Regardless of whether you move back Canada or to Maine, you will need a health certificate. They are generally good for thirty days.
The safest thing to do is to call your vet and ask him which shots you need for either going into Canada or Maine. Part of his or her job as a vet is to either know or find out that information for his clients.
He will also ask you when you plan on moving. Filling out your health cert (for each horse) has to be co-ordinated with the date you leave Kansas because of the 30 day limit on it.
I moved three of my horses cross-country twice. I was only asked for their shot records twice and got pulled over at a livestock station in SoCal on my way OUT. I can tell you, they took the health cert & coggins papers out of hubby's hands and marched themselves out to the horse trailer to carefully examine each horse.
If they wouldn't have like the "smell" of something, they had every right to hold me up and/or seize my horses
So don't second-guess anything --- go straight to your vet
