Going to look into it, the farmer where we keep the horses definitely has a welder, he was fixing a gate the other day which gave the horses something new to look at!

THis whole topic rather died with all the problems I had with the van but I am pleased to say that now it has a new engine and I have spent vast amounts of money on it, it seems (touch wood) to be reliable - it has now done the 600 km trip to britany 5 times and has been behaved perfectly :thumbup: :thumbup:

.... and the horse part is fantastic. Miracle travelled down in it fine when I bought her from Brittany and Bandit and Annie were good yesterday - we ended loading Annie first so Bandit had to come up the ramp and turn right into his stall, but it didnt take him long to figure it out.

I dont think I'd want anything much bigger in it, probably 15.2 max but it works well and I'm looking forward to getting some use out of it now

Looking back I see the blog started at the end of June 2013 - that's almost 2 years, and an awful lot of stress, ago :random: :random:

:thumbup: Needless to say. I haven't got anywhere with doing something similar, the money's just never there. Kids are so expensive!

As I wasn't driving, I could watch the video, it's fascinating to watch them and a really good idea to be able to keep an eye on them!

Tanya had a video in her trailer which was fun, especially as when we stopped at the boulangerie to get some breakfast, it picked up the CCTV in the shop :lol:
