RE: [RC] [RC] Trailer Loading - Burnett, Elly

Title: RE: [RC] [RC] Trailer Loading

Yes, there is definitely a good divider between the horses!  Yeek, I'd never load two horses that hadn't met without that!

Also, we have scheduled a meet-and-greet for the day before.  Luckily, my mare looooooooves geldings, so I think it should go pretty well.

Wow, it depends... I would load the good loader first, then the other
one... I load all the time with horses my horses don't know, but I
have a good partition between horses so I don't worry about them, is
there a good nose partition between the horses in your trailer?

If you have time you could introduce them, but it can take time, I
mean weeks of time to get horses comfortable with each other...

Raven's Grandpa always said put Vics on the nose when you introduce
horses, I have never done that before... but maybe others have used a
dab or two, lightly as to not burn the soft tissue of the nostril...
