THANKS HONEY!!!

Well hubby surprised me with a catch trailer! We both have been wanting one, I have since it would be easier to haul, more fuel efficient. I normally haul by myself and only a couple of horses! We have been looking and could only find 1 axle and he insists on2 axles. I agree that way if you have a blow out, you still have some control! We just put our 4 horse slant trailer for sale, we haven't hauled with it in over a year. (our dream is to have a horse trailer with living quarters for 4! But man they are so expensive-so that will have to wait & you can't haul cows in them!!!) For just one horse it is just too heavy! I have been hauling in our 30" stock trailer. When we are day working we have to haul the stock trailer for the cows! But for one horse or even two it is still too big. Our friend bought this trailer brand new in February and when we first saw it we told him we wanted first dibs on it when he wanted to sell it. *he is notorious for buying things and not keeping them very long!* We were shocked when he called Tuesday night and said he was selling the trailer. He has only hauled horses in it twice and no cows! He priced it too us and told us he would give us 2 days to think about it. We talked about it that night and hubby said I'm getting you that trailer, period end of discussion. It will diffidently get used and we will get our moneys worth out of it. I washed it up this afternoon and will haul with it tomorrow! This cowgirl doesn't want jewelry, clothes or other girlie things~give me something I can use with my horses and I'm so very happy! Thanks again Honey, you so rock!

Very nice there girlfriend! Now you got your own rig-there will be no holding you back-LOL.

I know what you mean about the living quarters horse trailer. Chris promised me one this year. We went and looked at a new Featherlite. I choked at the rock bottom price they threw at us-still $$,$$$. So I told him I would look for one that was a couple of years old and about 20,000 grand under that new one. I have been lazy and not done much looking. Need to get off my butt and find one by this fall. :) Til then I am happy with the trailer I have-a 3-horse slant with a tack compartment.

That trailer looks easy to haul. I'm with you on not wanting girly gifts. My beloved husband once bought me steel panels for a 50 ft. round pen for our anniversary. He sure knows the way to my heart!

That's a great trailer! I sold my big one and bought a two horse with just a storage room. I just didn't need the big one any more and it was hard to haul or turn around. I'm with you, I like that kind of gift over some girly thing!

I am with you on the girly gifts too! Nice trailer...I am sure you will love it.

I have to agree with you too on the girly gifts! I got a maternity pen one year for my birthday (it helped that it was tax deductable)and a franklin calf puller for Christmas. Glad you have a new trailer that suits you!

Oh man, I am with you when it comes to getting gifts. I am so unmaterialistic. I am not into jewelry or hair accessories or cute little girlie things one bit, except if it is for my girlie horse... LOL
Great trailer! I am happy for you.

I love my 3 horse slant with huge tack room. It fits us perfect.
happy horsin' around!
