"THEY" don't want it--those things are required BY LAW.  Texas is pretty 
serious about Coggins tests (saw a notice on a clinic wall down there last 
week that there were 400+ positive cases in Texas last year) and you have to 
have a negative one to even move a horse IN-state there and in some other 
southern states.  The transport company has to comply or face stiff fines if 
they get caught.  For the record--when we crossed over into Oklahoma on I-35 
last week, there was a mobile checkpoint pulling over ALL horse trailers and 
checking for Coggins tests and health certificates--one can't just "assume" 
that "no one will check..."
