    Well MARVELOUS husband has been working on building me a cage that fits in the bed of my Avalanche!!! This way I don't have to pull a trailer near as much as I used to did :wink: It is 57" Long X 43" Wide X 40" Tall! He made it with big eyelets on it corner at the top so it can be securely strapped down using the tiedown slots in the bed of my truck. We are having a canvas top made for it, so the top will be solid, and it should be finished and on there BY Wednesday :greengrin: so I will posts a couple more pics once we put it in the truck AND get the top on it (the paint was still wet when I took the last pics... which is why I don't have any pics of it in the truck). Well... I took TONS of pics, let my husband load them on photobucket, and (since he did a WONDERFUL job) he loaded a TON of the pics.... so I was being serious when I said TONS of pics! :slapfloor:

    Thanks everyone!! I will definitely relay the message to him :wink: I will have to say that I am VERY proud of him! He always does really nice work and he can build about anything he wants (as long as he makes it out of steel/metal... don't give him a piece of wood and a hammer :doh: ). I told him that he could probably make those cages and sale them! "Custom Goat Cage to fit your vehicle!" But he said "No, No, No! I am NOT making another one of those things!" :slapfloor: He will change his mind eventually though... hehehehe :shades: He started with a few sticks of steel and created this!! Of course the wire was already made... he just had to weld it to the frame he made, but still!

    Well I was trying to spare ya'll ALL of the pics he loaded..... but per Pam's request... :thumbup: Here are the rest of the pics I took during fabrication. Like I said, when we put it on the vehicle this evening I will take a few more, and then when the canvas top is finished and put on I will take some pics then as well :thumbup:
