Who knew the weather in Kuwait could be colder than it is in South Texas? Well, that was the surprise that Terry had today when he and three beautiful Arabian horses arrived in Kuwait City. Current temperature in Kuwait City is 45F/7C. It is warmer than that in Luxembourg at the moment. BRRR!!!!

Everything went very well on the journey and the horses are on the way to their new home stables. Thank you Khalid, Abdullah and Burhan for sharing your horses with us.

Terry will be back in sunny south Texas tomorrow and we will be flying horses to Dammam, Riyadh and Amsterdam next week. Our daughter,Kris, is going to fly with me to Amsterdam, while Terry and Henry will go to Saudia.

We are so blessed to have such a wonderful staff here at the ranch. We have no concerns when we deliver your horses to you anywhere in the world because we know that Megan, Fernando and Tanner will keep the home fires burning and do their usual great job of caring for the horses while we're away.

We are gathering horses now for a quarantine group that will start on January 30th. Let us know if we can be of help to you or if you have any questions.

For our European clients, remember that we have lowered our rates to Amsterdam. It is now $4800.00 per horse - including stallions! And this includes a visit from our farrier for a hoof trim AND a new halter and leadrope for travel day!

Amsterdam and Doha

Terry and I are back at the ranch now after a brief but very pleasant visit with our clients in Dammam. All the horses traveled well and it was so nice seeing several of their new owners at the airport.

Yesterday, our friend, David Notman, accompanied an Arabian mare and four miniature donkeys to Amsterdam. Thank you Carole, Peter and Sarah for sharing your animals with us. We look forward to hearing from you when they have arrived home safely. And thank you, David, for taking care of the animals on the flight and at the Animal Hotel. Enjoy your visit to Amsterdam!

The final trip for this week will be when our staff member, Tanner La Grone, delivers three beautiful Arabian mares to Doha, Qatar on Friday. Thank you, Abdullah and Mohammed for sharing these horses with us.

We are starting our next quarantine group for Saudi and the EU next week. We are pleased to announce that we have been able to lower our rates for full-size horses to Amsterdam. The new rate is $4800.00 (USD) for mares, geldings and stallions alike. In addition to providing quality care during the quarantine period, we also provide a free hoof trim, a free halter and a free leadrope for each horse. If you have a horse to ship to Amsterdam, we would love to have the opportunity to work with you.

On the way to Dammam

It is a beautiful, sunny morning in Luxembourg ... quite a treat after yesterday's rain and snow showers ...and all is well. Terry and I arrived here last night with nine beautiful Arabian horses. The horses are resting in their stalls at the moment ... and Terry and I are resting in the Ibis Hotel. We will fly out tonight for Dammam, arriving in the wee hours of the morning on Saturday,

Thank you, Dhafer, Osman, Mohammad, Abdul, Salem and Fahad for sharing your horses with us. We look forward to seeing you in Dammam tomorrow.
