    Well, I am loading up the trailer and getting ready to headout to a 2 day show this weekend. I have one doe and her 2, 2 month old kids that are not showing this year. All the other girls are going...should I leave her and her kids home? Or, load em and keep them with the rest of the herd? It is a 2 hour trailer ride each way. Which do you all think would cause her and her kids less stress.

    Thanks,

    Paula

    If the kids will have to ride with the adults, I would leave them home...but then I would leave them home anyway :) Vicki

    Yes, I would leave them home as well. But, I'm assuming that you have someone to feed and water her for you. If not, then I would take her. But if you do, then leave her home. You don't need extra bodies to worry with at a show and extra pens, etc. Plus she and the kids will be less stressed.

    Good luck at your show.
