when our mare was getting on the trailer very bad weather was being forcast. We voiced our concerns the we didnt want her to travel in those cond. My Husband rec. a call from the shipper said he had gotten in at 3:00 am so he laid over at his place.(he is in southern Maine im 5 hrs north)he also said she has a "little cough". Her layover there was about a day because of bad road conditions. After her dilv. her cough alarmed us, and the discharg from her nose so we called our vet he told us only 1in 500 horses walk off a trailer with a cough.He checked her out and the next morning she was transported to a fac. where she can be given 24hr vet tech care and freq.vet checks.
Long story short with all here care meds.ect.2WEEKS at the vet tec. barn. The vet came to the conclusion she had gotton SHIPPING FEVER.IT COUST US OVER$2000.00. He told us horses should be given breaks while being shiped at least every 4hrs to be untied alowed to drink strech out ect. The timing seemed like he drove straight through(who knows)I sadens me that a person chose to work with animals and dosent try to give the best possible care. I wrote him a letter telling him what happend and he should help pay, he said she was a wild horse that was never shipped never had attion and he couldnt tie her to the trailer. she was stressed that is how it happened.
Well why does a person need to lie the mare isnt even from that barn he picked her up from she isnt wild and is broke to ride, Im not the first to ride her. Also my husband help him unload her and she was tied in the trailer so why does he need to lie at all. and oh yea she lost her baby we dont know if she expelled it in the trailer, she is going to get re-bred this spring. I hope no one else has to see there horse go through this it was heartbreaking at one point the vet told us if there was (chest-tap)chunky supstance we would need to put her down, the expence would be to great. thank you for your time
