Saturday morning I finally received an email telling me that they would be dropping him off and to please call. When I called to confirm, they said he was traveling really well and was a great little guy. I was very relieved to hear that, because when I first got him he would paw a lot and immediately start sweating regardless of the temperature.
Good to be free
Once the trucked rolled in and they started setting up the ramp I could see him. He was very curious (shocking I know), but waited patiently and walked off the ramp like he had been doing it his whole life. He was delighted with his stall/run/paddocks (I have everything open for him) and grabbed a couple bites of hay, rolled, and drank some water.
All by myself
The barn came with the automatic waterers and I wasn't sure if he had ever seen one. He immediately started drinking out of it and as soon as it turned on he spooked. He did the same thing the second time too. Hopefully, he will figure it out because it is heated and that will be really nice for the winter.
Why yes I did sit in his stall and drink chai while he ate breakfast
The last piece of the getting Stinker settled is a buddy horse. Hopefully in the next week or so I can find something that will work well for us and then I think he will be quite happy with life. Overall, I was very happy with my decision to use Brook Ledge. It was pricy, but he traveled really well and they were very prompt and professional. Hopefully I won't need to use them again (really really really don't want to move again), but if I do have the need I would happily use them again.
