My girl Cheeze it will be heading to her new home tomorrow.I intend to send some of her feed with her as the hauler is willing to feed during the trip. She will have access t o hay and water either way. She has a long trip ahead of her. Any suggestions as to what I can do to make the trip easier on her? ( She recently had a CD&T booster specifically for this trip) She is only about 5 months old. Suggestions are appreciated. CVI is also completely in order.
She has a very considerable trip ahead of her. I have a lot of faith in the hauler. A friend has used them in the past and they took excellent care of her animals.

You might want to send some of the water she’s used to with the hauler as well. Sometimes animals get weird about new water.

I’ve not sent animals with a transporter, but we did move 9 goats from Mississippi to Ohio ourselves. We offered water every few hours and they had hay. Did well, didn’t have any issues.

Probiotics, grain, hay, and fresh water. You could give a shot as prevention for shipping fever, but I don’t find it necessary and have only had a couple buyers request it.

We sent many goats across the country. They always do pretty well! Make sure the buyer knows to check for worms about 2-4 weeks after arriving.
