When Becky Shady and her grandfather pulled up at Blain’s Farm and Fleet in Dubuque, Iowa, they had on their trailer three Becky and Ruby 2young horses that had never so much as been touched. Within two hours, Ray had not only been able to place his hands on “Mustang Sally,” the first of the young horses, he had haltered her, saddled her, dewormed her, taught her how to load in and out of the trailer and sat on her back for the very first time.
Becky Shady said: “I saw the signs in Farm and Fleet and in the paper. We just had planned to come and watch, and I walked in to Blain’s about a week and a half before the show and there was a sign that said they needed horses. It had Ray’s number, so I called.
He’s unbelievable. We would go down with a bucket of grain for two months straight. There are seven horses total, and we’d been taking buckets of grain. After two months, some of them would get close enough to eat a little bit out of our hands.
The second horse that Ray worked with, Ruby, after two months, she wouldn’t even let you get close enough to eat out of the bucket, let alone your hands. Now, after less than an hour with Ray, to have it to the point where I can touch it is amazing. It’s absolutely incredible.
I’m so impressed, and I definitely recommend Ray to other people.”
