Do you know what’s on my trailer?  I took this picture and posted it to Twitter and asked the same question.  I had guesses of jumbo sized lincoln logs, firewood, sheds, gazebos, house boats,  mini building, wood for a log cabin, chicken coops and dog houses.

They are horse jumps for cross country horse competition.  I doubt many of you would’ve guessed it.  I sure wouldn’t have.  I loaded them near Charlottesville, VA and had two stops: the first in western North Carolina and the final in south Florida.  Both delivery locations were national equestrian centers with impressive facilities.  The Florida location was hosting a show at the time and even the Budweiser Clydesdales were there.  Unfortunately, I was too busy to get a picture of them.Below are pictures of my delivery at the Florida facility.

This next picture was taken two days later at my home.  Talk about climate change!
