get the broken light fixed on the trailer. 

Yay! It will be great to do more than just fox trot up and down the street ha ha.

  1. I’m sure you’ve already thought of this but please check the floor and make sure it is solid. Years ago I heard a nightmare story of horses falling through a rotted floor of a horse trailer. I’m not trying to be negative and I’m sure you’ve already checked but I just had to say it just in case.

    1. Yes. You’re absolutely right. We didn’t check it but you never know if somebody will. Thanks Linda!
      There’s some small soft spots on the boards which will have to be replaced but most of the boards are solid. All the metal under the boards is solid but has the beginnings of rust so we are treating all of that.
