BUILDING A HORSE TRAILER BAR
The paint on Winston The Photo Booth was barely dry, but we felt a need to add a mobile bar to our fleet (of one). A local Craigslist find looked promising in the photos…however, the old saying “good from afar, far from good” turned out to be true. Not saying it was rusty, but if my primary health care provider worked on Saturdays, I’d have been over “tout suite” for a tetanus shot.
Next up was another Craigslist beauty. This one was perfect, if a little far away. Two-horse straight-load trailer from the early ’90’s. Nice condition and the price was well below anything else out there (#underpriced). I emailed the seller and he gleefully informed me that 3 people were coming over to see it in the morning and it would probably be gone before I could get there. I thanked him for getting back to me and asked to be informed if it didn’t sell. Of course it sold… it was worth twice as much.
Back to the drawing board and the money we had taken out of the bank for the first trailer visit was starting to be frittered away on tacos and beer.
So I had never used Facebook Marketplace before. It had horse trailers and the bonus of being able to troll the seller before inquiring about the trailer. Mr. Zuckerburg now has me tagged as a rancher and knows more about me than my parents… but hey it’s free. So a quick search and up pops Maggie, a 1973 Lanes Trailer in Emory, TX…perfect.
