My son, David and I went out and bought a used, and very rusty 30 foot gooseneck stock trailer today. It will become the official livestock hauler of Ljubomir Farms:
On the way home, we stopped for ice cream and snapped a few more.
Its pretty rough, but I know a guy down in Liberty Hill who brings these old trailers back to life with a little sandblasting, paint and replacing the plastic trim and running lights/lenses. Here are some before and after examples of his work.
A couple of years ago he did an old two horse trailer I had. So I am confident this old thing will look fantastic when I get it back. I am dropping it off after church tomorrow and I will take some more pictures of the finished product. We will be hauling the entire Ljubomir ensemble of creatures all the way to Montana in it at the end of the summer.
Here’s his Craigslist ad for anyone local who wants to restore something:
