[RC] Trailer Loading - Burnett, Elly

I have a possibly dumb question about trailer loading.  I'm driving over
to pick up my new endurance prospect this weekend (yay!), and will be
bringing him back here for the remainder of the school year, which is
another two weeks.  He'll be kept at a different barn from my draft mare
for the interim.

After this two weeks, we'll be trailering down to my REAL home (Boise),
for the summer.  And both horses are coming.

So my question is this.  I have a draft mare and now the araloosa
(Cricket).  I have a two horse straight load trailer, and I'm worried
about loading another horse in a trailer with a horse it has never met.
Does that make sense?  So then, which should I load first?  The draft
mare is fairly unflappable, but HATES the trailer, and is possibly
flappable in that situation.  She also hates anything, especially other
horses, coming up behind her.  I have no idea how Cricket will be,
except that he's young and green.  Should I trailer one to the other
place and unload and allow them to meet first before loading them both
