Everyone was up and on the road to make the border crossing and the vet check early yesterday.
Lindsey ran into a bit of problem. Luckily I was near my computer and could fill in the US Border Agent with more documentation. I thought we had the right documents along (that was on my “border crossing” list) but found out we need to add more details to make it work. The agent was very helpful and a quick email to him from my desk solved the problem. Now both trailers were headed to the vet check and then back on the road!

The weather cooperated and the roads were good. The passes over the Rockies were clear and now the horses are all bedded down in their second overnight horsey hotel. They are all triple blanketed overnight as the stable is unheated. In hindsight, I am a bit thankful that we clipped them early this year. They are all quite fuzzy and will need to be re-clipped in California but sleeping in Idaho Falls, in an unheated stable…the fuzz will help keep them cozier!
Today is the big travel day. Idaho Falls to San Diego. It’s going to be a very long day. Salt Lake City, Vegas, Los Angeles and then the gorgeous drive into San Diego. At least the roads will be clear of snow and ice the further south they drive…
So looking forward to seeing the arrival photos of all six horses (and 4 humans!!!) at Arroyo tonight…ohhhhhmmmmm……
