The Story Behind the Picture
Back in November I posted this picture and several of you asked if I knew what happened. I found out last week when I attended a clinic called "How to get your horse rescue ready" (If you ever get a chance to attend this clinic, I highly recommend it)
Two women were taking their horses to an early spring show. They hadn't gotten far down the road when they heard/felt one of the horses going crazy in the trailer. They pulled over to investigate. The trailer had doors that were split so that you could open either the top or the bottom or both. They opened just the top half to see what was going on and as soon as they opened the top, the horse tried to jump out! Since the horse got stuck on the bottom half of the door, they could not open it.
The police were called as well as the local rescue squad. They had to cut open the trailer to get the horse out. He was scraped up, but was fine.
So - what made the horse want to jump out the window???? Well, it was the first time they used the trailer that spring and they hadn't bothered to check it out before they put the horses in. It turned out that there was a bee/hornet nest in the trailer and they were attacking the poor horse!
The moral of the story - ALWAYS check your trailer before you put your horses in!
I would love to hear from you - what type of unique horse trailers have you found in your travels? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Include pictures of the trailer if possible. I am looking for new, old, bad, outstanding, strange locations or strange cargo for trailers. Anything out of the ordinary.
