thanks guys! Graciela - I know where you're coming from with the possibility of wraps slipping etc. On one hand she will be in a small trailer with not a lot of room to move so that's a plus because even if one WERE to somehow come undone, she wouldn't be able to freak out too much lol (not that I really think she would anyway), but I do know it's a possibility. I understand that shippers probably don't want the hassle but since it's ME, I don't mind re-doing them along the way whenever they need it.
That said, I will be travelling with myself, the boyfriend, our dog, and the horse... so we're going to be stopping fairly often and I'll have lots of chances to check on her.
equiniphile - I'm going to have to buy quilts/no bows online, what thickness is "thick"?
