My personal mission this last week has been to replace the wooden floor in my horsebox. I’ve known it’s been rather squidgy for a little while now but with the metal base of the van being intact I’ve not worried about it too much.
A number of factors came together recently meaning that this horrid job rose to the top of my to-do list:
- Abbey still isn’t travelling well and I’m sure that the stress of it caused her ulcers. Is it because she doesn’t like the floor? It’s another thing to eliminate before I restart the travel training (loading and short journeys daily).
- Urine-soaked wood will eventually start to compromise the van’s metal floor and that is going to be a lot harder and more expensive to fix
- I’ve got some time to do it (and the OH took a week’s holiday….I can’t think of a better way of spending Valentines than lifting horse wee soaked rotted wood….can you?!)
