Thank so much sky. I was worried about hiring someone and them just taking off with my gelding! Should I use shipping boots? Also if there was a divider, do you think it would be safe to haul my nubian goat also?

There is no question you will need a vet check, a coggins test and a statement of ownership. It is required that these documents accompany horses shipped across or within most all state lines. I have moved my horses all over this country...and never used shipping boots, but I do use bell boots, some of the time. It is more likely that they will get an injury around the coronet than anywhere else...in my experience, anyway. And, if its during the summer, heat is going to be a concern that you have to manage well...full leg shipping boots would be super hot.

Yeah I don't see why not. Just make sure that you learn of all the things required to haul Mr. Goat too

As for shipping boots.. honestly it's better to go bare because shipping boots can slip. However if you stop frequently enough, you could get away with them. Though personally I wouldn't.

Yeah that's a sound worry to have, as long as you find a reputable hauling company. But if you do it yourself, just be extra prepared. It helps to have trailer/travel insurance. Someone linked a really fab company on here somewhere. Will PM it to you asap when I get to my computer (on my mom's atm)

uShip - The Online Shipping Marketplace - Ship Freight, Furniture, Cars or Moves

Get a bid on shipping your horse from these folks.

They haul horses all over the US.

As an aside, Sky, what on earth is a transportation permit? I'm from Colorado and hauled horses around there for years. We never had such a thing. A brand inspection, yes, and a health cert. For interstate transport. I don't recall being required to have a certificate of ownership either, but I could simply have forgotten. We certainly did not need one to transport the horse overseas.

For a 16 hour haul, I would have considered doing it myself. But I am (or was :() pretty experienced driving a trailer. For 40 hours, or 2000 miles, we used the professionals as the horse got a better ride in their huge lorries and the companionship of other horses. I can't imagine 40 hours stuck in a hot, rattling two-horse bumper pull would be much fun for her!

A bi is proof of ownership. No bi is required in the states she is going through; some form of proof of ownership is required.

This is from this website Brand Inspection,

Quote:
B. If you have a Lifetime Livestock Transportation Permit for your animal, be ready to produce it at the time of inspection when asked for a proof of ownership. If you wish to obtain a Lifetime Permit, the brand inspector must physically inspect the animal and proof of ownership must be shown to the inspector.
The cost of obtaining this permit is $10.00 per animal and is valid for moving the animal out of the Ownership Area (West River) for the life of the animal or until ownership of the animal changes, at which time the permit becomes invalid.
Required to haul your horse out of state (and within apparently) you can get in trouble for not having one. It's basically saying "I am allowed to be hauling this horse." Mainly for out of state use as CO is lenient on requirement for transportation permit. Other states are not

Lots of arguing threads re: shipping boots, so I won't post MHO. BUT, if you want to use them, be sure that your horse is desensitized to them at least one week before your move. Easy-going horses will try to kick them off their back feet, and some horses panic the 1st time wearing them.
Agreed re: Coggins and health papers. Make copies, too, to travel with you. We do.
