Randall Glen provides careful, personalized transport for your horses and livestock.
Local or long distance, we haul:
- Llamas & Alpacas
- Ostriches, Emus, & Exotics
- We’ll even haul your chickens, ducks, and rabbits!
- Our transport staff includes a driver and assistant, both highly experienced in handling livestock.
- We are DOT compliant.
- We use a 25-foot gooseneck straight load trailer and a 2-horse trailer, depending on the number of animals transported. We pull with a 2018 Dodge 3500 Super Turbo truck with 4 Wheel Drive and enhanced suspension.
- Our trailers are equipped with video and audio cameras for monitoring your stock.
- On trips over 100 miles we stop every 3 to 4 hours for hay, water, and a rest for your stock. The owner is asked to supply one bale of hay per animal in order not to disrupt your animals’ diet.
- We are covered by equine roadside assistance in case of mechanical difficulties. In addition to towing and mechanical assistance, this coverage provides help in locating nearby veterinary assistance and/or boarding in case of overnight repairs.
We Don’t Just Ride the Highways!
We ride both the highways AND the byways. Our equipment is fast and safe on the interstates, but we ride the back roads too. We specialize in getting in and out of tough locations–little gravel lanes, winding mountain roads, tight barnyards. Our driver has 25 years of trailer expertise.
“The critters arrived safe and sound thanks to your crew! They really went above and beyond for these animals and I just wanted you guys to know I really appreciate all the time, effort, and care you all put into getting them here.” –B.E., Lincoln University, PA October 2022, 13 alpacas & 1 Great Pyrenees, 1510 miles
“Thanks for doing such a professional job of transporting my ponies. Your care was certainly noted. Also your helpers were awesome!” –E.B., Franklin, NC August 2022, 2 horses, 166 miles
We transport most horses in our 25-foot 4-horse trailer. It has a low deck for easy loading, and the extra roominess helps prevent the claustrophobia that some horses feel in a 2-horse trailer. We constantly monitor our passengers with our audio and video “horse cam”.
Smaller stock is transported in either our 2-horse or 25-foot trailer depending on size and number.
