So here’s the big horse trailer I was talking about:
The whole inside of the thing used to look like this:
We put in a divider wall, with a door:
And built out the front part for us. On the left here you see the inside of the door into the horse part, and the closet in the middle, and on the right the beginning of the shelves and bench.
This is looking in through the door, again the shelves (above) and the bench. Randy built all the frames out of angle iron, used corrugated metal for the roof and to build out the bench storage, and sheets of wood made to look like individual pieces for the walls.
This is the bed, with shelves on either side. As you can see we haven't finished the corners yet, but we do have the insulation in and boy does it help keep us warm when we camp in the mountains!
I also learned early on not to complain about the “junk” Randy drags home. Sometimes it sits quite a while, but eventually the things that to most people would be useless junk are either used to make something we need, or sold to someone else who recognizes the potential, or traded for something we need. His projects take a back seat quite often while he takes care of me. He’s fixed me up with a golf cart and trailer so I can feed without carrying all the hay and buckets etc. He’s built me a hay barn, repaired and put up a pellet dispenser, and had a container hauled in to be my tack room/barn.
He’s got most of the horse pens rigged with automatic water, and we’re gathering what we need to finish the rest.
He made an outdoor firepit thingy too, to sit around on cold nights.
He’s made me a lot of cool stuff out of old horseshoes and then, when my ideas got as crazy as his do, he taught me to weld so I could make my own cool stuff. But that’s a post all on its own… (I promise Debby, SOON!)
