I hope so too. And I hope she doesn't just turn us around and send us home when she see's the rust on this poor trailer I'm afraid she's going to be "Your putting her in THAT? I don't think so!!" It looks so ugly, but I promise it IS safe!


OK, so far, the game plan is for us to leave early morning Friday and run straight through. We'll hit a truckstop to sleep Friday night and meet you all at the barn Saturday morning...wait, will your folks be able to be at the barn Sat morning? I didn't think about that. We would really be honored to meet them, as well as you and the BO. If they can't be there, let me know and we'll adjust things a bit.

We were hoping to spend a bit visiting Saturday morning, then head out. I found a place a bit south of Jackson MS that we are looking at to stop for the night and let Kenzie out of the trailer to rest. I haven't called them yet, since we are still sorting out the details, but most only need 24 or 48 hours notice. As soon as we iron out the final details, I'll give them a call. We should be able to make it there by 6 or 7 pm, so she will have a good long night to rest up. Then back on the road again Sunday morning and headed for home!!

Let me know what you think, and we'll get things officially scheduled.

Oh yeah, I guess I should see if I can get a bale of hay and a 5 gallon container of her normal water. She will be more inclined to eat and drink when we stop, if it is her usual nommies. Though I probably won't offer her more than a few nibbles of hard feed while she is stressed, she needs all the hay we can get her too eat.

OK, gotta hit the silly "submit reply" button before I have a novel here!

Wait,, have you not had any conversation with the BO about getting Kenzie?

I would really hate to drive that far with trailer in tow to have them say they had no intentions of letting her go that far. With that said, I almost wish I were still in Columbus,Ms. As I could have offered y'all a stay with 5 acres and a barn stall with run out paddock for Kenzie to rest some from the ride.

I can't wait to see more updates on this story.

Everything has been approved and all is good, we just haven't actually spoken personally, but Endiku has been our "broker" for the deal.

Oh my...8 days!!

I wasn't doubting Endiku, its not hard to see the honesty oozing out of her. I just noticed the comment about not hearing from the BO and it caught my radar.

There is the sweetest woman in Vicksburg, MS that does overnight boarding, if Jackson does not work out. She runs a handicapped riding barn there.Handicapped & Therapeutic Riding Centers Mississippi - New Mexico

It is Rainbow Farm.

Haha, sorry to alarm anyone. Roadyy, BO has okayed everything so far, knows Fayde is from Kentucky, knows Kenzie is going all the way up there, etc etc. She's the one who has had to do all of the coggin and health certificate paperwork, and she's the one who will be signing the bill of sale when its all said and done. The only minimally iffy thing that I've had with her was that she was worried about Kenzie's ear and traveling that far with it only half way healed. The vet said she should be just fine now that it's pretty much closed up and re-attached though, which has eased her mind about it. BO also has Fayde's contact info, but I've left it up to her to contact fayde whenever she felt the need. She has been rediculously busy between the fundraiser that we just held, running normal barn activities, going back to school, raising three kids, and helping plan a wedding, so I'm not alarmed by the fact that she hasn't called just yet. Poor lady has even more going on than I do right now!

Don't worry too much about the trailer, Fayde xD maybe let her know that its rusty but in good working condition when she calls just so she isn't alarmed, but you ought to have seen our old trailer. We just bought a nice new one about a year ago, but before that we had what we called the 'fire sale' trailer. It was donated to us and boy was it a sight!

Game plan sounds good to me, but I won't say 'perfect! Do that!' until BO has had her say xD I'll prod her to call you again when I go out in the morning. I think it will definitely ease her mind that you guys are planning to make a stop for the evening so Kenzie/'Badabing' can rest. For Saturday morning, I'm sure I can drag at least one parent out to meet you guys. What time that morning do you think you would want to come out? I have to start preparing for all of my therapeudic riding kids at about 8:45 but that doesn't have to change anything, it just means I'll have to say my goodbyes then so I can go start catching therapy horses and saddling them up. BO's hubby is out there at... 7:30? On Saturday mornings, I think, to get the horses ready for riding lessons (he's the riding instructor too).

For the hay, we're feeding round bales right now (cheaper) and I've just been pulling a bunch off of it each day, but I could probably ask for square bale from the same hay guy OR just fill an old feed bag with hay from the round bale and it should work just as well. Your choice. What should we put water in, though, that wouldn't spill out? A tidy cat bucket? LOL. I have those two bags of feed in my garage too, as well as the bag of DuMor if they'll fit in your trailer, and you can just start feeding that when she's all settled in at your place. I have her normal feed schedule written out as well as the past few dates of when she has been wormed and what with, in case you need that.

Do you think I should just not offer her morning grain Saturday morning? I'd hate for her to have a full belly on the beginning of the trip, which is when she's likely to be the most nervous. I think this will be her first time being trailered completely by herself.

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

I can bring one of my large hay nets and fill it, and I have 5 gallon water containers that we take when we go camping, so I'll bring one or two of those too.

We have plenty of room in the van for any feed you want to send along. But if you can use it for any of the horses at the barn, that would be good too.
