My shipper was not the lowest bid (by $2 dollars) I received but was the most readily available to me for any and all questions we had. We were shipping a rescue cold from AC4H in Bernville, PA to Massachusetts. This colts history is unknown but so many people have come to his aid that he is truly one special little horse that belongs to the "people" who helped save him and Lorraine was one of them. Virtual strangers who did not know me, my banr owner who was taking in this colt or the colt himself, donated their funds in this poor economy to make the asking price to save this colt, then to qusnratine him for 30 days as he was really ill then to cover vet costs and gelding fees. My barn owner is registering him with the name "Speaking of Angels" in honor of all those who so selflessly gave of themselves to give him a chance at a wonderful life. In trying to secure shipping for this special case, I was quoted up to $300 more than what our final cost was. And, Lorraine had actually met the colt when he first arrived at the rescue and had a special place in her heart for him as well. Lorrain was very personable, genuinely cared for and about her cargo and treated them all like they were her own. We at the barn, feel like we not only found a reliable shipper through U Ship, but have found a lifelong friend in Lorraine. Thank you for this service and for bringing us all, closer together.
