I'm looking to ship a horse from VA to GA, and I saw their ad at the top of the forum. Does anyone have experience with them? Would you recommend them? I'm open to any other suggestions as well, I'm having a hard time finding anyone who can come in the next few weeks.
The drivers are horsemen. I know most of them. One of thetm is my husband. They have goosenecks, 3 horse vans, 6 horse vans, and tractor trailers. They always stop after a few hours to check on the horses and top off their water. You can also request an attendant to stay in the back with your horse too.
I've used Brookledge locally. The only interaction I've had with Sallee was a driver waiting in line at the pharmacy who was bragging to the clerk that he just beats the crap out of racehorses on his truck if they misbehave and wipes the blood off before delivering them. I hope he was exaggerating. It wouldn't stop me from using them, but I would ask some extra questions.
I highly doubt that driver did that. You can't hide something like that. Sallee would of got in trouble, probably sued, lose that client and many more too
That's pretty much what I thought too...that he was trying to act the tough guy. But still...it pushed me towards Brookledge instead. I suppose I should have called Sallee when I heard him...and let them know what was being said. I blew that one.
