I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Had to pop back in, I just had a thought. If we go with "a few weeks", could we shoot for after the 24th?? That's pay day, and would give us a bit of a cash back up just in case anything happens along the way. (Knock on wood)

Better prepared than sorry.

I would just be upfront about the ear when you call them, but I don't think it would fail her... Not sure. I'm sure if you told them the situation and why she was moving to begin with, they would be understanding of it. It's not like its contagious.

80$? Jeez. The most I've ever been charged was 50$ for after hours emergency (everything happens on Sunday). It's normally 30$ for a farm call. Maybe I'm just lucky.

I'm very happy everything is gonna work out! That poor girl needs a break. Iwill be looking forward to here how she does :)

Faydes, please message me when you get a paypal or whatever account set up. I am keeping up with this thread, but not necessarily every page.

End, no I don't think they will fail her for an injury. It's something that could be passed along to other horses that would get a fail.

I spent a couple years in San Antonio a few lifetimes ago when I was in the Air Force. I hauled all over the state to AQHA and NRHA shows almost every weekend. I love Tex-Mex.

We could probably use a place to park our van over night, then we could head out in the morning for a nice leisurely drive north.

LOL, your house sounds exactly like ours...indoors: 2 dogs, 8 cats, 2 guinea pigs, 2 rats, 6 ferrets, 2 parakeets. Outdoors: 2 more cats (barn), 20 chickens (free range), 5 rabbits (caged) and 3 rabbits (free range). Oh yeah, four people.

The vet who has been working with Kenzie may be able to just write you a health certificate upon asking, since he knows everything she has been through and should know that nothing she had is still contagious. It just needs to be on an official health certificate form, he or she should know what is needed.

As for her halter, she should be healed a bit by the time we go. Do you think if I get a big fleece crown piece cover it would pad her up enough? I guess just go with the neck wrap as long as she cooperates until then. If I am able to get a stock trailer, she may not even need to be tied at all. Some ride better loose.

Grrr...gotta get some sleep...just can't.

Yep, a whole whopping $80 xD the 'flat' farm call fee is $55.50, but that only covers the first ten miles. Every mile extra that they drive is $1.50 and we happen to be 28 miles from the nearest vet, which brings us to $82.50. If we have a holiday, night, or weekend case, its another $20. THAT is why Kenzie's vet bills have been so expensive, not because we used 'every force in existence' to heal her. Really, through all of her EHV and such, she only got IV fluids, two rounds of antibiotics, an anti-inflamatory, some salve for her pressure sores and shoulder, and thats about it xD after the fact we did get some Px suppliments for her, but I just picked that up myself. Normally we haul our horses out TO the vet, but she was obviously far too sick to be hauled even a few minutes, much less 45 minutes or more.

I think a fleece crown piece will work just fine Fayde. We can always leave it a bit loose if we need to, so it doesn't bother her ear too much, and if you do get that stock trailer, by all means leave her loose. Thats what we did when we hauled her an hour and a half to the farrier, and she did just fine. A little off balance since it was her first time in the trailer in a while and she was still weak, but I think the rubber mats we used helped with traction a little.

At that point I'm still going to have two bags of Nutrena Mare and Foal, and half pr more of the DuMor. I can bring you that if you want, since none of our other horses eat that and it would just sit in my garage. Depending on what you want, I can give her a tube of Probios as well, a few hours before the trip.

The week of the 24th sounds just fine to me. Maybe over that weekend or something?

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
