Many moons ago when I was still boarding and being frustrated about only being able to show where my trainer wanted to go (if she wanted to go) I decided I should get a trailer. My dad, who really was not a big fan of said trainer, was totally on board, and even offered to buy it for me. (My dad is awesome. He also assisted in my purchasing my house and getting my mortgage because he would do ANYTHING for me to not board there anymore... But I digress.) Since my dad technically owned my trailer, he too would have the title. And if not, he needs to be the one to obtain a new one from the DMV. That doesn't sound like a big deal, but he was in meetings the rest of last week and unable to go check the safe deposit box and/or go to the DMV. And now he's in South Africa for two weeks on a super fun vacation. So this confession is that I can't pick up my new trailer for awhile, and I totally should have asked that question months ago. My bad. But hey, at least I didn't wait until I got there with trailer in tow to have to turn around and leave... Right?
On the bright side, this has allowed me plenty of time to clean out Tina the Trailer before she leaves me for her new home. I tackled the tack room on Saturday:
|This was after the first load was removed. I also keep a wheelbarrow up there|
Another kind of surprising thing was that all of my show girths are so small! Jampy was quite lean when he was a show horse. There was one that was labeled a 51" (weird right?) which I think was Rio's but all the rest were 48" and smaller. Another thing I won't have to worry about until I have a show horse again, as who knows what size he will be.
The only real casualty was Jampy's show bonnet from when he used to be a jumper.
|Pictred is a said bonnet, and a girth that would never fit him now.|
Anything you need to confess today? Trouble with rodents where you are? When was the last time you fully emptied your trailer out?
