I am in the process of buying a new house with horse property in Norco, CA and once I am settled in, plan to move my pregnant mare there with me. (She just recently had colic surgery so it will be 2-3 months till I move her)

She is 5 months along right now, and will be 7-8 months when I move her. I have a roomy 3 horse slant load and the move from where she is now will be about 2 hours. If I have food for her the whole trip and stop to offer her water once or twice, the trip should be ok?

My other question is about having a barn buddy for her at my new place. She has never lived without another horse around her whole life. When she is alone with no others around, she gets upset. I was thinking of buying a miniature horse to be her barn buddy, who could eventually be the foal's buddy when it comes time to wean mommy and baby. I would have the mini settled in for a while before I moved her to my house. Each of them would have seperate stalls right next to eachother. I was wondering everyone's thoughts on this, and if this all sounds like a good idea? Thanks!

minis make excellent companions....and cost very little extra to take care of!

sounds like a good plan the trip wont hurt her at all and unless its really hot you shouldnt need to stop for water if its only 2 hours
