I guess it’s my turn to make a post today.  I was actually enjoying handing the reins over to guest posters this past week or so.  As usual, there are a variety of things to cover, names to say and things to rehash.  It’s become distinctly unfun to sift through so much fuckery from the HiCaliber feedlot  lately.  With the overwhelming amount of information flowing in, I sometimes have to let things marinate a bit before posting.  I never quite manage to get everything down that I want, but hopefully enough to keep everybody in the loop. I tried to get everything in this post that we’ve mentioned in the comments over the last week.  Feel free to jog my memory if I’ve left something out.  You might want to settle in because things are gonna get frustrating with this post and I’m not in a great mood today.  I think it will be clear why by the end of this post.

 

Here are a few screen shots of Michelle lying to her few remaining volunteers.  As per usual, she always has an excuse for everything, they just aren’t very believable.  It also seems that Peace Love and Sage Lori Anne has dropped the new age zen act in favor of being hateful.  No word if she’s bitten the head off a guinea fowl and completed her initiation into all things Manson Family yet.

 

Let’s look at the current condition of the inmates at HiCaliber. Yes, the grey up top is poor Squirrel.  Remember some people said that it had rained so of course they were dirty?  All these pictures were taken 4 days and more after it had rained.  They are all recent with the majority of them being taken within the last 10 days.  There is no excuse for this level of filth and Manson herself mentioned having to clip the mats off Royal Gambler on live feed.  I have been riding horses since before I could walk which means longer than Manson has been infesting the earth and I have never in my life had a horse so filthy that I couldn’t knock the mud off with a brush or a hose.  That is some deeply embedded filth and neglect and from the above pictures, I guess it’s easy to see how it happens.  I can already hear the VIs howling about how they are rescue horses that come from bad backyards.  Go look up any of these horses and the length of time they have been at HiCaliber.  None of them came with that embedded filth.  Then you have Bella the one on the top right and she’s an adoption return that obviously isn’t exactly thriving at rescue either.  Still not convinced?

 

All these pictures were taken on March 26th.  That is Boone standing ankle deep in shit.  I’m not sure if he has his bizarre bandage situation happening under that filth, but we haven’t heard what his x-ray results were either and that was a few weeks ago.  The other pic on the top right is of Brady’s Kat and Lex.  They never update either of those horses.  The bottom left two are Radar and Trish.  Remember Trish?  She’s the one that was returned from adoption due to being diagnosed as neurological by a real vet and deemed unsuitable for use as a lesson horse.  Of course that was overridden by Amanduh and the 30% vet who think it’s just fine to strap small children to the saddle and use her for lessons.  From the above picture she’s losing condition too.  It would appear from today’s live video that Manson managed to get a few stalls clean to show off to the haters (more on this anon).  Show us the rest of the ranch, Manson.  I dare you!

chrome 3-26-18

Mucho Chrome 3-26-18

They don’t do so many updates on Chrome now that he isn’t looking so good.  As a result he’s been evicted out of his stall in the barn and sent down to stand in a tiny pen that is rarely cleaned as he loses weight and condition. He’s not super skinny yet, but give him another month so and I’m sure he’ll get there.  I wonder if they’d like Art Sherman to come out and see him now?  I can’t wait to hear how Maggot defends this and still show her big moon face at Clockers’ Corner.  I guess just like horsemanship, self awareness isn’t one of her long suits so the snickers and side eyes just blow right over her head anyhow.  All this because nobody wanted to spoon feed her another story and she tripped over her bloated ego.

 

I’m sure everybody is up to speed on one of the Louisiana horses dropping a surprise foal in Price arena about 10 days ago.  The mare is Tilden and was one of the healthier Louisiana horses which means it’s not really likely she saw a 100% vet for intake as Manson was pretty much doing them all by then anyhow.  However, in typical Manson fashion, nothing is ever her fault and, in the youtube video above, she throws all the vets under the bus.  The only problem with her story, is that given the fact this looks like a full term foal so unless they did an ultrasound to preg check Tilden when she first arrived, last May, anybody would have missed it, especially a 30% vet.  Yes, people make mistakes, even vets, but there seems to be too many `oops’ foals and fetuses floating around to be mistakes rather than neglect.  This mare went full term and was down in Price arena with all the other sick horses and Manson and the brainiacs the live on the ranch decided they were all too fat and put them on a diet.  Given the fact they can’t even be arsed to knock the mud off the mare after moving her to the barn, I wouldn’t be surprised if they haven’t bothered to check IgG levels on the baby or hang plasma to maybe give him a little boost and insurance against all the disease he has already been exposed to up in that barn.  Might be best not to get too attached to the little gaffer.

In my last post I shared some current pics of Braveheart who continues to lose weight.  In Manson’s world that means you ride the shit out of them apparently.  Even if he was in good weight, she is too big for this horse.  I’m not fat shaming, I’m stating a fact.  According to their website, this horse is only 14.3 H and Manson admits to being a quarter pounder.  Then you can add improperly fitting tack to the mix and it’s a recipe for a horse becoming `behavioral’.  One of the best ways to see pressure and potential sore spots is to check their saddle marks after untacking and from the screen shots above you can see where the saddle is crunching the point of the shoulder and one side of his back.  Properly fitted tack will show an even sweat pattern.  His feet also look uneven and in need of attention so I’m wondering if he’s seen a farrier since Luis quit HiCaliber.  Clearly none of the gunsels at HiCaliber, Skeletor included, are able to recognize this horse is too skinny, especially given the length of time they’ve had him.

I guess the ride a skinny horse thing is just how they roll at HiCaliber.  The above pics are Harper and yes, they are recent.  She’s also on every trail ride lately it seems and she’s either packing Manson or Wrinkles. Besides being too skinny to be working hard, her feet also need attention and while Wrinkles is considerably smaller than Manson, her tack is no less ill fitting.  I guess I shouldn’t complain because they are bitless after all and that’s the way of the future according to Manson.

Manson schools us on riding bitless in these clips as Amanduh rides around on a lame horse.  I’m not against riding bitless, but I am against ignorance and riding lame horses.  I also know I’m preaching to the choir here, but I had these clips pulled out to save the rest of you from having to sit through the entire thing.

Manson tells us all that we need to grow our skills and ride bitless as Amanduh demonstrates her `skills’ and piss poor eq.

Because she has an excuse for everything, Manson pulls one out of her ass about why they can’t put a rope halter on properly.  Manson figures it’s no biggie because the rope halter is still on bone.  I guess the nerves and pressure points on a horse’s face are not something she cares about, and feels she’s doing a `dance’ with the horses.  (it just me or does anybody else get this image  in their mind when she talks about dancing with horses?) It’s ok though, because she and Amanduh have `super soft hands’ and know what they’re doing.  That’s super obvious from the pictures above.  Manson compares her rope halters to a bosal, or at least I think that’s what she’s comparing it to.  Her bizarre pronunciation of it makes me wonder if it’s not something she invented in her mind or learned from the Google Horse Training Acadamy.  Nothing says counterfeit like not being able to pronounce standard equipment while telling people they need to increase their skill set.

You asked for it, here it is.  The auction meltdown where Wrinkles loses her absolute shit over this `blind’ horse and rants about people letting `her’ go to Misner for $25.  While Wrinkles is cursing Vera from Love This Horse and other advocates,  the `mare’ who was actually a gelding had already been purchased privately from Misner.   This caused a lot of drama with the Village Idiots and The Manson Family because first they were angry nobody bought him, but then they were angry they did it in the `parking lot’, which they did not

What actually happened with the blind horse is that yes, Vera purchased him after he’d been in the ring.  What people need to remember is that HiCaliber pays to be able to go back in the chutes.  Vera had no way of knowing what horses were coming through the sale until they were int he ring and, having a breed specific rescue, she’s primarily there for Arabians.  She saw the `blind’ horse go through and missed him for whatever reason.  Vera immediately had somebody talk to Misner and offer to buy the horse for $100.  Yes, there was a mark up on him, just like Manson pays him all the time.  The other choice was to bid against Misner and let them run the bids up way higher like they did a few weeks ago when A Little Rescue was present.  The bottom line is the horse was purchased by Vera by 11:30AM as Manson and Wrinkles were cursing and saying their village idiots would step up and save this horse.  I’m still not sure why Wrinkles was so outraged about the horse having shoes on.

The `blind’ horse turned out to actually have some vision and is in not bad shape.  The video is of him arriving at quarantine where he will have a real 100% vet assess his vision.  His name is Don Quixote and he just won the lottery as far as where his ultimate destination is.  There will be updates once he’s out of quarantine.

ontario

Jumping back to auction, Manson was trying to network a horse that was already purchased by Love This Equine.  She is stuck on people sitting on their asses and letting  a horse go to Misner for $25 while conveniently overlooking that she and Wrinkles could have privately purchased the horse as well.  She shows up at auction every week with a trailer even though she’s `not officially rescuing’ and drags horses home and continues her remote parking lot deals.  She could have very easily purchased this gelding too.  She also claimed that Misner got the rest of the horses but that wasn’t true either.  His number is 413 and he took home two after selling the gelding to Vera.  Vera was the buyer on the last horse who was an Arabian.  For somebody that preaches being a rebel and thinking outside the box, Manson sure doesn’t like it when somebody else does it.  They hypocrisy was thick!

paypal

Manson took her turn ranting about `other’ rescues and lying about the reason they are currently suspended.  I’m wondering why she doesn’t tell people why her PayPal account is still frozen because that isn’t something that usually happens when you’re just late with your 990s.  Actually, if it was as simple as a few forms, I’m pretty sure her CPA would have been all over it and they’d be up and running by now.  For comparison, and because she likes to use them as an example,  FHR missed that one form and had the situation rectified immediately without ever having a suspension.  Manson can pretend she’s on the hook for the same thing, but we know differently.  If you don’t believe me, maybe you will believe Romney Faye’s mother…

Thank you to Romney Faye’s mommy for confirming what we’ve known for awhile now.  It’s been fun to watch Manson squirm and lie about it but yes, they are under audit by the Attorney General.  The AG doesn’t just do an audit because haters made baseless claims.  They other fun part of Susie’s little rant is the `living stipend’.  That really doesn’t fit in with Manson’s previous claims of being a volunteer and not taking a dime from the rescue.  It also doesn’t fit in with Romney Faye being the only paid employee when she was CEO.  I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m also pretty sure that a living stipends aren’t retroactive meaning that they aren’t something you can claim after you get caught elbow deep in the cookie jar reaching back a number of years.  Then there are the ridiculous slaughter fables she regurgitates and we’ve only been over them a million times it seems.  If you want the specifics, you can look back a few posts where I posted the numbers and the facts about what does and doesn’t ship to slaughter.  Manson has saved nothing and, getting drug back to her feed lot to rot away in a small pen before getting shot int he face is every bit as bad as most slaughter horses face. The only difference is they don’t have to stand around as long as some of the inmates at HiCaliber do.  At least now we know where Romney Faye learned how to twist the truth and manipulate people.  How tellign that somebody her age needs her mommny to come charging to her rescue as she attempts to slither away and leave her good buddy Manson holding the bag.

Since Wrinkles had to pull her ridiculous rant down as soon as they realized they looked like dicks, or at least bigger ones than usual,  Manson manifested some blind ponies!  She couldn’t save the `blind’ horse in the ring but she’s all over the ponies from her regular flipper connection. I guess I’m not supposed to recognize the white double trailer pulled by a red truck that they came in or something.  Anyhow, the poor little souls were drug back to the HiCaliber shit pit where Manson had what appeared to be a prearranged rant on live feed.

manure

While she was `networking’ the ponies,that ended up going to Jen Baker, this comment popped up on the feed, followed by a long pause by Manson before she kicked off into one of her rants. The first red flag was that she didn’t screech to get him banned or tell him to EAD.   She sounded angry enough as she trudged over to training to show off her less filthy stalls, which was likely the whole point of Doug’s comment.  What she wasn’t expecting was for the village idiots to attack him like they did.  Doug is the one that helped with Snuggles, has Trently and has done Manson quite a few favors.  Why do I think it was a set up?

marineworkcrewshit

On her Wednesday live feed, Manson briefly mentioned the marines had been out to volunteer at the ranch for a few days.  What they  mostly did other than put up a few shelters, was shovel up a whole bunch of shit including the area she showed off in her rant.  If you noticed in the video clip, she walks right by Mucho Chrome showing off the `clean’ stalls but the picture earlier in this post showed the condition of his stall before the marines were there.  They also seemed to be cleaning the stalls belonging to Amanduh and Skeletor’s personal horses.  Anyhow, that’s why we saw a clean stall on the live feed and why Manson likely arranged to have that rant.  Nothing is every quite what it seems with her.

This brings us to the part of writing these posts that I hate; listing the horses that did not land softly and make it out of HiCaliber alive.  I’m not listing them in any sort of order this week other than these are the ones that went to the killing field since my last post.  First up is Emerson.  She was looking quite healthy just a few months ago in her update video that they did.  The meme is what she looked like just before taking a tarp nap.  It appears nobody even took the time to clean up her face for her or vicks her nose, so I’m pretty sure they didn’t hot pack her abscesses and try to actually help her get better.  She deserved so much more.  RIP Emerson.  #sayhername

 

poseidon

Poseidon also went to the blue tarp recently.  He was originally a purchase from Misner a few months ago along with two other horses.  There was quite a lot of lies surrounding the three horses which you can refresh your memory about here.  If you remember our guest poster mentioned that Poseidon’s original date with the tarp was the day JacksonMax and Beatrice were executed but Manson didn’t feel like killing any more that day so he got to wait around for another few days until they had enough others to get their discount from the meat wagon guy.  It’s good to know that a horse that is deemed too uncomfortable to rehab is allowed to stand around several extra days to fit into Manson’s schedule or maybe it was Amanduh’s.  She is now making up the euth lists and taking turns shooting horse in the face.  I also am not sure who it was that diagnosed Poseidon with bladder cancer, but I’m reasonably sure Manson didn’t spring for the diagnostics to confirm that.  RIP Poseidon.  #sayhisname

LeDoux also was shot in the face recently.  I don’t actually even know what the official reason is.  I guess we can attribute it to whatever bullshit diagnosis Manson pulled out of her ass that day.  He didn’t last very long with HiCaliber and, again, not sure he ever saw a real vet.  RIP LeDoux.  #sayhisname

Cait is also gone.  I’m not sure what her crime was either other than her age.  Nobody ever really asked after her and she was just one of those horses it’s easy to make disappear.   The high profiles ones they can milk a few extra dollars get the tearful group photo with the carcass and live feeds while horses like Cait just get blasted in the face without skipping a beat.  RIP Cait.  #sayhername

Happy Prayer is also no longer with us.  To be honest, I didn’t realize that he had fallen into the clutches of HiCaliber given the shell game going on the day he was in the Ontario parking lot.  Apparently, his former owners never did make contact or get him out.  I’m not really sure what to believe because he had bounced around quite a bit before having the misfortune of going back to HiCaliber.

This is where Happy Prayer was living right before he ended up at HiCaliber.  They got him in a parking lot deal from either Jose or Marco.  They are brothers and usually together so take your pic, although I want to think it was Jose for some reason.  These pictures were taken at Jose’s place and do you know what’s sad about them?  The conditions he was living in there, as ghetto as they were, were actually better than where he finished his days at HiCaliber.  I have no idea why this horse was killed.  RIP Happy Prayer.  #sayhisname

As recently as a few weeks ago Micah was being used by Amanduh for lessons despite being lame and listed as a `puff only’ on their web page.  He had clearly lost weight and condition since he arrived at HiCaliber in November even though they said he was only 8 years old.  There has been no official explanation for why he is dead, but his death brought the total up to 36 dead horses this year and we’re not even 14 weeks in.  RIP Micah.  #sayhisname

I think this is where I’ll leave things for today.  I’m sorry I’ve been slow with my own posts lately.  Rest assured that the information river still flows strongly, I just feel that the guest posts should be the priority when they come in.  I want to thank all the readers here for being supportive to our guest posters and continuing to keep the comment section awesome.  I do want to remind people to not get discouraged and think all is lost if HiCaliber is back fund-raising in the coming weeks.  We expect that and it doesn’t mean they are `cleared’ even though you can fully expect that Manson will be all over live feed making up for lost time and income and claiming they are.  If they are cleared, we’ll know it from other sources.  If you’re confused or wondering WTF is going on with that, just drop a question in comments and hopefully somebody will have the answers.  Who knows?  It might even be me.

I have to apologize in advance for yet another really long post.  I’ve got a bunch of things to share today and a lot of them have clips.   Those of you on mobile phones just click on them and they should play.  With the increased media interest in all things HiCaliber, the instinct has been to keep things a bit closer to the vest in order to preserve their integrity in ongoing complaints and investigations.  However,  things have gotten this far because of many voices coming together, so people deserve to be kept in the loop as much as is appropriate.  Even though it’s Monday this post is probably best digested with an adult beverage or three.  It’s 5 O’clock somewhere!  Hopefully, I can present all of this in a somewhat palatable way.  Even I’m confused by some of it, but I’m pretty sure that is by design and not happenstance.  Somebody please kick me if I ever get this far behind again!

Braveheart in Salvador’s trailer January/2018

Let’s kick off with the Braveheart drama.  About a week ago there was a post made on HiCaliber Horror Story that showed concern for the condition of Braveheart based on a picture that had been posted.  It was followed up with a denial from HiCaliber, complete with a strategically posed and cropped picture of him that was supposed to show he was in great shape.  For starters, the picture that Alex posted was not his intake picture or what he looked like when he got to HiCaliber.  The above pic in the trailer is what he looked like and he was not that skinny.  Also, if you notice the HiCaliber picture, it does show ribs and his spine protruding and it was originally posted on February 25th.  Manson just cropped herself and Merrily out of the pic.  Still not convinced?

All these picture were taken on March 10th and posted in one of HiCaliber’s secret groups.  They knew damn well that Alex was telling the truth and deliberately lied to their village to cover up the fact this horse has lost an astonishing amount of weight in the past few months.  He is not thriving.  The only thing we have seen of him is his ears as he hauls Manson around on trail rides or maybe catch a glimpse of him tacked up so you can’t see his spine.  There is no denying that this horse is much thinner than when they bought him.  A `hater’ did not sneak on their property to take these pictures of him either and the only mistake Alex made was that he came from Salvador and not Nacho.

THESE are what hater pics look like since were on the subject.  This was from March 9th clearly showing the filth and crowding.  Just so we’re clear and all…

I’m sure most of you reading this post feel sorry for this volunteer.  She seems to want peace, love and happy horses.  I’m not sure the wisdom behind smudging with all those fire hazards around, but there has been rain so there is that.  Sadly,  just like Manson, this volunteer seems to be able to flip the switch between spiritual and just plain nasty.

So much for peace, love and sage, huh?  Let’s not forget these ladies were their friends.  You can not like what they did (personally, I love what they did), but some of this stuff seems a bit below the belt.  In fact, much further below the belt than I ever thought of going.  However, at least two seem to have a flicker of common sense and realizing that these people that were `reasonable’ and `not malicious’ are likely telling the truth.  Not smudging Lori though, she’s gonna keep things low.

As per usual, nothing is ever Manson’s fault.  You will note she says they have only had two positive cultures within the last year.  That is what you would call a lie of omission because she most certainly didn’t culture each and every sick horse.  In fact, she doesn’t even mention how many horses were cultured.  Two out of two is 100%, just sayin…

Last fall, a company came out to HiCaliber to film some spots for their rice bran product.  I remember this because it was sold to the village as a special visitor coming and a major working bee ensued.  It was pretty awesome deal for HiCaliber as the company left them 7 pallets of their product.  Rice bran is one thing that really good at putting weight on horses without making them hot.  It’s especially good for seniors and metabolic types.  I’d think that would be just the sort of thing a rescue would need.  However, just a few short months later they were begging for more during the Del Mar fiasco.

Flash forward to the present and there sits much of the rice bran right where the company left it.  Much of it is spoiled.  For over six months, as they begged for money for feed numerous times, they walked right past pallets of rotting feed nobody could get off their ass and move.  The second pic is the little bit that was able to be saved as they finally decided now might be a good time to move it into the feed room.

I’m sure most of you have seen the live feed where Manson addressed the recent media reports of her sketchy financial records.  She adamantly denied that she had ever used the donor funds for personal gain when she was interviewed by inewsource earlier.  Naturally, she had an excuse for everything and attempted to throw other people under the bus in her live feed.  The problem is that she’s pulling things out of her ass yet again.  The financials were not from the people she’s blaming and, contrary to her excuses, nobody broke in and stole anything.  I’m pretty sure the auditors won’t buy that excuse either because it’s about on par with the dog ate my homework.  The reason these Paypal records are available at all is that they don’t have to phone Manson up and ask her permission to view her them.  They would subpoena them directly from Paypal and for whatever reason they became available through a public records request. There is a reason her Paypal accounts are frozen and it’s not because a hater phoned up Paypal and made something up.  That order likely came down from the AG or one of the other investigating agencies.  Anyhow, back to Weight Watchers and Manson’s claim of reimbursing the rescue.  She shows one time that she might have and the dates were conveniently chopped out.

ww1

Do you know what else her excuse doesn’t cover?  The fact that she used HiCaliber’s account for 4 consecutive months to pay for her Weight Watchers.  She says it was only one time and she `forgot her card’ but it was an online payment and how do you forget your card when paying online?  How do you conveniently make the same mistake 4 months in a row?  She sure does seem to forget her debit card a whole bunch when I looked at the rest of the financials.

Here’s a whole bunch of other times she must have `forgot her card’.  School fees, Google Play, Del Taco, Starbucks, bar tabs, etc,etc.  If you watched her live feed, you’ll recall she spoke at great length about appreciating her volunteers and buying them meals.  You tell me how many volunteers she’s appreciating for a $2.95 Starbucks tab or $6.46 at Del Taco.  How is it a business expense to pay a dog trainer?  What you won’t find is payments for lashes or nails on these records.  I’m sure those are cash transactions anyhow and there are a whole bunch of cash withdrawals from various locations, often with more than one within minutes of another.

attorney

This was another fee that stood out for me.  It’s a payment to Manson’s divorce attorney.  The same attorney that is said to have a her personal horse living at HiCaliber for several years for free.

spyware5

spyware4

Then you have the whole spyware lie Manson told on live feed.  If you recall, she said it was to spy on haters and she installed it on her own laptop to see if her records were being stolen.  That was a lie.  She actually installed the spyware on her ex’s phone to see if he was cheating on her. There is a screen shot of the volunteer that installed it saying as much and the other screen shots are the transcripts from the spyware on his phone.  I apologize they aren’t very clear.  You should still be able to see that it’s not a business conversation she was spying on.  Again, how is this a legitimate business expense or even legal?  Turns out it would be considered wiretapping and could result in jail time and/or fines.  Given the dates on these PayPal records and transcripts, the statute of limitations hasn’t even run out on that yet and it would apply whether she was spying on her ex or a former board member.  You can read about it here.  It’s laid out pretty clear and now we have Manson right on video admitting she did it, if not being truthful about who she did it to and why.  Don’t worry, videos are saved.

pug1

The other day, Manson shared a rather disturbing video of her child trying to `milk’ their Pug.  She claims the dog isn’t pregnant and had a false pregnancy or something.  The dog was clearly uncomfortable and Manson’s child giggled and squeezed her nipples harder until something came out.  Like I said, it was disturbing and for that reason I won’t be posting it.  Manson likes to overshare her child’s problems on social media and claim she gets bullied and then she posts things like this for all to see.  Thankfully, it did not stay up long as even her village idiots were mostly not all that amused by it.  However, speaking of the Pug and all things financial…

pug6.jpg

I wonder if Manson happened to forget her card the day she bought a $1600 dog?  Aside from the obvious issue with somebody in rescue going to a breeder and paying that much for a dog, it appears the rescue got to buy the dog . That’s a helluva `oops’ with using the wrong card.  Thanks Village!

Last Tuesday, many of us were interested to see how auction was going to be handled with a temporary suspension of Manson’s ability to openly beg and grift for money.  We knew there was no way she’d miss auction and the fact that she showed up with her horse trailer pretty much guaranteed she wasn’t going home empty.  The village idiots were appropriately and dramatically outraged before the horses were even in the ring.  Manson primed them even further with a pair of dramatic posts including the buzzwords she knew would stir up plenty of emotion and a sense of urgency.  Bonded pairs!  Melanomas!  Youngsters!  Thankfully, some of our stealth mole was around so we have somewhat of an idea of what really went down.  As we know, Manson stood in the chutes bemoaning about all the horses going to flipper and trippers until she heard that there was another rescue there and rapidly changed her story to one of whining about sustainability and how irresponsible it was for them to create this market because the way she does it keeps prices low.  In other words, the usual suspects may not be so eager to take her chump change in the parking lot if they think running them through the ring will pay better. What confused me is that Manson is always ranting about other rescues not stepping up and what would happen to the horses without them and yet when a rescue does step up, she whines about that too.  As far as sustainability goes, I’m pretty sure that won’t be an issue.  A Little Rescue is run by Brandi Perse.  Their property used to belong to Ellen DeGeneres.  I would like them to rescue me.  The other thing is that A Little Rescue came in and did this without drama or taking shots at anybody.  They were there to save some horses and that’s exactly what they did.

dead goat outside ontario

What Manson did not show her village idiots was the dead animals she stepped over on her way to whine in the chutes.  Since she has yet to figure out a way to do parking lot deals for other livestock, it didn’t really suit her narrative to highlight the plight of other animals at this cesspool of an auction.  There was also at least one other dead animal in the pens as well.

 

Thanks to our stealth moles, some of Manson’s stories can be busted up.  Yes, the mare that had recently become separated from her foal was brought by Salvador. She came with the fleabitten gray Arab stallion that ended up with Love This Horse Rescue.  Thank you to them for stepping up as well.  I’m sure by now that everybody has heard all the conspiracy theories about this mare and who her foal might have been.  Without DNA that’s all they are is theories. However we know for a fact this mare was bagged up and producing milk.  We know that a week previously HiCaliber came into possession of an `orphan’ filly that was barely a day old and that filly possibly came from Salvador as he was at auction that day with his trailer but did not run horses through the ring.  We’ll talk more about babies and mares in a bit though.  Let’s talk about some other things that maybe not everybody knows about last Tuesday.

private buyer

After the sale horses had run through the ring, HiCaliber briefly posted about this horse and said they were looking for a private buyer and needed $700 for him.  He was very foot sore and was offered to nobody else.  The ad was also pulled down right away and the horse not mentioned again.

Nacho was also at auction last week.  I’m not sure which horses he brought or if it was just a goat day for him.  All these guys have Manson and Romney Faye’s number so they would have been aware that things would be going down a bit differently this week.

So after auction, this trailer belonging to another regular flipper named Jose showed up after Manson had left.  He did have horses in his trailer. He and his brother Marco are becoming regulars in the HiCaliber parking lot scams.  In this video taken by one of our stealth moles, he denies knowing Manson or HiCaliber.   He also mentions to his kid that they are being filmed and that he wants to get out of there but will be back next week and arrive earlier. I find that super interesting that he denied knowing Manson considering he has a very distinguishable trailer and has sold them horses before.  Don’t believe me?

It seems Jose is as unfamiliar with the truth as Manson is.  In fact, he’s done lots of business with her in recent months.  He sold her Gigi,  Roxanne likely came from him as well as Penelope among others.  He was also present in the parking lot the day the police paid them all a visit at Stater Bros.  Speaking of that, I guess now is as good a time as any to try to explain that to try to make sense out of that for everybody.

Jose’s horse already in the HiCaliber trailer upon arriving at Stater Bros Parking lot. Jose followed them to the lot with an empty trailer.

So back on February 13th, our stealth mole followed Jose to the Stater Bros parking lot.  His trailer was empty that day, but it’s also the same day he brought Roxanne to auction and she ended up going home with Manson.  Jose wasn’t the only flipper that met them there.

File # from the parking lot visit

Just to be clear, neither of the voices on the above video are mine.  They are stealth mole and let’s just say a `contact’.  We were kind of back and forth about showing this, but since there has been all this talk about the police maybe only being there because of a fender bender we felt it best to show why they were there.  They were there because selling horses in a parking lot is illegal.  The pictures show Manson with the horse that had come out of Salvador’s trailer earlier in the day (believed to be Chino), taking his pictures and getting ready to beg for money just before the police rolled up.  Regardless of what Manson claims about how `friendly’ it all was, it is illegal and it hasn’t gone unnoticed that she has gone to even greater lengths to hide her deals since this day including dragging the animals to a dirt road to film her tear jerking videos.

When the police rolled up, there was Jose, Pet Matchmaker, `Jason’ the hauler and Nacho all in the parking lot with Jose and Nacho’s trailers being empty.  The police seemed mostly interested in HiCaliber but for whatever reason, the flippers scattered like the vermin they are.

As I have mentioned before, Nacho nearly had smoke on his heels he ran to his truck so fast, jumped in and got the hell out of dodge.  Sadly, we only have still photos and no video because stealth mole kinda had her hands full at the time.  I don’t recall which horse on the trailer was his, but if you recall, Nacho was the one responsible for Galle back in January.  You can refresh your memory on the horrific condition she was in here. Nacho was also the one behind Mas, Magnum and so many others.  Now that we’re all up to speed on the parking lot bust back in February, let’s jump back to last week and what happened after auction.

Despite Manson not being able to raise funds last week and the fact that all the horses that were sold through the ring were purchased by other rescues, Manson just couldn’t help herself.  Unable to bitch that nobody else stepped up, she still managed to collect a full trailer of equines to drag back to the ranch.  I know it’s hard to believe what Manson claims, especially when she’s trying to point fingers in other directions, but this time it appears to be true.

At some point well after auction, Manson rolled up to Wells Fargo with a full trailer.  None of these animals have been introduced to the village idiots yet or even had their presence acknowledged which might make them easier to disappear.  We know that Jose had a trailer full of horses after auction that he refused to sell to anybody that asked and the lame black private buyer horse they posted about ended up somewhere too.  Manson likes to accuse people of not stepping up but how can they when they flippers are lying to them?  Now that we have it out in the open that these horses exist, let’s see how long it takes Manson to come clean or what lies she spins to explain them.

madre

 

twoweeks

Actually she had barely been with them a week but who’s counting?

Once A Little Rescue had the bagged up mare, now named Madre, checked over by the vet and confirmed that she had recently lost a foal, they reached out to HiCaliber to offer to purchase Emlyn.  They were promptly told `no’ because the `private buyer’ wanted to keep her.  Of course we know the `private buyer’ is likely fictitious and will probably donate the filly to HiCaliber once they are able to accept donations.  What human, let alone a rescue,  would deny a filly a mother?  Too young to be disrupted?  Really?  Because hauling her back in a trailer with pigs and strange horses and then throwing her in a stall with in a strange place and not allowing her a bottle isn’t disruptive at all.

Speaking of the refusal to give this filly a bottle, here is Amanduh trying to get her to drink out of a bucket.  Sound is off because of the child in the video and her mother saying her name.  One of their recent excuses for not bottle feeding this filly is the claim that she may aspirate if she drinks with her nose above her body or something.  I can’t recall the exact wording because it was so ludicrous.  Look at any foal nursing from their mama and, last time I checked, their teats aren’t attached to their hocks.  They have to reach up to nurse.  It’s also probably a lot cleaner than Amanduh’s filthy paws swishing around in her dirty bucket.  This poor little filly.  By all reports there isn’t the same sign up and interest to sit around the clock with her that Magnum had.

While we’re on the subject of little Emlyn, here is a nice lie Amanduh told and no, I’m not referring to the private buyer one.  The fact that she claims that this foal was saved from the slaughter pipeline was just crazy.  Even IF she wasn’t Madre’s baby, this filly was not in the`pipeline’  They do not ship horses under six months of age to slaughter.

pipeline

There are the guidelines from the USDA for horses shipping to slaughter.  As you can also see, that the majority of horses that Manson gets from Salvador, Nacho, Misner and the others are not horses that would ship to slaughter.  That isn’t ‘saying they aren’t horses that need some help from a legitimate rescue, key word being `legitimate’.  Now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s clear up another myth Manson uses to create a sense of urgency and get people to dig deep.

slaughterstats

vislaughter

If you listened to Manson and forgot that shipping horses for the purposes of slaughter is illegal in California, you would think that the number of horses going to slaughter is on the rise.  Nothing could be further from the truth whether you are talking about Canada or Mexico.  The numbers have steadily decreased each year.  That might be useful to point out to Manson’s pro slaughter vet as well.  Don’t even get me started with the village idiots.  I guess this is what happens when Manson is your personal Wikipedia for all things equine.  They really need to learn to broaden their horizons and aim higher. We still have a long ways to go in order to remove the threat of slaughter, but we are making headway and the last thing we need is Manson and her village idiots running around telling lies.

I wonder if the village idiots have noticed how few actual update posts they get now that Manson can’t beg money for awhile.  Rather than use this time to make quality adoption videos or even update on any one of the 170 plus horses warehoused on their feedlot, she has turtled.  Because of this, I thought I’d update people on Magnum. You hear Manson mention how fat he is getting when, in fact, he is sporting that bloated belly with no actual weight on his ass or shoulders. Likely it’s from the fact that they only feed him hay and he’s never received proper supplements or he’s full or worms.  Probably both.  From the looks of any super young baby that has actually survived at HiCaliber, they have no idea how to feed one and they all end up with this sad physique.  He’s also being subjected to Amanduh’s version of halter training which seems to be designed to ensure he’s as rude as possible the bigger he gets as she allows him to either drag behind or wander out in front at full shank length.

amanduh tack.jpg

Even though HiCaliber cannot openly beg for money and disperse assets, Amanduh’s for profit `business’ using HiCaliber horses, equipment and facilities continues unabated.  For the minor fee of just $40 you too can learn how to crunch the shit out of a horse’s withers, tie a rope halter wrong and strap a child to the saddle.  Awesome!  And if that wasn’t enough for people, this past weekend she taught a groundwork class for the same fee.  The horse she used was poor Shasta who had once upon a time been a private buy, only to be returned to the ranch not so long ago.  She’s also kinda lame in this video.  I’m not even sure WTF is going on here other than a lame horse being lunged on way too short of a line in the mud as she slips, slides and tries to stay upright as Amanduh shouts instructions from off camera.  This level of ignorance is bad enough but the fact that she is inflicting it on rescue animals and teaching it to other neophyte horse people should be criminal.  Amanduh needs to stick to the horses that only eat quarters outside of WalMart.

 

Now we come to the part of these posts I absolutely hate.  Saying names.  I have to admit I fell behind and I feel terrible about it.  It gets overwhelming at the clip Manson is killing these past few months.  Still, these horses deserve to be remembered and honored.  Our first up is Andrina.  She was but a blip on the village idiot radar as she was killed almost immediately.  She was sore and appeared uncomfortable but I’m not sure she ever had real diagnostics done by a real vet.  I wish I had more information about her to share.  RIP. Andrina.  #sayhername

Despite the dramatic back story she came with, Little Bear was from one of the usual suspects HiCaliber deals with.  I’m not anti-euthanasia and I can see this mare probably needed a release.  I’m against exploitation and increasing her suffering which is what happened to Little Bear.  As Manson pontificated about knowing better and doing better, she also basically said she wouldn’t help this mare until funds were raised for diagnostics.  Does anybody think this horse saw a vet?  Any real rescue that saw this horse would get her help one way or another and not say, `only if we raise the funds, including the responsible rescue fees she will never use because we’re going to shoot her as soon as we get her home’.  I’m not even going to get into the whole issue with the black pony in the picture with her showing up at auction that week and ending up at Baker Ranch.  RIP Little Bear.  #sayhername

sahara

I do not have a lot of information on Sahara or her death either.  It has been confirmed she was recently killed but no details as to why.  The fact she was relinquished almost exactly a year ago suggest that her time might have expired.  RIP Sahara.  #sayhername

Callie also passed without a mention recently.  Purchased in the parking lot back in early December, she was deemed to be `remarkably sound’ in her intake video.  That was basically the last mention there ever was of her before she left this earth.  I wish I could say why or how.  RIP Callie.  #sayhername

Ruby Rose was one of the more upsetting cases lately.  Even though Manson had said she was `neuro’ it appeared there was more to it than that.  If anything she reminded me of a horse that had a head injury and it was upsetting to see them load this horse in a trailer to drag her all the way back to the ranch.  Not surprisingly she went down in the trailer on the way back and was promptly shot in the head upon arrival.  For all we know, her death may have triggered at least one or two others as Manson usually kills in pairs at the very least.  At least Manson didn’t blame her death on haters even though she claimed Ruby Rose was having seizures.  RIP Ruby Rose.  #sayhername

Freedom was bought on March 5th.  He appeared to have a blown suspensory among other issues and was not really able to bear weight on his injured limb.  Manson mostly just referred to him as `the compassion’ pull as she made her tearful live feed at auction.  This was shortly after the media shit storm had blown up so it was all very sad.  What made me sad is the thought of this poor horse being rattled in a trailer the two plus hours back to Valley Center to meet his fate.  What was actually in store for Freedom was so much worse than usual.  Instead of being released from his suffering, Manson let him live until the reporter from the San Diego Union-Tribune came out to interview her.  For whatever reason, he decided to simplify the problem adovocates have with HiCaliber and make it all about her euthanasia methods.  As a result,  Manson treated him to a little show on shooting a horse in the face with Freedom being the star.  There was a dramatic picture of him laying on his side.  The reporter waxed poetic about Freedom’s death march to the killing field, making sure to mention that they had to pause to shoot him up with `morphine’ so he could complete his journey.  Then, Manson put on a great show of being sad and telling the horse she loved him before shooting him in the face.  With that, Freedom had officially `earned his keep’ as an ambassador for taking a bullet to the brain.  The reported didn’t mention where he came from and why people were allowed to abuse horses like that while Manson protects and covers for them.  Instead he just allowed her to spew her propaganda without ever once asking a tough question.  Ironically, this article came out shortly after Manson made the post about giving all the reporters hand jobs.  RIP Freedom.  #sayhisname

I’m sure by now, most of you have heard about the death of Blaze aka Blazing Idle.  It was only on February 19th that Manson put up a placement post for her.  She was dead shortly after that and that’s where it all gets a bit murky.  We’ve all read about her former owner showing up to see her and being rather rudely and roughly treated by Amanduh while Manson hid in her house.  The owners gave HiCaliber $1000 when they relinquished her.  I’ve seen some people comment that that wouldn’t have paid for her upkeep for long and it was understandable that Manson shot her.  Why is it that this owner had to pay $1000 to relinquish his horse but Manson will repeatedly pay people like Nacho and Salvador money to purchase their completely mutilated and mangled horses?  Blaze was said to have gained weight and looked great at foster before being returned to the ranch and placed in south herd which ended up on hard QT, whatever that means.  I’ve attached a post from her former foster mentioning about the quarantine and where Blaze had been moved to.  How Manson treated her former owner, including attempt to throw him under the bus saying he only wanted her back to breed is beyond reprehensible.  Even if that was true, is shooting her in the head better?  I really don’t think so.  RIP Blazing Idle.  #sayhername

While we’re on the subject of mysterious reasons to kill a horse, these are all the times in the last year that Manson has claimed to have done a necropsy on various horses.  In most cases she promises to keep people posted and updated once they get the results.  I cannot recall her ever posting a necropsy result on a single one of these horses.  Don’t forget it wasn’t that long ago she admitted she had only actually ever had one horse necropsied and that was awhile ago.

jc

In lieu of promised updates on requested horses, Manson decided to finally post what passes for proof that Johnny Cade was actually cremated.  This probably came about because people were mentioning they never got the hoof prints they paid for and there has always been some question whether or not he was actually cremated.  Well, now we know there is a box with his name on it.  I wonder where the rest of him is.  I’ve had a horse cremated and there are a LOT of ashes involved.  Much more than the box that Manson displayed.  My horse had a very beautiful urn with a memorial plaque, and then the remainder of his ashes were in a cloth bag in a tote and were quite heavy.  Even as emaciated as Johnny Cade was, there should be more left over than that small box.  Given the other screen shots up above and Manson clearly displaying how little she values any animal, especially after dying, it wouldn’t be surprising if the additional ashes from Johnny Cade weren’t tossed in the manure pile.  Then there is Manson saying to tractor a hole and I have to wonder how many unmarked graves are on that place. Creepy.

loosehorse

Here are a few recent posts about horses running  loose at the ranch due to their shitty fences.  The one post even mentions the escapees taking a tour through the QT area.  That’s not even mentioning that at any given time they have studs waiting to be gelded or cryptorchids standing around who are also more than capable of getting a mare in foal.  There have been a few `oops’ babies in the past there that the math didn’t quite work out for it to have happened anywhere other than since the mares got to HiCaliber. I believe Renley was one of them.

done

I thought this was an interesting post for a number of reasons not the least of which is the admission of strangles.  Regardless of when she made this post, remember it was only recently that she said she had only ever had two horses test positive for strangles.  I did block out the child exploitation part because even though Manson chooses to air her children’s personal issues all over social media, I don’t have to enable that.

As I was looking up a few things, I came across this post Manson made in 2014.  It’s a pretty cool find as it shows how much of a complete 180 she’s done since moving to the new location.  I wonder what the 2014 version of Manson would have to say to today’s incarnation.  Not the least of which is that many of  the things she attempts to discredit her detractors for are evident on this post; taking the word of former staff and owners, going by photographic evidence, telling people to be the eyes, ears and voice for the horses.  All things she now claims have no validity.  Then her promise that as a responsible rescue she is going to expose abuses and those people that support those `horrific conditions’ is just the icing on the hypocrite cake.

liar I think that’s pretty much all I have for today.  It’s certainly not all I have sitting on my desk, but probably enough to wrap your minds around for now.  I have to admit I feel frustrated.  We’ve made our submission, things are rolling and really we should be able to coast a bit for now.  Instead, Manson and her merry band of accomplices seem to be intent on digging their holes deeper.  I personally believe things have gone long past the point of no return as far as Manson and the current board of directors and ranch residents goes, and I wonder why she continues to lie and hoard animals.  It’s abundantly clear we’re onto her.  She’s like the worst liar ever because she won’t commit to one version of events.  Couple that with her verbal diarrhea and malignant personality and she gives us all so much to work with and still she figures she can outshift an army of advocates.  One of her favorite whines lately is to say that she doesn’t think we, meaning the haters, meant for things to get this far.  She’s wrong. This is exactly how far we meant for things to get and even further.  We will not stand for her continued abuse and exploitation of vulnerable animals.  We will no longer remain silent as she flaunts her hoarding and grifting in our faces.  We will not look the other way as she protects, enables and covers for the very people that are abusing and mangling horses and, most importantly, we will be the voice for those animals and not allow them to be erased off the face of this earth.  Welcome to the new world order Manson.  It’s just about time for you to sing.

I have to admit I was reluctant to make another post so soon for more than one reason.  I’m worried that it may become habit-forming and also, the amount of stupid I see going on over on Facebook is, quite frankly, irritating me.  I don’t really engage over there, but since there are a few people operating under the assumption that I write this blog so that they can fuel some Facebook drama it kinda drags me through it and I don’t like it.  I especially don’t like it when they misconstrue everything and rather than just ask the people who can answer, they go off on some tangent to crazy town making everybody look nuts. This isn’t a game.  Having said that, the people who comment on this blog and email me regularly have been awesome, so for them I have a special treat today.  Let’s hope it doesn’t result in any additional crazy in other places.  It’s a lot to take in so I’m going to ease everybody into things and start with some current events and news before we get into the `meat’ of things.  This might require more than one drink because it’s a big read depending on how ambitious you are.

nurseryfence

This was taken in the`nursery’ within the past week.  I don’t even know what to say.  This isn’t the result of one wreck or bad event, this is the result of not keeping on top of things and not giving a shit.  It’s also a recipe for a catastrophic injury.

 

 

Cozzy was bought by HiCaliber about two weeks ago at auction.  They described her as `terrified’ and said she was a 12 year old Standardbred.  This was at the same time they acquired poor Waco and a major shell game with the responsible rescue fees ensued.  Cozzy was brought back to the ranch, but then in the intake video (above) they said she was  immediately adopted out to a `previous adopter’.  Robyn describes it as an amazing place that can do quarantine.  The only problem with all that is this person admits he has zero horse experience.  What he adopted from HiCaliber in the past was a calf and two pot bellied pigs.  Also, this mare is said to be quite flighty.  As shown in the pics she is still dragging a rope halter around two weeks later and appears to have lost some weight.  They basically dumped this mare with a green owner with no support.  How’s that for vetting a home?  I don’t blame this person at all.  At least he’s reaching out beyond HiCaliber for some help and I truly hope he gets some good help.  His intentions seem good, but again, this is not rescue.  They flipped a horse.

 

 

Then this happened on Sunday.  I think most people have seen it by now but we’ll throw it up here for documentation anyhow.  The horses in question are Courney, who was purchased by HiCaliber back in October, and Promise, who was the costar of the infamous Manson running at auction video back in early December that reminded many of us of The Blair Witch Project.  Both horses have been with HiCaliber more than long enough to have gained weight and look better.  They are both messes. Manson went on a live feed rant on Monday about how it wasn’t an abscess on Promise’s shoulder but was a wound that had been sutured that had come open during the trailer ride.  Umm, no shaving signs or anything else and it’s not they type of wound that you would suture, but as usual nothing is EVER Manson’s fault.  I doubt either horse have ever seen a brush or even much handling in the entire time they were at HiCaliber.  I don’t really have that much else to say other than we’re going to see a whole bunch more of crap like this in the coming weeks as Manson scrambles to get her numbers down as she continues to buy even more.  I’m not exactly sure how any of this is rescue when both horses look worse than when she bought them.  Horses aren’t supposed to fail to thrive at rescue or get beat up and left with festering wounds.  That’s supposed to be the situation you rescue them FROM.

 

 

This brings us to Coyotegate.  I know most people have heard about Barrett getting `attacked’ by coyotes and various and increasingly dramatic versions of that story over the past few days.  It wasn’t that long ago that Manson had wrinkles popping off rounds to `scare’ them away while Engineer was in the arena.  As you can see in the screenshots above,  Manson and Wrinkles aren’t the only ones that get off on shooting things and it would appear a hunting party is being organized including somebody that wants to bow hunt.  Why kill with a clean shot when you can mortally wound an animal and have it suffer for a bit and crawl off to die?  This brings us to the blood pic on the last post.  I guess we need to clarify things.blood1

 

 

I have heard all kinds of stupid about this picture and speculation.  Naturally the village idiots are in denial, but as you can see, Manson confirms it is exactly what I said it was.  This is a blown up version of the one I had posted before with labels so we can be clear that no, there were no bodies under the tarps. They had been removed already.  However, what is extremely disturbing about this picture for me is the manure pile on top of the blood. We know that Jackson Max and Beatrice were the horses killed that day but not the order of the kills.  Obviously the second horse to be killed stood beside the body of the first and in a pool of blood while waiting to die.  One of the things that makes slaughter inhumane is that horses smell blood and feel fear.  Now, consider that there is usually far less blood on a kill floor than is shown in this pic and that a horse about to die stood in it.  The only thing different about going to slaughter for these poor souls is their bodies usually go to landfill rather than a dinner table or render.  Jackson Max was sick when he died and Beatrice had only just arrived. The were hardly surrounded and comforted by familiar people.  They were straight up executed and then, at least one of them was cut open for `science’ and harvesting by the looks of things.  This is NOT rescue

 

 

This brings us to the special treat part of this post.  I think most of us are all too familiar with Manson coming on live feed after one of her multiple visits from various agencies saying that they found nothing and she’s made `friends’ with them all.  It’s no secret that the LA SPCA was brought in due to a conflict of interest with their local agency.  They had a site visit on January 3, 2018 and, as luck would have it, Dr. Talbot was there that day as well as Manson and Wrinkles.  Because officers carry recording devices, we have a transcript of the entire visit in glorious detail, including one of Manson’s classic rants.  So, I’m going to highlight some of the more fun parts for you here and leave you with a link if you feel like reading all 80 pages later.  Just for reference, Dr. T is Dr. Talbot and Dr. S is one of the investigators along with Cpt. Cesar Perea.  Later in the transcripts `female’ is Wrinkles.

The visit starts with Dr. Talbot.  I’m truly not impressed.  He seems to believe Manson’s story that these horses are all slaughter bound and not aware that shipping horses for the purpose of slaughter is illegal in the state of California.  Also, the kinds of horses Manson is picking up from her flipper buddies aren’t the kinds of horses anybody makes money on shipping to slaughter anyhow.  He does offer up xrays and claims that he sees every horse, but there also seemed to be a lot of stammering and stuttering going on.

 

 

There you have it, folks.  Manson overrules the vet straight from his own mouth.  He goes on to talk about the local `culture’ and how there isn’t a home for a 25 year old lame horse etc.  He’s basically repeating Manson’s spiel.

 

 

Now we know what their vet feels about the deaths and gunshot euths.  We also know where the bodies go after Manson chops them up.  Talbot then goes onto say he wouldn’t `try’ with some of the horses they do and talks about gelding three a week or something.  He’s all over the map.  He reads nervous from this transcript.

 

 

More talk about euthanasia and then he starts to talk about Moss `engaging’ in the internet antics of HiCaliber.   He goes onto say he doesn’t know what Facebook is and doesn’t bother with things like that.

 

 

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that Manson’s vet is pro slaughter considering the other guys she does business with.  Again, I find it frustrating that none of these people seem to realize that it is illegal to ship horses to slaughter and, if they do know that, never mention it as maybe an issue that HiCaliber is covering for people that they know do this type of thing.

 

 

It kinda sounds like Dr. T isn’t having as much fun there as Manson would have us believe.  I sincerely hope nobody is making threats.  I know there is a shitload of crazy festering over on Facebook in one of the gazillion anti-HiCal groups but do NOT threaten people.  Not cool.  Not ever. If anybody threatens HiCaliber’s vet they are not putting horses first.  Asking polite questions is one thing, but threatening people and acting like an asshole is never ok.  You can’t bitch about Manson performing her own vet procedures and then run off the only vet that will even work with her.

 

 

Now we get to the fun part.  Manson’s interview.  I’m really not going to post every little thing since she basically just repeats a lot of what she always says, but I’ll try to dig a few nuggets out for everybody that’s too lazy to read the whole thing.

 

 

Manson talks about harvesting organs and one of the things I notice is this investigator isn’t buying what she’s selling.  She kinda skirts around the issue of who she is donating these organs to and also the relinquishment issue.  The two horses she killed that day were Bellona and Barbara and  she was obviously planning on chopping up their bodies.

 

 

The `Nina’ she is referring to was Ninna.  We all know that Ninna actually was losing weight and was shot in the face not long after this site visit.  As you can see Manson also bald-faced lied about where Ninna came from.  She was actually bought off Misner and she was not an evidence case nor were there two more headed her way.

 

 

This is some seriously fucked up logic on display here.  Manson is all concerned about having horses see other horses be shot in the face, but she’s perfectly fine standing one next to a dead body and in a river of blood?  Really??

expense.PNG

The inaudibles are starting to piss me off!

 

 

I’m wondering if Dumbass Darrel counts as a celebrity because other than that Lena Dunham was out there some years ago and she’s kind of an asshole too. I doubt either of them are buying the ranch for Manson.  A girl can dream though!

 

 

So, there’s a lot being said here, but a major problem here is that Manson thinks she owns the horses.  I can assure you that they are not `hers’.  The horses bought with donor dollars are considered charitable assets.  They are not her personal property.

 

 

It always comes back to killing shit with Manson.  No, she was not an AC officer at 19 yrs old.  Maybe she was pretending to be one and torturing small animals or something.  Who knows?  They say every killer gets their start that way so it’s not outside the realm of possibility.

coal road

Ummm No.  Just, no.  No, they did not recently have a `satellite site’ up on Cole Grade.  Maybe, just maybe, she’s referring to a place they shuffled some horses for a day when they knew the county was coming to inspect last year like they did, but there was not a satellite operation and the extra horses there are not `just temporary’ like she says.

 

 

I’m not sure who the guy she had that is doing full-time tractoring is, but he needs a new job.  We know it’s not JonASSthan because he’s jumped ship recently and Jesus is long gone.  The `chick’ from San Diego Humane is the officer that pays her regular visits at auction but what I find funny about Manson’s comments is her own qualifications or lack thereof for everything she does.  You know somebody is doing their job when Manson has something negative to say about it.  However, she catches herself in a lie.  She says she was an AC officer for 13 years, but earlier had said she done it since she was 19 years old. She’s older than that and, just to be clear, most of her AC officer years were not active.

kill

If she has 300 volunteers a month, why are the waters always empty and why is that place so filthy?  What are they doing?  Also yes, yes she does euthanize healthy horses.

 

 

The horse she is referring to was Barbara.  If you need to refresh your memory about Barbara you can read about her here. Barbara was a turning point for many people and given the condition she was in, I’m not sure how she was so dangerous.  The poor horse could barely stand up. However, given the abuse she must have suffered at the hands of Fice to get in that condition, I wouldn’t blame her if she was violent.  Does anybody believe she was loved on and shown kindness in her last moments?

 

 

I don’t really get Manson’s obsession with FHR and its founder, but she’s likely lying.  As far as how she treats every single person that donates to HiC, well, I’m sure you’ve all seen the `choke on a dick’ screenshot that has been making the rounds lately.  Moving on…

 

 

I’m even less of an MD than I am a DVM and I’m a 0% DVM, so can anybody tell me if they know of any doctor that would prescribe somebody injectable migraine meds?  I’m serious, I’ve never heard of such a thing and I know people who take Imitrex and they don’t `pop’ themselves with it.  They take a pill.  However it is a half assed acknowledgement from Manson that yes, people have seen her injecting herself.  I doubt that the parade incident involved Imitrex just because she had just fallen on her ass off a horse.

 

 

This is where Wrinkles shows up (female) and things get weird.  Manson tries to make like the mountains of manure is just because people were away over Christmas.  We all know different but even if that was the case, that’s crap.  I’ve worked with horses most of my life and they still get fed and looked after on Christmas day, including clean stalls.

 

 

I swear she has these rants memorized but what I find intriguing is she’s talking to investigators here.  It’s like she has zero social filters.  I have a foul mouth and I could probably swear Manson under the table without even trying, but time and a place.  I’m just going to go ahead and assume that Manson did not write How To Win Friends and Influence People.

 

 

I wonder if Dr. Grove realizes how often Manson throws him under the bus and name checks him lately?  I find this rant disturbing.  All this talk of chopping horses up and dead being dead, but then what about Johnny Cade?  Remember she needed $1600 to cremate him because she couldn’t send him to the landfill even though his ashes have yet to make an appearance. Maybe only some horses are science.  I have no idea what `cowlick’ is.

 

 

This is just more of an FYI.  Not sure I believe everything she is saying here given the amount of lies in the rest of this document.

 

 

This part of the conversation is important.  Manson often likes to tell us that these visits are no big deal and they were `cleared’.  Cpt. Perea clearly states that is not the case and this particular visit wasn’t for a specific incident. However, he does go on to basically say how they need things reported which I have highlighted.  Moving forward, if people see something that needs to be reported, that’s how you’re going to get it taken seriously.

 

 

These are excerpts from a classic Manson rant.  Truly classic.  Who talks like this to investigators that is in their right mind?  Rhetorical question btw…

 

 

This part is my absolute favorite part of the entire 80 pages.  It might be my most favorite thing EVER to do with this whole sorry mess.  I snarfed coffee out my nose the first time I read it.  Obviously this was from after they got in their vehicle but before they turned the recording off.

So, that’s the highlights of the transcript.  If you care to read it, the entire thing is at this link , if that doesn’t work try this one. It’s a lot of the same thing, but probably still worth the read.  I know this is going to get taken over to Facebook and the usual suspects are going to go nuts.  I’m not above calling out crazy on either side of the fence and my patience is extremely thin the more this escalates.  If there weren’t actual lives at stake here, it’s a rather fascinating study in human nature.  Manson is dug in saying she thrives on this drama.  That’s all well and good.  I see things like her kill spot and the condition of horses leaving that rescue and I’m dug in too.  Those animals are about as innocent and vulnerable as it gets and somebody has to advocate for them.  When I started this back in May, I thought a couple of posts, HiC might knock their shit off or at least I got things off my chest and we’d all go our own ways.  I never in a million years knew the depths of the corruption and evil that was going on or about to.  Each week I’m actually surprised in a not so good way.  I think every single person that is involved in this on whichever side needs to have a good think about what their motive is.  Are you in it for drama?  Because your feelings got hurt?  Is it about winning?  Need to be a hero?  If it’s any of those things, anything other than for those horses, then you need to find a new hobby.  This is NOT a game and the only ones that are going to win here are those horses, so all the wannabe heroes and turd flingers can take several seats because there is work to do and ain’t nobody backing down at this point.  Have a great week!
Edited to add: I am going to put this out here right now. I’m starting to feel with all of the crazy out there that we are sort of adrift alone on our little island trying to get things done properly. Everyone is going crazy trying to one up each other, while over here we stay sort of rational and focused. Y’all are a wonderful group and we are both proud you are with us–but the rest of this BS has got to stop.
To that end, Shed and I are in agreement that no mention of any of the FB drama is going to be brought here and although sharing the blog is fine, and actually encouraged–we respectfully ask that people stop taking pictures from the blog and posting them everywhere. A lot of misinformation occurred with at least one of the photos last week, and it really upset the people who provided the pictures and we would prefer that they not stop sharing it with us so that we can get the information out to you.

So, is everybody ready to get back to business?  I’m not sure I am, but things are piling up again which means yet another heavy post.  I’d like to say I had a nice break but that really wasn’t the case either.  The fuckery continues and escalates no matter what, leaving me with more than usual to wrestle with.  As usual there is a so much deceit and grifting going on it’s kinda difficult to follow, but I’m going to do my best to lay it all out.  I’m not sure if the Manson Family are upping the ante or we’re just getting better at catching the grift.  I gotta say that even I was surprised at how low they sank these past few weeks.  I don’t think I can even get it all covered in one post so I’m going to do deal with general and run of the mill fuckery today and we’ll get to the bulk of the auction fuckery in the next one or so.  I hope that works for everybody because it’s time to settle in.  I have some tea to spill!

 

Even though I was only really away for a couple of days, the theories of where I was and why I was away were somewhat amusing.  None of them were based in fact or even all that exciting.  Seriously, I am the world’s worst sick person and there is nothing more to it than that. Man flu has nothing on me!  It doesn’t even really matter other than when you are wrong about something and don’t acknowledge that, then it’s kinda hurts whatever other facts you may have. In the interest of that, it seems the intel on the inaugural Manson Does Texas trip was slightly off.  Originally, it was said she went to some Mean Girls Conference and, I gotta admit, that never did feel 100% right unless she went as a specimen or a bad example.  It turns out that isn’t what she was doing when she went on that trip.  She was actually at the Lady Boss Weight Loss dealio as pictured above, and yes, that is Manson right there smiling for the group photo-op.  The other screenshots are from previous weight loss attempts that the donors all got to pay for as well.  Don’t get me wrong, I applaud anybody’s efforts to improve their health and fitness.  I do have a problem with grifting for it though.  I especially have an issue when you have to fly half way across the country to do some aerobics with the latest social media sensation when you could probably just get off your ass and do chores right where you live and have a total win/win situation that doesn’t break any laws and consist of lying to people on the internet.  Also, if people recall, Manson went on and on about that being her first trip to Texas and how much she loved it there.  That was then…

Flash forward to a few weeks ago and a few trips to the Lonestar state under her belt and, all of a sudden, we’re having `family emergencies’ there.  I’m not quite sure how that works, but I’ve been trying to manifest a family emergency somewhere tropical for myself but so far no luck.  Why is any of this relevant?  Normally it really wouldn’t be.  I don’t really care about how far she has to search for some peen and I also don’t really care when she lies to her team. They should be used to that by now.  What I do care about is the pattern of lying and that old six degrees of separation thing just kicking her square in the ass.  Manson just so happened to end up sitting next to some nice people who,  while originally unaware of her and who she was, were subjected to a flight full of lies and boasts.  To make matters even better, they happen to know more than a few people on the `hater’ side of things.  So yeah, Manson opened by introducing herself and who she is and proceeded to tell them how important she was and that there was even a blog about her. That’s when she showed them this blog.  (Welcome new haters, enjoy your stay.)  Manson also told them that she had booked the trip on a whim to `get away from it all’ after the haters had the FBI raid the ranch, which was also not true.  The FBI were not part of the little party at the ranch the other week.  As is often the case with people that love to hear themselves speak, Manson forgot what she had told them in the first part of the flight and later said she had booked her Texas trip a `long time ago’ when there was a $29 seat sale.  What are the odds she would know so far in advance that she would have a family emergency on that day?  Anyhow, y’all were curious about the airplane incident so that’s what I know other than that she was discussing vaginas in under 10 mins.   Moving right along…

I think I’m just going to drop these pictures of the general conditions at HiCaliber before we get into more specific updates.  These are all very recent pics and as you can see, it’s pretty crowded and dangerous there despite what Manson claims.   This is what happens when you have more horses you can properly care for.  Fences don’t get repaired, things don’t get noticed.  Call me a snob or whatever, but this kinda looks like a bad backyard that horses should be rescued from.

Umbra appears to be holding her own which is good to see.  There is some controversy over the whole lactating mare thing.  It happens, but I’m not sure whatever it is that Eclipse is producing is enough to sustain a growing and healing baby, so hopefully milk replacer is involved as well.  Regardless of what is being fed, Umbra seems to have replaced Magnum as far as who the majority of the village idiots ask after or seem concerned with.  I guess he outgrew his cute factor and isn’t sad enough to hold their attention right now.  Perhaps a crisis situation could be created to bump his algorithms or something.  I did notice he has some old wound or scar on his nose on the latest live feed so perhaps that could be blown well out of proportion for some sympathy dollars or something.

Since we’ve discussed Umbra, we should probably look right across the alleyway to Legacy.  In a recent live feed, we could see all the red tape in the stall across from Eclipse and Umbra.  No explanation was given but apparently that means `hard quarantine’ or something.  What hard quarantine is vs regular quarantine is anybody’s guess, but it doesn’t seem to be working.  Legacy is currently very sick and has burst out some abscesses under his jaw.  I’m pretty sure we’re still not allowed to call it what it is *cough*strangles*cough*, and I’m also not entirely sure wtf bandaging it is supposed to accomplish unless they are trying to drive that abscess internal and really mess him up.  This has been going on for well over a week and he was on IV support last I heard. I’m sure now that this is out in the open Manson will refuse to do any updates on him because she’s not your bitch and all. No word on whether or not he’s seen a real vet, but if he has, I want to know who would suggest bandaging a throat like that and make sure that vet never sets foot near one of my animals.

Remember Gigi?  She is the cute little black mare with the busted up knee and droopy eye they bought from one of their regular flippers back around mid January.  We haven’t really heard too much about Gigi since then other than she is relatively sound and `cute’.  The pictures are above are from the day they bought her in the parking lot at auction.  Wanna see how she’s doing barely a month later?  Of course you do!

These pics were taken of Gigi within the last week.  As you can see her filthy bandage is like a tourniquet on her leg now that it has slipped and her droopy eye goes unprotected or cleaned up.  I don’t really see where `rescue’ has happened for this horse.  She is not in as good of condition as she was when they purchased her a month ago and it’s not like she is living in paradise either.  I’m concerned for her, but I’m concerned for a lot of HiCaliber horses right now.

This brings us to Trish.  I’ve been back and forth about whether I should write about her or not.  I realize doing so is maybe going to hurt her chances at getting out of HiCaliber alive, but her chances of that have always been bad since being an adoption return.  Having said that, I think there is some information that is almost criminal to withhold and also to not reveal what is going on with this particular horse is setting her up for failure as well.  My only hope is that she can get out and land softly with somebody that has all the information.  That being said….

Trish is the little bay mare pictured above being used in Amanduh’s lesson program.  I’m not going to get into the WTFedness of the entire scenario  as far as lessons go, or that the children appear to be strapped to the tack, but just that Trish is being used and has been used for a while since being an adoption return last fall.  She did not last long at adoption, but the people who had her, took the time to get her properly vetted and made that report available to HiCaliber.  Please note the dates on the letter below.

trish3

Trish was returned as being neurological and deemed unsafe for use as a lesson horse. Since that time she has been used regularly for lessons and is now advertised as a light rider and previously a kid’s horse even though they were well aware of her issues.  She’s already a one time adoption return so I think it’s safe to say if she went out and came back again she’d be as good as dead as Manson will call her a hay burner.  I sincerely hope that posting this doesn’t place her at greater risk either.  We don’t know why she’s neurological but I can bet that no further diagnostics were done to find out they whys and hows of it either.  I guess I couldn’t live with myself if somebody got seriously hurt by adopting her and thinking everything was fine and I had information that proved otherwise.  I also would hate to think of kids learning to ride on an unsafe horse.  I really don’t know what the right thing to do with this is other than pray this little mare doesn’t pay for somebody else’s greed and ignorance.

diane

diane

If you recall, we put Diane on a milk carton back in December as she had dropped off the radar.  Part of the problem at HiCaliber lately is that horses just kinda disappear off the radar and the village idiots have been conditioned not to ask too may questions.  That’s why the milk carton horses when we can’t find out answers any other way.  Sadly, we got our answer for Diane and she was found dead in her pen sometime in December.  No cause of death has been made official and I haven’t seen anybody asking after her either.  This mare was a parking lot purchase from Salvador back in November. Emaciated at the time, I’m not sure if she ever did gain any weight or have a few good days.  Hopefully, she is at peace now.  RIP Diane.  #sayhername

waco1.PNG

Waco was a parking lot purchase a few weeks back.  I believe he came from Nacho but will have to update that in a bit.  He was clearly in a lot of pain but because Manson’s x ray eyes did not diagnose the severe rotation in his coffin bones, he was kept alive for some additional fundraising and parading around for the camera. There were all sorts of contradictions with him.  He was `thought’ to be a compassion pull, then he was one for sure and then Manson’s FUPA got involved and told her he didn’t want to die yet so they needed more money to actually do the xrays.  However, another horse had been immediately adopted so her responsible rescue fees were supposed to slide over to Waco, but they didn’t and then Manson had to go to Texas for her `family emergency’ that didn’t actually involve family or any other sort of emergency other than being horny.  All that added up to Amanduh getting the news that this horse was in all kinds of pain and not fixable on a Friday.  Sadly for Waco, this meant he got to linger in pain for an extra few days until Manson came home and shot him in the face.  RIP Waco.  #sayhisname

Clancy also experienced death by Manson in recent weeks.  He was another Salvador special back in early January and never seemed to resonate with the village.  He was also said to be older so that, along with showing `significant’ lameness likely sealed his fate.  Seriously though, who gets on a horse to find out if it’s lame?  Wouldn’t most sane people figure that out first?  Wouldn’t an intake by a real vet include a cursory soundness exam?  Again, how was this horse rescued and what was his quality of life like since landing at HiCaliber?  RIP Clancy.  #sayhisname

Poor Mas. She almost made it out alive.  Her place was all secured at Prancing Pony Sanctuary and HiCaliber even had a post up begging for the hauling money.  What they didn’t tell people was that she was dead the same day by Manson’s hand. I wish I knew the reason why or what sense there is to make of any of this.  I know it wasn’t announced and kept very quiet for a few days.  It was only when somebody actually asked Prancing Pony that they admitted that Mas was dead and they were getting a replacement grey mare or something like that.  It’s hard to follow and especially so when Prancing Pony doesn’t seem to ever update HiCaliber horses they absorb into their program.  What we do know is that Mas came from Nacho and that Romney Faye had known about her for several months.  For whatever reason, she was not deemed worthy of `saving’ until it was too late for her.  RIP Mas.  #sayhername

Crackers has also recently been sent to the land of the blue tarps.  Again, I have no idea why.  She came with the usual convoluted back story about a poor old rancher that was about to get foreclosed on so he had nowhere to turn.  I forget whether the part of the rancher was played by Salvador or Nacho that week, but it was one of those guys and she came with a buddy they named `Salami’. For some reason the old rancher didn’t know the name of his own `beloved horses’ so it was up to Manson’s children to do the honors.  Crackers was cute and was seen on video following people around without a halter a few times.  Only a few weeks ago, they were bandaging some mysterious wound on her, but she was otherwise doing `great’ and people were even making adoption inquiries.  Now she’s dead.  RIP Crackers #sayhername

Probably not a huge surprise that Clarence was shot in the head recently.  He was in pretty bad shape and came through the regular flipper channels.  Once again the very people who mangled him were rewarded for his suffering with $200.  The difference is Clarence’s brand is really easily traceable with a direct connection to Salvador.

Clarence’s brand came from Rancho Caballero.  They are big into horse tripping and think bucking out weanlings is great sport.  The above pics are just a smattering of their social media activities.  They don’t try to hide what they do, they’re proud of it.  Do I think Clarence was a tripping horse?  No, they don’t brand those usually.  I think Clarence was sat on to trip quite a few and when they were done with him, they tossed him aside to suffer before HiCaliber created a market for their abuse.  These guys are friends of Salvador’s and participate in the same rodeos.  These people are the ones hurting these animals and HiCaliber and its village reward them for it.  Paying them finder’s fees is not helping the problem, it’s escalating it.  What true rescue or animal lover would ever protect people like this?  RIP Clarence.  #sayhisname

blake

Blake is also another blue tarp victim in recent weeks.  As mentioned before, the other livestock being drug back to HiCaliber have a worse fatality rate than the equines and take up even less of the village idiots’ attention. Blake was brought in around the first of the month and said to have pneumonia.  We aren’t entirely sure if that was his deal as he was also leaking urine and we know that Dr. Talbot does not generally treat animals.  There has been a disturbing pattern of the 30% vet diagnosing these animals and giving them inappropriate treatments.  Mostly they do not survive.  They suffer too and as often as we can find out their fates, we’ll say their names too.  RIP Blake #sayhisname

Her name was Beatrice.  At least that’s what I’m told.  There was never a big announcement about it and her sad little life didn’t last long once she got into Manson’s clutches.  Such is the trend lately that horses are being brought in and euthanized before they barely get a name.  She was another flipper special and it is doubtful there was ever much intention of rehabbing her.  She obviously served somebody or many people well over the years and I find it sad her ending was staring at Manson in the face as she got blown away.  RIP Beatrice.  #sayhername

I have to admit this one disturbs me a bit more than usual.  Jackson Max was bought at auction back in July.  He was very thin and agitated in the intake video and Manson aged him somewhere around 10 years old if memory serves.  We didn’t hear a bunch about him before he popped up on their Greens and Ghouls event for $200 and sometime after that he either went to foster or training.  Again, I’m not entirely sure although he was brought back to the ranch recently and took up residence behind the `hard qt’ red tape in the barn.  As of this past weekend Jackson Max is dead.  The details on that are where it gets disturbing…

blood

Tarp with a trail of congealed blood and manure after Jackson Max’s death

Jackson Max’s death upset quite a few people apparently.  Honesty, we don’t know which horse was the one that bled out by the tarps, but at least two died that day and he was one of them.  They usually go in twos so it could have been whoever else had to join him that weekend.  The amount of blood doesn’t exactly paint a picture of a `nearly no blood’ or peaceful death for me.  It certainly didn’t for the person that took the picture who was even more upset knowing who that blood probably belonged to.  Then we have the mention of deconning his stall and the picture of it (beside Legacy’s stall) with the red QT tape all over it.  Draw your own conclusions on that and remember the two foals are living in the same barn.  To make matters worse you have a volunteer that almost apologizes for being upset at the loss of this young horse.  I probably shouldn’t even feel sorry for this particular volunteer since she has been somewhat of a nuisance to this blog, but I get it.  She wants to believe in what she’s doing and now maybe, just maybe, this will be enough to wake her the fuck up or at least stop normalizing this type of behavior.  At the end of the day I just care about a young horse that by many accounts didn’t really need to die.  RIP Jackson Max #sayhisname

HC Death Clock countdown

Countdown clocks rather than names make more sense at HiCal these days…

I think that’s probably enough for one day.  We’re certainly not all caught up, not even on our deaths, but we’ve made a dent.  I actually thought taking a break, even if it was longer than planned, might calm the crazy down a bit.  If anything it’s escalated.  Manson seems to be completely losing her shit all over social media.  Some people on this side of the fence are joining her.  Auction is such a complete joke I’m still trying to figure out where to start with that post, but it’s coming very soon.  I also have a special treat post coming up soon too.  I was only gone a few days and there is a definite shift in the feel of things.  Of course, along with that comes the people wanting to force hands and play out their own agenda.  Human nature and all, and also not my problem.  I also know there are a lot of various threats getting thrown about in attempts to silence people.  I find that telling.  If all this is so wrong, if everything posted is just some personal agenda, then wouldn’t it be more productive and effective to bat it aside and dispute it with truth rather than attempt to threaten people into silence? Makes me wonder what exactly is being protected that we haven’t uncovered yet.  It certainly doesn’t motivate me to stop shining a light.  Thanks to everybody, especially our `moles’ ,  that continue to hang in there with us and fight the good fight.  There is light at the end of the tunnel and this time, it is not an oncoming train.  It’s not our job to defend the truth but only to set it free.  For that reason,  we stay the course.

Wow, that last post is a tough one to follow as far as impact.  It kinda felt like a mic drop and that perhaps a ride off into the sunset would be appropriate.  Really, what more is there to say or prove after that?  Well, it turns out quite a bit.  Our moles have been extremely diligent and have really outdone themselves this past week.  In order to make sure that there won’t be more accounts like we just read, there is still work to do for all of us, so we soldier on.  I’m not here to change anybody’s mind, I’m here to pass along information and perhaps paint a clearer picture than HiCaliber shows its village.  I’ve got a lot of `painting’ to do today so probably best to get right to it.  Settle in folks, it’s another long one!  I don’t even know why I bother to say that any more….

Remember that Paint horse Manson dug up last week?  The one that was at Misner’s lot but Manson pretended was from some family who purchased as a kid’s horse but was way more crippled than they imagined?  The one that once he turned up at HiCaliber wasn’t so crippled at all?  Manson screwed up by showing him on Misner’s lot and even though she drove him to a different location for new pics, people had already seen him there in person.  At the time, I remember mentioning to some other advocates that there was pretty much zero chance that Manson drove all that way to just pick up one horse and that more would show up soon.  Turns out I was right​.  The other two she brought home the very same day magically showed up this week.  The first was the older bay that was `going to auction tomorrow’.  What the village idiots did not realize is he was already standing at HiCaliber along with the red dun stallion who was promptly marked for death.

bubba4

 

 

The bay and the red dun stallion were on the trailer with the Paint.  If you recall, there was a skinny mare from up north that was supposed to be rescued with Wilkins but the village idiots weren’t motivated enough and that’s likely why the above two horses got to hang out at HiCaliber for a few days until their stories were told.  To recap, we first heard of Wilkins the Paint on January 24th.  The skinny mare from `up north’ never materialized but we’ll get to her later.  Manson and Wrinkles pick up Wilson on January 25th and introduce him after dark.  At this time, both the skinny bay and red dun stallion are also at HiCaliber.  On January 29th, we were introduced to this skinny bay gelding that belonged to somebody who didn’t speak English but miraculously managed to communicate over the phone that he was having financial problems and that the horse was thin with all his bones showing but was still very rideable.  He also, despite this huge language barrier, said he was afraid to show up at auction because of all the `slacktivists’. Slacktivist is Manson’s new favorite word even if she doesn’t use it in proper context.  That’s a lot of information from somebody that doesn’t speak English.  Manson did say that the picture of the horse (above) was over a month old, so we know the person that had him was responsible for his present lack of condition.  He only wanted $150.

bubba2

Yup!  You guessed it!  The role of the poor guy with a language barrier who was so afraid to go to auction was being played by none other than Bubba Misner.  He’s not afraid to go to auction.  He’s just too lazy and probably has a pie hangover.  The skinny bay, now called Poseidon, showed up with a red dun stallion who still had sweat marks from a saddle on his back.  Manson just had to `save’ him too and said he was a relinquishment but they paid $150 for each as part of their `Find Us A Horse To Shoot’ incentive program.  The fact that she claimed these horses were relinquished is where things get shady even for Manson.

reddun2

You know that things aren’t going to go well for a horse when Manson doesn’t bother to raise funds and this was the case with the red dun. Manson claimed he had `advanced Wobblers’ and had to be euthanized.  The problem is you can’t diagnose something like that in the field and Wobblers isn’t really an automatic death sentence without finding out what is causing it.  In the video Manson took, the horse does have some gait irregularities, but he certainly doesn’t appear to be `advanced wobblers’.  Near the end where he catches a sniff of a mare he’s stepping fairly lively and wringing his tail.  A neuro horse wouldn’t be able to do those things nor would he be able to short turn like they are making him do.  Maybe he has had some trauma to his back or neck recently and maybe he could be nursed through it.  We’ll never know because Manson won’t take the time.  She couldn’t even be bothered to get his papers and find out who he really was, saying it didn’t matter.  I’m told they eventually named him `Teddy Graham’ before shooting him in the face.  Manson said we shouldn’t feel bad because he’d be chopped up and donated to `science’.  RIP Teddy Graham. #sayhisname

Before we move on to some auction things, I want people to take a look at these pictures.  All of them were taken of Misner’s’ place from various angles.  Recognize the background and the shitty fencing because they feature heavily in many of the pictures used for mid-week cons.  These pics were from awhile ago and one of the things that several different people have let me know recently is that right Misner’s lot is currently overflowing with horses.  I know the saddle horse industry hasn’t experienced a boom, so perhaps he’s on his way to New Mexico or Texas with some loads soon.  Looking at the conditions on his lot it’s kinda easy to imagine why that bay horse lost weight in the time Misner had him and maybe even why Johnny Cade was in such rough shape.

auction

Let’s talk about auction.  It was interesting to say the least.  Manson started out her day by lying her ass off and people were escorted off the property by police.  Didn’t happen.  Yes, the police were there and I’m sure they spoke to a few people for whatever reason but who they did not speak to was our stealth mole.  I’m not sure how `human safety’ plays into any of this.  It’s not like Manson has a soul to steal by taking her picture or anything and besides, our interest, as always is in the horses and the real stories behind them.

skinny mares

Let’s take a brief jump back to January 24th when Manson was begging for money to save this one skinny mare with a sad story.  Strangely, in the very poor photos she showed us, there appears to have been three different horses.  The lone horse in the first pic has one right hind white and appears to be emaciated.  Manson claimed that the horse on the left of the other pic already had a home and the other, the headless one, was the one that needed to be rescued.  Again, we were asked to suspend belief as she claimed that the two skinny horses were the same horse.  They clearly are not. We were also asked to believe that even though this person couldn’t afford to buy feed for his horses, he drove all the way down to Ontario from `up north’ only be turned around and then come back a week later to auction to meet with them again.   Also according to Manson, all these down on their luck people reach out to other rescues and nobody will help them but HiCaliber, yet no other rescues have ever heard about these horses until they show up on the HiCaliber Facebook page.  At any rate, Manson didn’t raise the cash she required to help this `one’ horse she claimed needed `urgent intervention’ so she said they’d deal with it later because there was also two other mares needing help.  Clear as mud?  Let’s go back to auction last week, a full six days later.

salvador6

 

Manson starts things off with this post that had a video attached of a skinny red mare.  The mare wasn’t moving all that badly though.  It turns out that video was the wrong one so they did a fast edit and added a different red mare’s video. This mare really was fairly sore and just to drive her point home, Manson made her hobble around for the camera and so she could text a clip to a `vet’ to diagnose and to inspire her village idiots to dig deep.  The village idiots dutifully ignored the fact that there was another red mare waiting in the wings and set about raising money for the eyelash fund responsible rescue and purchase price.

pyper

salvador2.PNG

Finally, the original skinny shows up.  The down on his luck guy from `up north’ found the funds to come to the parking lot to relinquish his mare that we were supposed to forget we saw a video of a few hours later.  Sadly, without the thrill of the chutes and all the drama that entails it was a hard sell to the village idiots and right about this time there was some paranoia flaring up because these horses came straight out of Salvador’s trailer.  Shocking, I know.  I still have no idea what the strategy was behind the order of posting these mares when they all came from the same person.  Pulling her video down and replacing it with another threw up far more red flags than had they just left it.  Even if she wasn’t that sore, we’re quite used to the 30% vet misdiagnosing things and not being able to pick out lameness to save her miserable life.  By quickly yanking down her video it was clear there was more to the story.

That’s right, just as we suspected over a week ago, that skinny mare and two others were standing at Salvador’s place the whole time. What I find disturbing is the truly emaciated one never did show up to auction that we know of so that doesn’t bode well for her.  We know at least two of the sorrel mares came from his trailer on Tuesday, Pyper and Char. We also know that Salvador got pissed at the clusterfuck going on in the parking lot and was cursing `This is bullshit’ before hopping in his truck and driving off which is when stealth mole #2 picked him up heading back towards Perris presumably to mangle some more horses for the HiCaliber grifting pipeline.  The second video was taken a few months ago when Romney Faye named Salvador (in the same trailer) right on camera as they unload some tripping horses. Most of them didn’t even make it back to HiCaliber before being shot in the head.

This is an older clip of Manson describing Salvador.  I just wanted to post it up to remind people of what she used to say about him before they become partners in grifting.

In between the sorrel mares, the village idiots were presented with this gray mare.  As usual, she had a sad story and was facing a terrible fate.  To top it all off, she was `cancer infested’.  Nothing creates exigency like some harmless melanomas.  I’m sure the rest of you are yawning and wondering `so what?’ by now.  This is where having experienced moles comes in.  This mare does have quite a history but it’s not exactly what Manson was telling people.  As is usually the case with Manson, there is often a very slight shred of truth to her lies and she builds from there.  So, let’s take another trip back in time. Thankfully, this mare not only has the Rancho Bonilla brand on her, but a broodmare number which makes her easier than most to track.

Three weeks ago, this mare was advertised on Craigslist along with two others and it was stated they `might’ be pregnant.  Her `83′ and Bonilla brand clearly visible in some of the pictures along with the melanomas on her head.  They said they wanted $2000 each which is kinda funny considering he only wanted $500 for her in September and lowered that to $300 last week.  She may have been with somebody else between September and last week because it’s not really like Nacho to take the time to roach a mane and he’s not known to have a stallion at all let alone one like was in the craigslist ad.  How do I know what he wanted back in September?  Read on!

Romney Faye and Nacho dealing horses at Ontario Auction, September 12,2017

This is Romney Faye and Nacho back on September 12th.  He is showing her the pictures of the grey mare then and, at the time, he wanted $500 for her.  He wasn’t willing to come down on the price because he said he would keep and breed her if he didn’t get what he was asking.  I’m not really up to speed on all things Andalusian, but apparently the Bonilla brand is a good thing.  I don’t think it’s a great thing for horses since these old grey mares with that brand seem to turn up at low-end auctions with some regularity.  Anyhow, obviously HiCaliber declined back in September.  If you recall, Manson hates Nacho and refers to him as `Nacho Motherf@#ker’ because he stands firm on his prices. I’m pretty sure she’ll dispute all this so I’ll throw another layer on things.  It turns out Nacho was offering this mare to more than just HiCaliber.  Despite what Manson and Romney Faye say, these flippers, Misner and Salvador included, will sell to whoever hands them the cash.

Unlike Romney Faye and Manson,  a mole did got to Nacho’s back in September to check things out.  As you can see, it is the same mare (check brands) and she was in much better condition back then.  The video (click on it to play)shows Nacho right there with the mare and our mole describing what she sees/  This was taken on the same day he was talking to Romney Faye above.  You can see same shirt, hat etc on Nacho.  I can already hear the bitching about why `we’ didn’t purchase this horse back then.  There’s a couple of reasons.  She wasn’t in bad shape at the time, but also the sad part of `investigating’ things is you sometimes have to hold out for the greater good as hard as that may be.  We can’t point fingers at HiCaliber for lining the pockets of these flippers and kill buyers and then do the same thing too.  There was nothing reportable with this mare in September and the mole has kept an eye out for her ever since.

Which brings us right back to last week and the same mare arrives at auction in Nacho’s trailer where she is promptly offloaded to HiCaliber.  Nacho vacates the scene before the Facebook post about her even goes up and gets rolling for fundraising.  I cannot say for sure this mare was in his possession the entire time between September and last week.  My instinct says probably not as the property in the Craigslist ad doesn’t appear to be Nacho’s place.  It appears she was sold or leased out to be a broodmare and likely didn’t catch.  This also makes Manson’s threat of her being bought up to dance or be a broodmare kinda ridiculous. Is there anybody out there that still thinks these deals aren’t made well before auction?

Because Manson will protect her revenue stream at all costs, she decided to load all the horses up, including yet another sorrel mare she claims they bought in the ring, and drive them to a local back road to unload yet again and beg for more money.  She blamed the haters for this and pleaded with the village idiots not to comment how much they are donating.  Manson also warned them to lock down their Facebook page because people are having their work called etc.  I think she was projecting because everything she described were things she has actually done to others including phoning people’s employers.  The only difference is that when she does it she says it’s just a joking around and friendly rivalry.  I’m not sure the people who have been targeted by Manson and her village idiots feel the same, but I’ll say right here and now, that if ANYBODY is doing shit like that, knock it off and grow up.

The cretins in the above video are also people who deal horses to HiCaliber and are seen off and on at Ontario Auction. While they aren’t as regular as Misners, Salvador and Nacho, we know from past events that they all start out sporadic and get bolder and bolder as time goes on.  We have an idea on who these guys are but need a few more things to fall into place.  There seems to be a trend of compassion pulls lately and if HiCaliber won’t step up and report the people who are hurting these animals, then the rest of us will, so we start with identifying them or confirming the known identities.

With the execution of Teddy Graham this week, it became clear that at least one other horse would join him under the blue tarp.  I can’t remember the last time Manson only shot one.  It seems like she likes to get the most bang for her buck with the body removal service as well. The reason Madge was killed was chronic laminitis as diagnosed by the 30% vet.  No memorial posts or good byes for Madge.  Just a walk to the killing field.  If she was lucky, she was the first to go and didn’t have to stand beside the chopped up body of Teddy Graham.  Although, she was probably hacked to pieces too since Manson seems to be really into that lately.  RIP Madge.  #sayhername

If you have any doubt about how Manson feels about shooting all these animals each week, please watch the above video. It begins with Robyn shooting a gun off camera and Engineer spooking.  Likely the same gun they use to execute all the other animals, but this day they were merely shooting it off to scare coyotes.  Still, I wonder if that’s the reaction the horses have when Manson is doing her weekly executions.  Then, we have Manson thinking it’s hilarious and, once again, making fun of how we like to remember their names and killing horses in general.  You know what they say about many a truth being spoken in jest…

Horses aren’t the only ones that are ending up under the blue tarp lately.  The mortality rate for the other livestock Manson has taken to dragging home is even worse.  Just in the last week Milkdud the calf, Grandma Goat and Kevin the cow have all died.  Kevin was killed by Manson from what I understand and while she blew Madge away without so much as a sniffle, Kevin was memorialized, complete with faux tears, on live feed.  Manson mentioned that Grandma Goat had died on her own, which is disturbing considering Manson practiced her 30% vet skills on her infected udder and diagnosed her with pneumonia.  I can only imagine how sick the poor animal was for her to just lay down and die.  I’m told Milkdud died essentially the same way.  RIP Milkdud, Kevin and Grandma.  We’ll say their names too.

Speaking of other livestock, this steer, Kipper, might be the next to find himself under the blue tarp.  Even though it was not that long ago that Manson was afraid of cows and admitted to knowing nothing about them, she is now subjecting them to her 30% veterinary procedures and diagnostics as well.  I find this extremely disturbing on several levels.  These animals suffer just as much as any other animal.  They hurt, they feel fear and discomfort too.  The very fact she is able to acquire them for pennies on the pound or free, kinda says to me that these animals are already very sick.  If there was any value in them whatsoever as meat or whatever else, she wouldn’t be getting them. So, she’s taking an already dying animal and torturing it basically and nobody cares because it’s just a cow or just a goat.

I found these quotes from Manson and Romney Faye to be quite interesting.  Just going to leave them here along with the video of Satan.  You know you’re a POS when even Satan thinks you’re shady…

I found this post from one of their private groups somewhat interesting.  We’re used to hearing about empty and filthy water tubs, so that part isn’t remarkable.  What I did kinda wonder about is the `hard QT’.  What is hard QT vs regular QT?  Does hard QT mean they take of their filthy Uggs?  Why do they have to put stakes and tape up to remind people when Manson has always claimed there is a quarantine area of the ranch?  Then, we have the pictures of Manson’s kiddo riding around on the recently arrived Wilkins.  He’s in the arena she turns out anything and everything lately and in the barn as well as in the grooming area.  We know this horse came off Misner’s lot less than two weeks ago and they have said themselves that he has Strangles on his lot.  Does quarantine only apply to horses she or her spawn don’t take an interest in? So many questions!

Lately Manson has been trying to sell us the `free euthanasia’ thing and claims that they pay an incentive to people to relinquish the horses.  That’s a creative way to say they are buying horses to kill, but even more disturbing, she continues to raise money for `diagnostics’.  In other words, these free horses are still costing the village idiots the same amount of money, but Manson has just reframed where the money is going.  The last three screen shots may be a more accurate depiction where a large part of the responsible rescue fee is going with the `compassion pulls’ . Ok, music lessons for the kid isn’t so far-fetched, but hiring an interior decorator to do your other kid’s room?  Manson doesn’t even own the house or all the furniture in it and she’s hiring interior designers?  We know this is true because the kid actually spilled it on a live feed not all that long ago.  This isn’t even mentioning the new tack that Santa brought them this year.  I think that’s fairly impressive considering Manson told us she only had $400 to spend on Christmas.  Way to stretch those dollars, Manson!  Clearly, being an unemployed single mother is far more lucrative than working a full time professional job.

tackfitting

I really don’t have much to say about this screen shot other than how funny I think it is.  Every single video or picture I see of Amanduh or Manson they are in ill-fitting tack with their stupid rope halters done up wrong.  Now they want to teach other people how to make sure their horses are as uncomfortable as possible and learn to hate being ridden?  Sign me up!

Perhaps Manson needs to sign up for some of those tack fitting classes for herself.  In return she can teach her patented `Starfish’ method of riding and, if you are truly advanced, she will teach you the Extreme Starfish/Chair Seat Combo.  That’s not something you see every day.  I’m in awe, but not in a good way.

After over 3 weeks of watching the poor little filly, Umbra, walking around with her crooked legs, Manson finally decided to look into doing something about her and took her into the clinic to be assessed. I don’t know why she waited so long as the chances of any surgery working are greatly reduced the older she gets, but better late than never maybe.  What was weird is the filly was checked into the clinic under Wrinkles’ name rather than HiCaliber. I’m not surprised they are trying to hide who is doing the diagnostics and surgery because that’s just what they do.  It appears to be SLREH though for anybody that wants to contribute directly to her care rather than put more money in Manson’s pocket.  It shouldn’t matter who has possession of this filly, if you feel motivated to help, then do so, just be smart about it.  She is no less worthy just because of who has possession of her. I wouldn’t hold my breath for updates on her though because Manson is not your bitch.

quote

I stumbled across this quote the other day.  I wonder if this was ever true and if it was, if the old Manson would recognize the current version.  I think my favorite part is when she says `I am still a simpleton’.  I’m guessing just like her 30% veterinary terminology, she wasn’t quite clear what that word actually means and how to use it.  Just further proof that there is always the tiniest shred of truth in most of the lies she tells.

I think that’s probably enough information to digest for today.  I notice as things heat up that everybody is eager to `help’ bring this to an end.  Obviously, we are all free to do as we choose and there is more than one way to approach things.  I would just suggest that before people act, that they ask themselves what they are trying to accomplish.  As you can tell from what was provided today, some of the moles that contribute to this blog have been at this for a very long time.  It takes remarkable self-control and dedication to collect information and sit on it until it paints a larger picture and has a real impact.  We’re busy behind the scenes and only getting busier.  I will continue to share what I can and hope that everybody manages to keep their crazy tucked in for just a little bit longer.  It will be worth it, trust me!

As promised, I have another guest post to share today.  I’m always so grateful to the people who step up to tell their personal experiences with HiCaliber.  By now most of you are aware of the bullying and intimidation tactics that are employed by the village idiots and Manson family in order to silence people.  Work places are called, business pages bombarded and, if you’re super lucky and live close enough, you might get something nasty left in your mailbox.  None of this changes the truth and with more and more people stepping forward, there is strength in numbers.  Still, each and every person that does decide to stand up and speak out does so knowing that retaliation is possible and their bravery is appreciated.  I hope that the readers will also be supportive of them.  In this post, you will hear the stories behind several horses that we have talked about on this blog before, not the least of which is the recently deceased Nala.  It is a detailed account of one foster/trainer’s experiences with HiCaliber fully backed up with extensive documentation and proof.  I can’t thank this foster enough for this accounting of her experience and her thoroughness in putting it all together for everybody.  If there are any questions about this post, she asks that they are put in the comments here rather than bombarding her social media.  This took a lot of her time and effort to pull this together for everybody and I can’t thank her enough.  I’ll be back with the auction breakdown on Friday so, for now, I’m going to turn things over to our guest poster…This one will break your hearts.

confessions

This is my experience with HiCaliber. Truthfully, for the majority of the time we spent working with them, the relationship was, if not perfect, at least respectful and functional – and I don’t want to take away from that. It was only during our last few months that things really started to turn sour and fall apart. I don’t want to hurt any of the good people doing good things, and I don’t want to demonize any of the good people doing questionable things, but I believe this story needs to be told.

________________________________________________________________________________

 

In early April 2016, I sent HiCaliber an email, asking about fostering Joplin (purchased January 26, 2016). I was told that she had some unresolved hind end issues. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), every horse I’ve owned came to me needing rehab of one kind or another, so this did not deter me. We offered to cover her board and farrier bills, contribute to her treatments and diagnostics, and foster her throughout her recovery and rehabilitation. We were told no.

Umpteen emails and a ranch visit later, we decided to foster Eyeball instead. When we met him at HiCaliber, his feet were very long and in dire need of attention (“shredded” is the only way I can describe them), but fortunately that had been rectified by the time he arrived at our barn (May 1, 2016). He was, however, a little underweight, a little banged up – he’s on the bottom of every totem pole – and in serious need of dental work, which came as a surprise. He also had some gait irregularities we were not permitted to have looked at by a vet, but: no massive red flags. We agreed to cover all his expenses other than farrier care (although we ended up paying for that as well as he needed some extra attention).

 

We knew pretty quickly that we were not going to be able to give him up, and decided to adopt him shortly after he arrived. The volunteer, who took us through the process, seemed genuinely happy for us and went above and beyond to get things squared away quickly. Eyeball is now Baloo and is a chubby, sassy little beefcake. This part of the story has a happy ending!

In June 2016, my barn got in touch with HiCaliber and agreed to take on a couple more foster horses for training. HiCaliber would pay board (discounted, $300 a month); training plus daily pasture turnout would be donated. On a visit to the ranch, three horses were presented as hunter/jumper prospects: two smallish stock-type mares (Jojo and Nala, both purchased February 9, 2016) and a very lame gelding with a bowed tendon (Quartz, purchased May 9, 2016).  For obvious reasons, we ruled out Quartz (and to be honest I find it a bit alarming that he was even suggested as an immediate jumping prospect). Jojo was a lovely mover and a great choice. There was some doubt as to whether they would be able to catch Nala, but managed it in the end. Other than her fearfulness, Nala seemed like a good choice as well.

 

I also remembered Nala from my previous ranch visit, as she had been living with Eyeball at the time. She was apparently the only horse who hadn’t picked on him – and she had already earned a spot in my heart for that.

 

On July 10,  2016, Jojo and Nala arrived at our barn.

When the mares were dropped off, it was mentioned that there had been some difficulty catching and loading Nala, which did not come as a surprise given her shyness back at the ranch. I would like to point out that this was over five months after she had been purchased by HiCaliber, and they were still having trouble catching her. (I know that time span may seem small compared to some of HiCaliber’s unluckier “behavioral” or “feral” horses, but at the time we found it very surprising.)

 

Jojo settled in quickly, but it quickly became apparent that loading issues were just the tip of the iceberg with Nala. She was nervous about being approached or handled from her right side, a bit head-shy, resistant to having her feet handled, and – as we found out the first day – her default reaction to any confusing or stressful situation was to rear.

Side note: Shortly before the girls arrived, we were informed that they had been living together since our ranch visit so that they could “bond.” I’m not sure I understand the thinking behind that but as a result, Nala was initially very herd bound as well.

JoJo

One of my worst rides on Nala… so naturally there was someone there from HiCaliber to film it (above)! She was sweet and willing but clearly still very tense – although the backhoe laying and compacting asphalt around the arena probably didn’t help. (For those interested: search #hicalibernala on Instagram to see other early videos of her)”

 

It seemed likely that Nala’s fearful behavior was the product of past trauma or abuse, as she showed no signs of distress when not being handled, and was generally not a spooky horse. However, we did suspect that the issue might have been exacerbated by ulcers. We asked HiCaliber for medication, and they obliged, sending us a month’s worth of Wedgewood compounded omeprazole powder. This did not seem to fully resolve the problem, so I followed it up with a course of the Abler omeprazole granules. That did seem to improve her behavior somewhat.
