    In Claremore there is Woodridge Farm, a big Warmblood farm. They have a "mare motel" and are located close to motels, etc. Are you coming up 1-44 from Claremore through Springfield? I am 5 minutes off of I-44 near Springfield, I have stalls and turnout if you get in a bind.

    You might want to have some tubes of Ulcergard for the trip. Start giving a quarter tube, a couple of days before you leave. Give every day, while making the trek and a couple of days more, after you arrive.

    Even though you may think that your horses are fine, traveling is one of the big stressors for most of them. Their feeding schedule is usually interrupted. I have found that my mare does not want to drink on the trailer during a long trip, either. I solved that one by giving her some soupy beet pulp, when we stop to fill up with gas. You could substitute with alfalfa soup, too.

    Of course, your horses could be awesome and not need any of this. Maybe you could ask your Vet what he thinks about the potential for ulcers?

    Have a safe journey! Welcome to KY. We love living here.
    When in Doubt, let your horse do the Thinking!

    Just be careful driving through KY that time of year, we're prone to weather being up n' down and black ice isn't uncommon. At the time you're coming in is usually when we get into the freezes, after everything being damp through December.

    Look me up when you're here, and PMs are welcome anytime
