nvr2Many- sounds like she'll be going home the week of the 24th or sometime shortly after :)
I hear you about the insane heat down there. The worst trailering incident I ever had was in the summer in Texas when the air conditioner went out on our 6 horse fully enclosed trailer. We didn't realize it had gone out until one of the horses got so hot she passed out and fell and cause a major ruckus that had our rig swinging all over the road. Scary stuff that heat.


We have feelers out all over the place and are still hoping to snag a stock trailer. If I had a truck set up for a goose neck we would be in business, but finding a bumper pull is proving a bit more difficult. At least we have a bit of time to try.

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.

OK, let's figure out a firm(ish) date so I can tell the folks we are asking just exactly when I want to borrow their trailer. Silly me, "can I borrow a trailer?"..."when?, uummmm, I'm not sure"...

I prefer to travel during the week due too lighter traffic on the road, so would prefer leaving here Wednesday the 24th. We would leave early in the am and probably get in around 8:00 pm or so. We could lay over that night and visit with folks and whatnot. Then load up Thursday morning and head for home.

Now, I know you are still in school and if you can't get away for a bit that morning, I will just grit my teeth and haul over the weekend. School comes first!!

Let me know what you think.

With as many people as are wanting to donate, I'm thinking there may be a bit left over!! I was already thinking about offering any left over funds to the rescue for all they have done for her up to this point.

I will keep a running total here in this thread, but not mention who donated what. As of a few minutes ago, there is already $110.

I don't know how to thank you all, you are just such amazing folks!!
Thank you. If you get more, count my $50 to feed and hay when she gets home.

I don't mean to question you, but in a way I do. I can see you are a good person, but you know so many people are just awful. I donated to you, because I don't think you are iffy, but maybe a tally will help others to donate. Maybe others are suspicious, and would feel more comfortable if there is just a tally here.

Thank you for taking her, and I hate questioning at all, but I think you get what I am saying, badly. As you are a good person.

Where do you donate? Can you post the link somewhere on every page so folks don't have to go searching through all the posts? Maybe bolded with your running tally. It sure would help me and remind ppl of the mission.

I did mapquest gas estimate from Houson to Lexington, using my truck at 9.5 miles per gallon and it was $800 plus.
Good luck, this horse sure is loved.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

How is the ear doing? Is she letting you doctor it? How is she doing with leading? Is the rescue letting her go w/out an adoption fee?

Even if it costs $400 for the gas, there will be a lot more start up expense, so it is ok if it goes well over. Kenzie still has a ways to go before she is totally home free. I am so glad that she has a home.

I'm having issues with the forums pm function, so Endiku is pm'ing those interested the e-mail addy to use with PayPal's "send money to friends and family" option.

If anyone doesn't have PayPal and would still like to help, we can send you a snail mail address to send a check or money order to.

I did a bit of quick math and came up with just shy of $400 dollars worth of gas. But I live quite a bit closer than Lex, only about 750 or so miles each way. And the last trip we took hauling a trailer with my van, we averaged 13 mpg. Certainly not chump change, but not to terrible really.
