Father's Day was soon approaching, and I was eager to have my husband's surprise from our boys (a gorgeous black Percheron gelding) transported to our horse ranch. After securing a shipper elsewhere, we soon discovered that their expected ship date was more like a generalization for "sometime in the next two months!" After they postponed 3 times, I listed on UShip, and got a bid that same morning from a shipper who was just down the highway from our new horse! Fred gave me a fantastic price, picked up the horse an hour later, and gave him great care en route. You should have seen my husband's face that evening when Guinness walked out of Fred's trailer! Thanks to Fred and UShip for saving our Father's Day!
