I leave on the 18th!!
Which is this Saturday! (Didn't know where to put this!)
Oh I already miss my horse; I hate to admit it but I had a good cry. I'm just trying to sort out horse insurance now. I've gotten quotes from three different companies and I'm trying to find the one that is most affordable but also most satisfying to my horse's needs.
So apparently when one goes to New Zealand via plane, one gets sprayed with some sort of chemical to kill any bacteria and basically "sterilize" oneself. Isn't that crazy?! So I'm reconsidering taking my horse boots as no matter how hard I scrub or hose them down, they may never be clean enough for New Zealand's standards.
So I may put them into storage and buy ones when I get there.
But some good news... I got the job I interviewed for so I have a way to pay for Sky comfortably, get some insurance for him, and save up for my own place for myself and a way to get back to the USA!
I am stressed out as we have packers coming tomorrow at 8am and they'll be here till around 5-6pm sadly.. so I may or may not have time to go out and see Sky (he's 40 mins away) and then Friday they come to store the car here since we aren't taking it with (they drive on the left side and so we're going to get a rental and get a car insurance.)
So Thursday is my last chance, unless something crazy happens, and then Saturday I leave. How sad!!! But exciting at the same time.
The longest of the flights is 14 and a half hours.. phew! And Ha ha ha I picked the farthest seat from my family as they drive me crazy ;) affectionately of course.
So horse insurance, automatic bill pay for farrier/board/vet, and paying someone to take care and exercise/groom Sky. Anything else I'm missing?
And any support you want to offer that doesn't include wanting to take my horse off of my hands :P I do bite!
