This afternoon I was notified that the mare and her 3 1/2 month old filly that I sold to a man in TX had arrived safely and on time. I had been very concerned about shipping such a young foal that far. Minnesota to El Paso TX is a long haul for such a little baby! Sara was very helpful in getting them loaded quietly and carefully. She made sure that they had fresh water and hay in the trailer and assured me that she always makes frequent stops en route to check on them and give them a chance to rest. Not only was her care excellent, her rates were one third as much as some of the other quotes that I received. Not only was it a great choice for my horses but also a very cost effective way to get them to their new home in Texas. I have at least five more horses that I would like to get sold before winter hits Minnesota again! If any of them need to be shipped somewhere, I will definitely book them on UShip and hope that Sara is again available to put a bid in for our next trip. Thank You!
