Thank you for all the advice! Turns out I probably won't be able to go up on Easter weekend (work stuff), but I will get one of siblings on taking care of her, and maybe can get my brother or my Dad to take her to the vet for her check up. The farrier is going to be there sometime the end of this month and I'll see if he can do her hooves. I don't know how she is on them for being a four year old and practically unhandled before going to the rescue. I'll see if the farrier can also check her teeth.
None of our horses have their vaccinations, as we try and be as organic as possible. I will ask the vet about it and go from there.
The shed, I will be talking to my brother about, I doubt we would put a cement floor in it, but I'll ask him about it. I don't have a lot of loose change floating around (horse owner, ya know. :-D ), and my parents don't have any money to speak of (long story, that comes down to my dad being unreliable). I will see what the finished product would cost and go from there. It's lots of fun trying to figure out what to do when you live 3 1/2 hours away, and then are going to be even farther away for the summer and into the fall.
The hopeful date of the horse getting delivered will be the 24th. I will keep ya'll updated for sure!
And Reckyroo and Jaydee, that is funny about getting the gender mixed up. We've done that a lot with calves. Also giving them a name alteration, such as Byran into Byranette, Aaron into Erin. LOL! Always fun!
I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane
