I bought this 2 year old colt through the internet and really didn't know what "training" he had received. It turns out he had not been hauled since he was a baby and he just didn't want to step up into the trailer. The gal I bought him from said,"Ben was just marvelous with the colt and she felt much better knowing that he was in good hands." The unique part of this story is that I am serving in Iraq and had to do most of this 3rd party. I called Ben after I accepted the bid and left him a message of how he could call me in Iraq and believe it or not just 10 minutes later he called me and it was the middle of the night there in the states. I was so shocked that Ben called me so quickly. We had a very nice chat and I felt very at ease with him. I felt very sorry for them because due to circumstances at home - I couldn't give them a definate answer as to where he was being delivered. It was between two different towns about 20 miles apart. While they were on the way down from New Jersey my daughter was trying to put some fences up on our new property but wasn't able to get it done so it wound up we had the colt delivered to our other leased property. But it was back and forth for 3 days trying to give them the definate answer and they were so very patient. Pat never lost patience with me just kept saying, "you have enough to worry about in Iraq let us worry about this colt getting there." He arrived in great shape and not nervous. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you again for the good service Suzi & Amy
