I had to have my 3 horses moved from Florida to Michigan before it got too cold. Moma is in foal since June, and has a 7 month old colt. I had another mare there also, so I started looking around in August. I had several offers some way above my budget and some within. But, I was looking for someone who would do just that extra special because of my little guy's first ride in a trailer. I wanted it to be a good experience for him, but having to travel all the way from Florida in a 24 hour period, I didn't know how he would be in the trailer. When Joey & Michelle bid on the trip I told them that I was worried about the babies first trip so they installed their camera in the trailer so they could watch him the whole trip. It worked out really well, he did great in the trailer and Joey could tell me how he rode and what he was doing through the whole trip. They were the best, and when they got to the farm, they all looked like they just stepped on the trailer. They were all happy and healthy looking. Joey made sure they had plenty of hay to eat and stopped often to be sure they drank enough water. I can not say enough about these people. They are great horse lovers and will make sure your babies get to thier homes is the best shape. Thank you for my babies trip home. They also thank you too Joey Michelle, except they would like you to send up some more warm sunshine from Florida till they get set for the cold weather here in Michigan.
