Falcon has arrived!

He is safe and sound in CA despite a most crazy long trip, and a lying and non communicative company. The company is TDS. BEWARE!

If I Could Fly

If I could fly on Falcon wing
What would I see
What would I sing
Where would I be?

If I could fly
Spirit free
Spiraling to see
Where would I be?

If I could fly
looking down from above
I'dlike to see
You and me
Sitting down
under that oak tree
Passing time
Talking and singing
of things sublime

Arrangements made....

The Equine Virus delayed the shipment
Betz to pick up new shipping certificate
Pick-up on Sunday or Monday....

Preparations continue

Email from Bets saying that Christie would be available for the Vet on Friday.
Vet to arrive around 9 to pull the coggins on Falcon
Addresses for shipping and billing clarified with the White Oak Veterinary Clinic in Flint Hill VA

Clarified with shipper that it is NOT this Saturday that I need Falcon picked is in MAY!
Re-faxed contract to them for shipping and wrote all over it the date in May.

Will be glad when I can see Falcon again and get some pictures and start writing about something more exciting then shipping papers! :)

Beginnings and a little bit of fear

1. Boarding facility finalized-Lakeside Equestrian on Auburn Folsom Road. I now have access to the tack room, so at some point I will take my saddle over.
The place is immaculate and seemed quiet when I was there around 10 in the a.m. The horses were still sleepy and relaxed. two boarders were there brushing out their horses and a sleepy cat meowed and brushed up against my was a good feeling to be around horses again

2. TDS equine transportation-deposit and contract sent in.

Still left to do:

3. Arrange for Falcon to have his coggins and Vet card completed so he can be shipped. I will have to wait until I get a date for the transport because the Vet card has to be during a 30 day window of the shipping. But it looks like Falcon will be shipped out around the 21rst of MAY.

4. When I get to VA in May, I need to get a tack box ready to ship with him and 3 bales of hay for the journey.

Betsy will bring him over to her place at shipping time since it is easier for a big rig to get into her place rather then Christies steep driveway on busy 340.

I have been reading the posts in this blog. Didnt even remember that I had written so much and it brought back some excitement, but also fear that Falcon is gonna dump me off on the GIGANTIC rocks that live in this area! : )

He will settle in and then I will maybe get a trainer to work with him for a few weeks since he hasnt been ridden in 2 years...
