Our Last Horse Flight for 2012

 We have just completed our last shipment for the year, with a very, very special group of horses.  Thanks to Friederike Gitzel of Germany for sharing her precious mini mare, Rachel.  Thanks to Linn Andersen for allowing us the joy of working with her Quarter horse filly, Mini.

And last but definitely not least, thanks to HRH Prince Saud Al Sud for allowing us the extraordinary privilege of shipping the amazing Arabian stallion, PCF Vision.  What a beautiful animal he is, with so much heart and personality.  It was a joy for us to have the opportunity to provide the quarantine and shipping for him and we know he will do very well in his upcoming shows in the EU.

Thanks also to our groom, Wes Weber.  Wes is a student of Dr. Clay Cavinder at Texas A & M University.  When we visited the class this fall, Wes expressed a desire to fly for us ... and we were happy to be able to make that happen for him this week.  Wes, enjoy your visit to Amsterdam.

We have several groups of horses in quarantine right now for January, 2013 flights ... and we are gathering horses from all over the USA for new quarantine groups that will be starting in early January.  Let us know if you have any horses ready to ship and we will be happy to get things underway for you.

Horses to Saudi Arabia

Is it just me or does time seem to fly by these days?  We have been so busy since we got back from Amsterdam that I have not had a minute to sit down and catch up with everyone about our last shipment.

Many, many thanks to Sheikh Khalid Al Khalifa, Mr. Haytham Al Barrack,  Mr. Salem Al Dossary and Mr. Mohammed Al Amer for allowing us the privilege of caring for and shipping your horses to Dammam, Saudi Arabia.  I am happy to report that the trip went well for horses and humans alike.

Thanks also to our dear friend and veteran horse groom, Mr. Johannis van Dijk, for taking over the responsibility for the horses from Amsterdam to Dammam.  "Hans" has over 30 years of professional experience as an animal attendant, so we are always delighted when he can fly for us.

Terry and I accompanied the horses from Houston to Amsterdam.  It was great seeing old friends in Holland, even though our trip was cut short by the snow storm.  We decided to leave before the storm closed down airports.  Snow is beautiful to watch, but not so much fun for traveling.  We are happy to report that we are back home in sunny South Texas, getting ready for next week's flight.

We are very busy receiving horses at the moment, getting ready for January shipments to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Europe.  We are also working on a shipment to Johannesburg and .... our very first ever shipment to Brazil.  This is such an exciting time at EZ 2 Spot Ranch.  We are very excited about being able to now offer flights from Texas to Brazil.  Be sure to contact us for more information at

Back next week with more news!
