Our service provider was Thumper34753 (S & E Transport) and the job they did was amazing. They picked up the horse in Wichita Kansas and headed to Lewistown Montana but on the road they got hit by a major winter storm. It was one that shut down most of Wyoming and a part of Montana for three days. These gals were just super. They called several times each day and keep me posted about how Sky (the horse) was doing. They were stuck in Sheridan for three days because no one was allowed to travel and during that time the food we sent ran out but they trecked through all the mess in Sheridan and got hay and bedding for her. They even had to wade through hip deep drifts just to get to the stall (a really nice one they found there so she didn't have to stay in the trailer)and they did it multiple times each day to check on her - and then called to let me know how she was doing. I was so impressed not just with the care they gave her but also with their wonderful attitudes. In a situation that could have been really nasty they were always cheerful and positive. They were so good natured about the everything that I never even worried. They were able to laugh about it and that just relieved any tension or care I might have had. The really amazing thing was that even though this delay was costing them money they never complained or even said they would have to raise the price of my haul. I actually felt bad about just paying what they had bid but when I asked if I needed to pay more they said "Absolutely Not - things like this just happen." In my book, that was truely professional. These gals went above and beyond with this haul and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting not just a professional job but a professional job done by compasionate and caring people. I would use them again in a heart beat - but I did joke with them that I would not plan any moves around Montana or Wyoming unless it was in July or August
