R.I.P. MY SWEET ANGEL-Killed by a horse transporter!

Please be aware of TDS Horse Transport out of Virginia. Hired to transport my special needs Gypsy Cobb (she had three legs) to Wyoming from Michigan. He forgot to secure the back doors of the semi he was hauling her in and my sweet baby girl fell out the back. He didnt know it for 80 miles later when a motorist stopped him to tell him his back doors were open. He failed to call me for 24 hours after she was killed. He has yet to apologize or show any remorse. She was killed one month ago (July 4,2011) today and the pain is not subsiding. She was only 2 years old and had such a tragic start to life. She did not deserve the tragic ending she got. Anthony Stout said it was an accident. I say it was gross negligence on his part. Denette Her youtube video is THREE LEGGED ANGEL - ANGELS JOURNEY

I am so, so very sorry for you loss. That's absolutely tragic. I can't even imagine the pain you must be feeling.

I really wish there was an "Angie's List" for the horse industry. You can find reviews on almost any other business by googling or through the BBB. But, it seems that so many people fear being blasted when sharing negative experiences with providers of horse services. We want references and reviews on child care services, why is it so taboo to have reviews on horse services?

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

Absolutely. When I sent in a BBB report about a shipping company which had beat the ever-living-hell out of a horse, they called and threatened me with a lawsuit. Even though everything I said was 100% accurate, with two eyewitnesses to back it up, and the horrific abuse was undeniable.

I'm sorry for your loss. TDS has a very bad reputation.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

So sorry for your loss. Transport is a tricky thing. The popular haulers are cheap and quick. Not always the safest.

I am so sorry for your loss. That's terrible what happened. No owner or animal should have to go through that. So very sad.
