New Trailer!

So to transport our new pack llamas, we have been on the lookout for a new trailer. We have a homemade thin one horse trailer that just is not going to work. So we have been perusing Craigslist and found a 2006 Mirage 6x14 foot livestock/cargo trailer on Bainbridge Island for a good price. So after Tom got off of work, we drove/ferried to Bainbridge and looked at it in the dark and rain. We were supposed to bring a cashier's check, but since our bank was closed on Veterans Day we withdrew all the cash our ATM would let us and brought that. We are mailing the difference in a cashiers check. So we brought the trailer home. Here's a cell phone photo of the truck and trailer on the ferry that night:
And here's Rocky and Tom in the truck, waiting to get to the other side.
We had not eaten anything since lunch so stopped to eat on the way home. We got home quite late, and both of us had to work early yesterday so are tired.
After work and in daylight we found some minor issues with the trailer, not seen in the dark. But none the less it is a nice trailer that will serve our needs quite well.

Nice Trailer!

Thanks! We keep finding minor blemishes, but it is very functional and should last a long time. We can move pack llamas with it, but it will also be easier to load sheep and goats into, as opposed to our 4WD pick up bed. Plus Tom has thoughts of transporting motorcycles in the back.
