Vale Truckie

So it is with a heavy heart that I tell you all that my beloved Truckie is sold. I can't afford it and the parental units need some capital, so the old girl is out. We have had Truckie for around about 9 years and getting a horse truck was pretty much a life highlight. No longer stuck with a horse float with no room, sleeping in tents and scattering my gear for miles as I looked for the thing that was inevitably in the bottom of the boot of the car. Trucks have room for gear, and feed and hay, and a living area and I could take 4 horses. The luxury!!

Still all good things must come to an end, though I'm not sure how I will cope without it. So many miles I have traveled in the little truck. It was very noisy and a little smokey and and so slow. Every hill was climbed in third gear while cyclists and camper vans flew past. I overtook something once I think though I may have made that up to feel good lol.

Still the horses traveled well in her and I had many good nights sleep. On to the next i guess. Bye Truckie be good to your new owners.


  1. Oh the pain.. I still remember the day she arrived.. so exciting. And the first time going to pony club in it.. ha Connie looks cute here. Fare thee well truckie!

  2. Aw sad, but I'm sure the money made from selling her is greatly appreciated!
