How long before it is safe to ship a mare/foal long distance?
How old should a foal be before it is safe to ship it long distance? By long distance I mean a 6.5 hour drive with a professional hauler, box stall, air ride van etc . . . ? I have moved for a new job and I left my mare to foal out with an experienced breeder in my old area. My original plan was to wait until baby's is weaned to ship them, but now I am thinking I might like to have them here sooner. How long should I wait? Related question, how long would you be willing to ship a mare/foal for an inspection?
