The 18 hours of Jinke, the alpacas and me...

We were going to Paris in England???

Some recommandations for transporting / exporting animals from England to the Netherlands.

  1. Don't go for a ride all over England on the last weekend of the summer holiday (black Friday). The traffic jam is hell...

  2. Never use Norfolkline for the transport of your animals. "We go for the wellfare of the animals". But they let them wait for 6 HOURS!!! All becaus of a little rain and wind... I had to beg to get to the mainland.

  3. Don't use the port Dover - Calais or Dover - Dunkurque. Best boat to catch for the Netherlands is Harwich - Hoek van Holland. It is much more expensive, but much better for the animals. No waiting. Much larger ship - no worries for the animals - very stabel. You and the animals will get much more time for resting / sleep.

  4. Don't put to much animals in a trailer. A good advice / protocol should be half the animals you can normally transport would be the max for such a long trip.

  5. Take some hay and water with you and there must be enough straw on the floor.

  6. There should be enough ventilation for the animals...

  7. Stop every 2 to 3 hours. It is better for the animals. The stop wouldn't take longer than 10 minutes. The animals can standup when you are standing still.
