HER NEXT HURDLE IS A LIFE SAVING SURGERY, 1500 MILES FROM HOME. I KNOW GOD HAS A PLAN FOR HER, SHE WILL COME BACK TO ME IN 4 WEEKS TO FULLFILL HIS PLAN "TO INSPIRE OTHERS" GODSPEED MY SWEET ANGEL!!!
UPDATE: ON JULY 4, 2011 ANGEL WAS 200 MILES FROM SHERIDAN WYOMING WHEN THE TRANSPORTER (ANTHONY STOUT-TDS HORSE TRANSPORT) FAILED TO SECURE THE REAR DOORS OF THE SEMI AND MY SWEET ANGEL FELL OUT THE BACK OF THE SEMI. SHE IS TRUELY AN ANGEL NOW. A TRAGEDY THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED!!!!!
@[100000689053971:Angel Preston] was the 3 legged horse that was a client of Kelly's. Her owner trusted her to TDS Horse Transport, Gladstone, VA. The horse died in their care due to a stupid accident. The door was left unfastened on the back of the semi horse trailer. Angel fell out at some point, 200 miles from her destination in Sheridan, WY where she was due to have surgery on her stump. The driver drove 80 miles before he realized anything was wrong and back tracked. In the mean time Angel laid on the road until a sheriff came along and put her down. The driver didn't contact the owner for over 24 hrs, until she called to ask why he hadn't arrived yet. The owner of Angel was told by her lawyer to get the story out, to see if anyone has any information on how to help her get restitution. Any ideas? Angel was known to many because of her situation, and her owner is devastated, of course. It's one thing to lose a horse during surgery to complications, but she never got that far. Simple negligence, the driver neglected to check his trailer door at a truck stop, even though he noted kids hanging around the back of the trailer. As the former owner of a moving company, I know you always walk around your transport to check that all doors are secure. Even more so with live cargo.
