I had been trying to get my mare out of Kentucky since January. After two failed hauling attempts with different companies, it looked like I was going to have luck with a third. They disappeared the day before the mare was to be shipped, Mar 31, leaving me again with a horse stuck in another state. On the same day, I placed an ad on uShip for an emergency haul of a healthy broodmare. After sorting through responses, I found Tom and Crystals from Rockin' K Ranch. They not only offered an amazing price and they could move the mare very soon (April 2nd), but their experience in horse health care made me feel at ease. I booked the shipment and was in contact with Crystal that night. The next day, we discovered that not only were we connected by a circle of friends, but that they had hauled horses from this very same farm before successfully. A small world! On April 2nd, Tom called me within half an hour of picking up my mare, and updated me every couple of hours at the exact points on the route I had requested. He took constant care of my mare during the entire trip, and when she was dropped off she acted more like she had been grazing all day rather than riding in a trailer. The transfer from trailer to pasture was very easy, and the appropriate papers were exchanged. This is easily one of the best hauling experiences I've ever had! Wonderful, interesting people, who took care of my horse as if she were their own. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Truly a joy to work with!
