So I've been looking at both miniature horses and mammoth donkeys, and I've found a really excellent breeder of mammoths in OK that comes highly recommended. Their donkeys all go through a rigorous training process, and everyone I have spoken to that owns one of their animals is extremely happy with them.
But again, they're in OK - and I'm in PA! That's a 17 hour drive. Not IMPOSSIBLE, but definitely creates a lot of issues. So I'm wondering how hard it would be to ship an animal from there. I have never trailered anything in my life, and don't own a truck, so shipping would likely be the best I could do.
What's the furthest you've shipped an animal? How much did it wind up costing, and was it worth it in the long run?
