Re: [RC] goggles and open trailers - Sullivan


----- Original Message -----
From: "Bonnie Davis" <horsecamping@xxxxxxxxx>
 Slant loads were
invented not for the comfort or safety of the horse but to get more
animals
in a trailer so we can haul more horses faster.

I disagree with this, Bonnie.  I find they are much safer and comfortable
than the old traditional straight loads.
If you put a horse in a straight load with the middle divider out, they will
naturally stand on the slant.  The slant loads
are safer in terms of loading and unloading...and you have the option to
turn them around and let them ride backwards, which is something many will
also choose.
