I really like the idea of being able to see the horses while I am driving. The wireless systems are the easiest to set up and can be moved from trailer to trailer with the least amount of effort. The system above is just one of many available on the internet - just type in 'horse wireless monitoring system' into google and you will find them. Prices are in the $200 - $600 range for the wireless systems. The wired systems start at around $150.
Here are a couple more:
http://www.horsetrailermonitor.com/ - this website has an annoying video that automatically plays
http://www.batterybarn.com/trailereyes.htm - this system is $259 and the camera runs on a 9V battery. This one appears to be the easiest to install and the most versatile - I especially like the fact that you can use it to hook up the trailer and then move it into the horse trailer for the ride.

These systems can also be used in other areas such as the barn, pool, and play areas.
I chose to feature the ranchcam company because of the truck/trailer combination they are using in their ad. If I was going to spend that much money, I would make sure they match!!!
