FINALLY, I’ve gotten around to getting together the next installment of `Straight From The Grifter’s Mouth’.  I apologize for the long wait but, in my own defense, I’m hella busy these days and I had kinda planned on this blog being in mothballs by now,  pending the outcomes of the various open investigations against Manson and HiCaliber.  Yes, they are still open and active.  However, I have am both blessed and cursed with more than my fair share of tenacity so I feel compelled to see this through and keeping the flames of outrage stoked.  The only problem with that is there are literally hours and hours of audio to sift through and I’m sure y’all remember how freakin annoying Manson’s voice is.  As you may have guessed, the theme of this round of audio clips is Manson and her ass barnacles throwing people under the bus.  Mostly.  I have a few extras today as well just because I’m random like that.  That being said, it’s that time again.  Pull up, buckle up and pour yourself something cold.

 

Death of Umbra from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

This audio was from a leadership meeting shortly after Umbra’s death.  They hadn’t even made their official post about it yet.  ​Who could forget that live feed where they sat around laughing and eating pizza while Eclipse screamed in the background from the barn and not a single mention that Umbra had just passed?  I’m surprised Manson’s pants didn’t spontaneously combust with the whoppers she was telling her team at this meeting.  Poisoned?  Really?  How about you took an orphaned foal and had her `nursing’ off a mare that never was pregnant?  Just for starters.  Then add the fact she was deformed, post surgical and exposed to God knows what as far as disease on that property.  BTW, still waiting for the necropsy report or do you get one when you just chop her up in the stall with Talbot in plain sight of the mare?  I’m re-pissed about this entire situation now.

Adagio from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

I guess before we back up that bus, we’ll just stay on the horrible death theme for a bit.  They are discussing Adagio in this clip.  She thankfully spent her last days with a capable foster, but it seems her death wasn’t all that peaceful.  Of course it wasn’t Manson’s fault because she was too hopped up on opiates to deal so Sugar Daddy Richie and that fucking monster, Taylor went out to execute her.  As we have come to expect from her, Manson shifts the blame any other direction than herself.  No Manson, it’s not the foster’s fault because  she was only a foster.  It was YOUR call to send Richie that day and nobody else’s.  Yet again a horse suffers and pays the price for your laziness.

Kill The Next Batch from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

As we’ve always heard,  Amanduh takes her turn shooting horses in the face too.  They talk about as casually as if it’s washing the dishes although rather chilling that they refer to the next `batch’.  Gotta get that multiple body discount for the body removal!  Actually, we’ll expand on the multiple deaths in another post.

Lots of interest in Howard from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

Remember Howard?  He came in with a hole in his sinus and needed a rather expensive surgery to fix it. Just another example of the inner circle cherry picking the best horses.  They talk about How much interest there was in him, so tell me how that translated into him ending up with Wrinkles for $1?  At least she took him with her when she jumped off the sinking ship that is Manson’s life.  The pics are recent of Howard and Kennedy in their new digs up north.  Hope whoever Wrinkles is currently leeching off has enough cash to feed her animals.  Kennedy is looking a bit thin.

Manson Blames Romney for the Louisiana Situation from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

Time to back that bus up and the first one under will be none other than Romney Faye Baker!  That’s right, while Manson was accusing the haters of making fun of a grieving mother, she was busy throwing her good friend under the bus and laying the whole Louisiana shit show at her feet.  To Manson’s way of thinking, that was when all hell broke loose as far as haters becoming vocal.  Even though I’d been digging and keeping track for quite some time before, the first actual blog post about them was during this time and I wasn’t the only voice speaking out.  It makes me super excited for when this all finally hits court because Manson is going to shift the blame any direction she can and we know that Romney Faye is yappy as shit too.  It will be glorious.  I can just taste the popcorn already!

Kelsey’s turn under the bus from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

Do you notice how Manson qualifies saying shitty things about people by saying they are still friends but she’s separating her friendship from business or something?  No Manson, you’re talking shit about your friends and laying blame at their feet when they are not around to defend themselves.  She also talked a lot of shit on Kim Roeh, including claiming she practically raised her son.  I’m going to leave the obvious snark about that statement up to your imagination.  Too easy.

The Mean Girls of HiCaliber from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

Manson isn’t the only mean girl of the crew.  Here we have Amanduh and Skeletor joining in on the cuntiness by complaining about how somebody breathes.  The person in question being a volunteer that came and did chores while they all sat on their asses and lived rent free.  How dare she!  I mean maybe she was drunk, but I’m sure it wasn’t like she was rolling around on the pool deck licking salsa off the ground or anything. You also hear Manson chiming in the background about her `Chiclets’ and, I have to say this is a minor dig on appearance compared to some of the other things they said about other people on this audio.  Things I won’t release because I feel they could harm the people involved, but let’s just say Manson engages in her share of body shaming as well.

mansfriend

I swear this post was already half done when Manson posted this ridiculousness the other day.  It’s almost like i was prescient with the clips I was working on. Paying it forward?  Biggest cheerleader?  Oh hell no!  A more accurate statement would be that she’s the `friend’ who will eventually turn against you and use every secret you confided in her as a weapon.  That is when she’s not talking shit behind your back.  As she shifts her focus to all things penis, let’s not forget what brought us all together.  While she posts her dick pic du jour,  people don’t seem to notice yet another horse or yet another dog she’s manifested on a very small property.  I have no intention on launching  a save the penis campaign but I damn sure am not going to sit on my hands while she attempts to grift her way back into exploiting horses again.  We all know the routine.  Draw in the followers by posting a trending topic or something smutty, lubricate them with juvenile humor or oversharing and then hit them with the big ask.  It’s the end of the month and rent is due.  While Manson figures out her next grift,  I’ll work on our next round…Stay salty, my friends!

A few weeks later than intended, but finally we’re ready to start a new series (maybe) in the Grifter Chronicles.  There’s been a lot of back and forth about releasing this stuff and what it might accomplish compared to what the `cost’ of it might be.  Basically, as we sit here in this holding pattern waiting for the AG to do their thing, I’ve noticed complacency, despair, disgust and all sorts of other negative feelings floating around the advocates.  The 4 million dollar lawsuit going out with a whimper didn’t really help although that was never going to put much of a dent in the tinfoil that doubles as Manson’s armor.  So with those things in mind, coupled with Manson manifesting way too many `ex’ HiCaliber horses lately, it’s probably time to show a few cards that I’ve had up my sleeves.  By no means is this all I have up my sleeves, but maybe it will remind people of the evil that was allowed to flourish under the pretense of saving horses.  Maybe it will help keep the pressure on these agencies to do their jobs before we have another CERF or SLER sized mess on our hands. I want y’all to take a look at these short clips and we’ll talk about how they came to be after.  Without further ado, here it is straight from the mouths of the grifters themselves…

Squirrel is an asshole from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

Remember Squirrel (JC: Summer Soprano)?  Such a pretty mare that had plenty of offers for a home during her incarceration with HiCaliber but she never made it out alive.  Was it because she as an`asshole’ as Skeletor is heard saying on this audio or became Amanduh decided she wasn’t suitable for a trail horse?  Whatever the reason, I think this shows the kind of `compassion’ she was subjected to in her final days.  Hard to imagine a kind hand or comfort given the attitude on display. RIP Squirrel

curtis from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

Here we have Manson admitting that Curtis didn’t need to die and was a healthy horse.  That wasn’t quite the story she told her villagers back when he died.  I did mention his passing in this post in November 2017.  I didn’t have all the details on his passing then that this little clip provides including that his euthanasia didn’t go so well.  They allege that is because he was chemically euth’d.  RIP Curtis.

`What I don’t disclose….’ from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

This clip is a bit more damning as far as what the AG will think.  In it Manson admits that she already had purchased the horses she paraded in front of the village in her version of `the truck is coming’ high pressure grifting.  In other words, put a deadline on their head to inspire people to dig deeper.  It’s outright fraudulent fundraising and we have Manson admitting to it.

watson from Barn Brat on Vimeo.

watson

Our last clip for today is Manson discussing Watson.  If you recall, Watson was a very mangled horse that showed up in the parking lot at Ontario the same day Chrome did.  This was all at the same time they manifested Johnny Cade from Misner.  We talked briefly about Watson and the others (Sylvia was killed that day too) in this post including videos of how horrible of shape they were in.  Now we come to find out that two of them had bullets in their heads within minutes of the last dollar rolling in.  No vet to assess and sign off, just Manson in a rage if the other videos that day were anything to go by.

manspoop

Part of my dilemma about posting these clips is that the wrong people are probably going to take the blame.  I know Manson and her barnacles all read here so I need her to understand that while she was busy looking for blue bottles she probably didn’t think to check for gum under her chair.  While we’re on the subject of blue bottles, while they all fixated on one person with a water bottle, there was a team of people they never identified that you might say are professionals when it comes to blending in and being inconspicuous.  You never know where these people might be or where ears and eyes may be around, even now.  So yeah, one of her inner circles might take the hit, but I figure if they’re still in bed with Manson, that’s fair game. We won’t let her slither off into the sunset to rise again.  So, saddle up folks, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover and I think even Manson’s remaining villagers will find what she has to say when she thinks the cameras are off quite enlightening.  Until next time…

You know what?  It’s probably going to be a frosty Friday in hell before I ever get around to finishing off some of the posts I’ve been working on.  It’s not because they aren’t important, but rather The Manson Family, being the cockroaches they are, just will not stop grifting.  I knew it as soon as I saw that last post I shared that Manson was dipping her toe in to see if the idiots were ready to dig deep.  Ever since then it’s been a fucking  grift-o-rama of emotional manipulation and begging. Thankfully, our birds are out in full force so I’ll update you and then we’ll figure out how to chop the head off this snake before it gets out of control again.  I’m not even going to bother sugar-coating any of this or playing nice.  Enough is enough.  Buckle up, because if you have the smallest shred of compassion and common decency, you’re going to be pissed too.

In the last post, I showed how Manson has been testing the waters to see if she can go on another horse killing spree for dollars.  Apparently,  the few dollars offered to her over that situation emboldened her because we were quickly treated to a rather lengthy, and emotionally manipulative post about how she shot Barry Boi in the face, complete with a $2000 gofraudme campaign.  I guess cremation costs a whole bunch more than back when she was begging for dollars to memorialize Johnny Cade after she and her minions tortured and killed him.  We were all asked to suspend disbelief and logic and overlook the fact that there were no current pictures of the kid with Barry Boi, due to the fact she had long ago lost interest in him.  We were also supposed to overlook the fact that even though Manson 30% diagnosed him as having a stroke `last fall’, there was a picture of him at the Bonsall property looking very un-strokelike.  In fact, the horse was lame and they were too lazy to manage him, but why let him slip away without making some extra dollars off him? The grift was on.  I’m pretty sure the picture of his balls, probably long since consumed by the Manson family, was just her way to make sure Barry Boi didn’t pass with too much dignity.  Apparently, the village idiots had money burning holes in their pocket as they quickly ponied up the requested $2000 for a pictures (seriously wtf) and frames to go along with a box of ashes they won’t ever see.  In the midst of that mess, there was a fuckton of anthropomorphizing on Manson’s part and apparently prescience on Barry Boi’s part.  It seems that Manson felt like she under asked so she quickly used that sad situation and her daughter’s alleged grief for a more open-ended ask and the horse from our last post, was quickly manifested.  This is where it gets extremely off pissing.

 

BTW, the update she said she would post for the public page consisted of a years old picture of Tanner the horse and a post about his penis complete with her immature and rude responses when people ask why he is still not gelded.  Apparently the horse that belonged to HiCaliber is now her personal horse that she can do with what she likes.  I hope she’s got a solid paper trail on her personally supporting him while she’s at it.  Maybe Romney Faye is throwing some change towards that now that she’s back Dumbass Darrell’s dick and found another special needs child to round out her income. Life is good for the ExCalibers!

This is the mare from the previous post.  She has clearly deteriorated in body condition since Manson first knew about her.  She is now emaciated, covered in sores likely from where her poor bones created pressure laying down and her feet haven’t had any attention in some time.  Her pasterns are dropped and that situation clearly hasn’t been managed on any level.  We’ve heard this about Manson before.  She likes these horses to linger until they are pitiful enough to shake the coins loose from her village.  So, not only has she known about this horse for long enough for this animal to deteriorate significantly, she has also protected the person that is directly responsible for her current condition.  Rather than do the right thing and reach out to another rescue or animal control, she has done nothing.  Nada.  She is an accomplice to the condition of this horse and she’s still not done exploiting her for dollars.  We gotta toss in the kid for some more emotional manipulation.   Instead of telling it like it is, the horse killing grifter becomes `just a mom trying to help her family heal’.  She conveniently overlooks that the situation she finds herself in is a result of her own poor choices, greed and just pure fucking evil.  What hasn’t occurred to her yet is the fact that she has even less of a leg to stand on as far as protecting these people, diagnosing the horses and killing them than she did when she was hiding behind her rescue.  If she truly wanted her kids to continue `helping’ horses she’d take them to a real rescue to volunteer.  Maybe they’d learn what actual horse people behave like rather than opportunistic assholes like their mother is.

Here you have many of your usual morons crawling up Manson’s ass and becoming moist at the prospect of another mangled horse to kill.  Let’s not overlook the big lie from Manson.  She tells them just what they want to hear and the message to take forward. Forget that the same person had this horse when she wasn’t in such bad condition, because in Manson’s narrative, they are not the abusers and it’s merely a cultural difference and these poor people are so afraid.  MY ASS.  May I remind you all that I put the offer out to Manson that we would help this horse over a week ago.  That was sincere and that was legit.  We still have a place for this horse, but there was never a response because that was never Manson’s goal.  It didn’t serve her needs because, with Manson, the horse is never first and referring her on to people that will actually help this horse does not keep Manson in eyelashes and burritoes.

Same horse, different day. The difference between griftable and savable.

 

 

So here we are again watching Manson protect the very people who neglect and abuse horses while she wrings every last possible penny out of their broken bodies.  How long did this mare suffer before Manson figured she was far gone enough for maximum financial benefit and to parade in front of her village idiots?  What happened to the other horse she alluded to in the initial post?  While we’re at it, whatever happened to so many of the broken wraiths she dangled in front of the village near the end but never actually manifested when the interest was lackluster?  This has to stop.  Yesterday.  Speak up and speak out.  Light up the phone lines or whatever else you can think of to get action.  I’ve not often preached that to people, but now that she’s got a place to start hoarding again it behooves every advocate to nip this in the bud.  While the investigations are still active, and believe me they are, animals continue to suffer and be exploited to support  Manson and Wrinkles in their quest to never work another day in their life.  I’d say honest day but I’m not sure either one of them have the capacity for that or ever did.  As much as I hate to say it, this is the tip of the iceberg as far as what’s hit my inbox this week when it comes to The Manson Family antics.  I guess our break is over.  Much more to come…

Happy Wednesday!  I’d say `Hump Day’ but chances are that would be taken and misquoted out of context and the next thing we’ll hear is that we’re all part of some bizarre sex cult.  Ain’t nobody got time for that!  What we do have time for is another guest post.  I am still working on some other things that will take me back my roots with this blog, but in the meantime, the HiCaliber stuff is still `happening’.  Today’s post comes from a `contributor’ and gives a rather telling and timely update on a HiCaliber horse that was there almost until the end.  I suspect this is only the first such story we’ll be hearing about in the coming months.  We’re a long ways from done it seems…

~*~

How many of you remember Scout, the cute little baby that Michelle rode, claiming that he was 3-4 years old? That was back in September 2017. It was obvious that he was too small for Michelle to be riding, and in an ill-fitting saddle, to boot. Still, he looked like a little cutie, and many of us cringed, wondering what would happen to him. None of us were even surprised when she later declared him a crypt, which was a frequent story of hers, and money raised for a very expensive surgery that was of course never performed. Turns out the surgery was never needed, either. I hope that this post might prove educational, as well as heartwarming, knowing that Scout has arrived at a new place where he will get the care that he–as do all horses–deserve.

 

On a plus note, Scout hit the lottery during the HiCaliber dispersal and arrived at a reputable rescue, Strawberry Mountain Mustangs,  to get him the needed surgery and training needed to make him adoptable. Now that his gelding has been completed, he will continue the quarantine, and has a foster already willing to step up for him. His gelding was performed on January 10th, and he will be available for adoption in 60 days time. He already stands around 16 hands and just went butt high again, so chances are that he is undergoing yet another growth spurt and will be a big guy!

Now, for Scout’s REAL story:

Scout arrived in mid December at SMM, and you couldn’t ask for a bigger love bug. Always interested in what people are doing, and resembles a giant Labrador Retriever, with the way he attaches himself to the people around him. (Am I the only one who absolutely wants to cry at these horses who are simply seeking love and instead simply languished at HiCaliber, being ignored if they weren’t “favorites?”) I mean, look at this face–who couldn’t love that face?

scout11

Although he arrived in fairly good flesh, his coat was dull and shortly after arrival the worm load he was carrying began to be seen, even before worming. He was so absolutely loaded with ascrarids that he was dropping them in his manure, which could have been seen earlier if people had actually been cleaning pens at HiCaliber. That is an indicator for any horse that they are absolutely riddled with worms throughout their system–lungs, stomach, intestines, etc. The adult ascarids that he dropped after worming don’t even reflect what was in his lungs, egg loads, etc. before hand. He was treated with Safeguard and put on colic watch for a few days afterwards and he will undergo fecal egg counts, etc to tailor a worming program specific to his needs. Make note that ascarids, also known as roundworms, create a HUGE risk for impaction colic when found in large amounts in young horses and are probably a large part of the reason (among others) that Michelle had so many colics. In addition to that, ascarid eggs are tough and can live for a long time in the environment, which would soon result in the infestation of every animal in the surrounding environment. It is  important to use rotational worming and fecal egg counts, as well as proper sanitation of the environment, to stop something like that from happening.

(prior to worming)

Basically, had this horse been examined by an actual  vet, had blood drawn, been laid down etc…. They would have seen elevated phosphorus levels (see 3rd paragraph from bottom), his teeth would have shown his age, and his testicle would have appeared.
This is the vet paperwork upon discharge, with the admission information as they knew it–“cryptorchid, approx. 5 years of age.” The information within gives what the vet discovered through bloodwork, during gelding, etc. regarding his age, etc.

 

medical records

The best news of all is that this young horse has fallen into the best of hands, from a rescue which has always produced fantastic results with any horse in their care. You can follow Scout’s story at “Grace–the Little Horse with the Big Spirit,” on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Grace-the-little-horse-with-the-big-spirit-149993988359361/. They are a 501c3  who depend solely on donations, and work primarily with law enforcement and local horses in need, without attending auctions to raise money. As with all rescues–they are really struggling and could use additional donations to help Scout, as well as others in their care from a recent neglect case. He will be available for adoption soon in the Roseburg area!

Happy New Year!!!  I know, I know, I said my thank you s, I said my goodbyes, I thought I was pretty much done.  What can I say?  I should have known better.  Actually, I still am pretty much done but, as I did promise, I will continue to drop updates as they come available if only to have a complete documentation of this little journey all in one place.  There actually isn’t a lot of `post’ to go with what I have today.  I have no intention of wading into the current drama surrounding the property.  My concern remains with the animals and while I mourn the ones that died at the hand of Manson, there are a number still left under her control.  That is where my focus will remain as the only ones we can save are the ones still living.  In the interest of that, I have some updates on where the majority of them are.  I guess I neglected to mention on that last post that my little birdie mole is still deep inside.  My bad…

I think most people are aware that Manson did return to pick up the majority of the tack and equipment.  As you can see they are all being well cared for.  I’m expecting them to show up on sale sites or at auction at some point, but for now they are heaped out in the open at the new place likely being chewed up by vermin.  Nice.

As you can see, the Manson vehicles are all present along with at least one Gator (both are said to be there).  Not a lot of hay around, but from what I can see in alphamare, the money is still trickling in for now.  I did kinda laugh that the old steel trailer is there after Manson trying to sell it for way too much money some months ago.  That was only after she had cows and other small animals living in it at the height of the hoarding days.

Most of the known hoard of Manson are at this property.  No, I’m not going to announce where it is right now and don’t email me about it.  Wrinkles’s horses Kennedy, and Howard are clearly visible as well as at least two of Manson’s cremellos.  The two cows and Corky are also said to be at this place.  She also has a donkey and a few chickens there.  The total horse head count is between 20 and 24.  Nice to see that some of the donated blankets are being used on Manson’s personal horses.

I’m going to keep this short and not so sweet.  Rest assured that the condition of her hoard is being monitored.  I’m not going to bother getting into what dwelling she is currently infesting as that is really no concern of ours.  What she is doing and subjecting animals to is a concern, so as long as she continues to hoard animals, there will be boots on the ground.  It’s also important to note that she has been very clear in her alpha mare village group that these are personal horse and donations to feed them are not tax-deductible even though HiCaliber’s 501c3 is still active for now.  There is a whole bunch going on behind the scenes and hopefully a few things will shake loose sooner, rather than later.  We’re a whole bunch further down the path than we were a year ago and my hope is that a year from now, this is over.  Hell, I hope a six months from now that’s the case but you know what they say about the Hotel California…you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.  I am totally feeling that right about now.

When I dusted off this blog  and decided to write about HiCaliber back in 2017, it was just me needing to offload what was on my chest.  No moles, no help.  Just me.  It seems somehow appropriate that I close the HiCaliber chapter of this blog the same way.  Just me.  I’ve seen a lot of speculation, talk, and general noise about who did what, what I thought, what my motives were and who I was for months.  Most of it was just that.  Noise.  This is the story straight from the source of how it all went down as far as my involvement and process.   Forgive me if this gets a bit long, I still have a lot to get off my chest.

Kill spot at HiCaliber

 

May 2017.  That’s when I dusted off this blog after a 3 1/2 year hiatus.  Little did I know, I was grabbing a tiger by the tail with that post.  There wasn’t really a mission or master plan, but it also wasn’t out of nowhere.  HiCaliber had been a rescue I’d loosely followed over the years.  I’d even given them a shout out once upon a time and featured Manson’s videos on the Starlight Sanctuary train wreck way back then.  (Manson wasn’t the one that sent them to me.  I’ve never had contact with her as far as I know).  Yes, I kinda thought Manson was rough around the edges and a little bit of a gunsel but without looking too deeply at her, I figured she was doing more good than harm and maybe that actually was the case way back when.  Then, HiCaliber started popping up on my newsfeed more and more.  I’m guessing this was due to their algorithm bumps and her paying to boost her posts, but I can’t be sure.  I’m not that tech savvy and anything computer related I still attribute to magic and try not to apply reason to it.  At any rate, the more they came across my newsfeed, the more squinty eyed I became.  Aside from the weekly cry seshes, what struck me was the constant state of crisis.  It just didn’t ring right for me and my spidey senses started tingling.

 

Then Snuggles happened… Nothing about the Snuggles situation rang true and it really started to stink to high heaven when they went into damage control mode spinning this tale on how that yes, they did trade this horse to a kill buyer, but always planned to get him back.  Yeah, because that’s a thing rescues do.  I could have even suspended disbelief and gone on with my life but close on the heels of Snuggles came the whole Slaughter 11 debacle.  Y’all remember the last minute fundraising effort and dramatic save culminating with the `collapsed’ and strategically placed horses on the ground heaving from what appeared to be heat exhaustion.  I always meant to write that whole mess up as a throwback post after I resurrected this blog, but those wacky horse killers at HiCaliber kept shitting their collective pants and I never got around to it.  What I did get around to was documenting everything and sorting out exactly how it all happened and adding it to the file of fraud.  Suffice to say it was a set up from jump street and the fact that it coincided with Romney Faye’s relationship with Dumbass Darrell is not a coincidence.

 

After these incidents, I got my dig on and found out who `Voldy’ was and started tracking things.  Initially, there wasn’t a lot out there on Facebook other than a defunct screen shot group.  I think it might still be in existence but never updated.  Apart from that, the only thing I could find was a few mutterings in advocate groups and the advocacy groups I mostly lurked at are anti-slaughter groups.  I’m not and never have been very active on Facebook or any social media as far as being an active participant.  I can’t even remember my twitter account password and haven’t updated my status in nearly 2 years.  However, I questioned and bitched about HiCaliber just enough to join forces with some other advocates.  Real ones, not armchair ones.

 

Despite what has been said, or you may have heard, I did not get `inspired’ to dust off this blog.  I got extremely pissed off and needed to vent.  It took me about 3 days to even figure out what my password to this account was.  (I actually forget what it is again, so please stop trying to hack it as it’s a pain in my ass to go through a gazillion random post-it notes stuck all over my house).  Remember that Snuggles and the Slaughter11 stuff went down in the summer/fall of 2016.  My first post back was in May of 2017 and the reason I was pissed off is a bunch of us had been gathering information, compiling information and NOTHING was happening with it.  If anything, it felt like The Manson Family was gaining momentum and the body count was becoming alarming.  When they pulled off the OTTB20 shit show,  I was triggered.  I’m a racetracker born and bred.  (yes, Maggot we know each other and that’s why I laugh at you) so you fuck with OTTBs and lie about them,  I’m not going to let it go.  Throw Satan and Doughboy into that mix and I am going to the mat with it.  Simple as that.

 

I figured I would just post a bit about the OTTB20 sitch and then put this blog back in mothballs.  I was actually shocked at the response those posts got and completely unprepared for what was to follow.  Needless to say things snowballed.  The OTTB20 became 40 and more. Pretty much everything about that mess forward is documented on this blog.  I don’t need to go over it all again.  That’s not what this post is about.  What happened behind the scenes was a literal outpouring of information almost as if I’d opened a floodgate.  All of a sudden, it became safe for people to speak out against HiCaliber without fear of reprisal from the mob mentality of the village.  I have always allowed people to post in the comments without registering here and I never turn on their IPs to look at unless I have to block them.  I tried to keep things as safe as possible to speak out and it worked.  Did I ban a few?  You bet your ever lovin ass I did and I’m proud of it.  (I see you, Stacy Kendall.  Get some diaper creme for that butthurt).  I have never cared if you’re a villager who wanted to come over here and state your side of things.  A few of them have.  Agreeing with me is not required either.  The only thing I ever insisted on is to be respectful in presenting your ideas.  Come over here with your guns blazing and I’ll take away your bullets.  During the whole course of the HiCaliber era, I think only about 4 of you got banned.  It’s an exclusive club.

 

Back in those very early days I was winging it.  I had no moles or even considered getting them.  Lord knows The Manson family was arrogant and sloppy enough to give all the ammo I needed back then.  I had one person that was working with me and for sure helped loads with memes, clips and ears out in all the groups.  I also joined forces with Stealth Mole very early in the game although not in a mole capacity.  One thing I want to make clear is that I never once reached out to anybody to be my mole.  I let them come to me and I’m so grateful they did.  OG Mole was the first and was very quickly followed by others. Some stayed with me longer than others.  OG rode it to the end with me along with a few others we’ll get to.  I will forever be grateful to the longtime insiders that took a chance and trusted me.  Some had tidbits of info while others stuck it out and risked a bunch.  I felt bad every time I saw people accused and vilified for being moles that weren’t.  (Leah, I’m so sorry you keep taking hits.  As far as I know, we never communicated) Other moles were hiding in plain sight and stayed that way.  I tried to make it comfortable for people to come forward and I always, always checked if what they were giving me could be posted.  Sometimes I couldn’t post what they shared and that was fine too.  There is a lot of information and `receipts’ that exchanged hands that have never seen the light of day and won’t until the AG does whatever it is he’s going to do with all of it.  Some people who came forward had been dedicated villagers that had actively hated me and my blog.  I’m in absolute awe at their dedication to the animals that they could set that aside and reach out.  Thank you.  You all made a huge difference and more than once I felt completely humbled by your advocacy and trust.  My hope is that when the dust all settles, I can meet with some of you and thank you in person.  You have my undying respect.

 

While we’re on the subject of moles, I’ve seen a lot of blather from the village idiots about how could they stand by and watch these atrocities being committed and say and do nothing.   Of course these are also the same brainiacs that have suggested that the condition that property was left in was `normal’ and one of them even suggested that HiCaliber had increased the property value.  (I’m not even kidding about that one.  I have the screen shot).  Clearly these people have no concept on how cases are made.  Do they think an undercover cop makes a bust the first time he sees the law broken? Nobody goes down for what they might do.  Sometimes you have to hand people the rope and sit back.   You have to bite your tongue and look at the greater good and it sucks.  It’s heart wrenching and it’s horrible and every single mole and ex HiCaliber person that spoke out deserves respect.  I can only imagine what witnessing some of those things first hand must have been like.

 

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Dixie.  She was another one that reached out to me very early on offering her help to  in doing more than just getting information out there, but actually doing something with that information.  Dixie is a really well-known and respected advocate and she gets things done.  This was not her first rodeo exposing a fraudulent rescue.  She was the one that took care of the reams of evidence and organized it.  She’s the one that knew exactly how to package and present it and she got the result.  Did other people unrelated to the blog report stuff?  I’m sure they did.  I hope they did.  I’m strictly talking about the information that came across my desk and that was handed to us.  It was no small task, but despite a whole bunch personally going on for her, Dixie put the animals first and I firmly believe the CVMB and AG cases wouldn’t be as far along without her.  I miss having Dixie here to bounce stuff off of every day, but she’s here in spirit and she’s still working for the horses as she can.

 

I bet you’re wondering about the auction team and the birth of stealth mole.  The core team at auction was Stealth Mole, Hollywood Mole and Crash Mole.  Sometimes they were joined by moles who will not be named and Rogue Mole.  Every single one of them did their part, but I gotta bow down to the big three here.  They knocked it out of the park each and every time and it wasn’t fun at all.  There is so much footage and pics that may not make titillating blog fodder but they most certainly made the case.  Auction days were extremely stressful between people sweating it out in the backs of vehicles and others risking confrontations with the Manson Family.  All of us trying to coordinate over messenger and via text and trying really hard to get that money shot as the Manson family scattered to the wind in an effort to hide their dealings.  They had Manson call them `cuntfaces’ right in front of everybody at auction among other things.  One of those times was because one of them dared to bid on a horse they wanted to help out.  Apparently it interfered with the HiCaliber grift or something.  The auction moles did most of their work out of their own pocket and for no glory other than they were trying to help animals and do the right thing.  They didn’t just go in one or two times but many, many times.  The big three will forever be in my circle of trust.  If I had to pinpoint the one thing that `broke’ HiCaliber it was what the auction team got done.  They completely took HiCaliber out of the game at Ontario and by doing so, they severed off their major source of fundraising.  They also keep going back randomly to document the conditions for the unfortunate souls that are being run through there.

 

While we’re on the subject of the circle of trust I feel I need to have my say about some other things that are playing out social media.  The whole Jennifer Marek as a sacrificial lamb drama.  The fact is that Jen is not associated with this blog and hasn’t been for the better part of a year.  I’ve never met Jen and she doesn’t know me. We’ve discussed her lawsuit only as far as to say that it’s a slam dunk for her because she is not me and never even moderated this blog or holds any responsibility here.  Why should anybody give in to the likes of Maggot filing a frivolous suit because she wants to the honor of unmasking the blogger?  It’s not going to change the truth of what I wrote and the last time I checked there is no law against telling the truth and having opinions.  If finding out an anonymous source’s identity was that easy, don’t you think we’d all know who leaked that stuff about the White House by now?  The fact is that I have been supportive of Jen in this situation and supporters of this blog have contributed to her legal fund to the tune of around $2000 as well as in other ways.  Nobody has hung her out to dry.  We just don’t all hang our dirty laundry out for public commentary.  What is grist for the rumor and gossip mill is no concern of mine, but know that I can ALWAYS back my shit up.  I just don’t play those cards unless I have to.  Maggot doesn’t just get to pick a random target and get her own way.  That’s not how it works and I have every confidence that Jen will not only win that lawsuit but likely will win a countersuit for harassment should she go that route because she isn’t me and never has been.  It really is that simple  The other suit really doesn’t have anything to do with this blog so I can’t really comment on that.  I guess if I was Jen, I might have done things a bit differently as far as poking the bear, but that’s her stuff, not mine.  I will be supportive of her seeing this through as I always have been and she knows it, so miss us with your drama and speculation while shit gets handled.

 

I also want to talk about the Horror Page.  I don’t think it’s any secret I haven’t always been a fan of the antics on Facebook.  I bet it would surprise y’all to know that I’ve worked with them a number of times.  While I don’t like drama and all that goes with it, I know their aim was true and we ultimately wanted the same outcomes.  There just happens to be more than one way to skin a cat and leaving it in a freezer ain’t one of them.  (see what I did there?) Rogue Mole helped us out immensely on a few occasions and I am grateful.  My gratitude extends to other members of that group who I know stepped up in ways they never will talk about and are still doing so.  My hope is that they handle all the details the next time a SoCal rescue shits its pants and needs intervention so I can sit out! I’m not going anywhere but I will be returning to more hit and run posts and advocacy.  I’m going to leave the years long projects to others for now and the gals over at Horror are more than capable of taking that on should they choose to.

 

From my perspective, nobody was speaking out about this shit show back when I wrote that first blog.  I don’t know why that is or what changed, but the tide did turn and no one person did that.  Many voices did that. I always tried to keep drama off this blog even though yes, I did slip sometimes.  You can only take so much provocation without striking back.  I had a lot of people emailing me and wanting things.  Some wanted info, some wanted to share info.  I quickly learned to keep my circle really small and I did that intentionally.  In the interest of credibility, I refused to work with certain people who claimed to have the goods or would get them.  Some of those people that couldn’t get what they wanted from me ran straight to the dark side and bitched.  Some are still bitching because I didn’t do things how they thought I should.  None of them can ever say I didn’t keep their confidence.  I always did that no matter how done I got with some parties.

 

I’ve been accused of hating the media.  Not true at all.  Almost from the beginning I’ve had offers from a few news outlets to talk and it’s just not my thing.  Everything I’m willing to share is here on this blog.  There is a big difference between a blogger and a reporter.  A reporter’s job to report things that have already happened and try to remain unbiased.  As a blogger, I’m not bound by those shackles.  My `job’ was to make things happen and the team I worked with did that.  Without them the reporters would have had nothing to report.  Reporters didn’t file the case with the AG, Dixie and others did that.  They didn’t file with the CVMB, again, that was Dixie and various other people.  Reporters cover stories that bring them ratings and what brings ratings?  You all bring the ratings. We, all of us on the `hater’ side of things, made this story worth covering and continue to do so.  Now it’s time to let the media take this out to the mainstream public beyond the horse community.  The more viral it becomes, the flashier this case gets for the AG to slam dunk.

 

I mentioned this blog has been around since 2012.  It’s true.  Just go back through the archives because there is a lot of really good information on it.  It always had a loyal following even on hiatus, but it exploded with the HiCaliber stuff.  In the last 1 1/2 years there has been nearly 3 million hits on this blog.  In the early days of the HiCaliber saga I toyed with the idea of monetizing it and the plan was to give at least 50% of whatever it brought in to different rescue each month.  I even had one person tell me that I absolutely should and not feel bad about pocketing it because I earned it.  I quickly abandoned that idea because I never wanted anybody to think I did this for any personal gain.  I left a lot of money on the table by not doing so, but I’m ok with that.  It was the right thing to do.  I knew that no matter what I did, the defenders of HiCaliber, the cockblockers and turd flingers, would turn it into something ugly and gross.  It seems that I’m right since Pasterfuck was still yipping about me monetizing it not so long ago because he sees ads on the page when visits one of his 89 times a day to take screen shots for his binder.  (BTW, I think that binder qualifies me as a published author, so thanks PF please send the royalties to MOP and TGC). The ads belong to WordPress and the money goes to them as far as I know.

 

Another thing I’ve seen bitched about is why none of us haters ever stepped up and helped any horses.  Boy howdy! If they only knew!  I personally networked horses into the double digits and I know other haters that did too.  I’m guessing more horses went to haters in this past six months than anywhere else.  Trust me, the haters stepped up in spades for the HiCaliber horses and it wasn’t easy task, but you know it was done for the right reasons because you don’t see a single one of them being fund raised for or gloated about.  They are being loved and cared for just as they always deserved.  Don’t bother emailing me about them because I’ll never tell.  In fact I’ve already forgotten.

 

Why the anonymity?  Because this blog has never been about me.  You all see the complete and absolute fuckery that goes on back and forth over on Facebook and all that does is detract from the issues and take the focus away from what is important.  The animals.  As I’ve said, who I am won’t change the truth of what I wrote about.  I don’t have any skeletons rattling around in my closet and I don’t much care what people I don’t even respect think about me.  My anonymity has allowed me access to information I otherwise wouldn’t have and my anonymity allowed others to feel safe in coming forward to me, hence the `confessional’ suggestion of this blog name.  If people don’t agree with how I did things or my choices, they can start a blog, take on more than two years of investigative work and present and do it the way they think it should be done  Fill your boots.  My delivery or `style’ may not be for everybody, but that’s the luxury of being a blogger.  I get to be authentically me and do it how I feel it should be done.  In this case it worked.  Love me or hate me, I got shit done and I did it for the animals.  I don’t care about glory or pats on the back.  That’s never been my style.  I just don’t appreciate when others take credit that isn’t their due.

 

I want to close this off by bringing it back to what this has all been about.  The animals.  The exploitation, the suffering, neglect and outright torture some of them endured will forever haunt me.  If there is any take away from all of this it is to speak up and speak out before things get so far out of control.  There were whispers about HiCaliber for years before the final curtain and hundreds of animals were executed in that time.  Some months ago, I posted a pic of this very spot where there were some tarps, manure and way too much blood for the death to have been painless.  It seems only fitting that we placed a small symbol of our love in that same spot to let them know they will never be forgotten and their deaths were not in vain.  Thank you to the Markstein/Fox family for allowing us to do so and thank you to Stealth for making it happen.  This was from all of us on the shedrow team including readers and supporters.  I’m not done with my advocacy and I’m not going anywhere, but for now I’m closing the chapter on  HiCaliber because we accomplished what we set out to do.  #IAMSHEDROW #SAYTHEIRNAMES

Today was National Day of The Horse.  It seems somehow fitting that this day was the day that The Manson Family finally got sent packing.  It was live tweeted on inewsource’s Twitter page and there were several advocates there as well.  In short, there have been and will continue to be pics, footage and talk about this being dropped for days.  Thankfully, we had somebody there too that could get some things more specific to what has been discussed on this blog over the past 20 months or so and answer a few questions we’ve all had.  This post is obviously going to be pic and clip heavy.  Make sure you click on the videos on this post as they add quite a bit of context to everything.  If you have any questions about any of the pics or footage in particular, please just ask and don’t speculate.  There really isn’t much commentary needed as the pics will speak for themselves.  I gotta warn people that some stuff towards the end of this post is going to be really upsetting.  Maybe read on an empty stomach.  Are you ready?  Let’s do this for one of the last times…

Initially, advocates and the owners had to wait outside the property while HiCaliber moved the horses out.  The majority of horses being moved appeared to be the personally owned ones.  This clip seems to be of a very lame Barry Boi being unloaded from a stock trailer only to be lead up and tied to a tree on the neighbor’s property.

Next we have Manson leading horses out, one of which appeared to be Foreskin.  As you can see Manson wasn’t in a great mood and was more concerned with yelling at people.

More horses.  Hard to tell exactly who some are with their masks on but this one could be Chrome.

Shasta may or may not have joined Manson’s personal hoard.  She’s still there even though she’s listed as adopted on their website.

Wrinkles’ horse Kennedy being brought out by a volunteer


Some of the volunteers got a bit aggressive with some of the people there with the family.  In this video, the volunteer kicks the gate into inewsource reporter Megan Wood.  There was really no excuse for this.

 

I’m not 100% sure which gray horse this is (he is gray under all that mud) but I’m guessing it’s Solar.  Yet another horse that hasn’t ever really been available for adoption

Yup, Tanner the horse was brought next door to be tied to a tree as well.  I’m kinda wondering how she’s going to grift for his castration for the third or fourth time now that they are claiming to be closed.  Romney Faye was present today, but was not seen anywhere near any of the horses.  She left with a crate of cats or something.

Above are pictures of various of Manson’s personal horses being brought next door.  yes, that is Amanduh tying one of them up.  Manson appeared to be leading Foreskin and the cremello with the pulled mane is likely Dawson.  Kinda strange one of Manson’s personal horses would have been groomed at all recently but maybe she’s trying to sell her or something.  Who knows? I’m sure now that there is no more HiCaliber (or so she says), she won’t feel the need to donate their adoption fees back to the rescue like she claimed she would.

sheriff

 

When the time was finally up, Manson and her crew were escorted off the property by the sheriff.  A normal person would be embarrassed but she was defiant until the bitter end. What she didn’t manage to bring with her was Bubbles, Bernie, Corky, two chickens and all the guinea fowl.  Strangely, none of these animals seemed to be missing Manson like she claimed they would.  In fact, it was business as usual as they continued to wallow in their filth.  Manson claims she is going back in for the pig and cows, but that remains to be seen. I feel like they are much better off already.  Corky is having a hard time moving around apparently so having him stuffed in a trailer for God knows how long wouldn’t be in his best interest although putting an animal first isn’t exactly a HiCaliber thing.

With Manson finally gone for good, we were finally allowed our first unfettered look at the utter destruction of this once beautiful property.  The level of filth cannot be adequately described.  Remember that Manson claimed that a `big cat’ injured her two horses and that the fences were all fine. I believe it was Amberloser that claimed she walked `every inch of that property’ and didn’t see an issue.  Ok then…

The amount of debris and trash left behind was off the charts.  What I noticed was how much donated tack and equipment is just left lying around, obviously never having been taken care of or maintained.

 

noscrubs

Even Manson’s beloved drug den  med room was left in a complete shambles.  Again, it’s sure nice to so many of the supplies she continually begged for, right up until the bitter end, just lying around and wasted.  I didn’t ask if the autoclave or SAA machine were left behind, but I’m guessing not.  There didn’t seem to be any drugs left behind either.  Shocking.

This next part is what I need to warn people about.  While I have posted about the severed legs in the freezer before, what they found today was a bit more disturbing than that.  Don’t get me wrong, the severed leg was still there, but that was the least of the issues and, of course, there was food and Fireball stuffed in there with the medical waste.

deadcat

That’s right folks, Manson had a dead bobcat in the freezer.  I posted some months ago about her inquiring about somebody skinning a roadkill bobcat and she claimed it was for a friend.  Unless that `friend’ was Wrinkles, Manson was referring to one of her personalities.  I’m not even sure if this is legal but hopefully the family will contact Fish and Wild Life so this animal can be disposed of properly.  Aren’t you glad you never had a meal at HiCaliber?

So here is the house.  Manson went to great lengths on live telling us all this was because she only had 36 hours to get out.  Hmm.  Even if that was so, she was sitting in her car eating Chik Fil A doing live feeds for part of it.  We’re also supposed to forget that she hadn’t paid her rent since last June.  I’m guessing she would have had to guess she gonna get the boot if she didn’t fix that up  At any rate, this is way more than 36 hours worth of filth and cat shit in that littler box.  Remember how she’s had her followers posting pics and making fun of other people and rescues for the conditions of their place and none of them had dead fucking animals stuffed in the freezer with their food. Just saying…

myway

This is probably enough to digest for one day.  There will be several other pics and videos coming out (if they haven’t already) from news sources and other advocates.  I will get back with y’all in a couple of days.  I have the guest post to end all guest posts sitting in the queue, so watch this space.
