    Yes, I asked if he would check around for me. I told him I would look as well. I think he thought I was going to come get her but as I am in MA it is just too much driving for next week.

    Any thoughts on someone I can call to ship a horse from Mountaineer to Aiken, SC? I tried Brookledge and they said no. I need to move her fairly quickly.
