Shipping boots--needed or not?
Okay, I apologize for the amount of threads I keep making but I just really enjoy having second, third, fifty opinions from people who have been in my shoes or otherwise are knowledgeable.
Sky will be moved in a trailer from Colorado to Washington D.C/Virginia. He's easy to trailer load, he doesn't fuss too much in the trailer aside from one time when his rope halter came undone (that was so scary....ughh never again!!!) and he is okay with backing out of a trailer.
But he has never been in the trailer for more than 4 hours, and this seems to be a multiple day trip if they stop and get out and run around, etc.
Not sure if my friend is helping or if I am requiring the assistance of a professional equine transport company (I've already gotten quotes, and will be bugging you guys about that too!)
But would it be a good idea to have him in shipping boots or polos or something? And what about the halter? I really don't want him coming undone, and I'm not sure if he'll need one depending on which route we go with (friend via. service)
