    Do not read bad trailer stories. I had white knuckles the first 5 times I trailered my horse. I check every connection & window twice before I leave. I have been quite lucky.

    I do think the vet could have been called. If Martin was mine that would have happened. If surgery was needed I would not have done surgery. Vet calls are not hero measures.

    I thought the vet was called last night. I did not know about the wishes of the "owner" until after Martin was gone.

    Some deaths are not preventable. If Martin needed a $100 vet call his owner...
