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!
