    Mornin’, All : D

    Lizzie,
    I have only been four months without my NEW boy and he’s only four hours away by car. I can ever so slightly relate to your excitement! MY boy comes home the 17th of May. I am delirious with anticipation, hopes, dreams, visions, all of that happy stuff. Can’t wait to get going! I hope you are able to be together again really soon, in good order, and ready to add to our pending “Summer Fun” thread : ) Just waiting for everybody to land, dig out, get sound, saddle up and then..

    Let’s RIDE!! and report back here : )

    Sure there's right and wrong but mostly there's just a whole lotta different.

    I’m using Equine Express and so far have been super impressed with

    Lizzie—thanks, especially, for this info! We are hoping to make a move next summer from Wyoming to VA or NC (right, Mapale?!) & will have at least 2 horses to move, so any info I can gather now on shipping companies is most appreciated. What fun for your mare to be at the Air Force Academy! It is beautiful there-And what fun that you will have her for the summer 🙂
    I will be praying that her trip west is completely uneventful-for you & her!

    Hooray for Squishy & pheets to be together soon! 😉

    Pheets, The only summer-ey song I can think of is this: (Eddie Murphy circa 1980’s sometime….) “Lemonade, that cool refreshing drink…” probably doesn’t translate very well without the audio – Anyhoo, thats all I’ve got.

    Songs – Under the Boardwalk, however inappropriate, springs to mind as a summer song.

    Partial to deep, lazy blues in the steamy evenings. On the deck. With the right beverage, maybe a cigar with friends now and then : )

    Wyo, I still have a bit of anxiety over their abilities
    (Squishy is innocently herd ignorant at this time) or willingness to accept each other but I think the time between my other boy leaving and now has been useful in tempering Pheety’s heart. He has been eating consistently for a couple weeks now, always encouraging : ) He might be more open now than a few months ago.

    I deviate from shipping relevance.

    My bad everyone, I started the deviation from the OP’s question–got confused as to which post I was on! Doh!

    Good news, Lizzie has arrived in Colorado and is acting like she’s lived here her whole life! I ended up giving her just Ulcergard and crossing my fingers, and she’s fortunately taken the entire trip in stride. Drivers said she drank plenty of water the entire time and she’s been 100% normal here so far (we’re on day 2 of life in Colorado). Thank you everyone for your tips and support!! Also, I can’t recommend Equine Express highly enough, they were absolutely fantastic.

    So thoughtful to post the outcome – lizziescase – and I’m so glad it went well! Enjoy your summer with her – wishing you lots of great riding days – and wishing her much success with the Academy team in the Springs. Hope you are all mended now!
