I bought this mare thinking she had a current coggins and shipment papers. John had bid on her thinking she was ready to go on Oct 1, but she could not be ready until Oct 2. He was already in the area, and adjusted his schedule so he could wait to pick her up. He loaded her and brought her and several items of tack that her seller sent, along with registration papers, etc. He kept in touch along the way to let me know of any necessary schedule changes to allow for inspection station stops, rest stops for the mare, etc. John was aware that as a teacher, I had to be at school at 8 am, so he made sure to deliver her before then so as not to disrupt my work schedule. He is very accomodating, thoughtful and careful with his live passengers. It is obvious that he has experience with, and is at ease with horses-- even very LARGE ones. Lou Lou is at least 17 hands, and probably weighs close to 1,800 lbs. John even unloaded her and walked her into her stall for me. I can't say enough good things about his polite manner and professionalism. I urge anyone who needs to ship a horse in the Southeastern United States to request a bid from calf_roper_John. Marcia
