Good, sounds like your hard work paid off. Glad the BI inspector was able to help so you can move her. Will the old owner give you the current BI that you paid for?
Yes,it does pay to make sure what the laws are. Had an interesting scenerio from a dog show back east, seems folks were stopped and asked for rabies certificates on the show dogs they had. They did not carry them and got in trouble, fined and almost had their dogs confiscated. They did not know the laws crossing state lines. Like I said about the horses and BI, carry rabies certificates in your vehicles and if you ever get stopped, you have them
Copies of these kind of things don't cost much, and sure saves alot of headache. Most law enforcement are nice, but what happens if you just get one that is a "stick by the book" kinda officer and you do not have the correct paperwork, horses or dogs???? Not worth the risk or trouble if you ask me.
