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 :cry: 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?

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 am truly sorry for the loss that you must be feeling. The video that was posted really made me cry :( But thanks to people like you and your family at least she had what could probably be considered the best two years of any horses life :) On a side note I love how she and the tan colored dog matched- with the same leg missing :) Again I am truly sorry and just remember that she did touch many lives while she was still with us and you can never lose that.

I think that you really need to get the law involved as this was 100% preventable. Its not like she got lose and got hit- he left the doors open. I would contact a lawyer and a good one too Call Sam :) or as much as I detest him Jeffery Feiger (sp?) loves cases like this and would probably win. I hope you find some kind of closure and peace with this situation. I again am truly sorry for your loss. RIP Angel :'''(

This is such a sad story. I'm sorry for your loss OP. You made the best decision you could with the information you had at the time. The video broke my heart yet it was also amazing to see Angel go about her life despite only having 3 legs. (((HUGS)))
