So...Max will be a complete arse tomorrow. That's all there is to it. We are going to try and get him used to the new straight load 2-horse trailer. Should be tall enough (I was ADAMANT about head room) and is definitely wide enough. But I have some questions. We bought 2 stall mats, each measuring 4' x 6' and 3/4" thick. One mat will cover either side, but we will have to cut the second mat to have it fit perfectly. Which side of the trailer should he ride on? I'd like to load him into the passenger side, but have been reading they have to be loaded onto the driver's side. Is this true, and if so...why? I have to give him his shots today. He's UTD on Coggins and will be getting health papers written up early tomorrow morning. We're hoping for a nice training session today so that he'll load nice and smooth into the trailer tomorrow morning. (Which he won't...because he's an arse.) I guess I'm just venting my frustrations and worries about this trip..Should only be for 2 hours where he'll be boarded for a short while. Any ideas to make this easier? We'll be putting some space between the trailer and the fence so that we can use the fence as a "roundup" should the need arise. ETA: He'll be getting these vaccines: 5 in one which includes: West Nile, Rhino, Flu, East and West Sleeping Sickness and Tetanus. Rabies Strangles Any others??? And should I give them to him all at once? Should I alternate between sites on him? Rabies on one side of his neck, 5 in one on the other side? The Strangles is through the nose.
