|Comment||I really appreciate your response, Lisa. You answered my question, and you suggested something I had not thought about -- checking the legality of that type of transportation. Finally, you also provided your personal opinion--and really that's the heart of it with a question like this, isn't it? "What would you do if it was YOUR horse?" You totally cleared up my indecision. If I have to bite the financial bullet I will; their safety and peace of mind is most important. I had not heard of rescue railroad, and I will check into that, so thanks doubly for that info. Best to you!|
