Haha funny you should ask!

Yes, I am getting nervous. Mostly about the long haul for her. I keep checking the weather forcasts too.

But behind the nervous feelings, I am anxious. Anxious to get her home with me finally. Its been a looooong month of waiting for this weekend to arrive.

I'll bet its been a rough month. I know I hate to wait for things, I'm really bad at it.
Be safe on your journey and let us know how it goes.

Hi all !!

We made the trip on Monday from KY to MD.
It took us 16 hours on the road to get Angel home.

She did wonderfully. What a brave girl she is! No complaints from her that we could see the entire trip. She seemed happy, at ease and content the entire time. We stopped often to give her a rest, more hay & to offer her water. She drank a lot on the way home, which eased my mind.

It rained through WV, which sucked because she did get wet, although she didnt get drenched. My husband decided at the last minute before we left to install plexi glass windows along the side. He made it so that he could easily remove them if the weather was nice or if she got hot.

I am glad he did because it kept her semi dry. She wasnt hot at all, so it worked out well.

Here she is in MD finally!

We have her out with Shelby. He is our little babysitter since he gets along with everyone. So all new horses get to spend a day or so with him before getting slowly introduced to the rest of the horses. Tomorrow we will most likely introduce her to the two other mares.

Yay! She is finally home with me.

Gotta love those gaited gals. I figured it was a Kentucky Mountain horse like Vida since you went to KY. Oh well that's what I get for figureing.
