That is the question.
We are exchanging emails right now.
She is a teacher and the times she can get away and the times I can close shop for a seven hour stretch are not aligning.
I'm not used to a dog breeder who doesn't have a more flexible job, since they need to be able to take off and be with their dogs at a moment's notice.
I'm not sure what's happening here yet. I hate to have to ship the pup being only three hours away.

I just spent the whole afternoon looking at You Tubes of the Clydesdale horses. Did you know that Budweiser owns eight different breeding farms? I learned a lot about them. What I would like to know is how do they decide which colts are going to be draft horses and which ones will be raised for breeding. That decision has to be made when they are just young colts. All their draft horses are geldings. And which fillies do they decide to use as breeding mares?

I hope you can work something out soon. You have to be excited about this.

Thanks!
No doubt is was because everyone was wishing me well.
But getting her from point A to point B is proving to be harder then I thought.

I've had dogs shipped to me before. And even back then it was quite pricey. I just wanted to avoid that this time around and was one of the main reasons I was researching closer breeders. I should have researched her job, lol. It's not like she's a hobby breeder with only a couple dogs.
