    Shipping Minis

    Hi Debby. I'm actually looking at a cargo van not a trailer. I would never put any animal in an enclosed trailer like that.

    Good to know about the UHaul. Thank you Magic. Another question to all you breeders out there. If a client showed up with a U Haul van would that be a deal breaker or is that a "normal" form of transport?

    I most definitely will have someone with me if that is how I end up having to bring him home. Thank you for the information of the tarp and mat. That sounds perfect. I really appreciate all your help.

    Thank you very much Magic. I hadn't thought about the van. I may have to check it out.

    Shipping Minis

    Hi all. Here I go with the questions. Lol It's been many, many years since I had horses shipped. I'm considering a mini in VA which is about 420 miles from me. Does anyone have a general idea on how much shipping that distance might cost? I also thought about trying to rent a truck and trailer and going myself. It's only a 6 hour drive and I can do that no problem. I just don't have my own equipment. Are there places out there that rent truck and trailer or even just a trailer if I could get a truck? Anyone who lives in Western North Carolina who might be interested in a road trip sometime next month? Lol I appreciate any help, info or advice y'all have to offer.

    Hi Miniv and thank you for the welcome. I actually spoke to someone in one of the local clubs yesterday and I'm looking into another that is near me. Things are moving forward and I couldn't be happier.

    Thank you for the welcome Cayuse and Mona. I really appreciate it. I had my last mini stallion shipped to me across the country but that was 20 years ago. Lol With all this Twitter and Instagram stuff out there that I don't use I fear I'm a bit behind the times sometimes. I've actually been in contact with a breeder I found only 30 miles from me. Unfortunately they sold out of most of their stock in October and don't have anything for sale at the moment but they know people who do so my search may just have gotten a whole lot easier. I've had a big smile on my face all day and will probably be dreaming of minis tonight.

    Thank you Jeannie. I hope that you and your minis love Aiken. It is nice there. I'd like to do some trail driving myself. Maybe show. I know eventually I'd like to breed on a small scale. I'm a horse lady that's had to live too much of her life without horses. Now that I'm finally in a position to own again I won't let that happen anymore.

    Hi all, I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself so y'all didn't think you'd picked up some weird lurker on here. Lol My name is Mel and I live in Western NC. I'm looking to get my first mini in 18 years. Life sure has a way of taking hold. A lot has changed in the time I've been away it seems. A lot of the breeders I knew of are gone and now it appears it's going to be difficult trying to find what I'm looking for without having to go more than my desired distance. I've bought horses online before but it was a long time ago and I'm rusty. I fear I offended one breeder asking for a video and questions about possible vices or conformation faults. Is that not done any more? Is there a new, better way? I'm eager to learn. I'll probably need some help, or at least a shoulder or two to lean on, before this is all said and done so wanted to introduce myself politely before I make a pest of myself later. Lol
