Yes Liz, that's correct. Anybody can have their horses quar5antined on their premises, provided the premises meet the USDA requirements.
We are a private quarantine- USDA Florida- and always quarantien and ship our horses from here, flying with them. The advantage is that they have their stall and a large run-out, therefore do not have to stand in a stall for all that time. that makes a tremendous difference, mentally and physically.
Thgese facilities you speak of in Texas are excellent according to various
reports I have. But so are some in Miami- for the 30 day quarantine-. Prices differ from place to place. When some pay $ 20,00 for a bale of hay versa $ 8.00
it does make a difference. Also on other things.
the higest rates are those for those hours before shipping. The can be anywhere between $ 125.- to $ 270.00 per horse for a 24hour time as we have experienced..
Of course then one needs to consider the transport from seller to quarantine,airport,etc. and that again can differ substantially.
It is wise to inspect the quarantines, if possible or get a report from those who used them.
