We have transported for this customer before and all went well. She wanted us to transport a pony that had a previous founder issue. While in transit with this pony, the pony was "sore" but not "truly foundered". We transported this pony per her request, as the pony was comfortable and able to withstand the transport. The second time we transported for this customer, the seller in OH must have sold her bad horses. We are only the transport company and can not take blame on what the customer buys sight un-seen, or what the seller sells the buyer. If the horse developed a splint on the trailer, then the horse would have been lame off the trailer at unloading, and that was not the case. We shipped for this customer months ago, and now they want to say several months later that there was a problem. THe horse was signed off as received in good condition, and we can not be held responsible that a "bad" horse was bought by the buyer and sold by the seller. We are just the transport company.
