"At some sale barn in Missouri" said the hauler when we finally got him to answer his cell. Beamer shipped out from Oklahoma on Saturday and was supposed to arrive here today but when we failed to hear from the shipper Bruce and I started to panic. It seems the original hauler got sick, arranged for a substitute driver who then passed the buck to a buddy of his...all without updating me!
When I tried to contact the original shipper with whom I have a contract his website had been taken down as of this AM..
So where the #=#×/^%& is my horse? The most recent driver said he was told to leave the horse in Missouri and that was all he could tell us. Where Beamer is and who is taking care of him heaven only knows (I sure don't), though word is we should expect him some time this week.
I'm headed straight away to my bank to get a refund on my shipping deposit and if Beamer is in any way harmed there WILL be hell to pay.
