    Regional name variants for vehicle that hauls animals

    So, after reading an article online, I think I've discovered that there may be several different regional names for the following items.

    I'm curious what you'd call each of the following, and whether you'd use different terms for them. Please post what you'd call them, and indicate your regional variant.


    1# In AmE, I'd call this a 'horse trailer'.



    #2 - In AmE, I might call this either a 'horse trailer', or a 'livestock trailer' (short form 'stock trailer').



    #3 & 4 - These next two I'd just call 'stock trailers'.

    In BrE, #1 is a horse box.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I agree with Ems, in BrE:

    #1 is a horse box

    and I would just call the others "livestock trailers", the same as AmE.

    I would refer to #1 as a "Horse Box", I may also refer to #2 as Horse Box as well, depending on what type of animal is being carried.
