Space Available

We are gathering horses now for our next quarantine groups to go to Amsterdam and to Kuwait. At the moment, there is one available space remaining in each group. These spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you have a horse ready to go to either destination, please let us know and we will reserve the space for you.

Horses Arriving in Kuwait Today

What a beautiful group of Arabian horses are arriving in Kuwait today! Some are going to be in the upcoming show and we can't wait to hear the results. Thank you Mohammad, Abdul, Burhan and Ayman for allowing us the privilege of spending some time with your horses. Best of luck in the upcoming show and please be sure to send us show pictures. We'll post them here for all the world to see.

Thank You!

Thank you to Irina, Sarah and Monica for sharing your horses and donkeys with us. They arrived safe and sound in Amsterdam on Saturday. It was our pleasure caring for them and working with each of you. Sarah, please send baby pictures. I can't wait to see Abby's foal (or foals?)!

Thank you also to Mohammad, Osman and Saad for sharing your beautiful Arabian youngsters with us. It was such a pleasure working with the babies and delivering them to you in Saudi Arabia. We look forward to your next shipment to Dammam.

And thank you to our grooms, David Notman and Henry Quintanilla, for ensuring the safe transport of the animals in these two shipments. Terry has been down with the flu this week and was not able to fly. We are so grateful that we have such reliable and professional people who take care of the horses on flights that we cannot take ourselves.

Exciting New Year Is Underway!

We are off and running with an exciting new year! 2011 brings with it the promise of many new opportunities for us to take horses and donkeys to new destinations all over the world. We are especially excited about exporting equines to Viet Nam, China and New Zealand for the first time this year. There is also a possibility of some new routes opening up to Central and South America this year. We will keep you posted as things develop in that area.

Unfortunately, the new year may also bring increases in rates. We've heard rumors that fuel surcharges are going to increase on all the airlines - and fuel costs in the US are going up at the moment. We don't have the amount or the date of the increase yet, but please be aware that this may be on the horizon.

I am in Luxembourg now, having delivered horses here on Thursday night. Many thanks to Cedric, Anne, Jean and Laeticia, Natasha, Susanne and Sylvie. Our groom, Phil Peich, delivered horses for Coralie in Amsterdam on Friday morning and Terry is on his way home from Dammam, Saudi Arabia after delivering horses there for Saleh Al Hamad and Ahmed Najaf. Thank you all for sharing your horses with us. As always, it has been our pleasure to work with you and your equine friends.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or if we can help you in any way.
