Question:
8/11/2011
Hello, we will be headed your way on 10/2. Would this work for you? Please be sure to check out our profile page for pics and our A++++ feedback. We have extensive experience with all types of cattle, and would be happy to provide custom care for your special show stock. The trailer we would use is 20x8 and has one full to the floor divider providing 2 boxes for 3 cows each, or it can remain open and all six cows together. This is the same trailer that we have routinely shipped 6 large organic dairy jerseys (with full horns)and they fit comfortably and safely. Please let us know if the time frame works for you and please don't hesitate to ask any questions that you may have. Thank You for your consideration, Michelle w/ Valentine Report a Violation
Response: question, it's a 12 hour trip. If I had a trailer that is 32 feet long and 8 feet wide and each pair of cows thus would have an 8x10 compartment with hay water and shavings, can they ride straight through with only stoping for water and gas?8/17/2011Report a Violation
Response: Hello, how “we” do things is while it’s a 12hr drive of just straight driving, not including the stops, for us it would be more like 14hrs, because a)we do not speed, b)we feel that any animal requires rest time more than what a gas stop allows.Animals expend a lot of energy just keeping their balance in moving vehicle, every turn, bump, no matter how smooth causes a shift in your weight that requires you to have to shift a bit. (Try standing in the bed of a moving truck or trailer & see how much work it is.) I feel that the animals, esp if they are not accustomed to being hauled, need break time to do even simple things like urinate or drink, so we normally stop every few hrs for a short break for them to recover.There are exceptions but we tend to play it based on how well the animals are doing. 8/17/2011Report a Violation
Response: What I mean is should I stop somewhere over night and just make it a six hour day? When you stop during the move how long do you stop and how many times?8/17/2011Report a Violation
Response: What we normally do is unless the animals are very scared (if they are I would just get there)we stop every 2-4 hrs for 20mins or so. What we are trying to do is just give them a chance to catch their breath per say. So no unless you need to sleep, we go on and just do it in one trip, but we also have 2 drivers. 8/17/2011Report a Violation
Response: I see, thank you very much for all your help, I'll think it over and let you know8/17/2011Report a Violation
Response: Thank You!8/18/2011Report a Violation
Response: If I don't use you to move my cows on Oct 2 would you want to move my personal belongings? They are in new boxes and plastic tubs, no furniture8/19/2011Report a Violation
Question:
8/11/2011
Sorry just re-read you had 5 cows weighting 6k lbs not six! We hope we can be of service to you.Report a Violation
Response: I am thinking of having the guy who can move my cows on Aug 26th take the younger ones and leave the two older ones behind and have you move them reason being I'm afraid of leaving the older ones on a trailer for 12 hours straight what are your thoughts?8/17/2011Report a Violation
Response: The stall that you listed is more than enough room, but I will say that sometime too much room is dangerous, you don’t want so much space as to allow them to have a “running start” & have them thrash against the trailer in an attempt to escape, so normally w cows the less room the better. And we could just ship the two older cows in the one box if that works for you. What ever makes it easier for you, if you have a quote for shipping the young ones we will try to see what we can do on a price for you, and also if we shipped all of them.Hope this helps! 8/17/2011Report a Violation
Response: My cows are not normal cows. They are quiet and calm, they are pets. They are not in fear and thrashing. For now if you can give me a price on moving my belongings to a storage unit.8/19/2011Report a Violation

Question:
8/22/2011
I will be transporting my regular load (12+) rescued Great Pyrenees from Houston to Portland/Seattle early Seeptember but will be back home to NE Texas around the 16th or 17th roughly. I would need a couple days rest and could then haul the cattle as well as the belongings you mentioned. The nose compartment of my trailer is 7" x 7' x 28". You can check out my profile. Dkranch54Report a Violation
Response: That's a possibility. I want to make sure: #1 it's not hot and has cooled down before we go #2 we can overnight half way How many compartments does your trailer have? I have a 2,000 lb steer that needs to be by himself.8/22/2011Report a Violation
Response: I havde 1 divider gate, but can easily construct a tempory wall to make a third compartment...not real fancy but it works.8/22/2011Report a Violation
Response: That would be ok. What are the dimensions each section would have? How long and how wide is your trailer? I have six cows. One 2,000 lb steer would have to be alone. Two bulls can ride together, and two heiffers and one small baby bull could possibly ride together if there is enough room. We would stop half way and over night them. I want to wait until it's not so hot. I like the fact you can move my stuff too and possibly my horses later when I am ready to move. I like your attitude and I like your trailer.8/23/2011Report a Violation
Response: In the comments I made when submitting my bid, I forgot to add that the transport includes the cattle and everything you want to send that we can get in the nose w ich is 7' x 7' x 28". Doug8/26/2011Report a Violation

Question:
8/23/2011
hi, we have an opening for the last week in sep. we have a 40' trailer and 3 compartments in it each compartment is 12x8 and we have a 4 horse slant trailer for your horses. and we can also used this trailer to take your things to storage first then load your horses and go. please let me know if this works for you thank you Report a Violation
Response: First move would be the cows. And having them in 3 compartments is perfect. I wish to overnight halfway since I have older cows. I'm coming along with rental car and am due in Houston Sept. 30, so hope to do this early last week of Sept. please bid thanks8/27/2011Report a Violation
Response: hi, are you ready now? thank you9/24/2011Report a Violation
Response: I have already hauled my cows but need to haul my 3 horses and my household goods but not for a while9/27/2011Report a Violation
Response: Okay let me know when you are ready thank you9/27/2011Report a Violation
Question:
8/30/2011
Staying overnight is not a problem at all. DougReport a Violation
Response: give me again, the width of your trailer so I know how much room each of the three compartments would be? like 10x8? Also, can I ride with you and rent a car to come back home or would I need to rent a car both ways?8/30/2011Report a Violation
Response: You are welcome to ride with me. I will have 2 or 3 dogs but there is room. My pickup has a full back seat that I let down to make a pallet for the dogs, so unless you are allergic to dogs they won't be much bother. Do you know where the halfway point is (approximately)?8/30/2011Report a Violation
Response: I have four dogs so no problem, I can ride with you then rent a car going home. Still need to know how big each of the 3 compartments will be width and length8/30/2011Not in Violation
Response: I only have 1 divider gate. It splits the trailer. The front "half" is about 12.5' x7' and the back half is about 11.5' x 7'. If you seperate the steer then I can make a tempoary wall to create the third section any size you want...though I can't do much about the width. It is still going to be 7'.8/30/2011Report a Violation
Question:
8/30/2011
The trailer floor is 24' x 7' and the nose is 7' x 7' x 28"high. We can put up a temporary wall to make a compartment for the steer and the remaing area can be one big area with all the rest of the cattle together or we can split them into 2 groups.Report a Violation
Question:
8/30/2011
Is the steer real gentle? Halter broke? DougReport a Violation
Response: None of my cows are haulter broke but you can pet them and they follow me into the trailer with a bucket of grain....I just had to write a check to buy all my winter hay in KY before there was none to get. that means the earliest I could haul them is the 28th and 29th and I'm due in Houston the 30th...are you available to haul 6 hours on the 28th and 6 hours the morning of the 29th. we stop in Arkansas and stay overnight to let the cows rest. 9/10/2011Report a Violation
Response: It sounds like your cattle will be a pleasure to work with. The 28th & 29th is actually better. It gives me more breathing room so to speak....a chance to maybe rest a bit after the gruelling marathon trip from Houston to Portland/Seattle transporting 20 rescued great Pyrenees. People there stand in line to adopt them! Doug9/10/2011Report a Violation
Question:
9/8/2011
Hello. Please tell me how many boxes/tubs you have to move. I'm going to be in the Dallas area around the 25th of this month and could deliver to KY. Thank you.Report a Violation
Response: I have a section 7 foot by 8 foot stacked 5 feet tall and I have another section 6 foot by 3 foot stacked 5 feet high and another section, third section 8x5 stacked 6 feet high. I have 8 bookcases about 4.5 feet high I have lots of 10 foot kennel panels and 10 wrought iron panels. Now, this does not have to go all at once I'm just giving you an idea of what I have. I'm wanting to move my cows on Sept 25th, 6 cows, need 3 compartments but I have someone who can do this if you can't. Later 3 horses. 9/9/2011Report a Violation
Response: I have a 22' gooseneck horse trailer, dressing room, oversize 2 horse slant. It's 7' tall and wide. I may have a horse coming on this next trip to Louisville so I would be limited on space(dressing room) for items. I can, however, make several trips after this to get the rest of your things, including your animals. Are you moving things a little at a time? If so, I'll be free by the 2nd week of October to move everything. Just let me know your thoughts. Thank you.9/9/2011Report a Violation
Response: I am very flexible. can move a little at a time. Say if you have room in your horse trailer on way to Louisville my storage unit will be in bowling green which is on your way. IN other words whenever you are going that way anyhow does your trip originate from here in Texas whereby some of my boxes would be hitching a ride with you on a trip you are already taking?9/9/2011Report a Violation
Response: Tell me how many & approximate sizes so I'll know how much space is needed. How would I get them into the storage area? I'd charge you fairly. Thank you.9/9/2011Report a Violation
Response: what I will do is have them at a boat storage and you would take however many would fit into your trailer. I'm concerned however that Sept 25th may be the weekend I'm moving my cows to KY and may not be here, I'll know more as we get close to that date. I could hire someone to meet you at the storage unit to unload, just thinking thru how we would do this9/9/2011Report a Violation
Response: Ok. We'll just have to work on it. Thank you.9/9/2011Report a Violation
Response: actually if you are going the same weekend I am I will be arriving before you are and I would be there to help you unload. I just would not be there to load. However, the boat storage place where my things are is in Valley View about 7 miles from I35 and in the country, so if you had to let your horse out to load the stuff it's an excellent place to let him out and walk him for a break and tie to the trailer while you are loading. Then what I'll do is get a storage unit in Bowling Green near I65 so it's convenient for you. That may work9/9/2011Report a Violation
Response: Is Valley View close to Gunter?9/9/2011Report a Violation
Response: my cows are in Gunter, not my stuff. Gunter is about 20 miles from Valley View. My understanding is you are not taking my cows because you have a horse trailer and not a stock trailer, plus they should not ride with a horse9/10/2011Report a Violation
Response: Since the horse cancelled I have an empty trailer. It's an oversize 2 horse slant so if a horse was in it there wouldn't have been enough room for the horse and cows. I'd be happy to take them and your belongings to KY. Just let me know. Your belongings would go in the dressing room. Thank you.9/10/2011Report a Violation
Response: I would need a stock trailer at least 7 foot wide and 24 feet long and 3 compartments to haul the cows9/10/2011Report a Violation
Response: Ok thanks. Mine isn't that size or make. Your belongings? Also with no horse will your panels fit?9/10/2011Report a Violation

Hi, I was checking to see if you are still needing this done as we have a very large trailer with 4 large boxstalls and a stud stall. if you would like you can look at pics of my trailer and my feedback please let me know if we can help. ThanksReport a Violation
Response: Thank you for writing. Are you available on the 28th? Yes I'm still wanting this done. 740 miles we drive 6 hours and stay overnight then do the last 6 hours the next morning. 6 cows need at least 3 compartments.9/11/2011Report a Violation
Response: Hi, I have 4 compartments so that would not be a problem. as far as the 28th i dont see no problem there either. please let me know if you have a price in mind that you would like to stay at so i can see if we can work together. Thanks For repling back. Thanks Richie9/11/2011Report a Violation
Response: The 28th would be great. My best quote is 1500, I have a problem, I'm paying 130 bucks for a roll of hay every week I don't leave here while trying to save up the money to move them. I'm due in Houston the 30th for seminar so need to move them before then. We will be staying over night half way so go 6 hours the first day then next morning go 6 hours and we are done. Thanks for trying to help me, I'm in real need of help. Possibility of other loads to later to move my household and my 3 horses9/12/2011Report a Violation
Response: Hi, Can they go before the 28th? If so we could do them before the 28th if you would like. Please let me know what works best for you. as far as cost it would be $1500. as fuel and i would not normaly stop over night for that short of a distance but would do it for you. Please let me know what you are thinking. Thanks Richie9/12/2011Report a Violation
Response: I wish I could move them before the 28th. I just had to write a check to the guy who is going to care for them for me in KY for hay for the winter. So now I'm saving up for the hauler and I won't have the money before that time. Wish I did. I need to stop overnight because I have older cows and 12 hours is too much in fact the trip is over 12 hours and I was told it's illegal to haul livestock for more than 11 hours at a time.9/12/2011Report a Violation
Response: Hi, I understand and as far as not shipping more than 11 hours i have never heard of anything of such. I haul horses from FL to WA and have never heard of such a thing. Maybe with one driver i could see but we have 2 at all times, Please let me know when you are ready to do this so i can place a bid. Also we will do it when and however you want to do it. When i haul my clients are my boss and i do as they ask. Thanks Richie9/12/2011Report a Violation
Response: Thank you, as stated I need to do this Sept. 28 9/12/2011Report a Violation
Response: Ok, I will make sure i have all my ducks in a row so i know for sure i can make this happen i dont like leaving no one hanging, Hope you understand. As long as i get every thing worked out i will do it for you if this sounds like it would work for you let me know and i will place a bid. Thanks Richie9/12/2011Report a Violation
Response: I want to do this move during the day because I have a cow who is 16+ years old that's why we stay overnight half way, and in case I need a vet I want to travel during the day. Do you think she will be ok? There's plenty of room in the trailer where she could lie down, right? I will know in another week if Sept 28 is firm. It's just a matter of saving up for your fee and hopefully I don't have any unexpected expenses in the meantime.9/12/2011Report a Violation
Response: Hi, And yes she should be ok and yes she can lay down as there is plenty of room for her. Just keep in touch. Thanks Richie9/13/2011Report a Violation
Response: That is comforting to know she will be ok. The stable we will stay overnight is Saddle Creek Farm 1081 Saddle Creek Road Hazen, AR right off the interstate. He has round pens to put the cows in, should be easy to load I'm trying to save up for this trip, if I don't make it by the 28th can you do it the following week, the 5th or 6th? Stay in touch because they only let me communicate with you when there is a question to answer...I want to hire you, you have the perfect trailer and an understanding for handling animals, mine are specialty cows that are older and need special care many thanks9/13/2011Report a Violation
Response: I know this is a lot of work to do this i will ask another Question so there is a couple on here ok. Thanks Richie9/13/2011Report a Violation

Response: Hi, We can do it around the 28th. But now im booked till then. And Yes my tires are new and i also carry 2 spares. as far as insurance i carry mortality as you would have to carry insurance on them as we cant put it on them because we dont own them.

Are you still plainng the transport this week? I have an axle to repair on my trailer. It is not an ordinary axle that I can buy just anywhere, so do not know when my trailer will be ready. It happened today. DougReport a Violation
Question:
9/26/2011
Have you made a decision on when you want to move your cows? I might be able to help you and save you some money. Is the place in Hazen charging you to board your cows there over night? I have 10 acres outside of Searcy AR that is on the way and we could stop there for the night. The fences are good I kept my horses there until a few months ago.Report a Violation
Response: Searcy AR is not on the way. Hazen is right on I40 I have already hauled my cows but need to haul my 3 horses and household goods9/27/2011Report a Violation
Response: There isn't 40 miles difference in the routes you get off 40 in little rock onto 67 then back on 40 in memphis but it doesnt matter to me which way you go i was just trying to save you some money if the guy in hazen was charging you for boarding them.9/27/2011Report a Violation
Question:
9/27/2011
Hi there- are you going to list a separate shipment for your 3 horses you have yet to move?Report a Violation
Response: Moving my three horses is the last thing to move....I have listed my household items already because it does not matter when I move those, but the horses have to move when I do and I don't know when I'm moving could be 3 months from now or could be 7 months from now because I have to buy a farm first. Also, I refuse to coggins test my horses and will enter the state on the back roads same way I did with my cows because they were tested recently and I don't want to pay to have it done again so my hauler must be willing to go along with that and I already have a guy who will but still open to other bids9/27/2011Report a Violation
Response: It is ILLEGAL to transport horses across state lines without a current negative coggins. We prefer not to break the law. We are licensed & insured and it is a huge risk to take and could cost us our entire business. I'm sure an illegal transporter without the proper licensing & insurance will be willing to help you out. Safe travels!9/27/2011Report a Violation
Response: Oh, I did not realize it was illegal, gosh I would never have you or anybody compromise your business.9/27/2011Report a Violation
Response: Yes, it is against the law to transport horses across state lines without a current negative coggins. Most states require the coggins to be done within 12 months of the transport date; however, there are a few that require it done within 6 months of the transport date. If a transporter is caught without the proper paperwork, our licensing could be suspended. Not to be rude, but any legitimate transport should know the laws & regulations of transporting interstate. The horses will need a Health Certificate to cross state lines also. After reading your original statement, it sounds as if the horses had a coggins done within the past couple months?? If so, I do apologize for harping! We will be in TX early next week, which is obviously too soon to move the horses. I appreciate your time and wish you luck with your move!9/27/2011Report a Violation
Response: thank you I understand if you are leaving TX with an empty trailer there's always my household goods and fence panels that are destined for Kentucky and can be moved anytime9/27/2011Report a Violation
Response: I will talk it over with the driver and will consider placing a bid. I will let you know whether the driver is interested under your other listing. 9/28/2011Report a Violation
