When New Bedford's Sarah Simmons decided it was time to give up riding, she came up with a clever idea for what to do with her horse trailer. She converted the thing into a traveling ice cream bar, and it's available for private parties, graduations, weddings, or just about any reason you could think of to have an ice cream party.
