Re: RC: Re: CTR (delete if you're sick of this subject)
Several years ago there was an incident of two horses tied to the trailer over
night - one on each at the back of the trailer so they could see each other.
The back doors slid down into the hinges. They were very heavy. During the
night one horse got his rope under the corner of the door, paniced a jerked
back. This put the door airbourn right into the other horse. Quite nasty. I
don't like to tie to the trailer for any prolonged period of time. A tie line
running between trailers or from a trailer to a tree is o'kay, but not to the
side of the trailer.
