I finally found (and bought) a trailer this week! It’s a 1997 4-Star gooseneck two-horse slant. It’s in great shape—especially for its age. It is an extra tall and wide model, but it is still going to be a cozy fit with both horses in at the same time. It pulls very nicely. I have been working with the boys getting them used to it this week, and so far, so good.

It’s been a busy and productive winter, horse-wise. Everyone in the barn is happy to (finally) see nicer weather. Boulder and Bob are both doing well. We started Parelli Natural Horsemanship in this winter (yes, I drank the Kool-Aid), and Kim and I couldn’t be happier (the horses say the same thing). Lots more to report, but that’s all I have time for now. The ponies are calling to me!
