I purchased my 1st horse and wouldn't you know, she's in foal! Living in Arizona I needed her shipped from Texas and had complete anxiety about who would be shipping her to me. I tried to get a bid from a specific company, during the same time,while recieving nothing from the first company, I kept recieving negotiating bids from the company I ended up using. After accepting the bid from Kabbaraz Transportation, I called Ed (the owner) and talked with him about my concerns for my new horse- by the end of the conversation I new I had made the right choice! Not only did he make me feel comfortable, he took away my nervousness and any fears I had. After making the initial pick up, he took her back to his ranch in Texas for the night, not wanting to put stress on her while he made some other local pick ups/drop offs. He even had his on-site vet look at my mares eye for me because I had a concern about it! He made sure she was eating and drinking enough throughout her journey, and when she was finally dropped off to me, late in the evening, 'cause I didn'nt/couldn't wait until the next morning, she was just a doll! She wasn't under any stress or strain, she unloaded wonderfully, and went into her stall, took a drink of water and started to eat! It was exactly how I pictured it to be. What a smooth transition! Ed went out of his way for my mare and i truly appreciate it. I can't imagine anyone else handling my first horse shippment for me, I will certainly use his company again for anymore out of state purchases that I make! It's great to have Ruby "home", safe and sound and I have UShip and Kabbaraz Transportation to thank!!
