Bob, which province and airport is this animal flying into? I would ask the seller to contact Agri Canada and explain to them the scenario and ask them EXACTLY what will be needed at this end when the animal arrives in order to clear customs immediately. No quarantine is needed but I am sure that a vet must sign off for them to be released, I would think, since they aren't going through any land border per say. With shippers, as Marilyn mentioned, they pay bonded charges for the animal arriving into this country. I would think it's not as easy as just putting the animal on the plane and having it arrive and the buyer picking it up and off they go. If that were the case then it would be smarter for us all here in Canada just to have our horses flown in from the U.S. and have less hassle than coming through a land border crossing.
