Moving out of State - I need advise to Transport 3 Does and 2 Dogs

Hello,We just moved from Western North Carolina (WNC) to Southern Maine around a month ago. I am planning on flying back to WNC in the next few days to pick up some of our Nigerian Dwarf goats (3 does) and our 2 dogs (Great Pyrenees). Problem is that we don't have proper vehicles for this task as all we have is a Toyota Red Van (kind of untouchable for this job as it is the family vehicle) and a Hyundai Tucson (which I've used in the past for transporting the animals of our small farm in…See More

They have been on Timothy Grass mostly, salt and some minerals ocassionally..and of course, water renewal on a daily basis. Although, I have to say that when available(every now and then) we switch to Orchard Grass.Every other day they go on the back of our barn into a 4-acre field for browsing purposes. We DO need to sell…See More
