We went to Longmont, Colorado last weekend for an Appaloosa show. Drove out on Friday.
Drove back on Saturday. That was a lot of driving! Over 900 miles, round trip.
We had to do it because so far as I can tell, there are only two Appaloosa Working Cow Horses in the entire state of New Mexico and both live at my house.
LT, of course, and the international addition, Mitch, who just arrived from Canada last month and belongs to Ardith Allcorn
The horses travelled well. I did not tie them so I could feed them on the floor of the trailer. The hay on the floor is also so no one (read LT) gets tangled in a hay net.
We have a stock trailer with good air flow–which means the feed blows around and could get in their eyes, so they got to wear fly masks to protect them from flying hay.
