shipping from private farm 2 private farm across state lines (into KY)
Would you get a health certificate for this? Or would you just figure a current coggins is good enough if you got pulled over?
Technically yes, but the chances of actually needing it are very small. I find that in the area I'm in (MD, PA, DE area)- most people don't use them because its very impractical (seriously, crossing my back yard is crossing the state line)

A health cert is short money so you might as well get one just in case. I've never paid more than $25. I've always gotten health certs when leaving a state- nearly every state except when crossing between NH, RI, and MA. Even going MA to CT or MA to NY. Copy of coggins included except in CA and AZ.
That said, not once have I've been asked for paperwork in the northeast, southeast, through the midwest including Texas. I've always had to produce paperwork (health certs only) in the states of New Mexico, Arizona, and California at the AG stations.
Chances are you will never be asked to produce a health cert on the east coast. Some states do not require it and only care about coggins. On the east coast, the main reason *why* I had health certs was for showing/ exposition purposes or I was hauling horses that did I did not own.

You have to have health papers and coggins in KY. I would not drive a horse into the state without them. I've been pulled over on I-64 before by a cop whose job it was to specifically pull over horse trailers and check. They are really serious about it.
