Horse Trailer that Kenny Gunter built for Redman.
Now owned by Joe Dreyfuss of Vail, AZ

"I know all the Haverty's and went to school with all of Dale's kids. This trailer is the ultimate cowboy's homemade trailer. Made with part of a metal tank, the crossovers are sucker rod and the floor I replaced two years ago was three inch plank that came from the railroad which passes through part of the Gunter's ranch"

When Joe was asked if he had ever contacted the AQHA Museum or the Cowboy Hall of Fame, to see if they would like the trailer... this was Joe's reply:
"They don't have that kind of money."

"If you look at the front green window there is a crack. That was put in the trailer while Uncle Buckshot (Buckshot Sorrels) was hauling a steer named Link down to a movie location in Nogales, AZ. Link was owned by Rex Glenn, Buckshot's brother-in-law and Kenny Gunter's roping partner. Buckshot offered to fix it for me, but I was smart enough to appreciate the History of it."  -- Joe Dreyfuss
