(Q) How can I prepare my animal/s for their trip?

 

(A) There are many things YOU can do to make your animals trip more comfortable:

 

No rich grain or feed for 2-3 days prior to shipment - This is not being cruel, it's being safe.

 

Let us know of any problems or issues up front, it is much easier on us and your animal, if there are no surprises along the way.

 

Build up your animal's system: Mix powdered electrolytes (found at most feed stores) in with your animal's water for a couple of days prior to shipment, especially if he/ she is in for a long trip, or going to an area with a different climate.

Q)How often do you stop to check animals ?

 

(A)We stop within 30 minutes of pickup, then every 2 hours to check on animals. This usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes.  This means that transport takes a little longer but your animal is safe and with someone that is legal. We stop for 10 hrs every night.

(Q) How long are health certificates good for?

(Q)  How long are coggins tests good for and how long does it take to get the
results back?         

(A)  A Coggins Test, aka An Equine Infectious Anemia Report, is necessary for each
horse to be transported, however, babies not yet weaned from their mothers
do not require a coggins test. Generally they are good for 6 months to a year
depending upon the state.  This can be answered by your vet.  Coggins tests take
anywhere from 2 days to 7 days to get the results back from the lab.

(Q)Will Hershey Transport LLC haul my horse's tack?

(A) Yes. If you are sending tack, PLEASE make sure all items are boxed in a
clean, water tight box (preferably a plastic rubber maid tub) and are clearly labeled with
your name, phone number, and your horse's name. Boxes shipped with us will
be kept in our trailer's neck or in the back of the truck. The driver has the right
to decide to take the boxes or not.


 #There will be a charge for the tack #

(Q) Do you unload the animals at night ?

(A) Depends,  if animal is on a full trailer for 12 hours, or on trips over 750 miles than yes we do.

 If trailer is not full, and there is plenty of room for animals to bed down, than no we don't 

[ but fresh water, hay, and feed will be available to animals for the night.]

 

We try very hard to limit this situation as much as possible, for your animals / our safety & well being.
