Archive for the ‘margaret ransom’ Category

We are not amused.  To be clear, by `we’ I am referring to the royal `we’ although I fully expect that to fly right over most heads.  I especially expect it to fly over those of the village idiots, and much ado will be made of nothing as is the usual reaction from them.   Anyhow, back to me and my disgust… I was off resting on my laurels figuring the bulk of what I set out to do with HiCaliber was either accomplished or in the works.   It’s been kinda nice reclaiming my personal time and not having to have The Manson Family in my thoughts most of my waking hours.  Sadly, it seems that HiCaliber will not go quietly into the night and the death throes drag on.  That also means that horses are still getting shot for no good reason, lies are being told and, once again, I feel compelled to lay down an update.  So, for old times sake and posterity, let’s pull up a chair, pop the cork, twist the cap or whatever and deal with the never ending shit show that is HiCaliber.   This is going to hop around a bit today mostly because I can’t be arsed to make things linear and I do what I want.  Buckle up!

It seems that Manson has been making an effort to clean up the mountains of manure from the ranch property in recent weeks.  The timing is weird, but better late than never. Sadly, this entails loading the manure up and trailering it over to a neighboring property.  All this was witnessed by somebody that was visiting the ranch.  According to this source they gained access to this property off Calle Oro and through T-posts and rolled up fencing.  The property in question has goats and chickens within view of the road.  HiCaliber wasn’t being overly secretive or stealth about doing this so perhaps the neighbor is ok with having their diseased waste trucked over to his place.  It’s probably better than how they used to just shove it over onto public land.  I wonder if the county knows?

That’s right, for the minor sum of only $40 you too can learn breeds, colors and markings from the very same person that thinks horses have back knees and has no clue about how to eyeball a height on an animal.  If you’re super lucky, Manson may make a cameo appearance and show us how to find a dorsal stripe by looking underneath a horse or how a foal that does not have black points may shed buckskin.
  

Not content to spread misinformation on that which can be easily googled, Amanduh continues to teach unsuspecting people to ride as poorly as she does.  Apparently proper footwear is optional as is adjusting stirrups to the appropriate lengths.  I also learned that riding a dead lame horse was also fine because it’s what he loves it and he is depressed otherwise. I’m sure that standing in a small stall 24/7 while getting eaten alive by flies and choking for water has nothing to do with his depression though​.  Don’t get me started on the whole `gait regulation’ and how you use your seat by not having it in the saddle.  I’m sure glad Amanduh is on the job to tell us what `real’ horsemen do.

I’m sure that anybody that has been following this on any level knows about the Valley Center Western Days Parade clusterfuck that has gone down over the last week.  It has caused beans to be flicked on both sides of the fence as nearly everybody has gotten their drama boots on and waded right in.  Minor children were bullied and ridiculed, lies were told and all around fuckery ensued. I’m not even going to bother rehashing it all.  I think it’s important to put the actual facts out though.  The reason why horse people are concerned with HiCaliber being in the parade was the risk to their own horses.  Manson may think Strangles is `no big deal’ but most horse people know better.
Here are some screen shots and emails clearly showing there has been an ongoing Strangles issue at HiCaliber for well over a year.  It also clearly shows that Manson was not only aware of it but so is her adoption team as they were addressing it in recent contracts.  Remember that the initial order from the Western Days committee was that no horse exposed to Strangles within the last 12 months would be allowed to be in the parade.  Sadly, knowing the Manson Family, they would have likely worked around that claiming the horses they were riding weren’t exposed and that’s where a lot of the concern was for many people.  I know that Manson claims they have `major’ biosecurity measures in place.  How does she really even know considering she rarely waltzes her happy ass to the more remote areas of the ranch?

This screenshot was from one of their private groups and was posted about a week ago.  One of their regular volunteers described her day at HiCaliber.  What I want people to notice is the order of paddocks she visits, clearly admitting to `petting and scratching’ horses as she went around the property.  AFTER visiting the QT/Vineyard area, she went to the nursery letting them smell her and petting them, on to North herd where she stopped to pet more and then to South herd and Rivers Run.  THIS is just an example of why people do not trust the biosecurity at HiCaliber or want their own horses exposed to HiCaliber horses and it’s valid.  What I find saddest of all is that this small community has had to deal with all this drama and complete fuckery when they are just trying to hold a family event.
It’s a real shame things even had to go his far as it is a complete dick move to knowingly spread Strangles or any other disease around.    I actually don’t even get what the big fuss about being in the parade is for HiCaliber.  Judging by pics of the recent parade they were in and other past performances, it’s not a great advertisment for them or their horses.  You have Manson riding horses that are far too small for her, none of them are groomed and even the riders look raggedy.  Their time would be far better spent at home grooming and feeding their animals and if they must go in the parade, then walk the route holding a sign or drive the golf carts or something.  Just give these poor horses a break because they all look horrible and nobody needs to see Manson doing a 2 point starfish while spilling out of her saddle and sexually harassing anything and everything that crosses her path.  For crying out loud it doesn’t even look like they bothered to clean their tack or dust off their boots.  I suppose we’re going to have to replay this all again as Manson is planning on riding in the July 14th San Diego Pride Parade despite the fact she has said she plans to close down by June 30th.  I’m sure Manson’s criminal defense attorney, Mr. Fancy Socks, will fight for their right to party though.

 One of the features of Parade-gate was good ole Mags charging into the middle of things and basically losing her shit.  Actually, not basically, completely losing her shit and as of this writing, the meltdown continues.   Because the default setting of Mags and the village idiots is to cry `bully’ and point fingers without realizing that every time they do so, three fingers are pointing right back at them, they decided to bully a 14 year old girl that has NOTHING to do with any of the HiCaliber drama beyond a genuine concern about riding her own horse in the parade.  When her concerned father stood up for her and brought it right to the source, all hell broke loose and Mags called him a `shitty parent’ for doing so.  Given her partner’s past criminal charges to do with his own child, I guess Mags isn’t in a position to judge anybody on their parenting skills.  It was also at this point that Mags appears to have lost her tenuous grip on her sanity as she heaved herself up on the cross and played the victim card for all it was worth claiming to be the victim of bullying.

Where do I even start?  Margaret, you need to get your money back.  Seriously and on all that I hold dear, you are barking up the wrong tree.  In fact, the tree your barking up isn’t even in the right time zone.  YOU are the bully.  You have been told over and over again, you are wrong and you continue to lie about having proof.  By all means go to court.  I won’t be there, but the people you are targeting as me have a very strong case against you.  You have torn people to shreds thinking they are me, you have attempted to discredit me and maligned everything I write.  Tit for tat, Mags.  Not my fault you self identified when I originally posted a blind item about you. I think a year long temper tantrum is a bit excessive and had you actually hired a PI to find out who I was, that’s boil a bunny level creepy.  Your back pedal game is super strong though…BTW the AG investigation, along with the multiple other agencies, is ongoing and Manson has been cleared of nothing.

This one made me laugh.  Little hint for Mags though, even wordpress doesn’t have my actual identity.  By all means though, go on with your bad self and the court orders and PIs.  LOL.

From what I can gather, Mags is not well versed on animal advocacy.  She seems to have zero clue who the players are and what people’s credentials actually are.  Funny how it’s not bullying when Margaret spreads untruths and mocks people’s misfortunes though.  I could tear Mags’s personal advocacy claims to absolute shreds but a) what would be the point? and b) I have too much respect for the sources of my intel.  It doesn’t matter anyhow as there is no law that says Mags has to respect TC and there is certainly no law that says anybody has to respect Mags or believe anything she says.
margbully
 I’m not sure if all this is in order, but Mags made a dramatic post.  I can only imagine it was actually put up to inspire people to talk her out of leaving because she hardly even took a break from posting.  It was telling that it was mostly village idiots that told her not to go and the racing community remained silent.  It was also kinda weird how she went full bully after making this post and really didn’t appreciate having the mirror held up to her own face.
You know what I find funny?  I haven’t posted for weeks and she’s still obsessed with me.  I think the regular readers here can attest that even my comments have been sporadic and mostly late at night.  For sure D can attest that I haven’t been around all that much lately.  I also am highly amused given the fact that Mags has posted in private groups about how little my opinion matters and if you want to see screen shots of that along with Mags admitting she really doesn’t know who writes this blog, you can refresh your memory in Writing On The Wall…With Crayons!
Mags didn’t appreciate having her own hypocrisy pointed out to her it seems.  It also seems that even what remains of her own friends have tried to point out to her that she’s off on a tangent.  If anything, Mags picked up steam after this exchange even though she deleted Abby’s comments.
Here we have anti-bullying warrior Mags bullying people.  I’m not sure if she is daring Jennifer to blog about her or she’s daring me, but since I’m the one with a blog and I do love a good dare… I’m not entirely sure what the $100 letter is or why we’re talking bankruptcy but given the fact that Mags’s legal counsel has so far been Angrid, who is not even a member of the California bar, she’s probably not in a position to throw darts here. I’m also not sure how somebody that has to run gofundme campaigns to pay her vet bills and so her partner can buy a used van can afford to hire PIs.  Like I said, she needs to get her money back.  I have a shitload more screen shots I could post showing Mags bullying people, calling names and lying, but what’s the point?  If they haven’t learned by now, I do what I want, I post what I want and if they continue to poke me in the chest, they will continue to get negative attention.  Let’s move on.
 
This is a video where Manson tells another pack of lies.  The person she is talking about is Salvador Paniagua.  This would be the same guy who she used to refer to as `the worst of the worst’ and has claimed there is a language barrier with.  He is a known tripper and the incident with FHR she is referring to is well documented.  He showed up at Mike’s auction with 7 completely mangled horses that had been tripped and demanded $250 each for.  Rather than pay his ransom, FHR called in AC and they suggested that he take $100 each.  It should be noted that none of these horses were in acceptable enough condition to actually be run through auction.  Once the horses started being transferred off Salvador’s trailer and it became apparent how bad of shape they were in, FHR offered $600 for all 7 horses just to get them safe and it was accepted.  All but two horses were too badly injured to save and after being seen by a real vet, they were humanely euthanized. That is the truth of the situation rather than Manson’s version of events.  It’s also what a true rescue and advocate would have done.  Manson bought a load of tripped horses off Salvador just this past January and rather than call AC, she arranged to meet him and pay his ransom.  She also shot the horses herself rather than letting them see a vet.  I should probably mention that Manson and her village idiots mocked FHR and made an issue about them having to put down the 5 horses from Salvador.

Owens Intake February/18

Owens is one of the pasture puffs awaiting adoption at HiCaliber.  As is obvious from the pictures above, he’s losing condition despite Amanduh’s claims he has put on lots of weight.  I’m not seeing it.

ficemeth1

Before I get onto the last few things, I thought a little comic relief from Ficehole would be appropriate.  Now, I’m certainly no computer whiz, but I have noticed that when I google something or look at certain web pages, the ads Facebook shows me usually have something to do with that.  I’m guessing it’s something to do with cookies or something.  I can also say that Facebook has never shown me drug paraphenalia ads or anything remotely close and that’s probably because I a) don’t do drugs and b) don’t google drugs.  The fact that Fice has meth pipes coming up on his feed is both funny and telling.  The fact that he’s indignant about it is hilarious.

Nathalie is one of the newer Manson Family members and ranch residents.  Manson has mentioned several times that she is from Norway or The Netherlands or some place like that and that she is visiting.  Since moving in with Manson it seems she is doing a bit more than visiting and actually acting as a front for flipping Manson’s personal project horses.  Buddy the Peruvian Paso is actually the horse Manson bought for herself and promptly named Foreskin.  Buddy also seems to have severely dropped pasterns and I’m not sure how any of the HiCaliber gunsels know what `gaiting beautifully’ is when they usually diagnose them as neuro and shoot them in the face when they are gaited.  I also recall some other Peruvians who were shot in the head for having dropped pasterns within days of their arrival at HiCaliber.  I guess they didn’t figure they could squeeze the last few pennies out of those horses.  I’m sure having a rider much top large on him, isn’t helping Buddy with his pastern issues either.  It seems Nathalie is also `adopting’ HiCaliber horses and is the new owner of Ryland.  I wonder if wheeling, dealing, grifting and working under the table is something her visitor visa allows?  Maybe Miss Homeland Security aka Angrid would know.

 

Remember the $25 `mare’ at auction and the legendary rant that Wrinkles went on?  The same horse that turned out to be a gelding and had actually been purchased by an advocate?  His name is Don Q and the above pics are of him in his new home.  They were taken within the last week or so.  Don Q is the one with the one white sock.  His buddies are Hickory, who is also blind and came from a hoarding situation in another state, and Sarge who is toothless and ancient and came from FHR.  All three horses are living the good life and are very loved.  I’m also told that Don Q no longer has shoes on so Wrinkles can stop worrying about that as well.  Too bad Manson won’t allow horses to be adopted by `haters’ because this advocate has a fondness for puffs.  I hear she likes them even more than she likes blue water bottles.

Manson has put out a few posts saying they are nearly out of hay or they can’t pay for a load that just came.  I guess she spent all her money on sending her criminal defesne attorney to meetings to fight for her `constitutional right’ to spread Strangles ride in a parade.  While she claims to have adopted out several horses in the past few weeks, her feed bill seems to be about the same.  None of the village idiots bother to question that just like they don’t realize that while she is dumping horses right, left and center, she is bringing news ones back to the ranch at nearly the same rate.  The only difference is that she’s not telling her village about them or bothering to give them names which makes it all the easier for them to vanish off the face of the earth.  Not exactly the actions of somebody that is closing their doors, but more the action of somebody that is transitioning to become a full on flipper.  I know I sound like a broken record, but Manson is not going to exit quietly or quickly.  Hell, we’ve already passed the window for this to be quick at least a month ago.  I guess there is always that one guest that doesn’t know when it’s time to leave the party, right?

When I resurrected this blog, I never thought I’d be here a year later still dealing with this shit.  I certainly never wanted to be anybody’s leader or even a point person. I just wanted to get some things off my chest and document what I saw as a trainwreck in the making.  I’ve been in this advocacy game for a while and if I know anything, I know it’s far better to head off a trainwreck than clean one up. It’s also nearly impossible to head them off for just the reasons we have seen played out this past week alone.  Even though I am in the horse industry and have been my whole life, I know it attracts crazy.  Add social media to that mix and you have a whole other level of nuts.  What I saw this past week was local horse people genuinely concerned for their own animals and trying to do something about it through proper channels.  I also saw several people on both sides of the fence insert themselves into the situation for the sake of drama.  It was gross.  It’s also not something I wish to participate in. I’m busy in my life and I have zero time for social media flame wars.  That being said, I’m not going to drop this issue either.  As I have said all along, I will stay the course and see things through.  I don’t care who wants to grab credit or be a hero once the dust settles.  That was never my goal.  I just want to save some horses.  Maybe it’s time for some people to ask themselves what they are in this for.

If the last post pissed you off or wasn’t your thing, it might be best to scroll through to the bottom half of this one.  It seems I have some `leftovers’ that need to be dealt with​.  For months now, I have attempted to mostly take the high road in regards to a lot of behind the scenes stuff I have been aware of.   I’ve attempted to keep the focus on the end game despite several threats and moves to block that.  Aside from occassionally rolling up the proverbial newspaper and smacking people on the nose when things got out of hand, I didn’t give much time to the attempted blockers.  With the blessing of fellow advocates that have been taking hits on my behalf, we have kept moving forward towards getting some relief for and putting an end to the exploitation of all the animals acquired by HiCaliber.  However, the closer we get to that end, the more vicious and outrageous the attacks have become and I have finally reached my tipping point.  The last post was calculated and it did, in fact, hit the mark.  It kicked off a round of tantrums, threats and pure asshattery, the likes of which I have never seen supposedly grown adults engage in.  I’m disgusted, I feel unclean having to read them and I’ve finally had enough.  More than enough, actually.  I am nothing if not loyal to my fellow advocates and for the ones that have been bullied in my place I am `going there’ today, with their blessings.  I won’t even say it’s the last time because I will no longer stand for the targeted harassment of innocent parties.  So, for my long time readers, please forgive me.  We’ll be back to our regular scheduled blogging in the second half of this post.  For the rest of you that like tea, settle in because a bunch is about to be spilled with receipts.

To refresh everybody’s memories, I posted some stuff from Mags and Pasterfuck’s super secret group in the last post.  I had been watching them for a while before I posted the things about Barbara Benson and I did so in consultation with her.  As we all predicted, the meltdown was nearly instantaneous and, to use a Pasterfuckism, it was epic.  I swear they take shifts monitoring any and all social media 24/7.  I particularly enjoyed Pasterfuck naming off all his private groups he was in charge of at the time.  We’ll get to that in more detail later.  Amberloser, being a rocket scientist, blames it all on the Horror Girls for whatever reason.  I think it’s been pretty clear I don’t have any real ties to them and haven’t for quite some time, so I’m not really sure why they got brought up. What I did not calculate was how stupid these people can be and how invested they are in all of this drama with no concern for the animals involved.  Unfortunately, rather than the fallout from that post splattering on myself, they went hard after Jennifer Marek yet again.  Because I truly like and respect Jennifer as a fellow advocate and because she has taken far more than her share of hits on my behalf, I feel the need to leak some more…with her blessing.

 

As is her usual schtick, Mags went into a public and private posting frenzy to show how unbothered she was and to further target Jennifer Marek.  She also attempted to get the pictures from the last blog pulled down to no avail and perjured herself in the process.  It was request denied due to it falling under fair use.  I was somewhat curious as to what letters she sent to Not Me, but I didn’t have to wait long to find that out either.

Chat8

Mags openly admitting she really doesn’t know who writes the blog but is targeting Jennifer anyhow

So, to break this down short and sweet, there is the letter Marg claims to have sent Jennifer Marek.  I, personally, have not received anything other than my monthly bills in my mailbox for weeks except for an Amazon package which was a book I ordered.  I can’t speak for Jennifer since I don’t even live in the same time zone. If you want to follow Marg’s links in the letter, it is easy to see I never initially identified her.  I simply put a request out, based on screen shots I was sent, that she stop trying to pass herself off as me or at least allowing people to think she was me. You can read about that here.  Since I wrote that blog, Mags and Pasterfuck have been relentless in their pursuit of who I am, including Pasterfuck offering to pay for that information, egged on by Mags.  They basically outed themselves and self identified as Mags and Pasterfuck.  I can’t even lay claim to coming up with the `Maggot Rancid’ name since I didn’t coin it or even use it initially.  However if they would rather I use their given names so all this information is easier to google for people, I’m more than happy to oblige.  ​I made sure to tag them both in this post because I’m helpful like that.  There was even a time they were completely convinced I was Teresa Cook.  I’m not.  The emails up above are between Angrid and Teresa, who shared them with me.  Angrid, who is not a member of the California Bar, probably shouldn’t be `helping’ or advising anybody in a legal capacity.  I have screen shots of her asking for people to send all this info and other things to her from this blog as well as saying how she printed it all out.  The emails above were part of an entire email exchange where Angrid and Mags ganged up on TC in a particularly disgusting way, calling her names and ridiculing her.  For some reason, like she always does, Mags felt the need to give us her resume in that letter , which still fails to impress and ends the whole thing with blackmail.  Awesome.  Target an innocent person and demand 10k or you’ll sue them.  I’m pretty sure that is a felony offense in the state of California.  Good thing Angrid was helping her out with that!  I hope she does go to court, because the countersuit will be a slam dunk should Jennifer elect to file one.  I have several more screen shots from over the past year of Mags claiming how insignificant my blog is and how it had no affect on her work as well.  Kinda strange that she claims in a letter that all this damage was done when she thinks she can make some money off it. Also, just to keep things current and because I know this sticks in her craw,  Mags undershot the views of this blog by more than half.  I’m well over 2 million now.  (ps. Mags, I was kind enough to redact you and Jennifer’s addresses along with your phone number and email address.  A courtesy you did not extend Jennifer yourself, instead posting her home address in a private group of people who are actively digging up information and targeting others).

Before I get to some other bullying, this is another email Angrid sent Teresa Cook on the 13th.  She clearly requested my email address.  I’m not sure why she did because it’s never been a secret.  shedrowconfessions@gmail.com.  Both Twinkie and Ton Loc Mags and Pasterfuck have emailed me in the past so she could have just asked them.  Anyhoo, shortly after she requested my email address somebody mysteriously filed a takedown notice on my own blog and on my behalf using that email address on the form.  WordPress is a super awesome platform and they let you know about these things right away.  It took about 30 seconds to get that straightened out.  I guess I should be thankful they have taken a break from trying to hack my passwords for now.

There is just so much hypocrisy and crazy in these  screen shots.  Marg admitting she doesn’t care and saying nobody reads my blog which is kinda contrary to what she claims in her letter to Jennifer Marek.  Then some of them go after Teresa Cook for whatever reason.  Both these ladies, as I’m sure most of you know, are very well-known and respected advocates that have been in the trenches with the slaughter issue, along with many others, for a very long time.  The fact that Dixie moderates this blog is neither new or a secret.  She has done so since February when I was away for a bit.  I am still the only writer and have been since 2012.  Any guest posts have been clearly marked as such.  The reason the writing changed with the guest posts is because they are GUEST posts, as in I didn’t write them.  That’s how it works.  I’ve always been accused of being different people since the very beginning.  Back in the Sue Wallis days I was even accused of being a man for a bit.  One of the best screen shots in this series is Pasterfuck wanting to get his subpoena on.  Not sure how Pasterfuck is going to subpoena anybody.  The court has to issue those.  Maybe they better call up Angrid again for some of that legal help.  Notice that Marg swears she doesn’t do Baby Horror only.  I always knew she didn’t do that page but she sure was careful not to mention the pages she does do.

Here we have these people, who claim to be so against bullying, making plans to target other rescues.  They also have plans to target and dig information on individuals too.  Pasterfuck planned to devote his weekend into planning out his attack on `hater’ rescues.  It doesn’t matter how well they take care of their animals, it doesn’t matter how ethical they are, if they have ever questioned HiCaliber, Pasterfuck and his group are going to try to take them down.  WTF?  Then you have Mags taking issue with somebody who put a horse down yet never says shit when Manson blasts away at least two a week, every single week and usually for no good reason.  I don’t even know what horse or situation she is talking about with the other rescue and I’ll guarantee you Mags doesn’t either because even though she lives in the SoCal area, far be it for her to get off her ass and actually go check things out for herself.   These rescues that they are targeting all had their own interactions and dealings with HiCaliber.  They are within their rights to talk about that good, bad or indifferent.  Manson certainly has no problems talking shit about other organizations.  If this isn’t an attempt at bullying people into silence and retaliation, I don’t know what is.  Disgusting.

Pasterfuck.png

Pasterfuck has made it his personal mission to get Blankround taken down.  Again.  I find it ironic that a male ( I won’t call him a man) that has been arrested for domestic violence, threatened to punch women in the throat on live feed, and other bullying behaviors, has the audacity to call another man, who has publically stuck up for various women that Pasterfuck has attacked, a mysoginist.  I also don’t really get it because Blankround doesn’t really do a bunch other than insult them.  You know the old saying that what other people think of you is none of your business.  One thing nobody has ever accused Pasterfuck of is having any self-awareness.

Rescues and private citizens aren’t their only targets.  They plan to take down Dr. Moore too.  I’ll be honest and say that Dr. Moore and I haven’t always agreed on how to go about things, but make no mistake, I respect her as a veterinarian and an advocate for the welfare of horses.  I don’t care really care about anything else beyond that.  We may not work together but we work towards a common goal here.  They don’t even seem to have an issue with Dr. Moore’s knowledge or level of care.  How would any of them even know if they don’t use her?  They don’t like that Dr. Moore speaks out for the animals.  You know, the ones that don’t have a voice of their own.

It seems that Pasterfuck and Mags aren’t the only bullies.  Amberloser is also a huge bully or at least tries to be.  She is also going to target Mea Ola’s Place and try to bully Ann into silence.  I guess she doesn’t know Ann very well.  Oh well, in Amberloser’s world, just because she says something doesn’t mean she has to back up her shit.  She claims to have moles everywhere.  Girl, you need to get new moles.  Truly.  Protip: Real moles don’t use Facebook to discuss their strategies and intel.  The bigger your inner circle the more leaks you probably have.  That protip wasn’t just for the village idiots btw.

Here we see the secret group eating one of their own.  A few of their own actually.  They go after Rene for being a mole.  I choked on my coffee and jetted it right out my nose when I read that.  Rene has actually sent me hate mail recently.  I have ranked on her over and over again.  Safe to say she hates me.  I’m not even sure who Emily is.  Either way ladies, the welcome mat is out.  Have your people, call my people.

I literally can’t even with these people.  Really, they are going to bring up Travis’s mother?  The reason so many advocates know her is because she’s an advocate too.  In fact, she used to be pretty pro HiCaliber and that helped get them into their current property in the first place.  Obviously that was before Manson decided to be a complete shit to her.   Now they are trying to bully people away from buying a property.  I’m sure that will go over a treat with the owner.  You have Amberloser making more threats to dig up things on people and then you have Ole Sheila posting from her glass house.  I wonder how she’d like it if I posted her brother’s mug shots and the reason he’s in prison accompanied by the fact that she DEFENDS what he did.  Amberloser doesn’t want her business, friends and family contacted but she’s perfectly fine with putting that on blast for anybody she deems a hater.

This is a sampling of the various fundraising efforts that went on during HiCaliber’s suspension from the Attorney General.  There are many more screen shots complete with the time and dates stamps in my possession as well.  `Sandra Milstein’ which is said to be Manson and/or Angrid is involved too.  It’s actually kind perplexing to me how dumb some people are to hang their asses out on Facebook like they do.

I don’t know why this amuses me so much.  If you notice a common theme with all of them, it’s that horses are rarely ever mentioned.  It’s all about attaching themselves to Manson’s drama and being keyboard warriors.

bullymarg

Here they all are fighting among themselves apparently.  I guess with HiCaliber lying low on social media for a bit, they had to eat their own for their drama fix.  My favorite part of it is Mags, who is going to write the article on bullying, talking about humiliating people online.  So many pots and kettles here!

You have to understand the layers and layers of private and secret groups these people have.  Only a select few get to be in all of them.  Poor Izabelle tries super hard to be a good foot shoulder but she has trouble keeping track of the lies or maybe her mind just doesn’t work that way.  At any rate, the ones she thinks are her comrades in arms, like to talk shit about her in their bat cave.  Izabelle Kapp, come on down!  I swear I feel like I’m playing Red Rover with these people lately.

fireball coma

Ok, all you drama adverse people can come back now.  We’re going to return to our regular scheduled blogging starting with last Friday when HiCaliber finally got their suspension lifted from the AG.  Naturally, this prompted a drunken Fireball party, complete with Manson rolling around in her spilled drinks and food while eating salsa off the ground.  Village idiots sent money for Manson to drink even more as Wrinkles slurred for the camera and others danced inappropriately in the background before getting in their vehicles to presumably drive home after drinking.  Classy.  What I need everybody to realize is that this doesn’t mean they are cleared of anything.  The only thing that changed is HiCaliber finally filed their 2016 taxes and got out of delinquency.  This has nothing to do with their audit or all the other things going on.  Their original PayPal accounts are still frozen.  We expected this.

One of the funnier parts of the festivities was a very drunk Wrinkles asking Morgan from Pet Matchmaker about HiCaliber Haven only to be told she was long dead.  That wasn’t news to almost anybody but Wrinkles and was only funny because Wrinkles claimed she was her favorite horse.  This was followed by Wrinkles having no clue or memory of the other horses they had dumped off Pet Matchmaker’s way over the past 10 months or so. Way to follow up on those adoptions!

Rather than celebrate their ability to openly raise funds again by putting up some really good adoption videos, Manson elected to trail ride all weekend and once again, poor, skinny Braveheart was one of the victims, only this time he got to pack Romney Faye Baker.   Romney Faye was showing off her own unique equitation stylings that I like to call the `Fetal Starfish’.  Manson rode Chiefy the first day.  The poor mare hadn’t been ridden in months and Manson figured taking her on a trail ride up an incline was a kind thing to do while bragging about `going toe to toe’ with her the day before.  The mare was literally staggering as her ill-fitting halter slid down to further impede her breathing as she tried to pack Manson up the incline.  Again, this horse is too small for Manson.  Simple fact.  The second day Manson decided to pick on Paxton and, because she’s a gunsel, tied her own horse to the saddle to pony along.  You NEVER tie a horse to you.  Maybe if you know what you’re doing and are riding a seasoned horse, you can do a half dally, but only a complete moron would tie a horse to their horn.  As it was, Manson managed to fall off her horse  while he was standing still, followed by RFB nearly getting wiped off Braveheart while she shrieked and continued to stay live.  Because of this, I had this nice HiCaliber Horsemanship clip put together which includes wrong lead Amanduh,  JonASSthan getting dumped in the river last week and then Manson nearly getting tagged as she yanks on a stallion’s junk.  Good times!  Who didn’t have a good time is the horses that had to haul everybody’s asses on these trail rides.  They were all quite sweaty when they returned to the trailer and not a single one was offered a drink or had their sweat marks brushed before being thrown into the trailer for the long ride home while Manson likely did her usual fast food drive thru crawl.

Dane wasn’t on the trail rides this past weekend, but he does get picked on too.  He’s the horse with the droopy face they got not so long ago at auction.  Now, I’m not sure about everybody else, but if I had a horse with nerve damage in his face I would not ever put a thin rope knotty halter on him for any reason let alone to ride him.  If anything, I’d only put an open bridle to minimize the pain to his face which, despite some paralysis, is likely even more sensitive than a regular horse’s.  It’s this kind lack of empathy that never ceases to amaze me.  At any rate, Dane needs an upgrade in the worst way but chances are, now that he’s hauled Manson’s ass around without dumping her, he will have a ridiculous adoption fee attached.

I thought it might be nice to do a R2R update on one of the Louisiana horses that nobody thinks to ask after anymore.  She was a rescue transfer and went to her new home within a week or so after arriving from Louisiana.  The picture on the left is what she looked like right after arriving from Louisiana.  She was still in foal but in decent flesh.  The picture on the right is what she looks like now.  She’s still at the other `rescue’ who has been partnering more and more with HiCaliber lately.  They have also taken a page out of their book and started to buy direct from Bubba and put up crisis fundraising posts.  As anybody can clearly see, Denali, now named Savannah, is not thriving at rescue even months after foaling.  I don’t even have the energy to post the `training’ videos where they tie up feet on horses to teach them to pick them up or something.  I swear I’m losing my religion with this kinda thing.

Tanner

Last week Romney Faye, figuring the coast was clear now that HiCaliber can fund raise again, slithered out from under her rock to tug at the village heart-strings by reminding us that her son had passed away a year ago.  She also mentioned that while he didn’t dig horses in general, he`connected’ with his namesake foal, Tanner.  I’ve seen lots of people asking for updates on Tanner lately, especially since the last pic we saw of him was with a draining abscess under his jaw.  The above pic was taken the day after Romney Faye had spent the weekend at the ranch.  Not only did nobody see her go near Tanner the horse,  it is pretty clear this little horse hasn’t seen a brush or any kind of attention in quite some time.  It seems like I’ve said a million times that I feel badly for anybody that loses a child.  That’s not the natural order of things.  Nobody is making light of the situation no matter how they try to spin it.  Maybe we’re just not comfortable seeing a tragedy used as a fundraising ploy.  At any rate, a personal tragedy does not absolve somebody from being an asshole nor will it excuse RFB from her part things when this all comes crashing down.

I’m not sure who this little horse is.  Cleary he’s not in QT, yet he appears skinny with wind knots in his mane.  He also seems to be eating manure.

Unknown grey horse with a scab of some sort under his jaw.

eclipse.PNG

Eclipse remains in decent flesh and finally has those godawful wraps off her legs at least to be ridden but looking at this picture, I predict may be body sore in the immediate future.  Let’s hope she is one of those horses that is stoic when in pain rather than becoming behavioral as a result.  Amanduh did mention in a recent video she was hurting after her ride.  The concept of bringing horses gently back into work after they have stood in small enclosures for months on end, seems to be too difficult for the HiCaliber crew to grasp.

braveheart2

Both the top pictures were taken of Braveheart within the past week with the one on the right being the more recent.  He paces a lot and they ride the shit out of him.  Not exactly a recipe for putting weight on a horse.  They decided to show him off in their recent grifting video complete with absolutely filthy water tubs as he paced back and forth in his pen.  I can’t say that’s a huge surprise considering he’s directly across from a couple of mares, at least one of whom they laughed about the fact she’s constantly `winking’ at him.  He’s only recently been gelded.  If I had to guess, Braveheart’s life has gotten quite a bit worse since he had the misfortune of being `rescued’.

Magnum continues to show signs of being bloated and malnourished on their most recent video.  Of course the Manson family think he’s chubby and have informed the village idiots that they should think so too.  He was out in the arena as Amanduh’s young Heeler tormented both foals and came close to getting her teeth kicked in a few times.  Of course this was very funny to Amanduh and Wrinkles.  That might possibly be because they have visions of the gofundme windfall that will happen when the pup actually does get kicked and they can go live from the emergency vet clinic and beg for money.

As part of their Griftapalooza 2018 to make back the alleged deficit, Manson went out and manifested some seriously jacked up horses from her usual friends.  In at least two cases, we were supposed to suspend belief and think that they would actually be accepted to run through Mike’s last night in their condition.  The two in the worst shape seemed to come from the same known location.

Of the unfortunate four mentioned above, this mare turned up on the roadside in Norco being paraded around for donations.  She had been hauled there from her original location by Manson.  From the video, it appears that trimming her feet would go a long way to getting her comfortable.  I can’t say for certain if she was given that chance or if she is currently in a landfill  Manson’s trigger finger has been pretty itchy lately.

Hard to know what part of this to comment on first. This was the second tribute of the two that showed up on the side of the road in Norco with Manson.  I guess I can state the obvious and say that this mare’s injuries are consistent with having been tripped.  Left leg blown up with scraped up knees, scraped face and what appears to be a broken right shoulder.  Just because she has 4 shoes on doesn’t mean she wasn’t tripped.  They get these horses free off Craigslist or next to nothing at shitholes like Ontario, trip them and get rid of them.  HiCaliber has rewarded all this by paying the trippers to cover their asses and get rid of their `trash’.  Then you have HiCaliber claiming they need a new name because this mare’s was `offensive and ugly’.  I gotta wonder how bad it was considering Manson recently named a horse `Foreskin’.  The biggest lie there was good ole volunteer Johanna asking if people seriously wanted her to be transferred and transported elsewhere in her condition?  Why not?  Manson transported her and her OTTB buddy to Norco to show them off on the side of the road.  The trailer is clearly visible in the background with the other mare’s hooves in the pic too.  As far as where they picked them up, let’s just say I’m aware of where they got the mares and where the other two horses are too.  We don’t have word on whether Manson, Wrinkles and Romney Faye shot this mare before they went to the wedding or if she got to stand in the trailer and wait for them to get their drink on.  We likely will never know.

floofy

Floofy was a branded Mustang.  Originally they said he was 10 to 12 and they did not own him, but for whatever reason they aged him by a bunch more on the website and came to own him.  They also said he was a compassion pull to begin with but a few days later, they said that he was comfortable and could go be a pasture puff.  Barely a month later Manson shot him in the face.  This was after cancelling an adoption on him.  RIP Floofy.  #sayhisname

Jupiter lasted even less time than Floofy after having the misfortune of being purchased by HiCaliber.  They said he was a `little’ sore in his knees but didn’t indicate he was on death’s door.  Honestly when you see what they transported and kept alive this weekend, how bad could this horse have been in comparison?  At any rate and for whatever reason, Jupiter was also recently shot in the face.  I wish I could tell you all why.  RIP Jupiter.  #sayhisname

I think that’s probably enough to digest for today.  I realize I’ve been a bit more quiet than normal lately, but rest assured I have been no less busy with this stuff. The information still flows.   However, the closer we get to the end of this journey, the more people seem to lose their minds and want to be heroes.  Quite frankly,  I’ve been kinda disgusted with the sparring back and forth that goes on over on Facebook.  You rarely ever see horses mentioned on either side.  Some people are in such a rush to be a hero, they can’t keep anything in their pants which makes a lot more work for some of us and puts the end results at risk too.  It almost makes me wonder if supposed `haters’ actually want this to end or are just enjoying the drama and attention. Make no mistake that HiCaliber is in its death throes, but now is not the time to be complacent either. We are a long ways from rolling around in Fireball and salsa.  I will continue to do what I do and keep people in the loop as warranted.  My hope is that some of you, and I’m not talking about the people who comment here, can be a bit more responsible with the information that gets shared.  This has been an immense and taxing amount of work for a core group of us for well over a year now and we’re not in it for the glory. True advocacy is never about that.  I promise that when the fat lady finally sings, I’ll share how it all went down behind the scenes.  I won’t do it for the glory, but so that the next time this happens somebody else can lead the charge. For now, please support the hard working and legitimate rescues in SoCal. We’re going to need every last one of them in the very near future…

This is going to be short and sweet today. I’m working on a bigger post with some updates that should be ready by the weekend but I have a little guest post for y’all today.  Originally, I was going to put this open letter in that post, but I feel like given the absolute and extreme fuckery that has gone on the past few days, it needed its own spot.  It’s not a long post, but it’s a good one.  Before we get into the open letter part of things, I’m going to put a little context into what prompted this so that maybe others can see the level of bullying and paranoia that is actually being played out behind closed doors. I’m also going to bookend it some hypocrisy from the head shithead so please read all the screen shots.  As always, thank you to our poster for saying your piece.  I have nothing but respect for you.  This one is fun!

shoooesss!

 

I hope I have these mostly in order.  It’s pretty easy to follow along anyhow.  All the usual suspects are fixated on Barbara Benson and this was from auction just this past Tuesday courtesy of Maggot and Pasterfuck’s private bat cave. Make sure you read how they tear apart this person who dared to show up at auction.  They even call her fat at one point and they aren’t content to tear just one person down, they rip apart anybody and everybody.  Now that we’ve got some context, let’s get to the guest post part of the festivities…

 

Dear Robyn, Suzanne, Margaret, Michelle Parsons, good ole Nancy, Tony and whoever else is oh so interested in me.

I am really not into speculations, so I will save you some time googling and spreading false information.
I am all for facts (something you have a hard time with).
Let me help you out here.

Robyn:
Not sure which poor soul you identified as me, but I was nowhere near Ontario, Tuesday 04.10.
As a matter of fact, I was shooting in Glendale.
I had a 8am calltime and we wrapped around 6pm.
I even made my FB public, so you can see for yourself.
I also wasn’t at auction with some blue water bottle last week or the week before.
Allegedly someone has pictures.
I must have a lot of Doppelgängers. I had no clue.

Suzanne:
Gold star for figuring out my legal name.
Either you reversed searched my cell number, which is easy enough for $4.95.
Or the auction house identified me, which would be illegal, but then again, so is speeding.

Margaret:
I am totally chubby in the world of skinny Hollywood folks. No doubt. Maybe we should start a diet together. You don’t really look in shape these days either.
We do have a mutual friend. You guys went to school together, he said. If you need more info about me, call him. He knows me well.

So let me tell you about me.
I have been a producer all my adult life. A good 20+ years.
I won’t list my achievements or jobs. That you can google. Easy enough. Right.
I also consult on horse intense jobs, being in the industry and being a life long equestrian.
I am a private advocate and rescuer. Never make public who I support and what horses I rescued. But be assured, I not only financially support rescues, but also have a few horses in sanctuary from local rescues and find placement for horses in need in CA and out of state.

Robyn.
Remember the 25.00 mare, ummm blind gelding, from your epic rant last week. You know, the one with shoes.
I committed to that horse before he was loaded into Vera’s trailer.
He will be coming to my ranch after QT.
You saw me give ALR money. I did. For the horses they purchased that day.

I currently have 11 on my ranch, which I own. 6 are either fosters or sanctuary horses.
I have 2 out of state.
Needless to say. On my own dime.

I sure hope to see you all next week in Ontario.
Suzanne, I am still looking for 1 mostly white paint and a donkey .I found a good assortment in Billings, Montana.

Feel free to ask any questions you think are unanswered.
I really want to help you guys out here.

Sincerely,
Barbara M. Benson
Ps: I do often go by my middle name. Long story. Maybe I tell you one day

 

 

marg

The top few screen shots I pulled out of their auction attack posts for some flavor.   Obviously the pictures are of Mags in all her red-faced glory and then we have a long-winded explanation about how unbothered she is by that.  I dunno what Marg’s `fat ass’ has to do with HC and helping horses, but I also don’t really know what attacking private citizens has to do with HC either.  Doesn’t HiCaliber screech about the `haters’ stepping up?  So when one does try to do that quietly to help some horses on her own dime, they get torn apart in private forums.  Get over yourself, Village Idiots.  We’re going to need a whole bunch more people like Barbara Benson in the immediate future.  Meanwhile, buckle up because I got a LOT more to say over the next few days…BTW Mags, I know you say you don’t look like these pics anymore and that would be true.  You look worse.  You stick out like a sore thumb at Santa Anita.  Get a bigger dog to hide behind maybe? Also, I can’t speak for Jennifer Marek, but I’m the one that called you a moonface on THIS blog and I stand by that.  Your detective skills suck so much ass, Mags.  Grow up.
