    Transporting a horse from LA to MI

    We're moving to Michigan in August and while Harry is up for sale to a more appropriate home, I want to bring Grant up there. I don't own a trailer, so I'm curious how hiring a company to transport works. Does anyone have any advice, ideas, recommendations on companies? Moving him in August isn't set in stone. I'm thinking it may be better for him to move Spring 2013 so he's not thrown straight into more extreme weather changes, compared to here in Louisiana.

    As long as horse is up there before winter is in full force, August would be fine to move in. I trailered up here to MO from LA, (lower Alabama) in September, and horses did fine, haired out well, and came through bad winter just great.

    Contact several of the companies around you and see if any are trailering anything else up, TB's or STB's move around all the time to tracks, or back home to their farms, so should not be too hard to find someone to haul.

    And can put message out on FB groups to see if someone that will be down your way in August, showing maybe, could trailer back, for you.
