    We have purchased several great animals through Hired Hand Live sales, Internet Only Sales and Special event sales.  The TEAM goes out of their way to provide great buyer / seller experiences.  We wouldn't have several of Our great foundation animals without the Hired Hand Gals ( even when a phone call or text is needed to fine tune a system ).  Hired Hand is Great !
