"I recently imported stallions from Europe, as you can imagine to travel all the way across the world, the quarantine process and then a long haul before they finally getting home can be really stressful on some horses. After having the horses a few days at home, I noticed that one of them didn't "feel right" so I call Amy to see if she could help him out. She was able to spot the issue with the first few steps and address the issue right away. When Amy came back the week to follow up, we were both able to notice that he was back to normal and didn't need further treatment. I would strongly recommend Amy for her knowledge, common sense and genuine care for the animal."
