To ship or not to ship myself?
I am moving to North Carolina (yay!) from NY in a few weeks and am debating whether to ship my two horses myself or hire a commercial shipper. It would certainly save a lot of $$ seeing as how the truck and trailer have to go down that way anyway. But, its only a 2h straight load BP Kingston and I'm wondering if the 14 hour drive is too long. Truck and Trailer are serviced and ready for the haul, just wondering if the horseys will be ok. What are your thoughts?
Along the same line, to blanket or not to blanket for the trip? I have one in a sheet and one in a blanket. One is barely bib clipped and the other is fuzzy head to toe. I'm thinking NOT. But, hmmm. Don't know. If I did, they'd be in Polarfleece sheets that wick and will keep dry.
