Equine Transporter regulations
My dream horse had to be euthanized after developing shipping fever from a horrific hauling experience from the Midwest to Texas. Where can I locate specific DOT regulations regarding length of time horse can be in a trailer withing an overnight layover? Also specific length of time a single driver can be behind the wheel? How many hours they can travel without unloading for any type of rest, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The health certificates were all in order. This was a negligent driver problem. A 13-hour haul took over 33 hours for my poor horse. Thank you in advance. I've tried web searches and calls to DOT but not having much luck.
