first time my foal is going on a float

I have a miniature foal who is just over 4 months old. Where taking her and her mum who is a good floater to another yard so our friend can look after her. This is her first time floating so I dont know what to do or expect? Will she be ok if I tie her up next to her mum?

Anytime I have transported a mare and foal the mare gets tied and I leave the foal loose. Preferably with dividers removed unless it's a stock trailer with a full width gate that closes to make a stall.

Darn. I read the title and thought that you were putting a foal on a parade float. I was hoping for pictures.
