This is seriously going to be a flyby kinda post today.  I felt rather than let things pile up and create a backlog for myself, I would drop it all here and prevent a shitload of procrastination and grumpiness in a week or two.  We’ll see how that works out.  Hopefully, I can answer a few questions I’ve noticed in the comments over the last week or so.

I’m sure everybody remembers the permit panic awhile back and major fund-raising effort that ensued.  I believe between all the different fundraisers they raised in excess of 20k.  Of course we know that more than half of that never went towards the permit due to the fact they kinda just left the county hanging and last check, they remain in arrears as far as monies owed.  However, the county, with a few firm nudges from locals, seem to be staying on top of the situation and this is their most recent correspondence with HiCaliber along with the new compliance schedule.  Of course, this may all be a moot point if Manson really does hop on her broom and infest a new dwelling right away.

good luck buyer

Going by this post made by a volunteer in their private group, it would seem that for all intents and purposes, HiCaliber as we know it might finally be over.  It looks like things at the barn are starting to be packed up and readied to stash somewhere.  As of a few days ago, the poor pig is still there and I’m not entirely sure who `Thor’ is.  The website lists Thor as a `Clearwater’ TB with no picture.  That Thor is apparently adopted.  `Thor’ is also the name of one of JonASSthan’s horses that he adopted from HiCaliber a few years ago.  His original name was Whisper and he is on their website under that name.  Given the fact that JonASSthan appears to have swapped out his scissors for gloves and now slings hay for a living, it wouldn’t be a huge stretch to think that he probably can’t afford his horses either.  That’s just speculation though since we know that Manson has does like her `projects’ that the village never really gets to meet.

Here is poor Braveheart  It appears he’s got some filling in his left hind and we can guess that maybe he’s one of those horses that need some attention from the farrier.  It doesn’t look like anybody has bothered to groom the poor horse in forever.  Remember when Manson scooped him up for $1 despite the fact there was lots of interest in him?  She claimed she only took him to help place him and was going to donate the money she made back to the rescue.  How’s that working out for you, Manson?  It sure as hell, didn’t work out too well for Braveheart.

These are some of Manson’s horses.  The fence is still broken and the one feeder is not looking all that healthy either.  I know that we’ve had pictures going back weeks showing the same broken fence and it seems nobody can be arsed to even jury-rig it together.  I guess everybody left is too busy putting the oxygen on themselves first or something.

Some more pics of some random inmates that remain at the ranch.  I cannot figure out why poor Shasta is still there or Legacy either.  Again, lots of filth and lack of grooming is evident.  Business as usual at the feed lot.

As promised, here is a copy of the court papers Mags served on WordPress.  The email from them is basically an automated one and I’ve since had more personal communications with them where the Anti-SLAPP law was discussed.  Maggot should really look that up, but even so, what she is asking for still won’t tell her who I am.  It might tell her various airports I’ve been in, maybe even a coffee shop or two, but it won’t get her any closer to who I am.  Proxy server, Mags.  Look it up.

I think this might be a more appropriate form for Mags to file. She certainly seems bothered for somebody that continually claims not to read my blog or care what I say.  in fact, Maggot claims that nobody reads here so there is that too.  Personally, I don’t need or want an apology from her when this all shakes out.  I have other plans.

margaretrant

Here we have a bit of a throwback screenshot.  This was Mags talking to Maria Borell on social media.  Mags, the `professional journalist’ talking to the subject of her award-winning article.  Funny how she talks about multiple judgements considering her own financial situation *cough*bankrupt*cough*.  Don’t get me wrong, I think Maria is pond scum for what happened with her horses, but the fact that Mags can work up outrage over 43 horses and then turn a blind eye and defend the countless incidents of abuse, neglect and needless killing at HiCaliber is jaw dropping.  Don’t get me started on the bully stuff.

Here we have Mags still on the Dina Hate Train and this time she’s commiserating with none other than Randi Collier, who also happens to be a kill pen dipper.  Poor Mags isn’t up to speed enough on the slaughter pipeline or rescue to realize what’s wrong with kill pen dipping.  How do I know this?  Because her BFF dips kill pens too and according to Mags, she even went along on a trip to Kaufman last year.  I find it funny that Mags thinks anybody who donated to Dina has a right to know what happened to the horses, but nobody that donates to HiCaliber has that same right.  Again with the bullying.  How come everybody that disagrees with Maggot is a bully, but she can literally go off on people and that’s all in the name of whatever it is she calls it that sees her parked on Facebook every waking hour.

I know many of you are upset about the last-ditch grifting that is going on.  It’s kinda funny that they have two outstanding bills that are exactly $1500, no?  It’s almost like that’s a first and last month’s rent.  Having said that, grown assed people can give their money to whomever they want.  As frustrating as it is to watch, let it go.  It’s noted, documented and sent on to where it needs to be.  While I’m not holding my breath for her to actually vacate that property willingly, it does seem like we’re looking at the end of HiCaliber.  That being said, there are miles to go before we sleep.  Until next time…

I’m going to try to keep this as short as possible today.  I’ll leave the epic and self-serving posts to Manson.  I think I’ll leave the empty promises to her as well.  Updates that never happen, vets that are never called, etc. etc.  What I do have today is some brief HiCaliber stuff to update on and then a few other things that are somewhat related but not really.  Is that as clear as mud?  Read on!

amv

I’m sure you’ve all read the incredibly long and self-involved tha post Manson put up on the HiCaliber page last week.  I won’t bother to repost it in its entirety here, but there are some things worth talking about other than the fact that she’s so lazy she leaves the garbage on the floor for somebody else to pick up.  We also don’t need to highlight that, by her own admission, she was in such a drug induced stupor she can’t even hear her own animals ripping it apart or anything else going on.  Nice.  No confirmation on whether or not her housekeeper is still coming twice a week, but let’s hope so.  I’ve seen the post rehashed over and over, including her grossly understated numbers on her own personal hoard herd.  What I’m mostly concerned with is that a number of people reached out suggestions, offers and moral support.  Of course, those things don’t buy you manicures and even though the village ponied up nearly $400, the cash didn’t flow like the good old days.  I guess that’s what happens when you shake the money tree once too often.

Here are just two examples of the word play by Manson that amounts to lying.  No, the ASPCA probably haven’t offered to take the horses, but the San Diego Humane Society has and have also publicly stated they are prepared to step in and have a more than weekly presence at the ranch.  Then you have Manson claiming she has no debt.  This is what you would call a lie of omission.  She may well have no personal debt on paper right now since she filters everything through the rescue which currently has a LOT of debt right now.  She also had two bankruptcies in 2014 so there is that too.

Manson promised updates and a list of adoptables almost a week ago.  As of this writing, there has been nothing so it was time for some moles to get busy.  These pics were all taken within the last 10 days.  The first two show the barn horses which appear to be Sync and Casper. I’m not entirely sure why they are in the barn, but Casper has been said to have vision issues in the past.

The horses in these pics appear to be Boone and Legacy or at least part of Legacy’s face in the one picture.  Boone still seems to be wearing that filthy bandage on one ankle, but not sure what it’s hiding or if they are just trying to bow him maybe.  The filth in the pens and manure mountains are clearly evident but at least the horses have some shelter for a change.

Here are some other random pics from around the ranch.  There is at least one gray horse that appears thin enough to hang a hat on their hip bones.  Shasta is still there which seems to be the penalty for packing Manson’s ass around on trail rides.  Why hasn’t this mare been adopted yet?  Is she still available?  Who knows?

Even though they are not available for adoption, these are the Manson horses, including poor Chrome and his shredded fly mask.  Braveheart is still in the ranch and in her herd despite her claims she only adopted him to help place him.  You can read that back 87 more times and it won’t make any sense.  Trust me.  The broken pipe fencing is interesting too given the fact that Rizzo and Meatball’s injuries.  Speaking of which…

updates

After collecting over $1000 for the treatment of the injured horses, Manson has flat-out refused to provide updates or even come clean on who the injured horses are.  I find this odd for a number of reasons.  She claims not to read the `hater’ pages or this blog or even screen shots from the same, yet she somehow knows people are questioning whether a vet sewed up Rizzo.  For some reason Manson’s internet only works when she’s posting on her new Alphatwat Commune page or when she’s posting under one of her alternate profiles.

hayload.PNG

The good news is they are still getting hay delivered.  There was a brand new load on the drive way just a few days ago.  I am not certain if this was billed or cash and carry, so we could be in for another crisis post about the horses going hungry as we get closer to the move out date.  More on that anon.

I’m sure you all remember the pregnant mare with cancer that turned out to be not pregnant and or have cancer.  Luckily for her, she was a rescue transfer recently but not before some questionable updates by HiCaliber. The pic of her in the pen is courtesy of a mole and I had that in my last post.  The other two pics of her neck wound were from the update Manson posted of her right before she ended up going to the other rescue.  Yes, her teeth had been done when she got to her new home, but the neck wound was not quite the same.

lily neck

This is what the mare, now named Lily’s, neck wound looked like the day she arrived at TIER.  This raises a few questions for me; mainly how long was she really at HiCaliber and when was that update really done?  Why was it necessary to lie and deceive other than the mare’s wounds clearly got much worse since she was `rescued’ by HiCaliber.  Thankfully, she’s in a good place now and under the care of a 100% vet.  You can follow her progress on TIER’s Facebook page.

As much as it irks me to do so, we need to address some of Mags’s antics as of late.  As most of you know, she’s one of the more vocal cockblockers as it pertains to stopping the abuses at HiCaliber.  Nobody is entirely sure why that is other than maybe it’s because she didn’t get to break the story and her feelers go hurt.  Thankfully, her efforts have mostly had the effect of flies buzzing around a picnic table.  Hella annoying but they really don’t stop you from having your meal.  Know what I’m sayin?  Anyhow, many of us `haters’ have been accused of dragging Manson’s kids into things even though I have seen very little of that.  I’ve seen concern for them voiced, but by and large, people mostly leave them out of things even when Manson exploits them in her fundraising efforts.  Not so for Mags.  Without any actual knowledge and despite never having actually met Manson or her spawn, she’s trashing the father of the boy and then oversharing about her own family sitch,  WTH?  It is probably safe to assume that Mags’ info comes from Angrid, if not Manson herself, as those seem to be her HiCaliber connections.  Of course getting the story straight doesn’t really seem to be a thing for Mags.

maggot

Many of you know that Mags wrote a little piece on the half-brother of Zenyatta being found at auction in not so great shape.  She’s been self promoting it all over likely in hopes of another honorable mention certificate or something.  I think that’s probably the equivalent of a participation ribbon considering you have to submit your own work in the first place, but that’s an issue for another day.  We’re certainly used to Mags turning a blind eye to facts and proof as far as the HiCaliber saga goes but apparently that carries over to her professional career too.  She clearly stated in her article that Zenyatta’s sister, Balance was a Breeders Cup Distaff winner.  That is categorically false information and she was obviously called on it.

maggotedit

As you can see, Mags edited out her false information.  Unfortunately she seemed to be stuck on the cliché `bluest of  racing blood’ statement and left that part in there.  Maybe she thinks it ads some flavor to her grade school book report style of writing. The perplexing part of the misfire was that it was a relatively easy fact to check.  Anybody can run a horse’s name through Equibase and get their stats.  I would call it sloppy journalism but even that is a stretch. The whole `story’ actually broke on the OTTB Connect Facebook page and was available to anybody to write and follow up on.  Not much digging or investigative skills at play here.  Investigating and digging doesn’t seem to be a thing with Mags either though.

This is the part that really isn’t much to do with HiCaliber aside from Mags.  Dina Alborano is a kill pen dipper that kinda burst onto the scene this past year.  Her `big saves’were eerily reminiscent of the OTTB20 debacle and even people who didn’t follow that particular mess had some serious concerns.  I strongly urge people to read up on exactly what the issues are and how it’s all unfolded  here.   Naturally, Mags was originally Dina’s biggest supporter and spent a lot of time on Facebook singing her praises and supporting her.  I actually hadn’t even seen these screen shots until recently but clearly I was on Mags mind.  At least I think I was.  Maybe it was JM on her mind thinking it was me.  It’s all so confusing and could give a person an identity crisis when they are constantly being told they are somebody they are not. Mostly I’m offended that she thinks I’m blonde.  Not that there is anything wrong with being blonde, it just doesn’t really suit my skin tone.

Flash forward to the present and Mags has become a Dina hater.  The very same person she was proud to know and so staunchly defended.  I’m thinking a lot of this has to do with the fact that so many industry heavy hitters have spoken out against Dina’s organization but it clearly shows that Mags doesn’t quite gather all the facts before she goes off on something or supports an organization.  Not surprising in the least given whose word she claimed changed her opinon of HiCaliber *cough*JennyEarhart*cough*.  If Mags truly was concerned about the welfare of these horses, and given her recent behavior, she would stand down and let the real horsemen and women handle this. Given her past praises and support of Dina, her involvement at this point is a detriment to what true advocates are trying to accomplish.

borellhorses

Somebody should ask Mags what her hands on involvement with the Borell horses was.  From what I understand, she didn’t even bother to go see them when she went to Kentucky to pick up her prize money.   For sure she didn’t clean any stalls, brush or anything.  I’m also fairly certain that Maria Borell has yet to answer for what she has done or even been arrested.

Apparently self-awareness is not a thing with Mags either.  At least she brings the comedy whether she means to or not. Let’s move on…

criminal

I’ve had this in my inbox for a few days.  To be honest, I wanted to sit on it until we could get it all confirmed but since it’s being loudly whispered about, here it is.  I would caution people not to get too excited about this.  Given the dates involved and the fact that the charges are against Manson as an individual, this is likely nothing to do with the AG or much more than traffic violations or unpaid fines.  I feel like such a fun ruiner for even saying that, but it is what it is.  I hope I’m wrong.

As I leave things this week, we are still waiting for updates on which horses need adopting.  While Manson creates the sense of crisis that has worked so well to raise funds in the past, it’s not gone unnoticed that she hasn’t lifted a finger towards finding the remaining horses homes.  The horses only really get mentioned to further her agenda.  While we’re at it, what ever happened to those skinny and battered horses she posted about nearly a month ago?  With only minimal funds raised, they seemed to have vanished like a fart in the wind.  No other rescues in Manson’s area have reported being called about them either.  Why aren’t the village demanding to know where they are and what happened?  I really wish I had the answers to all these questions.  Hopefully, the next few weeks will bring those answers but I won’t be holding my breath.  Stay the course though.  Then end is in sight.

So, I’ve spent the better part of the last ten days sitting on my hands.  As I’ve mentioned ad nauseam, I’m tired.  Tired of the fuckery, tired of the drama and just tired overall.  My attention has been gradually shifting to more hands on advocacy and this HiCaliber stuff is getting old.  So, when they recently produced pictures of at least one badly wounded horse, I figured I would sit back and see how it all shook out.  Would Manson come clean with the deets?  I’m sure you all know the answer.  Luckily for those of you that are dying to know or at least confirm your suspicions, I’m going to give you the update that Manson won’t.  Y’all know the drill by now…buckle up!

wounds

 

To rehash what most of you are already aware of, almost two weeks ago, Manson posted about two horses that were severely injured at the ranch, complete with graphic pictures.  It appears that one was a chestnut and the other was a bay with neither of them having heads apparently.  The post accompanying these pictures was rather carefully worded.  They did add the donation button to the post and made mention that a vet was tending to the horses.  Strange then that they posted the wounds crawling with flies and said they would let us all know about what the `vet’ thought about what caused the wounds if he was already there and tending to them.  Wouldn’t what happened be one of the first things discussed?  Also, notice that they never specifically asked for vet bills for these two horses.  They asked for money to pay off their vet bills in general.  That part is important.

 

Because Manson was deliberately vague about what caused these injuries, the village idiots dawned their tinfoil beanies and whipped out their monocles and supplied their best theories as to what happened to these two horses.  Dogs, hybrid coyote dogs, haters, haters with dogs, big cats, bears, oh my!  I was actually somewhat disappointed that nobody brought up Bigfoot or maybe a chupacabra just to round things out although somebody did ask if a large rodent did this.  Perhaps one of Manson’s bra rats did it? The possibilities are endless!

 

The very next day and after raising over $1000, we were all treated to an update with one picture of one horse being shown.  For the first time in memory, Manson claimed to be unable to upload videos or any other pictures.  Perhaps this one picture was enough as the stitch job on this poor animal appeared to have been done by Ed Gein.  (Maybe don’t Google that if you have delicate sensibilities).  Immediately, there were questions as to who could have done this and why there wasn’t a drain placed as would normally be the case with such a massive wound.  Thankfully, we had Skeletor to not only explain that in lieu of an a Penrose drain, there was an open drainage `area’, but in defiance of the laws of gravity, the drainage `area’ is in the middle of the wound rather than the bottom.  Maybe physics is only for more than 30% vet or something?  I’m thinking the same applies to basic anatomy as we witnessed the coining of `pectoral cavity’ as well.

 

It did not go unnoticed that neither of the horses’ faces were shown in any of the posts.  Initial requests of which horses they were went ignored but then we had some of the loyal foot soldiers get involved and float their own theories as to why these injured animals appeared to be in the witness protection program.  The answers ranged from the rude to ridiculous and that is where things remain as far as the HiCaliber pages goes.  Thankfully, there are still boots and birds at HiCaliber so I can share who the horses that are injured are.

 

 

 

As will come as no surprise to anybody that has been following this shit show for any length of time, the horses that were hurt are privately owned.  The worst of those being Rizzo.  Rizzo was purchased by HiCaliber back in April and quickly snatched up by Manson for $1 as soon as she figured out he was already broke and papered.  He was promptly shifted over to Bang Bang Becky’s farm to `grow up’ and there he remained until the great break up of last year.  Since then he has been unadopted and then quickly readopted as Manson appeared to have been attempting to hide how many personal and project horses she actually has.  The other horse that was injured is said to be named `Meatball’ and there is not a lot of information on this horse other than he is likely an OTTB and another Manson project horse.  Rizzo’s sutures are said to be mostly broken open and he stands in a stall with very little shavings.

link

Meanwhile, in the private groups, Manson’s internet was working just fine.  She claimed that Link was also attacked and told her minions that Fish and Game is now involved and thinking this is the work of a large cat.  For those of you that don’t know, Link is a goat.  A rather nasty one from many reports, but still a goat and it’s highly unlikely that he would have survived a `large cat’ attack.  He is in the barn, but has no visible injuries from what I am told.

 

 

Naturally, it was easy enough to follow up on whether or not these incidents were reported and if, in fact, a biologist had been assigned to look into this and what possible plan they would have to put together.  With that being said a concerned resident of Valley Center recalled that Robin Parks had recently given a presentation hosted by `Friends of HellHole Canyon. This resident reached out to see about a possible wild animal attack in Valley Center.  Robin Parks was not aware of any such report and suggested that CA Fish and Wildlife should be contacted to see if a report was filed and what its status was.  Mr. Parks also offered to consult with one of the leading experts in California, Dr. Winston Vickers of UC Davis.  He was provided with the photos that HiCaliber had shared of the injured horses.  After consulting with Dr Vickers, the consensus was that the injuries to the horses were not caused by a mountain lion or coyote and were likely from a pole, fence or tree.  Further, California Fish and Wildlife responded that there was not enough evidence to support a depredation permit and had closed the matter almost immediately.
Also, just for the sake of clarity and education, these are pictures of an actual and confirmed mountain lion’s paw prints along with a cast of one.  These were not from anywhere near HiCaliber but they are in an area populated by horses and ponies and not a single one has been attacked or otherwise injured.  The paw prints are large, so if you truly were looking around an area a horse was known to be injured in, they would be kinda hard to miss.
amberlee

 

Now that we have established that the injuries to Rizzo and Meatball were not a result of a wild animal attack, I thought it would be interesting to show the actual state of some of the pens at HiCaliber within the last week.  If you notice, the one pen is actually the one Manson keeps her personal horses in and not only is there pipe fencing, it is all busted up.  This picture is less than a week old.  I guess Amberloser didn’t bother to waltz her ass down to Pyramid if she really was at the farm.  It’s also important to note that they are in the process of tearing down portable pens and shelters so horses are being juggled around.  Rizzo was down in vineyard at some point in the recent past.  As most of us realize, new horses in a group means new pecking orders and some squabbles.  The injury on the bay horse does appear to be from a kick or blunt force. At this point, I’ve pretty much accepted that we’ll never get a straight or honest answer from HiCaliber so the entertainment value is in watching them dodge the questions.
mansondogs
It was also interesting that Manson went out of her way to point out her dogs just so happened to be spending a rare evening inside.  I found this a weird thing for her to bring up considering nobody even suggested they had anything to do with it.  What I have heard is that Manson’s faux service dog, the parking lot German Shepherd, is somewhat unruly and a bit ignorant around livestock.

 

Apparently, animals getting out is not uncommon at HiCaliber but Manson actually getting off her ass to catch them is.  Not sure about the rest of you but `dark’ isn’t really an excuse not to take care of your livestock.  Why have people living there if you have to wait for a volunteer to come along and take care of business?
grey horse
I notice everybody has been asking for updates on the maybe pregnant with cancer, maybe not pregnant with cancer grey mare that appeared at the ranch recently.  I wish I had more to tell you other than this pic is only a few days old and she’s standing there not in quarantine.  That’s Shasta right next to her.  No word if a vet has seen her yet.
romance not crosstied (2).jpg
rom
I apologize for this pic being blurry.  That’s what happens when it is taken stealth though.  This is Romance in her stall at HiCaliber.  If you recall, it was mentioned in the last post that she was suffering from a severe pelvic fracture.  They said the vet had said to keep her cross tied so she doesn’t lay down. Not surprisingly she is not being kept cross tied and appears to be in a lot of pain according to a few in person accounts.  Her right hip is said to be`caved in’.  This mare was supposed to move to Amanduh’s and is also privately owned.  She had been at HiCaliber for a long time and was likely hurt being mishandled maybe even during loading.  I find it sad that as trigger happy as Manson is when a horse does have a chance, She seems perfectly fine with allowing this mare to suffer on her watch.
**********UPDATE*************
romanceupdate.jpg
This was sent in just after I originally made this post.  I’m glad the mare is no longer suffering but this was all so senseless.  I have no idea why she was so emaciated other than her suffering was prolonged.  RIP Romance.  #sayhername
alphamarellc
Well, we may not know where Manson is planning to move to just yet, but we at least know for sure now that she is looking to monetize her alphamare bullshit.  I don’t know what this means or what the ultimate plan is but it seems that is worth keeping an eye on.  Perhaps her new website will provide some clues.  You can find that here.
judgement
I know most of you know about HiCaliber losing its case against some former fosters this week.  I’m just posting the judgement amount so people have it.
hicaliber horse.jpg
I think that about covers the most recent updates or at least what I see people asking about the most.  I don’t understand why Manson lies about things that are so easily fact checked.  What especially confuses me is that she bothers to lie at all.  The remaining village idiots are die-hard and probably would still send their social security checks even if she did come clean and say it was for her own horses.  Instead there are these deliberately misleading posts designed to shake people down for even more.
One of our readers kindly did up this diagram of a HiCaliber horse using their best terminology.  The very misused terminology that is one of the biggest `tells’ when they lie.  I’m not sure about the rest of you, but it’s time for them to just go away.  They can go make Alphabitch Commune happen and leave living, breathing animals alone.  I won’t follow or care as long as animals aren’t involved. Less than a month to go…

I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic lately.  Maybe it’s because it’s Thursday or maybe it’s just because with the attempted rebranding of Manson and her village idiots, it seems like a really good time to look back on some of my personal favorite hypocrisy outbursts from those wacky animal exploiting grifters.  Either way, that’s going to be the bulk of what we’re covering today but, as always, there is a few little update nuggets and current events we’ll deal with as well.  In fact, that’s probably the best place to start so those of you that suffer Manson induced PTSD, don’t have to relive some of her greatest hits.

som1

I’m sure everybody knows by now that Manson has distanced herself from all things HiCaliber aside from the donations that continue to trickle in.  Much to the delight and sexual arousal of her koolaid drinkers, she has created a new village for them to attach themselves to while neglecting their families and hiding out from life in general.  Alphamare Village, complete with its own hashtag, appears to be the new place to indoctrinate her acolytes before monetizing this brand new shit show.  Apparently the theme of the new group is kindness and empowerment, but it seems that only applies to the confines of the closed group and not everywhere else or to alternate profiles.  It’s truly mind-boggling to watch somebody just bleed it all out there about their husband cheating on them *cough*nancysugartits*cough* and then run straight over to hate pages, the same ones Manson has asked them to stay off of, calling people losers and dumbasses among other things.  If anything, it seems that it’s some weird competition who can be the most `broken’ in the Alphamare Village while putting their bully boots on for the outside world. Of course, Manson’s alternate profile is all over the same hate pages as well, so the takeaway I get from this is not to be a drama seeking bully under your own profile.

Charger was the latest victim to be drug back to the ranch to be shot in the face.  Despite The Equine Welfare Fund offering their services, which include the cost of euthanasia, Manson elected to keep Charger alive for a few days before doing the deed herself as if there was ever any doubt that’s exactly how it was all going to go down.  The last we saw of him was a post of him laying down (likely drugged) with somebody’s boots in his face and the village idiots were told he was `enjoying some love’ before his execution.  You know, because nothing says love like a stranger’s stinky boots in your face when you’re either so drugged or in so much pain you can’t pick yourself and get away.  RIP Charger.  #sayhisname.

The latest money-maker is sure to open the purse strings.  A few days ago Manson told us of the pregnant mare who was filled with cancer and about to be dropped off at HiCaliber.  Even though she never got any donations for her initially,  Manson ignored offers of help and manifested the mare a few days later.  It was posted as though she showed up mid day on a Thursday,  but we’re supposed to ignore the sunset behind her in one of the pictures and now we come to find out she may not actually have cancer or be pregnant.  The wound near her eye looks suspiciously like a summer sore with some kind of scald on her face.  I’m sure if there were melanomas under her tail, we’d know about it by now because Manson has enjoyed photographing cancer vags in the past.  Naturally HiCaliber has requested the donations be made to the general fund for feed and expenses so that the money  doesn’t have to follow the mare should she literally dodge the bullet at HiCaliber and end up in a truly safe home.  Leopard, spots and all that sort of thing…

As far as I know, Legacy remains at HiCaliber or at least was there up until a week or so ago.  That means he’s been there well over a year.  If you recall, he was Romney Faye’s special boy, or at least he was when she was trying to raise extra funds while in Louisiana and he walked into camera range. I’m not exactly sure if she ever laid a hand on him or acknowledged him after getting back to California though.  Anyhow, he was offered not just a good home, but the perfect home a few months ago.  I think the fee offered was more than reasonable but Manson and Amanduh felt that he was worth more, so there was no deal and Legacy remains on the feed lot.  I wonder if it has dawned on any of them that they have probably spent more in feed on him than what the price difference would have been by now.  Or maybe I should say if it was a normal and properly run outfit they would have put more into him in feed and care than the price difference by now.  Great business minds there at HiCaliber.

The birth of `Bella Cardwell’ is on everybody’s radar lately.  This person, complete with what is clearly a HiCaliber horse in their profile pic has been extremely active on many SoCal groups lately.  While there have been some strategic decoy posts mentioning a husband and not liking snakes, the rest has been pure Manson right down to Bella’s support of HiCaliber and following all the other rescues that Manson regularly stalks.  I think what initially pinged most people’s radar was `Bella’s’ claim that she has 25 to 30 `family’ horses.  Strangely, that’s the same number of horses that HiCaliber claims to be keeping.  Most families I know don’t have that many personal horses and they also know the exact number they do have rather than ballparking it.  I guess the number is fluid with the Cardwell family.  Could this all be a coincidence and we’re all just singling out an innocent person?  Read on…

rats

Wow, what are the odds that Bella and Manson are both looking at aquariums to raise mice in? Such a coincidence that Manson spent one of her latest live feeds with rats crawling around in her bra.  If I had to guess, I’d say it’s probably about the same odds that Bella and Manson are both looking for the same rental situation in the same area.  Still, that’s not all the similarities these `two’ have.

bellamichelle2

bellamichelle3

Wow!  Bella and Manson both went trail riding at the same place on the exact same day!  It’s almost like they’re living parallel lives or something.  Maybe even in the same skin.  I wonder if Bella knows Monique Gallindo or Sandra Milstein?  How is it that Bella claimed to be out of state yet she wants to know when a local trail closes for the day and has been putting her ISOs out on local to HiCaliber sites.

tear down time

It seems the dispersal of tack has already begun.  I’m sure they’re logging in all the money made from the sale of tack and it’s all going towards the actual rescue horses instead of the `family’ horses.  It’s funny how they never mentioned this stream of income when they were ringing the crisis bells in their recent begging campaigns just like they neglect to mention that all that money donated via Facebook eventually does get released along with their frozen PayPal funds.  Instead, we had Manson inform us that just because there are far fewer horses, it costs the same amount to feed them for some reason.  It didn’t make much sense to me either but then again, I never did have much taste for Koolaid. No word on the ultimate destination for the tore down pipe corrals will be.

worms

Nice to see the conditions for the remaining inmates at HiCaliber continue to be substandard and disgusting.  You would think with the reduced number of horses, that one of the residents could get off their ass and maybe do some of this work themselves rather than issue their instructions on Facebook pages.

Does anybody remember Palomar?  We first talked about him here.  To make a long story short, they purchased him with money donated from a local church and then put up a post about him that was dripping with racist references.  When asked by the very people who donated those funds to remove those references, Manson refused.  As for Palomar, he came with at least one bowed tendon and was bounced around between foster homes/adoptive situations before finally landing with Maloree, the cannabis queen.  He is now for sale for $2000 (recently reduced to $1500).  Going by the pic she has posted of him, he has not thrived under her care and 2k is a fairly hefty price tag for a horse with old bows.  I guess contracts only get enforced when it isn’t one of Manson’s close and personal pals.  Here’s hoping this horse finally lands softly and with somebody who knows wtf they are doing.

I’m posting this for no other reason than comic relief.  In all my years, I have never heard of or used a `tapping stick’ in conjunction with horses.  I don’t actually even own a whip anymore as I have no use for them, but I’m pretty sure a `tapping stick’ is either an aboriginal instrument or those things you played in elementary school music class when you weren’t lucky enough to get assigned the triangle.  I realize that a popper is attached on the end of whip, but since this is Manson it could easily be amyl nitrate she is referring to.  Just so much going on with these posts.

romance

This post disturbed me for a number of reasons.  For those of you not keeping score, Heather recently adopted Romance (JC name – Icee Cheaspeake)  and is said to have jumped ship to Team Amanduh.  Romance was purchased back in the fall of 2016, so she’s been kicking aroundHiCaliber for a while.  Assuming this is the mare Heather is speaking about, it raises some questions for me.  How did this mare suddenly turn up with a `pretty severe’ pelvic fracture?  Did it happen at HiCaliber and they moved her in this condition or did they crunch her trying to load her?  Either scenario is not good but wishing this mare all the best.  I sure hope one of those gunsels is smart enough to keep a close watch on her feet since founder is very real side effect when they are offloading onto one side as it sounds like this mare is doing.

facebook

I found this statement from Manson about not having a personal Facebook to be somewhat bizarre even for her.  By all accounts, she is obsessive in her use of social media and basically lives on her phone.  According to Facebook, she’s been a member since 2009 which is 9 years by my calculations, but I’m only a 10% mathematician. That’s the thing about liars though; they lie about shit that just doesn’t matter.  Of course this is not counting all her fake profiles since that’s probably not `personal’ in her mind.

I would like somebody, anybody, to explain to me how somebody that had not one, but two bankruptcies within the last 4 years had a `shit ton’ of money to give anybody.  This is the same person that hasn’t had a real job in many years and no post secondary education or marketable skills beyond grifting and selling stanky underwear.  I’m sure she tossed that statement out as it is the excuse she is going with to explain all the personal expenses on the rescue accounts  Even if that was the case, which would be a huge stretch, it would still be commingling of funds which is still going to get her in deep shit.  Maybe even deeper than the shit that she forced all those animals to stand in for so long.

ead

This brings us to the throwback portion of the post.  As Manson tries to claim she is all about the love and that everybody outside her village are just big meanie head haters who just bully her for no reason, it’s important to look back on some of her own actions and statements.  You know, just for posterity and all.

These little bottles of Fireball were left on the driveway of one of Manson’s frequent targets.  I’m sure many people think it’s funny or even wonder what the big deal is.  The big deal is that children live here and it wasn’t just friendly pranking.  How do we know it was Manson?

That’s right.  Manson and Bang Bang Becky drove over an hour to leave their little calling card at another rescue.  Still think it was all in good fun?

This was the same rescue she left her calling card at.  A rescue she used to work with and openly admire.  While I have never seen that rescue retaliate or even really mention HiCaliber, the founder has been a frequent target of Manson’s.

moomoobuckaroo

This is Manson still obsessing over the founder of the rescue and apparently body shaming is perfectly fine as long as Manson and her village idiots are doing it.  That’s not even to mention the great big ole glass house they were all casting their stones from.

xmarksthespot

For somebody that claims she feels her safety is compromised, she certainly thinks it’s funny when somebody else might be in real peril.  Always funny to joke about shooting somebody, no?

tg

Here we have Manson engaging in some more name calling and lying.  The fact is, she never stops thinking of Trish.

cooley

I believe this post was made on or around Veteran’s Day.  That part is significant because Manson elected to single out a veteran for her little `Name a Pile of Shit’ fundraiser.  The person in question actually used to be part of Manson’s inner circle and, as far as I can gather, her crime was leaving Manson.  Manson mistakenly thought she was a mole and contributor to this blog (she never was) and proceeded to target her and spread the most vile and disgusting rumors and gossip about her in all corners.  Those members of her Alphamare Village would do well to pay attention to that as Manson will ALWAYS use whatever you confided to her against you.  That’s what she does and no amount of pretending to be all about the love and attempting to be the even trashier version of Nicole Arbour, will change who and what Manson is.

fos

Remember how Manson has whined about being persecuted for doing`rescue’ her way?  For somebody that preaches that she certainly wants to tell other rescues how many they should save and where from.  This was about the founder of yet another rescue that she obsessed over and targeted until they moved out of state.  All that aside, I like what she said about freedom of speech being a 2 way street and it’s all fair play when you’re responding to `behavior’.  The last year and more of this blog has been responding to her behavior and choices. See how that works?

Here Manson tells us about the secret of her success while she heaves herself up on the proverbial high horse.  Yet, she wonders why people react negatively to her.

 

foodchain

This short live feed was from a closed group that Manson is a member of.  She often employed her high pressure grift tactics during her weekly begging sessions in this group.  I pulled it out for a few reasons.  We know several horses were named after various volunteers and donors in the past but this is the first I’ve seen it in writing that maybe some people were paying for that privilege.  Also, the completely misleading information about slaughter and what those horses were really doing at Ontario is worth noting as well.  Hint: They were never in danger of hitting the American food chain or any food chain.  They were mostly there by prearrangement. Of course if you really have a desire to have a horse named after you it is completely free if you’re a hater.  Just know that said horse will soon be shot in the head.

hatedonating

Even though Romney Faye has jumped back on the Dumbass Darrell train and is currently distancing herself from all things HiCaliber, who could forget about her and her faux Christianity?  We can see in the above screen shot that giving doesn’t go both ways with her.  While she has made a living out of lying and begging for money, she `hates’ donating clothes in good condition to those that are truly needy.  Can’t say that I’m surprised about this.

lucky57

Here we have Romney Faye showing us just how compassionate she is as she discusses a horse named Max that Manson was about to shoot.  She also flaunts their coziness with DeSousa just in case anybody still wondered why it was so hard to get him to do his job when it came to HiCaliber.

lovethisequine

Next we have Manson trolling well-known hate type pages for dirt on the founder of another rescue under the guise of doing due diligence.  Maybe it’s just me, but if I wanted references for somebody under these circumstances I would be asking vets, farriers and actual industry professionals rather than a group that is known for trashing people.  This was from last year and while Manson has since transferred a number of horses to this rescue, she has repeatedly sicked her village idiots on the rescue and its founder and the harassment continues to this day.

noshelter

Not required, but probably the humane thing to do, no?  For somebody that claims such a connection to horses, she certainly has very little empathy or compassion for them.

ead

A little example of how polite questions have been responded to in the past.

snuggles

I know I originally posted this screen shot over a year ago and it has been widely shared since then.  It still seems to be making the rounds.  However, for me, it means a bit more than face value.  It was my own personal tipping point with HiCaliber.  Way back in the early days of this blog, I actually thought they did decent work on the surface.  Back then, I was more focused on Sue Wallis and her fuckery than all things rescue,  so I wasn’t watching them all that closely.  HiCaliber came onto my radar with the Starlight drama and I never really gave them much thought beyond that other than the odd time I used to look in on their Facebook page because who doesn’t love a good rescue story?  I started feeling like things weren’t adding up with the volume of euthanasias and stories being told and then Snuggles happened.  Despite how Manson and Romney Faye spun it, they sent that horse to slaughter.  He may have been the only one of the ones sent to Misner that was recovered in this instance though.  He wasn’t mean, afraid or angry at all.  He was ignorant and unhandled and Manson had no compunctions about sending him to slaughter via Misner.  Going by this screen shot, he was not the only horse, but he was the only one recovered in the last minute trade back (Erik the horse was involved in this too).  That’s when I really decided to take a closer look and then the Slaughter 11 happened which was a complete farce.  Finally, when they dipped into Louisiana, she stepped a little too close to home for me and I wrote that first post.  I’m sure the Louisiana shit would have come across my radar regardless, but thanks to Snuggles, I already had months and months of information compiled and contacts made.

 

financials

As if Manson’s own big mouth and ego don’t provide enough red flags, we have these financials (thank you to the reader that put this together and also sent it to me because I couldn’t figure out the links).  Keep in mind, these are for only up until the end of 2016 as the 2017 financials are not in and likely never will be.  I’m not sure what vets were paid nearly a quarter million dollars in 2016 but I have my suspicions who at least one `vet’ was and it wasn’t a 100% one.  The hauling fees where we know that Bang Bang Becky was at least one of the haulers being `paid’ as well as Cheech who was living there for free seemed excessive.  Where did they really go other than back and forth to auction and entertaining themselves on trail rides? The training and boarding fees?  They didn’t send that many horses to Buzz so was Manson dipping there too?  It’s craziness and if anybody honestly thinks that it’s only because of `haters’ that the AG and other agencies are doing audits then they are dumber than I gave them credit for.

Of course all of the above is merely a sampling of why there is so much animosity towards Manson.  As she continues to climb up on the cross and play the victim card, the rest of us remember exactly why we’re all still here.  The horses and other animals that had the misfortune of finding themselves at HiCaliber.  The suffering, the needless deaths, the exploitation, all fueled the uprising against HiCaliber while Manson’s arrogance and malignant personality made it impossible to coach or help her turn things around.  She ran off every single knowledgeable person that cottoned on to what was really going on at HiCaliber. There are lots of people in this world I find hateful and irritating, but I tend to avoid them.  The difference with this situation is that those animals had no choice and they had no voice, so I lent them mine and many other advocates did the same.  Because the greatest predictor of the future is past behavior, I’m not willing to grant Manson a Mulligan and let her do this again.  Ever.  Warm up your voice, Manson.  It’s over.

Well, it looks like vacation time for me is well and truly over.  Not only did Manson slither out from under her rock recently, she must have drunk the blood of a unicorn or something because she seems to be trying to make a comeback under the guise of being authentic. Either that or she’s started a new roll of word of the day toilet paper and authentic came up.  She uses that word a whole bunch these days.  Sadly, the more things change, the more they stay the same, so once again it’s time to sort through the lies that have recently fell out of Manson’s lie hole and try to put a little context around them.  I’m going to try to keep this on the shorter side today, but y’all know the drill.  Pull up a seat and pour yourselves a beverage or six.  You also might want to put a helmet so as not to concuss yourselves trying to sort through the fuckery.

phug.PNG

I’m sure everybody with a strong constitution and masochistic streak has heard Manson’s live feed about Linus.  Actually, it was all about her for over 2 hours with only a brief 4 minute or so mention of Linus and how he died according to her.  It kinda sounded like Manson googled up some symptoms and made up a cause of death.  Lucky for her, the Village Idiots are far too stupid to realize that if he had been seen by a 100% vet for a proper intake,  they’d have pulled blood and known then if he was in liver failure rather than several days later.  It seemed Manson was deliberately vague about when the horse actually passed away so this post from one of their volunteers in a private group kinda confirms he was alive and not crashing at noon on that Monday, so they did not spend all day with him crashing like she claims.  It’s likely he died at some point late that night or on Tuesday.  He’s also not the only horse that has died at HiCaliber recently but we’ll get to that in a bit.  Naturally, Linus’s death was not Manson’s fault as she conveniently overlooked the fact she, alone, knew where he was for two weeks before getting off her ass to go get him.  Nobody else ever had a chance to save this horse.

michelle shut up

Hmmm, I wonder if staying off the hate pages includes Manson’s fake profiles and the secret groups?  I’m going to go with probably not on that.   This post was made right around the time of Linus’s death and the ensuing shit show and defection of Big Lick Larkin.   At any rate, I think the window of opportunity of ending this thing with grace has long closed and been boarded up.  I’m also guessing the toxicity only applies to people talking about HiCaliber as Manson has been on local pages making catty comments about a local business and offering her 30% vet opinion on possums as well as inquiring about pies.  Her Facebook/social media break didn’t ever really happen.

tildenandjesse

I know this is old news by now, but for those of you that don’t engage in the Facebook thing and do like to see receipts, it does appear that along with Zory, Barrett and Mac, Amanduh also helped herself to Tilden and Jesse.  That is not counting the horses that Nathalie and Heather have helped themselves to as well.  God help them.

newlocation

It’s certainly not the first time Cammy has spilled the beans inadvertently, but seems she is confirming what has long been suspected.  Not only is HiCaliber not closing down, they are also planning on moving to the new location or at least the hoard herd is.  Officially, Amanduh, Nathalie, Heather and Jesse will be moving to the new ranch, but not sure who else might park a trailer there.  That kinda segues nicely to another thing I’m sure many people are curious about.

granitehills

I know I posted the ad screen shot on the last post.  This is Amanduh’s new digs according to her.  If you look at the link it, the grounds look quite beautiful even if the interior of the house is outdated.  However, as with all things HiCaliber, not all is as it seems  As of July 18th the title to the property has yet to change officially, which puts the proposed August 1st Grand Opening in doubt.  As of a few days ago, there is still a `For Sale’ sign out front along with the realtor lock box.  The departing owner has moved across the country and says the property is sold, so make of all this what you will.

The other thing about the new digs is that the grounds not quite as glamorous as they appear in the sale ad.  There isn’t a lot of turn out and there is zero pasture so the horses of HiCaliber won’t be getting an upgrade other than there isn’t a bazillion guinea fowl shitting all over everything….YET.  No word on which lucky resident get to live in the trailer.

I guess as far as the horses are concerned, the new property will still be better on some levels than the squalor of HiCaliber.  The above pictures are from just this past weekend and while there is definitely a reduction in the number of horses, their living conditions have not improved.  There was at least one horse visible with a body score of around 2.5 and, despite Manson’s claims of daily runs to get hay, there was a large load there on the drive way with two people out feeding, neither of which appeared to be one of the ranch residents.

I thought these comments and conversations from their private groups were kinda interesting.  Unsurprisingly, volunteers are cleaning the stalls for The Manson Family horses and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by others that they don’t seem to pitch in and do their fair share of chores.  We know Manson has been hiding out to avoid process servers, but there is really no excuse for the rest of them despite their protestations that they don’t just sit on their asses.  Many sources from current to past volunteers have stated that actually is the case.  Manson rarely makes an appearence and has never been seen with a manure fork in hand.

Recently, Manson put out the private plea for food and groceries.  On the surface, it seems like there is nothing to pick at here.  That is until you really look at what is being said.  First off, since when is cooking food Manson’s love language?  Maybe ordering food is, but mostly she loves herself.  Then you have her offering to take  pictures of the food for `credibility’.  This is from her inner sanctum and those people are all programmed to not question her so why bring that up unless she has a guilty conscience?  On second thought, maybe it’s a stretch to think she has a conscience at all.  Then you have the admission that her Venmo is now shut down.  Once again, Cammy Rickey steps up to the plate to launder the money for her.  I actually wasn’t going to post this because I felt bad if there truly was a spouse that somebody was losing.  Then there was this update…

miracle

A miraculous recovery and the spouse has morphed into a parent somehow.  Again, no name or further explanation.  Best wishes to whoever it is that is sick and shame on Manson for trying to use it to her advantage yet again.  I’m sure if she could have still used Gofundme, there would have been a campaign on there.

bizdesk

When all else fails, get your drama on.  It’s not really clear why Manson wouldn’t make it out alive.  She has had ample notice to vacate and yet she still insists on gathering animals.  I’m also wondering about the selling off of their shelters, stalls, feeders, buckets, tack etc.  Who gets the money?  Unless every single penny is accounted for and goes to paying off their bills, then there’s going to be an issue.  I’m also reasonably certain that paying Mr. Fancy Sock’s legal fees is not a legitimate use of 501c3 funds.  I guess if anybody wants a $1600 pug or a fake service dog you can contact Manson directly.

noincome

filler1

You know, you can’t have it both ways.  You can’t claim you have no income and then run around with a face full of botox and fillers and weekly manicures.  There is some seriously fucked up priorities at play here and this is also a pretty good example of why people are so pissed.  I don’t give a shit what she wants to do to her face on her own dime.  I give a great deal of a shit when animals are going without and being exploited to further this madness.  As far as her job history, doesn’t she always like to tell everybody that she was an  ACO for many years and how she’s euth certified etc. etc.?  That seems like job history to me and if she doesn’t have good references from her previous employment that is 100% on her.  I’m sure that out of all her remaining village idiots at least one of them has the ability to hire her or vouch for her should she actually grow up and realize that she’s going to have to work for a living.

court

I’ve had a few questions sent to me about Manson’s upcoming court date.  It is a small claims lawsuit that was filed back in May.  The details are at this link.  Basically, it will all go down on August 20th at 8AM.  Maybe.  I wouldn’t be surprised if there wasn’t some crisis or drama that necessitates a postponement.  If not, there is always lying to fall back on, right?

I’m sure I’m not the only one that realizes today is Tuesday and that is skinny horse pick up day for the grifters.  This was actually just the latest of a few `look at the skinny horses that need us’ posts Manson made this past week or so.  She vows to continue to `nurture’ her relationships and continue to shooting horses  Obviously, I’m paraphrasing a bit.  I find it odd that she feels that her calling is to work in the Spanish speaking communities given the fact she doesn’t actually speak Spanish.  However, given the pics she posted along with these latest rounds of threats to keep on shooting horses, I thought I’d break it down as best as I can for everybody as far as where these horses are coming from.  It really won’t come as any surprise.

skinny

This picture caught my eye right away for a number of reasons not the least of which is that this horse is standing in a clean stall with shelter.  How would going to HiCaliber be an upgrade from this situation? The setting also looked really familiar to me.

These pics were from my post back in March.  This was Andrina and she was obviously in the very same place.  She was sore, but rather than doing diagnostics, she was dragged back to the ranch and shot along with Little Bear.  This also appears to be on Salvador’s property as well.

Going by the roof lines and from people that have actually been present at his property, it’s likely the grey horse is at his place as was Andrina.  He has several pen set ups there and tends to hide his worst ones out of sight.

This bay horse may also be at Salvador’s place.  Manson has tried to blank out the buildings that may identify.  That pretty much leads me to believe that it’s a place known to advocates.  The mountains are the same as viewed rom Salvador and the horse kinda fits in with what he usually has to dump in HiCal’s direction.  I’m purely speculating, but there was a thin bay horse in the picture with Dream a few weeks ago.  There is a very remote chance this could be that horse even thinner and sun bleached a few weeks later or it could be an entirely different horse.

nacho.PNG

Then we come to this horse who is not only NOT skinny, but so obviously at Nacho’s house.  The trailer is sticking out there like a sore thumb and this little horse ran through Mike’s auction just the other week for $85 wearing the very same red halter.  He’s not skinny yet.  Manson likes to paint these flippers as impoverished and marginalized.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

nachohouse.PNG

This is Nacho’s house and property.  It’s currently on Zillow with an estimate of around 500k if memory serves.  Again, there have been advocates at his farm and he quite happily showed them around.  His truck and trailer is visible in one of the satellite images as well.

Here are the other horses currently on offer to the village idiots.  Manson is using them to prove how much she is needed.  I’m sure some of the others are at Salvador’s or Nacho’s place and there are other flippers too.  Jose, Marco and all the happy bunch from Ontario.  They all have Manson’s phone number and I’m sure she’s gone through a lot of lotion `cultivating’ these relationships.  The point is that no other rescue is called nor does she refer to other rescues.  These horses are offered to nobody BUT HiCaliber because they know that not only will she pay for them like nobody else will, but she will continue to cover for them.

SDHS

Obviously this situation continue to frustrate.  Thank you to one of the advocates that took the time to ask for some accountability.  While it is great to see that the investigation with SDHS is ongoing, it’s even better to have it in writing that HiCaliber have been reminded to report these abusers.  I know I have asked people not to bombard multiple agencies with frivolous complaints in the past.  This falls outside of that for me.  It’s time to demand that SDHS take some action.  Manson continues to protect the people that are doing this to these horses.  She continues to drag horses home while admitting she may have to give away her children’s pets due to having no place to go.  SDHS has stated they are willing to step in and intervene and perhaps now is the time for that to happen.  How much worse are they going to let things get?

Gatsby died at the ranch recently.  Details are sketchy at best but I am told he died `on his own’ which likely means somebody found his corpse.  He was one of the Louisiana horses and they never really mentioned him a bunch.   Young horses don’t usually just drop dead in their stalls without some kind of event that caused some suffering.  I’m sad that he didn’t make it out alive.  RIP Gatsby  #sayhisname

career

I think this brings everybody up to speed as far as what’s really going on.  None of this is all that surprising if you’ve been following along for any length of time.  Donations are drying up and times are getting desperate.  Still, it hasn’t occurred to Manson, Wrinkles, Skeletor and Trailer Cammy to get jobs.  For some reason, they think they are entitled to all live together with their animals, not work and have other people support them.  I don’t get it.  Nobody but Manson ruined her reputation no matter where she tries to shift blame.  The gravy train dried up.  People saw the light.  Say it however you want, but it’s over.  Well and truly.  I just want to leave y’all with a little clip in honor of Shark Week.  Probably only some of you will get this, but that’s ok.  Watch the right side of the clip and turn your sound up.  Until next time….

I know updates have been few and far between lately.  I’ve always said I wasn’t into rehashing or pointing out the obvious and I’m still not.  While the majority of the moles are still very much in play, I have admittedly felt it best to keep things a bit closer to my vest the closer we get to the end of this shit show.  However, in some ways, this past week or so has felt a bit like old times with the amount of grifting going on and because of this, and also became I’m a giver, I felt like sharing some nuggets and bringing everybody up to speed.  Maybe a lot of what I’m going to share is stuff people have heard whispers about or even guessed as much for themselves, but y’all know I like to bring the receipts when I spill the tea.  Hopefully, I can keep this  on the short and sweet side,  because after more than a year of this fuckery, I’m sure we’ve all got better ways to spend our time.  With that being said, let’s get this party started!

water.JPG

no well

As we roll into summer and extreme heat, the water issue is already starting to crop up.  A few weeks ago the crisis was that the ranch residents might be forced to get off their asses and help with watering their own horses as well as the rescue horses that provide them free living.  This week it was no well at all and bucket hauling to the horses.  What are the odds they were/are getting enough hauled by bucket or that Manson is helping with this?  Considering she has been out on trail rides and `taking meetings’ while making sure her oxygen mask is firmly in place, I’m going to say those odds are pretty long.
phug

As you can see, the remaining inmates at HiCaliber are still standing in their own filth and drinking green slime water.  The easy keepers are holding their weight, others not so much.  No word on if Manson still has her housekeeper and gardener coming in though.

flymaskrequest.PNG

At first glance it may seem nit picky to post their fly mask request.  Given the mountains of shit and filth those horses live in, it stands to reason that flies are likely a huge problem at HiCaliber, even if I’m not entirely sure how they could be going through them.  When you take care of things, they usually last quite awhile, especially fly masks  I have some older than my horses.  I’m not even picking at the people who responded and sent masks.  It sure beats putting money in Manson’s hands. However, as with most things HiCaliber, all was not as it seems.

flymask

I turns out that maybe they didn’t actually need the fly masks, but Manson’s lack of communication with her own team and general laziness means they now have a surplus.  I’m sure that her personal hoard of around a dozen horses will be togged out in the newest and best of the ones sent in.

Speaking of begging for stuff, do you remember how Manson said that some of the horses that have been adopted are still at the ranch and waiting for transport?  It seems that some may be waiting a long time if this fundraiser is anything to go by.  This is a former volunteer who has recently moved to Georgia.  I’m told that her `horse experience’ comes from HiCaliber and that she has adopted a number of horses that remain at HiCaliber.  I question the placement of horses clear across the country and wonder who did the site inspection.  I also wonder where the safety net for these horses is clear across the country should the adoptions not work out.  Mostly, I think if you can’t even afford to haul your horses home as a private owner, then you probably can’t afford the horses. Why not adopt closer to home?  None of this makes sense and none of it has put the best interests of these horses first.

With their self-imposed closing date looming, Manson continues to go drag horses home each week and tap her bottom feeding flipper pals to keep supplying her with horses that she can use to raise funds and show everybody how needed she is.  There is so much wrong with this request post it’s hard to even know where to begin with it.  Let’s start with the claim they have contacted other rescues.  Guess what?  I asked around and not a single rescue in their area received a call about this mare. Her claims that this older mare, with a swayback will go to tripping are ridiculous. This is not a tripping type horse nor would they buy her for dancing.  For damn sure, she’s not a sliding horse either.  That probably isn’t even anatomically possible for her.  Manson attempts to tighten up her lies by admitting she’s not going to go to slaughter for consumption, but then goes off the rails by claiming she could be end up in an illegal slaughter camp or maybe santarias (sic),  like in Florida.  Clearly she’s been reading Richard Cuoto’s stuff for inspiration lately.  Sadly, she doesn’t realize that while Santeria is somewhat active in SoCal, albeit more in Los Angeles, they generally stick to goats, roosters and chickens for their sacrifices and there really aren’t any reports of that activity with horses in the San Diego area at all.  Clearly, Manson has had her crayons out as she has really dug deep to create a sense of exigency (see what I did there?) to inspire what remains of the village idiots to dig deep.  Unfortunately for Manson, you can pretty much drive a Mack Truck through her story…

I gotta say that the post asking for euth assistance kinda gave me a feeling of deja vu initially.  Then I remember it was completely similar to the situation with Mas right down to the distinctive brand on the left hip of `both’ mares.  So, I dug back in my own archives and recalled that there were three mares involved in that particular con, but only two showed up at HiCaliber that I remember.  The horses were at Nacho’s and our stealth mole had been out there to see them in person before they showed up at HiCaliber.  The pictures that Manson posted of the most recent gray mare needing euthanasia was clearly taken on the same property as Mas was at with the other two mares.  If you need to refresh your memory on the lies that went down with that situation, you can do so here.  Manson’s latest post asking for money mentioned she hadn’t been at auction for awhile, yet she always seems to come up with these horses every Tuesday and they keep coming from the usual suspects.  I’m not sure which scenario playing out in my mind is worse; the idea that this might all be completely fabricated and recycled or that this mare has stood for the last 4 months in alleged need of euthanasia.  Either one just goes to show why the sooner Manson gets out of rescue and the horse industry, the better.  Even though they collected over $700 between the Better Unite and Facebook donations, no follow-up on whether this mare has been given to this date and the village idiots know better than to ask.  I’m guessing we will likely never hear another word about her again.

So, everybody’s talking about this post.  It was pretty gross, but I also don’t really get why the massive freak out over it.  Manson has been threatening to kill horses for dollars for a long time.  Maybe not on such a large scale, but every time the village didn’t donate fast enough on a Tuesday, she made mention of just buying the horses to kill because that’s still rescue in her books.  However, this time it was different.  People pushed back.  Maybe they remembered they just got a big load of hay or maybe this whole `we’re closing, but not until we show how much you need us’ debacle has drug on far too long.  Even though the de rigueur party line of  nothing being Manson’s fault was issued and the post went `poof’, haters all across the interwebs braced themselves for the live feed that was sure to follow.

Because of the blowback from yet another `pay up or we start shooting’ post, Manson quickly distanced herself from it.  I’m told that it was ultimately Michelle Parsons who got thrown under the bus for that post, which is neither here nor there because quite frankly she’s been a festering twat and totally deserved it.  Nobody really believed that Manson didn’t at least know all about that post.  Most people smelled her all over it seeing as she’s often made those very same threats when funds were low.  As a results we were all treated to a `poor me’ style post where Manson whined about her grief.  Also, because they realized they had finally banned so many people that it was hurting their bottom line, Manson extended an offer of amnesty and forgiveness to anybody that contacted her directly and apologized for the error of their ways.  All that aside, what I found interesting was her wording, `I cannot personally…I cannot and I will not euthanize our horses..’.  What an interesting choice of words that was peppered with pauses, umms, and her pinholed eyes looking up for inspiration.  It almost makes me think that maybe she’s been ordered or at least advised to stop shooting horses without a vet signing off.  At any rate, the whole drama paid off handsomely for The Manson family as the village dug deep to come up with well over 12k that will  Manson in business for another few weeks at least.  BTW, she mentions killing Aviana in one of the above clips from a few months ago.  I find it interesting that Aviana is listed on their website under `success stories’ as having been adopted.  No wonder her numbers don’t quite match up with the actual numbers.  Aviana isn’t the only one that shouldn’t be listed in success stories either but that’s another issue for another time.

I was sent this screen shot a few days ago.  Despite Manson’s damage control and post deletions, there has been a real and genuine concern that she may try to shoot herself out of this situation at some point.  Considering how the original post threatened to shoot all the remaining horses so that they wouldn’t have to go to the Humane Society and be euthanized, I’m guessing that relations between them and Manson is getting a bit frosty.  Good on whoever it was that followed up with this because sooner or later, maybe these people will do their jobs and intervene.  At least we know that they are aware and keeping an eye on things.

Remember Emlyn?  The little `orphan’ filly that they turned down a rescue to rescue transfer on so she could be paired with a mare that was either her own mother or had at least just lost her own foal?  At the time they were claiming that Emlyn was a private buyer purchase but only with them to get a start or something.  We were asked to forget that as they begged for milk replacer for her to be donated, but then reminded again she was a private purchase.  Of course the reason for this is that Emlyn’s arrival coincided with their suspension so they had to hide her under somebody else’s name.  Somebody that had no intention in covering her costs.  Well, for whatever reason, this privately owned filly is an adoption announcement in their private group and it was the adoption team that handled it.  Funny how that works…

I know most people have heard about Manson tripping herself up and finally admitting she adopted Braveheart.  The screenshot of Big Lick Larkin talking abou ther slipping up and posting her own email while bitching about leaks kinda paints a bigger picture.  I’m told Manson got Braveheart for $1, the same as Chrome.  For those of you that can’t recall, they paid $700 for Chrome to Salvador and around the same for Braveheart even though Manson originally said Braveheart was free but was only collecting his gelding and responsible rescue fees.  That’s also not taking into account the money they collected over and above their purchase/ and RR fees as they always did in the past.  What confuses me is why Braveheart had to be adopted to help place him.  He wasn’t a horse that had no interest.  There were inquires about him and his price was quite high all things considered.  If Manson was so concerned about snapping up a horse to help place, then why isn’t she snatching up pasture puffs rather than ones that actually have people inquiring about them?  Instead she’s helping herself to the ones that are quite adoptable that she feels have a resale value.  Does anybody honestly think she would refund his purchase price to a closed down rescue?  Does anybody think she is personally paying for his feed, trims and upkeep or chipped in for that 12k hay bill she was just begging for and threatening to kill horses over?

lorianneracist

If you had any questions about how involved Manson is with the day to day care of any horse son the property, including her own, you only need to look at this screen shot.  She owns Chrome and doesn’t even know what pen he is in or if he’s been moved.  The other things you should notice is that like Mags, Lori Anne Clough seems to be racist too.  What a classy operation HiCaliber is.  Whatever will rescue do without them?

I am putting out a plea for my moles to let me know if anybody was misguided enough to sign up for this.  Clearly Amanduh is just as short on self-awareness as everybody else living on that feed lot.  Must be something in the water…

appycolor

Just for the record, Shasta appears to be a snowcap Appy, but for the people who think `roanie’ is a color and crawl around underneath horses looking for dorsal stripes, I don’t really expect them to know that.  I could also be wrong considering the most we see of many of these horses is ear shots of them as they haul Manson’s ass on yet another trail ride.  Manson also stated that even though she continues to ride Shasta regularly, she’s not quite ready for adoption yet because she has sore feet.  She also claims that is a recent development, since being trimmed, but this little clip from back in March would suggest otherwise.  I believe this was shortly after her private buyer returned her and subsequently took Shawa in return.

bankruptcy

As we enter our drama portion of this post, as much as I loathe giving them attention, this was sent in and I choked on my coffee.  Given the people behind this page *cough*maggot/pasterfuck/manson*cough*, the fact that they are going on about bankruptcies is beyond hypocritical.  Don’t believe me?

Yeah, the windows in those glass houses are filthy.  What more is there to say about it other than,  enough already.  Nobody cares.

TGCfundraiser

Now that we’ve got all that out of the way, I wanted to give a quick update on The Golden Carrot and their situation.  The t-shirt fundraiser is still open and you can follow the link in the screen shot if you’re interested.  Beyond that I am told what Casey really needs is some help cleaning up the scrap metal from her burned home.  That needs to be done in order to get the rest of the debris cleared away which is needed for the electrical company to come in and get the services reconnected.  (I hope I got that right).  Anybody interested in helping can always connect with TGC through their Facebook page to see what their day to day needs are.

getout

I guess this is as good a place as any to leave things today.  I get how frustrating these last days have been and will continue to be.  It’s especially frustrating to hear Manson say things about her `new direction’ with horses.  Maybe not planned, but I suspect her new direction will be not being able to pay board on the dozen or more personal horses and `projects’ she has accumulated and one of her last remaining village idiots will likely end up picking up her bills or having the animals dumped on them.  Other than that, Manson has been positioning herself to morph into a flipper model with a side hustle of being a hired gun.  I’m also reasonably sure there are not enough deep enough pockets left willing to go without so the Manson Family can continue to live for free and not work for a living.  At the end of the day, I’m not really concerned if people want to continue to support her lying ass.  That’s on them.  My concern is that she never has a chance to gain another foothold in horse rescue or the horse industry and that is where my focus will remain.  I don’t give a singular shit about her broken dreams and maudlin little spiel about what to do with her ranch sign.  Burn it for all I care.  Manson has herself alone to thank for her current predicament no matter how she attempts to shift the blame.  Rest assured her day of reckoning is coming and I can’t wait to write that post.

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

manurepile.jpg

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

copperhart.jpg

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

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

I’m sure that anybody that has been following this on any level knows about the Valley Center Western Days Parade clusterfuck that has gone down over the last week.  It has caused beans to be flicked on both sides of the fence as nearly everybody has gotten their drama boots on and waded right in.  Minor children were bullied and ridiculed, lies were told and all around fuckery ensued. I’m not even going to bother rehashing it all.  I think it’s important to put the actual facts out though.  The reason why horse people are concerned with HiCaliber being in the parade was the risk to their own horses.  Manson may think Strangles is `no big deal’ but most horse people know better.
Here are some screen shots and emails clearly showing there has been an ongoing Strangles issue at HiCaliber for well over a year.  It also clearly shows that Manson was not only aware of it but so is her adoption team as they were addressing it in recent contracts.  Remember that the initial order from the Western Days committee was that no horse exposed to Strangles within the last 12 months would be allowed to be in the parade.  Sadly, knowing the Manson Family, they would have likely worked around that claiming the horses they were riding weren’t exposed and that’s where a lot of the concern was for many people.  I know that Manson claims they have `major’ biosecurity measures in place.  How does she really even know considering she rarely waltzes her happy ass to the more remote areas of the ranch?
phug
This screenshot was from one of their private groups and was posted about a week ago.  One of their regular volunteers described her day at HiCaliber.  What I want people to notice is the order of paddocks she visits, clearly admitting to `petting and scratching’ horses as she went around the property.  AFTER visiting the QT/Vineyard area, she went to the nursery letting them smell her and petting them, on to North herd where she stopped to pet more and then to South herd and Rivers Run.  THIS is just an example of why people do not trust the biosecurity at HiCaliber or want their own horses exposed to HiCaliber horses and it’s valid.  What I find saddest of all is that this small community has had to deal with all this drama and complete fuckery when they are just trying to hold a family event.
It’s a real shame things even had to go his far as it is a complete dick move to knowingly spread Strangles or any other disease around.    I actually don’t even get what the big fuss about being in the parade is for HiCaliber.  Judging by pics of the recent parade they were in and other past performances, it’s not a great advertisment for them or their horses.  You have Manson riding horses that are far too small for her, none of them are groomed and even the riders look raggedy.  Their time would be far better spent at home grooming and feeding their animals and if they must go in the parade, then walk the route holding a sign or drive the golf carts or something.  Just give these poor horses a break because they all look horrible and nobody needs to see Manson doing a 2 point starfish while spilling out of her saddle and sexually harassing anything and everything that crosses her path.  For crying out loud it doesn’t even look like they bothered to clean their tack or dust off their boots.  I suppose we’re going to have to replay this all again as Manson is planning on riding in the July 14th San Diego Pride Parade despite the fact she has said she plans to close down by June 30th.  I’m sure Manson’s criminal defense attorney, Mr. Fancy Socks, will fight for their right to party though.

 One of the features of Parade-gate was good ole Mags charging into the middle of things and basically losing her shit.  Actually, not basically, completely losing her shit and as of this writing, the meltdown continues.   Because the default setting of Mags and the village idiots is to cry `bully’ and point fingers without realizing that every time they do so, three fingers are pointing right back at them, they decided to bully a 14 year old girl that has NOTHING to do with any of the HiCaliber drama beyond a genuine concern about riding her own horse in the parade.  When her concerned father stood up for her and brought it right to the source, all hell broke loose and Mags called him a `shitty parent’ for doing so.  Given her partner’s past criminal charges to do with his own child, I guess Mags isn’t in a position to judge anybody on their parenting skills.  It was also at this point that Mags appears to have lost her tenuous grip on her sanity as she heaved herself up on the cross and played the victim card for all it was worth claiming to be the victim of bullying.
magrant
Where do I even start?  Margaret, you need to get your money back.  Seriously and on all that I hold dear, you are barking up the wrong tree.  In fact, the tree your barking up isn’t even in the right time zone.  YOU are the bully.  You have been told over and over again, you are wrong and you continue to lie about having proof.  By all means go to court.  I won’t be there, but the people you are targeting as me have a very strong case against you.  You have torn people to shreds thinking they are me, you have attempted to discredit me and maligned everything I write.  Tit for tat, Mags.  Not my fault you self identified when I originally posted a blind item about you. I think a year long temper tantrum is a bit excessive and had you actually hired a PI to find out who I was, that’s boil a bunny level creepy.  Your back pedal game is super strong though…BTW the AG investigation, along with the multiple other agencies, is ongoing and Manson has been cleared of nothing.

This one made me laugh.  Little hint for Mags though, even wordpress doesn’t have my actual identity.  By all means though, go on with your bad self and the court orders and PIs.  LOL.
maggot1
From what I can gather, Mags is not well versed on animal advocacy.  She seems to have zero clue who the players are and what people’s credentials actually are.  Funny how it’s not bullying when Margaret spreads untruths and mocks people’s misfortunes though.  I could tear Mags’s personal advocacy claims to absolute shreds but a) what would be the point? and b) I have too much respect for the sources of my intel.  It doesn’t matter anyhow as there is no law that says Mags has to respect TC and there is certainly no law that says anybody has to respect Mags or believe anything she says.
margbully
 I’m not sure if all this is in order, but Mags made a dramatic post.  I can only imagine it was actually put up to inspire people to talk her out of leaving because she hardly even took a break from posting.  It was telling that it was mostly village idiots that told her not to go and the racing community remained silent.  It was also kinda weird how she went full bully after making this post and really didn’t appreciate having the mirror held up to her own face.
You know what I find funny?  I haven’t posted for weeks and she’s still obsessed with me.  I think the regular readers here can attest that even my comments have been sporadic and mostly late at night.  For sure D can attest that I haven’t been around all that much lately.  I also am highly amused given the fact that Mags has posted in private groups about how little my opinion matters and if you want to see screen shots of that along with Mags admitting she really doesn’t know who writes this blog, you can refresh your memory in Writing On The Wall…With Crayons!
Mags didn’t appreciate having her own hypocrisy pointed out to her it seems.  It also seems that even what remains of her own friends have tried to point out to her that she’s off on a tangent.  If anything, Mags picked up steam after this exchange even though she deleted Abby’s comments.
Here we have anti-bullying warrior Mags bullying people.  I’m not sure if she is daring Jennifer to blog about her or she’s daring me, but since I’m the one with a blog and I do love a good dare… I’m not entirely sure what the $100 letter is or why we’re talking bankruptcy but given the fact that Mags’s legal counsel has so far been Angrid, who is not even a member of the California bar, she’s probably not in a position to throw darts here. I’m also not sure how somebody that has to run gofundme campaigns to pay her vet bills and so her partner can buy a used van can afford to hire PIs.  Like I said, she needs to get her money back.  I have a shitload more screen shots I could post showing Mags bullying people, calling names and lying, but what’s the point?  If they haven’t learned by now, I do what I want, I post what I want and if they continue to poke me in the chest, they will continue to get negative attention.  Let’s move on.
 
This is a video where Manson tells another pack of lies.  The person she is talking about is Salvador Paniagua.  This would be the same guy who she used to refer to as `the worst of the worst’ and has claimed there is a language barrier with.  He is a known tripper and the incident with FHR she is referring to is well documented.  He showed up at Mike’s auction with 7 completely mangled horses that had been tripped and demanded $250 each for.  Rather than pay his ransom, FHR called in AC and they suggested that he take $100 each.  It should be noted that none of these horses were in acceptable enough condition to actually be run through auction.  Once the horses started being transferred off Salvador’s trailer and it became apparent how bad of shape they were in, FHR offered $600 for all 7 horses just to get them safe and it was accepted.  All but two horses were too badly injured to save and after being seen by a real vet, they were humanely euthanized. That is the truth of the situation rather than Manson’s version of events.  It’s also what a true rescue and advocate would have done.  Manson bought a load of tripped horses off Salvador just this past January and rather than call AC, she arranged to meet him and pay his ransom.  She also shot the horses herself rather than letting them see a vet.  I should probably mention that Manson and her village idiots mocked FHR and made an issue about them having to put down the 5 horses from Salvador.

Owens Intake February/18

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

ficemeth1

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

newjob

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

 

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

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

cslewis

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